Thoughts I Have When I’m Crushing On A Book Character

OTT PROMPT

THOUGHTS YOU HAVE WHEN YOU ARE CRUSHING ON A CHARACTER

Are you even a booknerd if you don’t have a crush on at least 5000 book characters? I think not. It’s an inevitable side-effect of reading books. The books steal your heart and so do certain characters, it’s completely normal, at least in the bookish community. So what better than gushing about what thoughts you have as you develop a crush on that fictional character!

 

THOUGHTS I HAVE WHEN I’M CRUSHING ON A CHARACTER

 

  • You know what? I’m starting to really like this character

 

  • Aww they’re so freaking adorable

 

  • *dreamy sigh*

 

  • Can the author stop describing how beautiful they are? I could drool right now

 

  • OH MY GOD SUCH PERFECTION

 

  • I MUST PROTEC!

 

  • *hugs the book in order to hug the character*

 

  • *daydreams about the character whenever she’s not reading about them*

 

  • BE MINEEEE

 

  • You say that they’re fictional one more time and you won’t live to see the next day

 

  • MY LOVE IS TRUE

 

  • I don’t even know when I fell in love! Was it page 100 or 112? Who knows maybe it was page 55!

 

  • YOU TOUCH A HAIR ON THEIR ARM AUTHOR AND I SHALL COME AT YOU WITH A PITCHFORK

 

  • Why aren’t you real, ughhh

 

  • *starts quoting and talking about the character in real life*

 

  • *obsesses over them to the point her whole family knows about them*

 

  • *finds a person who doesn’t know about the character*

 

  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DO NOT KNOW THAT CHARACTER?! S/HE IS ONLY THE GREATEST LOVE OF MY LIFE!

 

And that’s that until I move onto another fictional crush, I guess? What about you? Remember posting for this prompt is now open and will remain open till midnight of friday, August 2nd. Happy writing!

Thoughts I Have During Readathons

Guess what’s starting the minute this post goes live? Indian Lit Readathon! I talked about this readathon in a post here so I won’t bore you to death but it’s basically a 48hr readathon where we read books by Indian authors, and I’m a co-host! So yeah I’m super pumped up to go into reading mode this weekend and our current OTT prompt is in the spirit of Indian Lit Readathon πŸ™‚

THOUGHTS YOU HAVE DURING READATHONS OR READALONGS

~in the spirit of Indian Lit Readathon~

I personally love taking part in readathons whether they are month long, week long, weekend long or 24hrs. I get this thrill from challenging myself and taking part in as many readathons at a time as possible and I even have a thread on twitter to help me keep track of them. So I’m going to be talking about my overall experience of readathons through my thoughts for this post.

Thoughts I Have When I See A Cafe With Books

All bookworms have a tendency to go crazy whenever they see books, without any care for the place or time, but we do try our best to conceal our crazy feelings. And this is what this time’s Off Tangent Thoughts prompt is about.

THOUGHTS YOU HAVE ON SEEING A LIBRARY/BOOKSTORE/CAFE WITH BOOKS

I have complete freak-outs when I spot books absolutely anywhere, especially when it is unexpected. In this prompt you all can talk about your reactions and thoughts when you come across books in a cafe or libraries or bookstores. I’m personally going to be talking about the thoughts I have when I see a cafe with books. Such places are not that popular in my city so I always freak out when I find one and you’re about to see exactly how.

Thoughts I Have When Someone Reads A Book I Love

Another Saturday brings yet another Off Tangent Thoughts post!

Let’s just quickly get on to the prompt πŸ™‚

OTT PROMPT

THOUGHTS YOU HAVE WHEN SOMEONE READS A BOOK YOU KNOW

I love lending out books to a few of my trusted friends and then tracking the living hell out of their progress. Especially when it’s a book I love at which point I would happily stand over their shoulder and watch their reactions- most satisfying thing ever. But there are other times when one of your online friends doesn’t really love that book that you would sell your soul for or there’s this book you hate but your friends love. Whoops? Today I’m gonna write about what I think when someone reads a book I love.
