“Some books you read. Some books you enjoy. But some books just swallow you up heart and soul.” — Joanne Harris
What was the last book that swallowed you up heart and soul? I realize I’m chasing that feeling. This quote puts the type of book I want to read right now into words. I don’t always want that. Sometimes I just want to enjoy and don’t need it to be this type of read but right now I think I’m chasing that feeling of a book that will hit me that hard. I want to feel markedly changed after reading it. I think it’s been a while since I felt that feeling and I’ve been so earnestly chasing it. I think I just want something to rattle me, change me and make my world look different. That’s a tall order, I know. I don’t know if my expectations are too high or what but I’m having a hard time finding a read like that when I feel like I used to more frequently.
In other news, I’m being swallowed up by my library holds list. I think my eyes were bigger than my stomach so to speak and I have so many library books out and more coming in right now that I’m literally reading nothing besides library books at the moment. I don’t want to take myself off some queues I’ve been on forever but I’m afraid of more coming in 😬😬😬
