So, this will probably be a long post, because I have not posted anything real in a while. I have been on a big reading kick these past few weeks, and I haven't been able to tear myself away from books long enough to do anything else. It started on Spring Break last week, I was exceptionally bored and I saw Twilight at Walmart. I picked it up. I had put off reading it, mostly because I hate mainstream, and I was tired of hearing about it at work.
It was shocking, lol. I loved it. I read the first one in one day, and then I called my sister in law and asked to borrow the others. Between Sunday and Tuesday during Spring Break I read all four books, and then I read them again. It really was an obsession and Trey was kind enough to put up with me during it. I also watched the movie, but honestly I didn't enjoy it that much. There was too much missing from the books, but it did grow on me, and I do like it now.
So that is where my life has been for the last couple of weeks. Obsessed with Twilight. I finally gave the books back to my sister in law, because it was quite literally ruining my life. I could accomplish nothing.
A couple days ago I started reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I have had the book for many years, but every time I started it, I put it back down. I really just couldn't get into it. Possibly because it was such a different time, and some of the women in that book were just so idiotic, I literally wanted to punch them in the face. So I forced myself to read it. I really enjoyed it. I started getting into it about halfway through the book, and I was pleasantly surprised. It also had a great ending. Some of the parts were long and annoying, but I think that is because historical books can be hard to relate to.
So if ya'll have any other reading suggestions let me know!
