Making Up For Monday: Emotional Roller Coasters
It's time for Making Up For Monday! This is a weekly meme hosted by me that asks some fun literary questions. Feel free to play along!
This week's question: Have you ever read a book so emotionally draining you couldn’t complete it or had to set aside?
To be honest, I have never stopped reading a book because it was emotionally draining, or even stopped reading it. I have, however, powered through a few with heavy subject matters, and then read something light and silly after to clear my head.
The most recent example of this would be Gone Girl. That is a heavy book filled with evil (although incredibly well written and a captivating story) and when I was done I was ready for something lighter.
I followed it up with Sophie Kinsella's Can You Keep A Secret? I really needed to cleanse my palate.
Does anyone else do this with heavy or draining books? How do you deal with them?
