I’m scared of sharing this since you guys will all think that I’m a yellow-bellied, lily-livered coward, but, er, I’ve sort of uhhh, *ahem* well, you know... *cough* IhaventfinishedreadingTheOtherBoleynGirl. *cough* There I said it!
But, really, who can blame me? I’m terrified!!! I already know horrible things will happen to Anne and George and I honestly like them both (even if Anne is such a cruel twisted bitch). I got so emotionally invested in these characters I don’t want to see them suffer horrible deaths. So as long as I don’t carry on reading, they’re all safe in my mind. Does that make any sense?
Oh god, I know I’m pathetic. The worst thing is, this isn’t even the first time this happens! I hate sad books. Even in romance novels, I’ll usually skip the conflict parts when I reread (hard to do the first time since then you won’t know what the hell is going on) and if a book is truly troubling me, I’ll just go right to the last couple of pages and read the end.
Does this happen to anyone else, or am I a freak of nature?***
