Yesterday, I saw this.
There were many emotions to feel. From being Angry to being disappointed, only one feeling stood out for me. Shocked, that is what I felt.
Although I can see over twitter and Facebook how understanding and loving the Frans are, I am going to be using the pronoun I rather than we . If you still feel like you wanted to be involved in this, read I out loud. Read it as if you are the one who wrote this.
Anomaly is a book that I will always remember because I read it right after my fifth semester's midterms. Basically, Anomaly was my get away vacation after such a stressful week, and the upcoming long week of lectures, tutorials,and labs.
I was shocked because, the story is amazing! I loved Josie and Reid ; I loved the plot, and the overall critical reception the book had was( IS ) positive ! The pictures below will explain what I mean in more details.
I wish I could mention all of the book bloggers too, but that would take forever.
After being shocked for a while, I realized something. The road to publication is very complicated. There are a lot of things that can go wrong from writing a sequel, to having it on shelves . Whatever complications happened, it is still okay.
It is okay to be sad as a reader. It is okay to be upset as a writer. It is okay to be feeling down as a person who works in the Publishing House. Problems pop out and block a certain road because there is a more interesting route to follow. I am happy that I got to read Anomaly, even if it is now a stand alone . I am even happier because this isn't Goodbye ; it is only a see you later. I don't why there isn't going to be a second book, but I know that Tonya will be publishing more Kick Ass novels in the future.
