At the end of a particularly engaging book (or series of books) I always flail around for a little while. I feel a bit strange and disconnected. This is where I am right now. It's a strange, fish-out-of-water sort of feeling. Often, I linger over the last few pages of a book if I know that it's the very end. I don't want to leave whatever fictional vacation spot that I've been inhabiting, so I just...don't. I don't finish, I leave the end of the book for months at a time sometimes. I didn't do that this time.

So anyway, no more Newsflesh right now. A piece of me is still lingering in the post-Rising world, as horrifying as it was there.

Off to see Rock of Ages, ta!

Eeeee! Sounds like it was a winner for you, yay!

Have you tackled the COUNTDOWN novella yet? It's a nice little prequel. :)

Can I just say that it makes me so happy that you are still around the LJ, Devilwrites? ;)

Indeed, I am! I'm actually far more active over at my book blog, [livejournal.com profile] calico_reaction. :)

I totally do this!

Sometimes I even have a mourning period wherein I wonder what the characters might be doing *now* or where I'm just missing them. I really kind of like it when that happens even though it feels like I'm missing a limb. It means I totally loved/lived that book!

By the way - what book left you that way? I'd like to add it to my reading list!

It was the final book in Mira Grant's Newsflesh trilogy! The entire thing is amazingly addictive. Book 1 is Feed. They're a lovely hybrid of horror, political thriller and science fiction. There's a healthy dose of snark and sarcasm hidden amongst the zombies as well. If you like urban fantasy without a lot of romance, check out her books written under her own name, Seanan McGuire.
