  1. OMG I relate to 4, 6, (except with library books and books I want to buy instead of ebooks) 8, 10, 12, (especially right now) sometimes 13, 14 (ESPECIALLY with Liz Braswell’s Disney retelling series. UGH that still frustrates me! D: ) 16 is DEFINITELY what’s happening to me right now, I think EVERYONE can relate to 17, 18 and 19, luckily 23 has never really happened to me, 27 happened to me recently D,: D,: , 33 and 38 has DEFINITELY happened to me, :/ and 40 is so frustrating! Especially when I don’t have many good bookstores near me. D:

  2. 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 16, 20, 21, 30, 32, 36, 39 are such moods. Hell, the whole list.

    I try to always have my kindle with me, but the few times I forget it, it’s always a time when I’d need it the most. Always.

  3. 33 of those fit me. Holy hell that’s a lot, haha!

    The biggest one right now, though? MOVING. We moved a month ago but we still have a ton of painting to do so I can’t set up my library yet and it’s KILLING ME. [The actual packing of books killed me a million times already though so I must be immortal or something.]

      1. RIGHT? I actually packed them up in sessions. Like. One week all the books I had read already, then the books on my favorite shelves, then the books I simply knew wouldn’t get high on my TBR any time soon and then I started procrastinating because I wanted to read all the ones left and didn’t want to risk packing them.. :’)

          1. YUP. And then I couldn’t stand the sight of my empty shelves and I ended up hauling them to another room where I wouldn’t see them every day, all day as soon as I got home because it broke my heart seeing them all empty! [But we bookworms are entirely normal creatures.]

  4. this entire post is a mood sam….an ENTIRE MOOD and all you peasants who don’t read and judge us should learn from this post. *sniffs* you don’t know the trauma of mid series cover changes, or not finding the paperback copy with the nice cover (it happens and I’m forever salty because I’m a paperback gal)
