Falling For Books

Happy Valentine's Day, my bookish darlings! 



How often do you fall in love with a book? Not like, you think it's really good, or even great. I mean, fallen in so deep that you're sad when you realize that it's a book, and not real life? What does it feel like? I can probably count on one hand the books that I have fallen in love with. Okay...maybe I'd need both hands. There's something that happens when I'm reading, like I've tumbled headlong into a new world, and I'd much rather be there than in my own reality. Anyway, this post was inspired while I was listening to the audiobook of Julie Cross's Tempest. It wasn't far into the book when I just got this goofy grin on my face, and I realized I'd been talking back to Jackson as I was listening. Luckily, I was alone in my car and no one else could hear me. Reading and re-reading these books (or listening to them on audiobook) just brighten my day! So how often do you fall for a book? Do you know what it is that brings on the tumble? What does it feel like?

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day, and that someone touches your heart today (be they real or fiction!) Love to you all!

  1. I always know that I love a book when I start wanting to jump in and laugh, strangle, or just scream "Why!"

  9. Heidi - It's true, I did. I figure, it didn't look too weird, since there are all sorts of hands-free devices for people to use in the car! Happy Valentine's Day!
