Thoughts I Have While Reading A Boring Book

OTT PROMPT

5TH SATURDAY FREEBIE!

Its a 5th Saturday which means you can write on any prompt you want or catch up with a previous OTT prompt that you missed on. Today I’ll be talking about the thoughts I have while reading a boring book. Usually if a book is boring I’ll DNF it but when it comes to ARCs and review copies one doesn’t really have a choice…

 

 

THOUGHTS I HAVE WHILE READING A BORING BOOK

 

  • You know what this isn’t that bad…

 

  • Nah, I can’t even believe that lie for a second ugh

 

  • I mean I was so sure that I would love it! But now turning every page feels like a chore 😦

 

  • Damn it the blurb was super exciting but god this writing style makes it feel like someone is stabbing me in the heart every single sentence

 

  • STOP DOING MUNDANE STUFF OH MY GOD

 

  • I swear if I come across one more information dump I shall burn this book down

 

  • *groans and screams and slams the book in her face out of despair*

 

  • God I’ve been reading since forever, I must be at least halfway through this book now

 

  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT HAS BEEN JUST 10 PAGES?

 

  • *looks at her other books longingly*

 

  • *stares into space and hopes that the book will disappear out of her hands*

 

  • Noooo how many times do I have to say that I’m not interested in that character??

 

  • WHY MUST YOU REPEAT THIS, I GET THE POINT. I GOT IT AFTER YOU MENTIONED IT 3 TIMES ON ONE PAGE

 

  • *falls asleep on the book*

 

  • Why is this book all ‘tell’ and no ‘show’ ughhh

 

  • Can we stop with all these backstories now??

 

  • How long is this book, stop torturing me!

 

  • *rewards herself after finishing every chapter*

 

  • OMG I’M ALMOST DONE!!!!

 

  • I swear these last few pages are never-ending

 

  • *skims through the rest of the book*

 

  • AND I SURVIVED THE ORDEAL, WOHOOOO!!!!

 

This is partly inspired from the book I’m currently reading and hoping to finish soon. Emphasis on hoping, haha.

Posting for this prompt is now open and will remain open till midnight of Friday, September 6th.

So what do you think? Will you be participating in this prompt?

Do you DNF boring books or power through?

Which was the last book you read that put you to sleep? Hopefully I can avoid that…

Happy blogging, I’ll see you all another day!

  1. BWAHAHAH. I always enjoy your OTT posts and this one is so relatable oh my God. Especially the darn Only-Ten-Pages syndrome.

    You know how when exam time comes and you find EVERYTHING that’s never been interesting before interesting? I swear I become that way when reading a boring book.

    For example,

    Me: *trying to read*
    Phone: *doing absolutely nothing*
    Me: Hmmm what? Did you say something?
    Phone: I didn—
    Me: Come here. I’m sure there’s something exciting developed into the alarm clock app.

    Exhibit 2.

    Me: *trying to read*
    Me: *looks up for 0.0000000382 seconds*
    Me: *gasps* That crack in the wall looks exactly like a person!
    Me: *calls whole world* *takes picture and shares that* *discusses with anyone on the profound ability of man to see something in everything*
