Finishing an entire book series or trilogy is not something I have accomplished often (according to Goodreads I have only completed five series/trilogies). For me to want to read a whole series I need to be highly invested in the book and its characters. Or sometimes if there is too long of a gap in between when I read the first book and the second book...or if the other books just aren't out yet, I'll obviously forget details and need to reread book one but there are SO MANY BOOKS I want to read that I never get around to doing a reread. This is one problem.
My other issue is that when I finish a series I feel...lost. The world that I've grown to love and felt like I've been a part of is over. There is no more. That makes picking up a new book to read hard! I still feel stuck in the mindset of the characters that I just left behind.
This leads to my question:
WHAT DO I READ AFTER HARRY POTTER?
I've picked up books from the library, browsed for books online to buy...but nothing sounds interesting or like it'll hold my attention anymore. I think I'm suffering from a Harry Potter hangover. Help me find a cure!
