Have you felt what I feel?
I'm not a picky reader. It doesn't bother me if it's not a complex book. I've read easy (though surprisingly deep) books like The Hunger Games, and then books that are almost as if they're riddles like The Scarlet Letter.
What I'm looking for is the connection. When you're not only wrapped up in the story, but you feel as if you're the same as the characters. Laughing when they laugh, and crying when they cry.
I just finished the 8th and last book in the Chop-Chop series. Easy reading.. but L.N. Cronk connects with her readers in a way I've never experienced before. Don't get me wrong.. I've felt the emotions going with a book before.. but not to the level that I did with these books. It has been true bliss.
So here I go, moving on to something else.. knowing in my heart that I'll never have that deep of a connection again. I will always, always love to read. Not only for the thrill.. the escape of it, but because the characters in the books somehow become part of me.
Do any of you have a favorite book/ book series?
