I Don’t Like Starting a New Book
So here’s the thing… I don’t like starting a new book.
Yes, it’s true.
Hold on, before you call for reinforcement, let me explain.
There’s a dark black hole between
drooling over admiring the cover of a new book, re-reading the blurb insert black hole and getting sucked right into the story.
I dread the first chapter. I don’t know the characters yet and haven’t got a feel for the story. It’s only when I fall into the rhythm that the world is right again.
Sometimes if I’m lucky when the sun is shining in just the right way and chocolate becomes a vegetable I know just from the first line that I’m going to love the book. But like my 5-star reviews these books are
very extremely rare.
Now that I think of it, this may be why I give up only a few chapters in if I don’t like the story. I used to feel so bad about this. But no more… There are too many great books out there to waste time on those that will be a chore to finish.
Do you like starting new books? Do you know it’s going to be a good book right from the beginning?
