OSC books are like heavy drugs to my psyche.

I need to take a break from reading Orson Scott Card. I think I cried during the last two chapters of Shadow of the Giant and for about fifteen minutes after I turned off the light and tried to go to sleep. I finally gave up, as you can see.

I've been wanting to reread the Song of Ice and Fire books, but those are even more depressing and, besides, I promised myself I would wait until there was an actual release date for the next one.

I think Northanger Abbey will be next. I could do with some droll humor right about now.

Even though they're good, I kind of wish I had never started on the Song of Fire and Ice books. They are a real downer, and I have a bad feeling about the fate of my favorite character.

I've never read anything by OSC. Right now I am reading the Codex Alera books by Jim Butcher. They're great. :)
For some reason I don't get THAT depressed by ASoIF... at least after I got over that big main character death in the first book (I actually had to reread that passage a few times). Right now I'm just hoping Jon comes out of it okay... I like him. And not just because his last name is Snow ;)

OSC's writing is really amazing 99% of the time, it just always seems to take a lot out of me. Which I guess is more proof of it's awesomeness, but I can't read too much at once.
