Being Impatient With Books

So I’ve been getting really frustrated with myself lately when I read and that because I’ve been being impatient when I read. I need to know the next action sequence, the next romance scene, the ending to happen RIGHT NOW.

And it’s pissing me off.

I want to enjoy what I’m reading and soak in all the details, but for the past month I’ve just been wanting to get right to the end and move on with it. I need to know what happens right then and there.

I don’t really know how to stop it. I’ve been trying to read some books lately and I’ve just been impatient to know what happens in the next book, if there is one.

Maybe my problem is that I sometimes spoil myself to look ahead for those things I’m actually looking forward to, and therefore negating everything that happens in between those times.

But I can’t help it! And I’m annoying myself! Ahh!

Anybody else ever dealt with this sort of feeling? What did you do to remedy it? Did you ever fix it? Let me know!

  1. Hey Rayna. I experience this a bit and what I stopped reading new books (ones I have never read before) and I went to reread my favourite. I knew how the story would end, so I did not have to rush ahead. It forced me to take my time. Also, I read shorter novels, so I got to the end faster without feeling anxious. Hope you get over that feeling, I still feel a bit but not so much as before.


  2. Yes! I tend to skim read “boring” bits to get to the good bits but I always miss something by doing that. I er… Sometimes do it in Harry Potter? (Don’t shoot me) šŸ˜›
