I’m really annoyed right now. I’m not bothering with a header image. I am just going to write what I’m feeling.
This may not be a big deal to you, but this is really getting on my nerves.
In afternoon registration today we were allowed to read, complete homework, or do something quietly. So OBVIOUSLY I chose reading.
The inconsiderate bit sitting next to me takes my book, reads the blurb, then takes the piss out of it while he sits there reading Game of Thrones no5. Currently I’m reading Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven, and yeah, I know that it seems a little corny and cliche, blah blah, but I actually find it quite sweet sometimes.
And there he goes, making me feel embarrassed about what I’m reading.
We aren’t even friends. And there he goes dissing MY book, that has no affect on him, for the entire time. I don’t know whether he was joking, or not, but he made me feel embarrassed when I had no reason whatsoever to be. I have never judged him for reading The Game Of Thrones Series, and I just wish he would get a filter and not just say whatever he wants regardless of everyone else’s feelings.
I would NEVER judge someone on what they’re reading, even if I don’t like the genre. And every time I read my book in registration, he either says that it sounds crap, or cheesy and cliche. EVEN IF I’M READING THE GREAT GATSBY OR SIX OF CROWS, HE CALLS THEM “CLICHE”. Does he know the definition of that word?
I’ve decided that I’m calling this “book-shaming”. It may already be a thing, but that’s what I’m calling it.
I hate it so much, and it effects me. I don’t care if people who don’t like reading don’t understand why I feel that way, what mattress that I feel it.
URG. I’m really annoyed right now. Have you been “book-shamed”?
