SHINE Pre-Release Party Day 2: SHIFT

26 DAYS!!

Remember that there may be spoilers if you haven't read the books.

It's Wednesday which means it's time for a SHIFT question!! Monday we talked about seeing ghosts. Today let's talk about...reading a lost one's journal.





Aura is given Logan's journal in SHIFT. If you were given your boyfriend's journal after he'd died would you read it?

  1. Oh God yes, I'd read. I'm sure I'd cry just having it my hands before I even cracked it open. I'd go hide in a corner, my stomach fisted in a knot, frightened at what words would be in there, feeling guilty about invading his privacy/secrets- but my curiosity would over ride that guilt. With that said, I would never share it with anyone else. Although I may need a shoulder to cry on, I would never let that journal leave my possession. (Unless it was hateful- I'd burn the MFer!)

    1. Hah! I don't think I could say it any better than you did! :)

  2. I feel like the "right" answer is no, but I don't think I can go with the right answer on this one, lol. I'm pretty sure I'd read it and then feel really guilty for the rest of my life.

    Wait. Maybe I wouldn't. What if he had some secret that tainted my opinion of him and I couldn't talk to him about it? That would shatter me.

    I know! I'd keep the journal and not read it until I was older and had "moved on" with my life. I think. Yes, that's what I'd do. Maybe.

    GAH! Poor Aura!

    1. This is exactly how I'd feel - torn between wanting that connection & being afraid of what I'd find. That being said, I'd probably read it. I am weak after all. LOL

    2. You ladies said it best. I'd be G-U-I-L-T ridden if I did. I would also be afraid of what I'd learn. At the same time, I think I would be a Hot-mess if he gushed about me.

      I would hope that I would have the courage to one day read it and be okay with everything in it.

  3. i'd love to say i wouldn't read it, but i know the curiosity would get the best of me and i'd just have to know what he had written. i'm sure i would end up feeling horrible for even invading his privacy, but i'm sure i'd still keep reading and probably fall apart as i'm reading it.

  4. How could I not?! Especially if my dead boyfriend was Logan. I would prepare myself for some heavy, gut-wrenching tears... but then I'd also prepare myself for having a piece of him still with me.

  5. I would read it in a heartbeat! It would feel like being with him one more time.
    But then be totally devastated and crushed if he ever said anything bad about me or lusted after another lol
    I would have a box of kleenex and lots of chocolate on standby.

  6. I'm not sure I could resist reading it, even if I tried. To have that final moment with him, and read his (more than likely) innermost feelings. Yep, I'd want that.

  7. I would definitely read it, but only after having waited a while. Maybe a couple of years after he had passed away. I would love to feel connected to him again, even if he had written some things I wouldn't like.

  8. Yes, I definitely would. The curiosity of what he said would KILL me until I did. Plus it would be thoughts of his beyond what I'd already gotten in his life...so it would kinda be like he was still with me while I read it.

  9. Hmm, hard to say. Knowing me, I would probably start out adamant against reading it, then I would obssess over it until I finally picked it up, then I would feel bad for reading it, but I wouldn't be able to put it down. Of course, who knows, maybe I would be too busy with O'Hearn's work to even think about it. :p
