Getting Lost, Or The Book Hangover
Confession time: I'm not such a fan of Stephen King's novel-length work. Love the short stories he pens, but found that when it came to those novels, I was skimming the blah blah. No offense, Mr. King.
So when I saw that this book had 849 pages, I groaned internally. That's, like, three-to-four novels in kid lit. This had better be good.
And it was. I was proven wrong, and found myself bleary-eyed, disappearing with my fat book for hours, avoiding chores (not that I needed help there), pushing my bedtime.
I finished the book. It was good, not that it needs my endorsement. But now I have the dreaded book hangover--that feeling where you don't quite know what to do with yourself now that the story is over.
How 'bout you, YA Sleutheri? Ever have a book hangover? What was the book, and what did you do to get over it?
