9 Things All Bookworms Can Relate To
A Cozy Experience

If you know a bookworm, or if you are a bookworm, these should ring true!

You hate getting interrupted

Anyone who knows a bookworm, knows better than to interrupt them while they’re reading. There’s absolutely nothing worse for a bookworm then being interrupted at a very good part of the book. It’s hard to pick back up where you left off once you’ve been knocked out of place. This seems to happen often, as people tend to try and start up a conversation with you about the book that you’re reading.

When you say “Hang on, one more page!

This is basically code for “it’ll be a while”. If a bookworm says this to you as you are waiting to leave, you had best find a book of your own to read – because it’s going to be a while. There isn’t really ever a good stopping place in a book. Authors don’t write books with commercial breaks. Your best course of actions is to just wait until your bookworm reaches the end of a chapter.

The worst question is “What’s your favorite book?”

Asking a bookworm what their favorite book is, is the equivalent of asking a parent who their favorite child is. True, some parents do have their favorites, but generally this is a taboo question. There are so many genres, so many authors, and so many different writing styles – resulting in too many books to choose from.

The book is always better than the movie

There are two ways a book-based movie could go – bad, and very bad. While reading the book before watching the movie is good for gaining contextual information, it can make it hard to enjoy the movie. The best way I’ve learned is to view the two as separate entities, and appreciate them both for their separate qualities.

You prefer real books over eBooks

Reading a book from an iPad, iMac, or iPhone is not, and

will not ever be, the same as reading a book that you can see, smell, and

touch. Books generally have a very good ‘book smell’, and turning the pages is

both therapeutic and satisfying. Reading from a hand-held device’s lighted

screen is not as fulfilling as reading printed words.

Bringing books to social events just in case it’s boring

For some, buying shoes is an unhealthy passion that they obsess over. For others, it is the constant need for a new book. Libraries are great in that you have nearly an unlimited amount of no-charge access to books. The downside, however, is having to return them after two weeks. Bookstores are an amazing place where bookworms can browse for their next companion. The downside, however, is that you end up spending more money than you had originally planned to.

Staying up late to finish a book

If the book is good enough, putting it down is very, very hard. This leads to a bookworm staying up until ungodly hours, just to finish the book. When you're little, you might grab a flashlight and read underneath the covers. When you move out and have your own place, you find that the habit has stuck.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
