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.
I haven’t read the last of The Others series yet.
Totally agree! I haven’t read the last in the Rylee Adamson series by Shannon Mayer(#10 I think?!) and I have bought the first of the spin off once that series ends. Part is picking up the series again after a bit, waiting for the next to come out and part is not wanting to say goodbye to the characters and the world…. Same with the Darynda Jones Charley Davidson series… I dive in for a few books but make sure I still have more in the series in my tbr so I can dive in again when new ones are released.
I’m a marathon reader too!! I can’t stop reading!! My hubby says you’re addicted again!! Yup!! I love when the whole series is out there. Click click click!! I can’t take those cliffys!!!! I can’t stop reading & get so sad when the series is over!! Need vodka or wine!! I read every day every chance I get!! As soon as I finish one book I have to start reading another!! No digesting the book because it gets too sad that it’s over!! Absolutely loved the Fallen Crest series!! So so sad that it’s over!!
I hate cliffys! There I said it. No way no shape no how will you convince me to voluntarily read a cliffy. HOWEVER, if the series is officially finished I will hoover through them. Hi my name is DG and I am a book geek/ booknerd / book addict.
My reading obsession kicked into high gear again a few years ago. I kept finding series that had tons of books already and would check out at least 5 at a time. The downside is you get caught up quickly and then have to wait a year for the next book in the series. I also have 2 books by my fave author just waiting to be read. I love, love, love him but I don’t want to be caught up again! I also have some Anne Rice books collecting dust because I waited too long and feel like I need to read the Vampire Chronicles again. I haven’t bought the latest ones yet either.
I haven’t read the final Cat and Bones book. Just can’t bring myself to do it!
I’m still hanging off on the latest Patricia Briggs/ Mercy Thompsons. I’ve got two I haven’t read. Don’t know why, but I’m just not ready to jump in yet. Have to be in the right mood.
I get major “end of series” heartbreak/book hangover.
I can’t even listen to A Thousand Years song without crying as it brings me through entire Twilight series in my head.
One of my favorite “worlds” is Addicted/Calloway Sisters (by Krista & Becca Ritchie) series of 10 books. I couldnt wait for the last one – “Some Kind of Perfect” to come out, and then it took me 8 months to get the guts to read it. I just didn’t want to say goodbye to these characters I have watched go through so much. They feel so real to me…I need therapy. Just thinking about it makes me weepy.
Of course it took me over a year to return to the world of my beloved Kellan Kyle. “Thoughtful”…..*sighs wistfully *
As much as I loved Consequences series, I have never read Beyond the Consequences book #5. Got to put on the big girl panties for this one.
Is it bad that I enjoy Maryse’s facial expressions almost as much as these confessions??
LOL Leslie!!!!!! *blush* I’m a goof. 😛
Me too! Those are the best part!
Hey… That’s me *giggle*.
And yep, still most definitely qualifies. I am a total marathon reader… Sigh. And this is why Maryse and I are such good book buddies, well that and we have such similar book taste… And nail polish taste, and wine taste… And and and… 😆 *I haven’t read the Experiment in Terror series, can you believe it?*
Experiment in Terror is on my list of books to try for this year!
I haven’t read last EiT either!!! No clue why.
If I check my library, the last real marathon read for me was the Roam Series. Read them all & spinoffs back to back.
