I have a feeling that today’s Stop & Chat is going to make for a fun and lengthy discussion! And you know that makes me giddy!
I know that’s a pretty broad topic but let me explain. We all have the experience of waiting and pinning for a book counting down the seconds till you can finally crack it open and dive right in. The the moment comes! You have it in your hands, you’re a few chapter in and the excitement is still fresh but then you continue. Your excitement dies and you realize it’s not what you wanted. Not what you anticipated. You are disappointed.
It happens with library books, ARCs, pre-orders even books you forgot you had just to rediscover while rearranging your shelves! But I want to know how you handle these bits of disappointment. Personally, I latch onto twitter. I rant, I live tweet even screen shot dialogue. Anything to let out my frustration minus spoilers. Shelly, I’ve found, puts all those thoughts and feels into her review. Some people power through the book just to unleash a review so powerful it sticks with readers through sequels, cover changes and movie adaptations. How do you handle disappointing reads?
