Okay this is an older confession since there’s been TWO more books since Grey has had a meltdown, BUT the series is officially complete now, and I can TOTALLY relate to her heartbreak over the potential “end of a book-world” that I’ve been involved in.
In fact I have a confession that goes along with this one (mine is also for an older series but still SO relevant, and I’ve included it after Grey’s).
“*pout* I haz a sad… I just finished Fallen Crest University…
*taps microphone* is this thing on? *feedback squeal* My name is Grey… and *sob* I am a marathon book reader.
I feel safe here… admitting that I am going to be in a massive book hangover. I hate it… I absolutely hate that I get so dang wrapped up into series, *see above confession* and the fact that I have read all of the FCH books in a matter of a few days…and then… *poof* I have to wait months until more come out.
I mean, FCU isn’t a typical cliffy.
Things are wrapped up enough so that the book has an ending and I’m not like I was at the end of King wanting to throw my kindle out the window. But yeah… I am now all keyed up and have been scrolling thru my Kindle (and over a thousand books) and have NO idea where I’m going now.
Who’s got the wine?”
Oh Grey. Boy… do I get you. In fact, I will join your confession circle and throw in my own. You guys KNOW how much I LOVED (LOVE!!!) Karina Halle’s Experiment in Terror Series. In fact, each book got better and better as it went, to the point I was LOSING my mind over each one, totally devouring the love story-aspect (OMG the ANGST and OH-NO-HE-DIDN’T moments), not being able to put them down, losing sleep, and my heart (and my wits!!)… and now?
The series is officially… over.
But… here’s my confession. I haven’t read the last one (Dust to Dust (Experiment in Terror #9) yet. Oh I have it. And I haven’t read the recently released spinoff novel yet either. I simply stared at both books lovingly, knowing that as long as I haven’t read them, it’s not over. At least not for me.
There are still loving, scary, “my favorite old-school indie” book-treats awaiting me as long as I hold off, right? *shakes head* I know. Makes NO sense.
