I’ve talked about how hard it is to choose my next book and how the process can put me in a panic sometimes. But I’m not going to talk about that again. No, this time I’m going to talk about a entirely different emotion….
At the moment, I am nearing the end of a very dense, long, and completely fascinating biography. I have loved reading this book, but it takes me longer to read nonfiction than it does fiction and I’ve been at this book for a couple of weeks now. I honestly believe I’ll finish in the next 3 or 4 days. And while this biography is setting me up to read more about that time period or other notable persons, and because I know that the hero of this book dies in the end, I am a little sad to finish. I am going to miss this book. BUT I am so excited to read other things!!
I can tell you right now that I am going to go on a Young Adult Lit reading binge for at least three or four books. Sure those books can be a little high on drama or tackle heart-wrenching issues ; and I feel like I need that right now. I want a little swoony romance. I want to get lost in the art of a graphic novel or two. I might even reread an old favorite and feel the comfort of that. I don’t know which book will reach my hand next, and I can’t wait to find out.
I know I’m not alone in this. What kind of book do you grab when you are in this situation?
