NEVER HAVE I EVER . . . read a book I knew I would not like

No, although I do have some famous books I don’t really like…

NEVER HAVE I EVER . . . wrote a fanfiction about my favorite books

Again, no I haven’t. I didn’t even know that was a thing 🀣

NEVER HAVE I EVER . . . loved a book when I was young, yet disliked it when I got older

*rusty gears in my brain creaking* I don’t… think so? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

NEVER HAVE I EVER . . . dressed up as one of my favorite literary characters

Haha, nope! That sounds like fun though. πŸ˜„

NEVER HAVE I EVER . . . disliked a book by an author I love

I think I do. I don’t want to say it in public, since that might hurt the author. πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ

NEVER HAVE I EVER . . . gone into a bookstore to buy one book and come out with many more

This has happened to me when I go to the library 🀭

NEVER HAVE I EVER . . . read the end of a book before reading the beginning

Unless it’s a book that isn’t interest in my opinion, I haven’t before πŸ˜›
