8 Ways to Deal with the End of a Series

It's happened to all of us, we are reading a series. It can take years for this series to be completed and we've invested so much our of life into this amazing series. When it finally ends... it's a like a piece of your heart is ripped out and now it's hard to even go on. How will we live when we have no more books in that series to look forward to each yeah? 

Here are some tips to help you get past that mourning period, after crying your eyes out and eating all the ice cream you can, of course.

I've actually done some of these things before, so while at times in my wording it may seem like a joke, it doesn't have to be. If one of these things help when you finish a great series that's awesome. If not, hope you got a laugh.

1) Reread the whole series
Now this one sounds perfectly reasonable right? Once you finish, you just grab book one again and there you go! In a way, you'll never really leave the world. 

2) Fanart
If you are great at drawing or creating things on a computer, this can help ease the pain, creating wonderful art to look at and share with everyone else mourning the ending to the series. 

3) Join a Facebook group
You're not the only one that is sad to see the series end so find a group and then talk/fangirl/mourn with other lover's of that series. It really will help knowing you're not alone and having someone to share the pain with. 

4) FanFiction
Yep. Why let the series end when you can keep it going yourself!? Besides, there are some great fanfiction writers out there, I'm told. 

5) Move onto another series by the same author
Want something kind of like what you just finished? Then bam! Hopefully the author has written other books that you can dive into and at least still have the same feel as the last series.

6) Leave reading alone for a few days and watch some Netflix instead
I've done this. After I finished my favorite series, I didn't want to read anything else. I felt nothing could compare so why bother? (I was young and overly dramatic) It really did help though and within the week I'd started another series. 

7) Blog/Vlog about the series
Another thing that can help is just to just get all your feelings about the book into a video or on a blog post. Plus, another people can comment and you can fangirl/fanboy together. 

8) Quit reading altogether 
I mean nothing will ever top the last series right? So just give up reading and find another hobby/passion. Just kidding, this one is never the answer. Also this was meant as a complete joke but the others might actually help. 

So let me know if any of these have helped you when a great series has ended or what other ways that you have coped.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
