Addiction toward Series
So, Its also been a long time since I've wrote things like this, and I think with my lack of reading lately. I've missed writing in my blog. >.<
So, lately I've been reading a few post from the blogs that I've been following when I saw one post from Nancy from Tumbling Books. That certain post from her, is actually how she explained how she was a "series quitter". All of her reasons are reasonable, but while reading it I found my own reasons why I like reading series.
I've always been addicted to series. I found myself constantly wanting to read the sequel if its already available. I consider it a bad habit of mine since that because of that certain trait I couldn't concentrate on reading other series. One of my examples would be The Mortal Instruments, I remember reading all of the books straight. I didn't try to read other books because I was just too addicted with it.
I'll go give you all of the reasons about my trait.
1.) I hate waiting for what's going to happen
I have no patience when it comes to the story. As much as I want to savor the story, I tend to finish a sequel on one sitting because of my eagerness to finish it. I hate agonizing and curiosity. So my mindset is always, "Why wait?"
2.) I love seeing how the love story progresses
Whether they break up, get married, get kids, or other things. I want to know it. I tend to obsess over the characters, which usually drives me to finish a book. Like when I started reading Crash (BTW you should definitely check that series out! I looooooooved everything about it) I swear, everybody in the whole house was already asleep, and yet there I was in bed, still reading Crash.
3.) I get queasy when I stop reading a certain sequel
Call it a weird drive or any other thing. But whenever I read a book and loved it. I get squeamish whenever I finish reading. Withdrawal is never a good feeling, and the only way for me to stop feeling that would be to read the next sequel.
4.) Giving a challenge
Call it weird or anything, but I love to see if the author can continue making a series that would still hold my interest. Though I am a series addict. I also tend to get impatient.
So yeah, basically those are the reasons why I'm a series addict. How about you, what's your take about series?
