Recently I've realised how into a book, film or TV series I really get. After watching Divergent on DVD last year I was immediately hooked. In a short space of time I had watched it quite a few times. Then I or it might have been my mum, bought the books. I spent every spare second I had reading the books, pretty much all of Osian's nap time was spent reading, and as soon as he went to bed I found myself reaching straight for the book. Then when I finished I felt lost, like I'd actually lost something from my life, all because there was no more story to be read. This has also happened with several other books.
When I was studying for my exams in my first year of uni, I somehow thought it was a good idea to buy the box set of Game of Thrones to see if I like it, BAD MISTAKE. As soon as I watched the first episode, I had to watch the next, then this carried on for the rest of the day. I had finished all ten episodes by the end of the next day. That day whilst out shopping I bought the next series, because I just had to watch it asap. Which even cost me more, as it was a few pounds dearer than it was on Amazon, and the usual me always goes for the cheaper option even if it means waiting, but this time I couldn't wait.
The reason I've written this, is to ask, is anyone else like this? Am I normal? Is this normal? I don't feel like anyone else around be gets so obsessed with fictional things.
