I just finished reading an amazing book that left me feeling depressed. Not because it was a sad book, but because it was so good. I always feel kind of drained and sad after finishing a particularly good novel. This one is the third in a series of four. Now, I have to wait for the fourth. It probably won't be released until May 2012. AAGHH!
This book was Illusions by Aprilynne Pike.
Now, this isn't really a spoiler, but if you're worried, don't look at the red text.
It ends with a cliff-hanger.
Yeah. And, I may have been slightly hyperventilating near the end of this book. So, there you go. If you didn't want to read it before, I'm sure you want to read it now. But you gotta start with Wings and then proceed to Spells.
I got Wings from a friend for my birthday right after it came out. I am so grateful for that gift. She knew I like books and she read it and liked it. In all honesty I was skeptical. I mean, faeries? That wasn't something I had really read about before then. Now, I'm kind of obesessed with faerie stories. Plus, I had never heard of Wings or Aprilynne Pike. I read it in one day and was hooked.
Anyway, books in general. A really good book leaves me feeling weird inside. This book did that for me. I feel sad and happy and stressed and annoyed all at the same time. Sad it's over, happy it was AMAZING, stressed because it was stressful, and annoyed because I have another year before the ending.
Great songs make me feel drained as well.
