I'm having separation anxiety.

April 17, 2012

If you follow me on Twitter you saw I finished the Hunger Games series.

1. If you haven't read it yet, do so.
2. Your life will be nonexsistent while reading.
3. Your dreams will turn to all things Hunger Games.
4. Expect tears. Or maybe that was just me but whatever.
I also purchased Taylor Swift-- Eyes Open & Safe and Sound and have been listening non-stop.
I mean like on repeat during my 50 minutes drive to|from work, while I run daily and during the quick clean around the house before hubs gets home.


No shame people.
I get so wrapped up when I'm reading whether it's
Hunger Games
Harry Potter
P.S. I love you
Anything: Emily Giffin or Jane Green
Nicholas Sparks

-- but I feel so attached and close to the story line.
Like I am the one jumping in the arena or casting spells or even eating deer instead of people.
Too much??

Does everyone else feel this way reading?
Do you all get attached and excited for what's to come even when you've read the book 20 times?
Do you get warm|fuzzies when you hear a song from the soundtrack?

Because of these books I have a few things I'd like to do before I die:
+Go to Hogwarts
+ Drink Butterbeer-- & it has to be at the Three Broomsticks!
+Take a cake decorating class from Peeta
+Take a hike to the lake with Katniss
+Re-do our wedding to resemble Edward & Bella's from Breaking Dawn
+............. stay a month in Forks far away from the AZ heat!
Maybe one day.



  1. omg, I'm OBSESSED with the Hunger Games series...I started reading them after they first came out and I was so hooked that by the time the 3rd one came out I had finished the 2nd one in a day and a half and same with the 3rd one and was SO sad when it was over so I completely get what you're saying! :)

    Have a great week!

  2. Hahaha you sound just like me!
    I'm the exact same way & I literally feel depressed when I finish a series that I read.
    All of the ones you mentioned have left me feeling that way!

    Adam thinks I' crazy! But I'm glad I'm not the only one like that ;)

    Take me with you on you fantasy bucket list travels, please!


  3. I totally know what you mean! After the Hunger Games I was so sad - I almost re-read them just b/c I missed the characters so much! :)

  4. I know what you mean! Although I have yet to read the 2nd and 3rd hunger games books. I loved the first one. It seems like we have similar reading tastes. I'm all about Nicholas Sparks haha :)


  5. I feel like I'm losing friends when I finish the books! :(

    Glad to know I'm not the only one!

  6. read Divergent next! it will help with the separation anxiety, i promise!

  7. O i know its all you think about until its done!!! i'm like that!! I was never a reader and after twilight I found a love for reading!!

  8. I don't remember if I cried while reading Hunger Games but I DEFINITELY yelled at the book. More than once. In front of my in laws. NOT my proudest moment :)
    I'm serious... READ City of Bones. It will bring meaning back to your life :)

  9. Ahh! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who gets emotionally attached to main characters!!! I seriously have a problem with that!

  10. Hahah!!! This is hilarious because lately books have been doing the same thing to me and I thought I was turning into a huge nerd so I emailed a friend of mine who is a pro writer and asked her if she normally feels like she has gone trough a break up with a book when it's over! Apparently it's completely normal!! I think it's reading in its fullest! :)

  11. so true, I also experienced these symptoms..what to do..
    Bring on the next movie!

  12. This cracks me up! I read the Harry Potter books, didn't read Twilight- but I am so wrapped up in the Hunger Games. Dare I say I wish sometimes I could just jump into the book and become Katniss? For.Real- I just said it!
