Me After All Those Dystopian Reads





Dystopian books can be so dark and depressing but I can appreciate the world building.  Plus I'm becoming accustomed to feeling scarred.

  1. That's a great quote! LOVE it!
    And it's true about dystopians... they mess me up that's why I don't read them often, I spend weeks afterward pondering "What if the world really went down the drain like that?"

    1. I know! They are like scary movies for me. I just can't turn away though.

  2. AS of late Dystopians and the GOT series seem to be the books that have the most effect on me. I'm left pondering them long after I've finished so I know the feeling.

    1. They have the effect. There are so many messages and thoughts about human nature that I just can't let go.

  3. Dystopians are always so creative! I feel a little bit unbalanced too after reading a good book, like I was just plunked back into reality after experiencing something so mind-blowing. Yeah, withdrawal, but chocolate helps! :)

  4. YES! Especially when the worlds are written so well that they feel real!

  6. LOL. I love this quote! I can't tell you the amount of times I've looked up and felt that way.

  7. Haha - Yup! So totally true. It's amazing, isn't it? You'd think our own lives would be enough, but no. We have to go and live all these other lives through books too, and isn't it great? I love it.

  9. I miss reading and having this feeling. It's funny how life can take a turn and you are busy being busy that you forget the simple stuff. LOL
