Do you have a material weakness? Is there a section in the shops that you just can’t walk past without stopping? I personally have two. Even if I only have £10.00 left, I still feel myself quickly placing my hand in my pocket, digging around for the last of my money, and handing it over to the cashier. It’s as if I’ve gone into a greed driven trance, and my desire is so strong, that I can’t leave the shop until I own it.
I see it.
I. Must. Have. It!
My first weakness is boots. High heeled boots, flats, long boots, ankle boots, suede, leather, snugly, you name it. I just can’t resist. Every time I pass a pair I go ‘Ooooh I love those!’ and a lot of the time, they end up coming home with me! I don’t even wear boots that much, I just like to stare and appreciate them where they sit in my wardrobe….
My second weakness, is books. (which okay, since I have a book blog, that was probably pretty obvious right?)
But I do.
I have a serious problem.
When I walk into the book store, it’s like I loose control of my body, I want to jump up and down like a 4 year old, I want to touch all the beautiful covers, smell each book, touch their pages. A book store is my version of heaven. And Libraries come in close second.
So when I got a huge package from the Book People today, I could barely contain my excitement.
Guess what was in it?
Seven, shiny new, unread books.
So I went up to my room to put them on my book shelves, and umm….they wouldn’t fit. Then I started to really look at the book shelves, and noticed there were so many that I still haven’t read.
27 in fact.
And that’s not even including all the hand me down books from my mum stuffed in a cupboard.
And the huge list of books I have ready for potential Christmas presents.
So this is the part, where I’m kinda hoping for some help from you guys. My small list of followers, that means you! Plus, anyone else who stumbles across this post! 🙂
Below is a photo of the 27 books that I haven’t read yet. I was wondering if any of you had any specific requests from these for me to review first? Perhaps there’s a book in the picture you’ve been considering buying for a while, but your not 100% sure so you haven’t taken the plunge and bought it?
Or maybe there’s a particular book in the picture that you want to recommend I read first because you’ve read it and it’s so damn good!?
I’d love some feedback!
And I’m also curious. What’s your material weakness?
