How me having a book boyfriend has now become a threesome, with my husband
In the summer of 2018, I was counting down for weeks over a book. This was one of my favorite authors, so I repeatedly told my family they had to leave me alone on release day. The release day came, and I devoured those pages. Over the next few days my husband kept making comments that sounded familiar, but I couldn’t figure out why then on day 3 I realized he was saying stuff out of the book I had just finished. He saw how excited I was about the book and he started it on his phone without telling me. He ended up reading that whole series then he read another and another. He read my favorite contemporary romance, then my favorite paranormal and mow he’s reading my favorite mob series.
As he read through each series, I would post updates on his thoughts and comments of the book, the characters and other randomness in the author’s group. His reactions to the contemporary romance and the paranormal were chill but throughout this mobster series there were times I thought his head would explode. He hates the main character that I love. He has questioned my sanity, the author’s sanity, and my sister-wife (who isn’t only a person that shared book boyfriends with me but I also know in real life) he said he will never look at us the same again, so we laugh and then I post about his horrified reactions.
People seemed to have as much fun with it as we were having so over the holidays, we spent some time talking about the idea of doing a blog together and here we are.
I want to make sure it’s clear that he’s reading these books because I asked him to and his views will probably be different than mine and those opinions are his, from a male perspective his views on the anti-heroes or straight up assholes will probably be words different than my view on those characters. This is just for fun, to make people smile or shake their head at this ridiculousness but it is in no way meant to be disrespectful or hurtful to any authors of the books he reads and comments on.
*When he started saying negative things about the characters in the mob series, I messaged the author because I didn’t want to post negative things about her characters in her group. I absolutely adore her and would never want to be disrespectful to her in any way. She messaged me and gave me the ok to keep sharing because as she said it was nice having a male point of view on a group of characters that were not a cookie cutter romance. *
I will be talking about books more often than #ReadingHusband because I read at least one book a day and that is not a possibility for him. I will be sharing my favorites and other book related things I hope you all find the humor in this and it brings a smile to your face because that will mean the world to me.
