Things that stick with you...

Do you ever have a book that stays with you? How about a movie? Those characters become part of your life and you can't let go. It seems to happen to me a lot more often than it used to. Maybe it's because I read a lot more now than I did when I was younger. I recently read a book by Maya Banks (Amber Eyes) and it stuck with me for days. I don't know if it was the female lead, or the men in the story, or the subject matter that touched me, but it just would not let go. Besides crying through the book (and making my husband look at me funny), I just couldn't shake it off.

Certain movies do that to me as well. Whether it's a fun movie or one that scares the bejeebers out of me, they seem to have something that sticks in my brain. I would end up dreaming about it and usually wake up in a cold sweat from the scary ones, or find myself daydreaming at work about a scene or event, and maybe pretending I was the heroine in that movie or book.

Has that ever happened to you? Or am I just weird? OK don't answer the last part... :D

You're just weird. heehee

Not so much with movies, but I have books that will stick with me. Our friend Vivan Arend has one she is writing that she let me take a look at and I had to write back to tell her I couldn't stop thinking about it! lol Now I get to help her with it. heehee She isn't the first author and won't be the last that capture me like that. :)

Yes, there are books that have been unforgettable to me. One series of novels I read by one of my favorite writers, Anne McAffrey, was the Dragonriders of Pern series. By the time I finished it, I was actually brokenhearted the series was complete.
