How to act normal when books take over your social life

When you're at a wedding, don’t try to ‘ship’ random couples. We understand it, but honey, they don’t.

1. Hide the piles of books.

This is the first step in making yourself seem normal. If there’s no evidence, there are no valid accusations, right?

An extra step: putting away all your Hunger Games posters and Game of Thrones merch isn’t a bad idea either.

2. Go outside!

Try to make new friends! And please, please, please remember that the opening line to every friendship does NOT begin with “Remember that really good part in (insert book name here)…?”

3. Stop the ship.

When you’re at a wedding, don’t try to ‘ship’ random couples. We understand it, but honey, they don’t.

(Ship: to endorse a mainly non-realistic romantic relationship. Ya get the gist.)

4. Forget the lingo.

Speak normally!! No fan talk (OTPs, bae…) and don’t use the language of the last character you read. Mr. Rochester isn’t your time period, nor is his language. Sorry.

 

5. Or…

Next, don’t – ah, you know what? Just forget it all. Being one of them was never your thing, and that’s not really a bad thing. Rejoice!
