Discussion Post: What do you do when you finish an amazing book and your family could care less?
Linking back to Feed Your Fiction Addiction, and to It Starts At Midnight who host the 2015 Discussion Post challenge.
My Discussion Topic This Week - What do you do when you finish an amazing book and your family could care less?
Let's me explain what I mean by that first. So the other night, I finished this book that had me in tears at the end. It was a roller coaster of a book. It had absolutely everything that I love in a book. There was humor, suspense, a poignant heartbreak, people overcoming obstacles, a hot romance, etc... It was just 100,000 types of awesome.
I finished the book, turned to my husband and said "pause the tv, you have to hear about this book I just finished." I launched into a detailed description of how amazing this book was and at the end he says, "sounds cool."
I just stared for a good minute, then un-muted the tv. When I read an awesome book, I want to gush over it, and I want someone else to gush with me.
So I get to gush over these books when I write my reviews, but I'm still left with the "no one's gushing back" part. I want to discuss every detail, see what another person thinks, hear their thoughts and see if they interpreted it the way I did.
Are you like me? How do you do it then?
