Me: Ooh. I should read this book series, it looks fun and I have a lot of time... I mean....cOrOnAvIrUs...
Me: Sweet this looks good. I mean. Who doesn't love a telepathic main character.
Book: Yep gotcha.
Me: *reads 500 pages in one night*
Yeah, that was pretty good. I NEED BOOK TWO NOW!!!!
Book 2: Hey yo. I'm here.
Me: *reads books 2 and 3 in the same day*
Oh-kaaayy... Slightly obsessed. Book 3?
Book 3: Chill girl.
Book 4: So maybe don't stay up till 2 AM tommorow...?
Book 5: Yeah not gonna happen. But would you mind not smashing the gnats that gather around your nightlight INTO MY PAGES!?!?!? I'm getting DiRtY.
Books 6: Girl... I appreciate the attention, but... You know what, let's not mention that homework.
Book 7: Uhhh... Best book right here. I mean, catastrophes, crises, and plenty of time with our favorite healer. Not to mention some major ship time.... So girl... Don't rush me. Take it sloooooowwwlllyyy.
Book 8: Yeah, you should have listened to 7. Now you're stuck with a Major cliffhanger... And in deep, deep, deep, post series depression... Tough luck. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Me: Ugghhhhhhhhhhh.... Unfinished series!?!?!?!? I hate this so much... Lemme check when the next book comes out....
hmmm... NOVEMBER 17TH????? NOOO... Well, it could actually be worse... Wait... Does that say book 8.5? Wait what? Okay so not a full book?
November 17th, 2020.
Me: Finalllyyyyy heree!!!!! Must fix the cliffhanger!! And it doesn't look that short.
Book 8.5: Gurl! Sup! I'm 700 pages! But only 200 are actually book! The rest is repeat of old stuff!!!!!
Me: Okay... But the not from the author says it's still good.
Book 8.5: SuRe.
Me: *finishes the book in a day*
Uh... Just so you know. I'm mad. at YOU BOOK 8.5... I'm not even gonna start talking to you SHANNON MESSENGER!!!! How dare you write 200 pages with such an evil cliffhanger and give me basically no information on all the things I wanted to know about!!!! YOU JUST MADE ME WAIT FOR SIX MONTHS FOR NOTHING!!! I mean, not really nothing it was still amazing but I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THIS TREASON YOU HAVE DONE TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shannon Messenger: Ummm.... Bye?
Me: Write quickly... OR ELSE!!!!
OKay... It's not actually that bad. I mean it is. Like, why spend a year writing a random book of "specials" when you could be finishing your series? But there were some great moments and some stuff a lot of people are going to like reading... So I would still recommend, but I kinda wish I could buy the novella separately.
I better head out or else Imma give some major spoilers and no one wants that XD
