Happy Wednesday, everyone! Hope you're all having a great week!
I came across this little gem on Facebook a while ago and thought I'd share it with you. "Going to the grocery store just isn't a priority when the fate of a fictional character is hanging in the balance."
So I was wondering, have you ever neglected priorities, obligations, or even just your 'to-do' list for the sake of a fictional character? If you're really enjoying the book your reading, do you have a hard time putting it down until you're finished?
For me, a book that I love that made me neglect my priorities was The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I bought the book right after Thanksgiving of 2010, when I was still an undergraduate student. I decided to open it and read a few pages one day, during the middle of semester finals week. Boy, was that a mistake! I had a 16 page paper to write for a class on postcolonial fiction. I'd procrastinated and it was due in two days! But I could NOT put The Hunger Games down! So what did I do? Well...I spent a day reading The Hunger Games and then wrote a 16 page research paper in one day. Surprisingly enough, I got a B+ on the paper. Moral of the story: I don't know, you tell me lol.
Someday, I hope that my books, like SHADOW HUNTER, will be enough of a page-turner that someone can't put it down either.
What's a book that's done this to you? Leave your answer in the comments. Til Friday ;-)
