How To Break Up With A Book (Without Remorse)

‘Around the world, black hand prints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.’

Right? Right??

I dive into my blanket and begin. Then, somewhere down the road… I get bored. So bored I start checking how many pages I have left. Start thinking about all the cool stuff I could be doing, but nooo…here I am gritting my teeth, flat lining on page 156.


Why the change of heart?


…I don’t know.


Not every story you read is going to turn you on. Think of it like Wall Street: sometimes you win, other times you lose. This time you lost and that’s okay. This is what I want you to do next: snap that book shut, tuck it away on your shelf (or E-library) and bow your head deeply in respect. It was not meant to be.


On to the next adventure.


P.S– The synopsis about the winged strangers and black handprints is just an example of the kind of stuff I love to read. It’s from a trilogy called Daughter of Smoke & Bone, which I’m actually going to devour at some point. Let’s hope it’s as good as it sounds.
