Surviving Book Withdrawals

Any book lover worth their salt has experienced those dreaded book withdrawals. When twisting plotlines, emotional scenes, quality characters and intense cliff hangers have taken you on an emotional journey of epic proportions. You can't help but feel emotionally drained after all of that. I myself get incredibly invested in every book I read, to the extent that I'm balling my eyes out with every character death, laughing at witty monologue and pining after every heart wrenching hero/heroine.

Next To Never by Penelope Douglas

journal background

I read this being completely familiar with the Fall Away world. So reading how Jared, Tate, Madoc etc grew up into adults and how they act as parents was so surreal and interesting. I was never Madocs’ dad (Jason) and Jared’s mothers (Katherine) biggest fan. I was the reader rooting for the teenage rebellion against the messed up adults. But this book provided a great backstory to how they both came to be and the strength of their connection to each other.

Introducing My Favourite Authors

It was hard to narrow down my favourite books as I have read so much over the years so I decided to list my favourite authors instead. Some of these haven’t been read in some years but are so good that they have made an impact on my reading tastes and what I value in a piece of text. Although I am introduced to new authors and books all the time, these are the ones that stand out in my mind even now.

Discovering new books

If you’re like me and are always impatient for your next read, then sometimes you find it hard to find a book that you can really sink your teeth into. There are times where I find myself on a roll and can read book after book without losing focus but then there are times where a book may not catch my attention after the first chapter, or I find myself having difficulty getting into the storyline. Luckily, I’ve had a lot of practise and overtime I have been able to construct my own way of finding new books that meet my needs at that particular time.
