Ok so today’s Stop & Chat is kind of embarrassing for me to admit because I feel like a total weirdo. Let me give you a scenario…. let’s say you’re reading a book you’ve been itching to get your hands on. You’re loving the characters, you’re loving the plot, you’re loving the world building and the writing is simply beautiful. You are full on LOVING this book! So much so you’ve made it to the 40/50% mark! And then, for whatever reason you put said awesome book down and that’s all she wrote. You didn’t DNF it, not really, but you just lost interest and kind of forgot about it….
This happens to me ALL THE FREAKING TIME! I don’t know why or how or even if I’m doing it on some weird subconscious level because I can’t handle the awesome and I’m not ready for it to end but ARGH!
The most recent victim of this madness? Firstlife by Gena Showalter. An ARC! An ARC with this amazing beautiful cover that basically DEMANDS to be read cover to cover in one sitting!
And yes I had to make the cover that big because LOOK AT IT! IT IS FUCKING STUNNING IN ALL IT’S GLORY DAMMIT!
Erm sorry about that….
Anywho! Am I alone in this? Has anyone else been just completely overwhelmed with how good a book is going that they put it down and just forget about it? Or maybe the book wasn’t mind blowing. Maybe you sat it down even though you liked it so far and just forgot about it? Help me not feel like a total weird below in the comments!
