Books and Hormones

I have been trying to read Nick Hornby’s “The Long Way Down” for the past 2 months. But, until now, I have yet to reach a quarter of the book.

It’s not that Hornby’s not a good writer nor is the book bad.  In fact, it’s actually pretty good.  It’s just that my hormones get in the way.

Lately, I just find myself craving for those romantic novels , every second of the day.  Like every fiber in my being just want to soak up every word written in those books.  It has gotten so bad that I actually have a mini library of chick lits in my phone that I run to whenever I want to hide from my reality.

It used to just be a phase in my life and after reading a few books, I’d be ok.  And I can spend a blessed few months reading more meaningful ones.  But now, it seems like no other book can satisfy my cravings but those damn chick lits.

I’m like a junkie who has gotten more and more addicted to gorgeous men, hard bodies, and hot kisses.  And I find myself wondering whether I’d ever get to meet my own prince with a hard body and who gives hot kisses.

Damn those chick lits and chick lit authors.  You no longer just scratch an itch.  You cause them. 😦
