Book Addiction Writing Prompt

You can’t put it down. You know you should. Your family tells you to. Your teachers tell you to. But. You. Just. Can’t. Because you are so addicted to “the book!!!”

Today’s Writing Prompt is dedicated to all of you who’ve been there. You’ve done crazy stuff. You’ve forgotten to eat. You’ve worn your brother or sister’s clothes by accident.  You’ve snuck “the book” into the bathroom. (Shhhh!). Gross but true.  You’ve ignored a call from your BFF because you were with “the book.”

You’ve done it. We want to hear it. Today’s Writing Prompt dares you to complete the following:

    One time we finished a test in school, so we got to read until the class was over. I was reading the last harry potter book (Come on fangirls/boys you know you want to freak out over it!) and the bell rang. I was still sitting in my seat and stayed there until, like, five minutes after school was over when my teacher tapped me on the head and told me it was time to go!

    Mhm. So true…
    You can obviously my name ;)
    Okay I shall come clean and tell you all…
    I.Am.A.Percy Jackson lover.
    I can never put down those books.It is some forcefield that holds that suspended “The Book” in air. Not my hands. No my hands would be not moving either. I would stare that “The book” down. I’d even thrown it at a wall once. Then caressed it in my hands saying “Oh bookie poo I am sorry I threw you across my room. It was on purpose because Percy had disappeared and I am sad.”
    I even once had been reading the Haddix-The Missing series and jsut about died.
    I sat done reading one..and the other magically propped up in my hands, my eyelids almost shut because it was midnight. Nonstop conversion of Missing children.
    It is even hard to not tell anyone about the crazy things that happen in these books that just make them irresistible.
    Even if I am a fast reader. I shall pay no attention to anything but those cruel magically published books.
    Amazing how books just take people away…Sorry reading. I am now being taken away ;)

    I am a BOOK LOVER.
    I LOVE books.
    I read lots of series. My favorite series is Warriors by Erin Hunter. When I read a book in that series I can’t put the book down.

    I loved Little Darlings so much my mom wouldn’t allow me to take it to school. Typical. She does that with every book I get hooked up on.
