Have you ever walked into a stranger’s house, noted all the photographs of their pug on the walls, the clearly-never-touched grand piano, and the pristine, uncomfortable chairs and wanted to scream to yourself WHERE ARE YOUR BOOKS YOU MONSTER?
If the answer is yes, this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is for you.
I like books.
This week’s Book Blogger Hop question really appeals to me because I’m an awkward muffin and I have a really difficult time finding topics of conversation. I have a hard time following conversations although GOODNESS KNOWS that I like to butt into everyone’s.
This week’s prompt is:
When you enter an unfamiliar house or apartment for the first time, do you feel disappointed if you don’t see any bookshelves, or books on the coffee table?
If you don’t have books or AT LEAST some clear form of pop culture love SOMEWHERE easily visible in your house, I don’t know what to do with you.
What will we talk about? The weather? Everybody’s health? DO YOU WATCH MOVIES AT LEAST.
Unfortunately, even in a world where people are finally reading YA and watching Sci-Fi, it’s still not easy to discuss things.
I don’t distrust non-bookish people, necessarily, because we can usually talk about films. HOWEVER. I have the rottenest luck because most people I meet IRL are really into thrillers and romance and drama and that stuff is okay, I suppose, but THERE ARE DRAGONS AND SUPERHEROES GUYS.
I have Backup Plans
Fortunately, I have always been a resident Harry Potter expert (excluding Pottermore and The Cursed Child because NO), and a lot of people will talk about that, worst case scenario. Us 90s kids are hopelessly nostalgic.
Also a lot of people look at me like I’m a child and ought to do grown up things like read non-fiction books about finance and have all my furniture in white.
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy on Ramblings of a Coffee Addict. Each week, bloggers answer a different question about their own lives or reading habits.
