Am I the only one that gets sad when you’re done reading a good book?Am I the only one that gets sad when you’re done reading a good book? Nina #questionnaire
Nope, i get the same way.
All the time!
I seem to slow down when there’s a few chapters left in a book im enjoying. Sometimes it takes me weeks to finish two chapters … Subconsciously I don’t want it to end either. Lol
I can’t stop reading and stay up to 3 or 4 pm without realizing it.. then it’s bam, over.
I always felt this way even as a child but it hasn’t gotten better!
I think that is how you know it is a good book. If you become so emotionally invested in the characters and their story you mourn the fact your relationship with them is finished, then the author has done their job.
Me too I feel like I lost friends
I feel the same way because I know that the next book won’t even compare.
I got close to depressed about being finished reading To Kill A Mockingbird
I do.but im so excited about my next book it soon passes.i know i can reread it one day if want to.every book read is like making a friend you can revisit one day..
Same over here ?
I do also!!!!!
Yep, I get sad too!
No you are not. That’s why I like series….delays the end?
Yes very sad that it’s hard for me to start reading again which is my case right now
That’s why I love series!
Yes – me too
Nope: you’re not alone!!!!
Oh, my goodness. I’ve done it so many times. The first time I read The Witching Hour by Anne Rice. I cried; I didn’t want it to end. That was 1990. There was no Lasher or Taltos to be chasers. As they came out I read each sequel. But I always wished I could let Ms. Rice know how I felt. Then about two years ago my daughter’s book club chose The Witching Hour, and I re-read it. But by then I knew how to let the author know what I felt. And I did. I have since read everything she wrote, but The Witching Hour still makes me cry. It is simply beautiful.
Oh, I get very sad…last chapters are interrupted with all kinds of things to delay that last page.
Series help, especially if they are ones that I’ve just discovered vs having to wait for the next installment.
No you are not….I am the same…
There have been a few. The characters are so real I want their story to go on and on.
If it’s a really good and emotional book I get sad that it’s over and I have a hard time finding another good one…but eventually I do!
No i really get into a book that i enjoy
Just finished Mama Can’t Raise no Man by @Rob and I can’t get into my next book…sigh
I am always sad when a ggod book ends
Not sad but reflective. I need time (a few hours; a few days) to absorb all I read and think about what is/could be. Then I’m off and running on a new book.
I also am sad when a good book ends
When I get to the end of a series I am sad because it is like losing a friend. I will never know what happens to that friend again. Silly! Probably, but it is how feel.
Nope. And I have to sit or lay and think about the book. Don’t even talk to me if I’ve just finished a good book. I need to process.
Nope. And I envy the people who haven’t read the book yet because they have that ahead of them.
I get really sad when a giid book ends! Sometimes I drag out that last chapter just because!
Nope! Sometimes I don’t want to finish reading because I don’t want it to be over.
My word for that feeling is bereft. What book caused this feeling for u?
No! I read pretty fast but start to slow down as I approach the end of a good book…
I finished Small Great Things and I could not get into my new book, because I was still thinking about this one.
No!! When I finished reading Kitchens of the Great Midwest, I was so sad. I just loved the story, the writing and the characters! I wanted it to go on and on!
No, because they are new wonderful books to enjoy next xx
I do too. Saving the last few pages of The Girl In The Moon, by Terry Goodkind since yesterday because I don’t want it to be over. I’m hoping this is the first book of a series. 🙂
No! I’m always sad to see the last pages of a Louise Penny book! 2 books to go and then I have to wait until the next one comes out in November. AGHHHHHHHHH!
I’m reading them all again. I hope to finish Glass Houses right before her new book comes out. ?
So am i?
No. I go into withdrawal?
Not at all! Gentleman in Moscow I would have read forever!
No I do all the time!
Yes, but it’s a happy kind of sad.
After reading the last in the All Saints trilogy I read the last book again, immediately. Didn’t want the series to end
Definitely no 🙂
Book hangovers are a real thing.
No, I get sad about the one I finish and stressed choosing the next one ?
Especially a series
I sit there for a little while feeling as though the breath got knocked out of me. Whatever will I do now? The grief is real.
No. I do too.
No. I do all the time.
not at all
No if the book is good I read read read as fast as I can, then when I am done I am mad and want to start over lol, I hate it when you finish a good book and have to wait until the next book comes out lol
No Nina! It happens on a fairly regular basis and it’s like I’m in mourning. I just want to talk about it and relive it! ?
You’re not alone.
