Book Blogger Hop - 4/17 - 4/23

 Question of the Week:

Ending a book I loved is sad and beginning a new one is apprehensive for me. What about you?

My Answer:

When I finish a book I loved, I can't get the characters out of my mind and think about them for at least a week or so.

I wonder what they are doing or what they would have done had the book continued.

Beginning a new book after a great read is always difficult until you get to about Page 50 and become acquainted with the new characters and story.

How do you feel in these situations?

  1. I'm thankful I can generally jump into another book right away but since I've been thinking about this question I've realized that I tend to switch genres - especially after I finished a book I really loved. I hadn't realized that before so it's fun to learn something new about the way I read!

  2. Hi there - If I really fell in love with the characters, I find it hard to get them out of my mind and do think about them for a week or more.

  3. I said it's always bittersweet to end a book I love. The Characters hold me and sometimes the setting. I don't want to leave!

  4. Finishing a book I love is always bittersweet and it take me a day or two to recover. Lol! But it's good to start a new especially if its something youve waited for.

    1. I agree....if you love a book you hate it to end and keep thinking about the characters. I know I do. :)

  5. I often have trouble deciding which book to read next because of the many waiting in my piles.

    Thanks for visiting my post last Friday. Sorry for the delayed response--I was having computer issues.

    1. Glad to see you were able to stop by today.

      It is difficult to choose the next book. I solved this and made it easy, though, because I do it by publication date and requests by publishers. :)

      Thanks for stopping, Catherine.

  6. I totally agree. I love/hate great books for that reason. I want them to never ever end.
