“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
During my spring break, I spent a lot of time writing. I forgot all about my responsibilities and work. I just dedicated all of my spare time to my writing. It felt wonderful to be able to do that. I haven't done that in years, and I truly missed it.
I started working at an Elementary school around four weeks ago, and it is exhausting as hell. I haven't had the time to do anything. So the fact that I got do something I love was wonderful.
I also got a chance to read! (The second thing I love!) I just finished reading Black Moon by Romina Rusell and Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. Last night I started reading Kings Cage by Victoria Aveyard, and so far I am having difficulties remembering some details and characters...let's see if by tonight I'm back on track.
Truth is, I just wish I could sit down and talk to each author and ask them all the questions I have about their books, and today's quote by J. D. Salinger and it speaks volumes on how a relationship between an author and a reader truly is. No matter what book you finish reading, you always have questions on what happened after that happily ever after--or not so happily ever after. And your biggest desire is to ask the author all of the questions your hearts desires, but sometimes that's impossible. Unless you're lucky and get replied by the author through social media. (Which is probably the easiest way of contacting them.)
Which thankfully happened to me around a month ago with Romina Russell. I almost fainted when I saw my notification that she replied and retweeted a quote I wrote of her book Wandering Star. I fangirled like I have never fangirled before.
It was awesome.
