Sometimes an author has questions, and the best person to answer them is YOU. I am eager to hear your thoughts through the poll and comments below!
When it comes to books, are you a “glass is half-full” or “glass is half-empty” reader?
We each look at life and situations differently. Some of us with the positive “glass half-full” view, and others with the opposite, which got me thinking if we do the same things with the books we read.
The glass is half-full: You read a book, and it doesn’t turn out to be everything you’d hoped for. But that’s okay! Because you can still find some good things about it (like a character you liked, or aspects of the world-building). The story had potential, and for that reason you’re willing to give the sequel a try. Give the author a second chance! Things will be great next time!
The glass is half-empty: You read a book, and it doesn’t turn out to be everything you’d hoped for. What a disappointment, what was the author thinking? It doesn’t even matter that you liked one of the characters, because the story was so lacking. You most likely won’t read the sequel. There are other books waiting for you, so move on to the next thing.
You can add more to the descriptions if you like, but I think you get the basic idea. Feel free to discuss this more in the comments and share with friends! 🙂
