Is it just me or who else gets a little sad when u finish a good book?Is it just me or who else gets a little sad when u finish a good book ? Zoey #questionnaire
I do. sometimes i can’t read the next book on my list because i need to digest the book i just finished.
I feel my life doesn’t make sense everytime I finish a good book
Me after finishing Metro 2033
I always feel a little sad and need time to process before starting a new book.
? A “book hangover” ?
I do every time!!! When I read the Rama series by Arthur C. Clarke, I kid you not for about 2 months I missed the characters as if they were friends that moved away!
It takes me a couple of days to start the next book
I was super sad after finishing How To Stop Time, cause it was such a good story that I wished it didn’t have to end
Me too. Sometimes, as I’m getting closer to the end, I slow my reading so it takes longer to finish.
No me too. The harderst part is that I can’t find a good book again for a long time
Bite your tongue!
I do too
This is why I either read really long books or several in a series. If it’s a regular sized novel and I really like the characters, I tend to put off the last hour or two of the book for a week or so, just so it won’t end yet.
I’m actually going through this right now! I read & was absolutely blown away by Joyce Carol Oates’ A Book of American Martyrs — over 700 pages & I didn’t want it to end but at the same time felt it ended perfectly. I’m still reading other books but I’m struggling with wanting to find a book that makes me feel the same way!
I do also
All the time!
it depends on the ending i guess
Sometimes I even need a day or two off from starting a new book to let the loss of the other book sink in and give it the merit it deserves, especially if it was a really good book
If there isn’t another in the series, . . . I get very bummed. ?
some books are so good, you almost hate to see them end.
And a series that you’ve enjoyed right the way through ☹
I just finished a series and I knew the end was coming but it still left me sad to put the book down. I just wanted a little longer with my new found friends!
Book hangovers are the worst. What’s worse is not wanting a book to end so you’re reading slowly, and accidently end because there is a sneak peek chapter at the end of the book.
Yes I do!
Alwaaaays! … I have actually had a few that I wont purposely finish..
because its just too good to end.
So I leave it .. as an open chapter.
bit like life really
And move on.. till I wana know how … it could be.
I get excited, then sad, then excited about the sequel, then nervous the sequel won’t be as good. All in about 2 minutes lol
I finished Inferno this morning. Looked at all my books on my shelves and pouted to my husband I had nothing to read because I was depressed the story ended. I get in a “world” and want to stay there 🙁
I didn’t wanna start a new book and “go somewhere else”
What about Origins? It’s the next Robert Langdon! I just bought it for hubby and he’s loving it so far.
I get freaked out during the ending of a book , thinking about what to read next ???
I go through all five stages of grief, okay lol
I purposely stopped reading twilight series lol
Me every time because I become so immersed in their world that I don’t want to come out of it.
Yes I so do but really quite like series and prolific writers lol
I do to ?
I do feel sad often. Saddest was when I completed Dreiser’s ‘Sister Carrie’.
May be I’m too
