The Book Buying Addiction||❤

Hello there,
It seems like all I write are discussion posts but I'm not a big fan of writing reviews anymore and discussions are my favourite. Today I will be talking about the dreaded book buying addiction. By that I mean prioritising books over e.g. clothes or even snacks sometimes. Yes people, I will not buy my beloved peperamis so I can buy books. (I'm not allowed them but I buy them anyway from  Asda!). It has come to a point where I am buying books because I am feel sorry for myself or I buy books because I'm suddenly on Amazon for no reason. Please comment if you feel the same way.

I never used to buy books that often. I loved using the library, both my local and my school. I wasn't bothered to buy books and I was more interested in bad looking clothes and nail polish. That faze went on up until probably around May/June this year when I decided to stop spending money on crap and start to build my YA book collection. Although it might sound like an excellent thing it has become a complete addiction.

When I'm outside the first place which I rush into is Waterstones, where I proceed to grab as many books as I can. The worst part is the fact that my local Waterstones has a Costa on the second floor, who do the best hot drinks ever, and it just makes me feel so cosy and nice. Cosyness=books=buying books=drinking coffee&reading books. I'm constantly ordering new books with money which I didn't even know I had in my bank account and it has just become a norm to me.

The only reason I am writing this post is because I feel like I'm becoming more materialistic but at least I'm not addicted to buying designer bags!

  1. I've always thought that buying books was the best way to go, but in the end, things just started piling up and I realized that it was so much easier to borrow or buy scratch and dent copies. Now, I rarely go to the bookstore! But I do like to treat myself at the bookstore sometimes too ;)

  2. I am just like you. I love buying new books and I cannot help myself :)
