Attachment Issues.

I'm doing this thing now days that has me quite pleased with myself. I've finally started to read again. Yes, hold your applause ladies and gentleman. But there seems to be a downside to this new great habit. One that has opened my eyes as to why I stopped reading in the first place.
I do this thing where I get really into what I'm reading, well assuming it's a good book worth reading, so by the time I'm done reading I'm waaaay too attached to the characters and story line. Way more attached any anyone should be, at least. this causes me to go through a mandatory grieving period, the extent of which is determined by the attachment formed while reading. For example, some books I've read only take a day to get over but others, which I shall not mention for I am ashamed, have taken much longer than that, weeks to months.
I just finished Graceling today. Sigh. And yes, the grieving period has begun.

P.S. I may or may not start updating this regularly. You'll find out soon enough, whoever you are.
