The name says it all, Book Blogger Confessions. We all have our vices, and when I come across other confession posts I am always left saying "I thought I was the only one!"
This will be a weekly(sporadic) post for me where I post my confessions, a rant, a what grinds my gears segment... anything! This space is going to be used to get it off my chest! Feel free to do up your own post, and if you want to share it, just link in the comments!

Squeeing at Books other people are buying
Okay! Working at a Bookstore part-time I tend to do this A LOT. When I see that customer purchasing a copy of The Fault in Our Stars or The Perks of Being a Wallflower, I can't help but get all giddy and tell them how much they will love the book! But, I also have a bad habit of doing this while shopping at a bookstore. If I'm browsing the YA section and I see someone reading the summary for an epic book, I can't help but just blurt out to them "Get it! Get it now, and devour it!"
I either get 2 expressions:
The person will be so pleased that I loved this book, and they are eager to run home and start the book so they can devour it's awesomeness. Then we usually get chatting about other book epicness.
Or I'll get this reaction..
I get total stink eye because I completely invaded this person's personal space; They were in no way looking for a personal opinion about the book they are holding in there hand. I then turn into a blabbering mess just saying how much I loved the novel, and I would recommend it. They usually put the book back on the shelf right in front of me, and walk the opposite direction.
When it comes to those awesome books, sometimes I just can't contain myself, and I want the person to know how awesome it is, in hopes that they do purchase it, and embark on the same wonderful adventure I once had!
Have you ever recommended a book to a total stranger?
