I have a problem.

Today, I bought the sequel to Delirium by Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium. I only just started reading the first book, so it better be good!

I also ordered Divergent by Veronica Roth and its sequel, Insurgent on Amazon. Those will be here by Friday. (Hooray for 6 months free of Amazon Prime Student! [free two day shipping]) I also have two books to pick up at the library on Thursday: Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler and The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler. I'm particularly excited about the latter because 13 Reasons Why was so great (and Mackler's books have always been enjoyable). If you want to feel sort of empty and definitely sad, read it. It was amazing. I renewed The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. That's good until the 17th of July. I wanted to save it.

So let's take a quick recap:

I bought three books today. I have three from the library. I have a few on hold. I'm reading a book, obviously. I have a WHOLE bunch of books on my bookshelf and in my nook waiting to be read. Books I've had for years even. Sequels, brand new series, new novels, and new authors that are desperate to be explored by me. 

And I keep. Buying. Books. 

I can't help it. 

I had Divergent on hold for a while. I was number 27 of 33 at the library, and I was number 228 of 264 on the eBook library. I didn't want to wait, even though I have a plethora of books to read right here in my bedroom. 

I just don't want to read any of those at this moment. I want books that I don't have. Isn't that the way things always are, though? 

So, there it is. I have a problem. I am a bibliophile. I'm addicted. And that's okay by me.

Anyone else in a similar situation? Have any new books to share?


  1. I LOVE the Delirium series! One of my favorite series! Lauren Oliver is amazing! I think you really will like it. And you know I'm the same as you with books!! :)

  2. Also, I really want to read the Future of Us. I've been dying to read it!

  3. Hahah! I know you are. I've had the book for a while and have been desperate to read it. So, I'm really excited. It's really great so far.
