14 Signs You Are Obsessed With a Book Character

If there’s any obsession that can be deemed “healthy,” it’s a book obsession (at least according to us book lovers). Sometimes we get so emotionally involved with a book and its characters that they seem to become a part of our own lives. Our favorite characters have influenced us in ways we may not even realize. Here are 14 signs you are obsessed with a character. Let us know what we’re missing! 

1. You casually talk about where you’ve read the book as if you were with your favorite character. 

“Holly Golightly and I had a great day shopping.” 

 

2. You are too excited when you hear a movie adaptation is coming out.
