So, I finished Twilight last night


I started it on vacation 8/4. I picked it up, put it down. Read a chapter here and there. Just couldn't get into the book.

Until Saturday night. I was really stuffed up (I mean gassy. Come on after 2 veggie corn dogs and black bean soup you would be too.) and decided to sleep in the guest bedroom so I wouldn't keep the hubby up with my random bodily noises. (I even took a mocha monkey with me, in case it got lonely) I started reading a little after midnight, and then got to the beginning of the chapter when he takes her to the meadow. AND..........

Dear lord, I couldn't put it down from that point on. I made myself go to sleep so I would remember all that I read the night before. (I sometimes forget if I am up really late reading)

So, my Sunday looked like this: (part of it is lame, I know)

9:00 wake up
9:30 watch The Soup I missed from Friday night
10:00-11:20 Went to Target and Office Max to get all I need for the week
11:20-11:35 put items away and fold laundry
11:35-3:00 READ TWILIGHT I started on page 230 by the way
3:00-3:15 Eat lunch
3:15-6:00 READ TWILIGHT (with a 10 minute cat nap when my eyes got tired)
6:00-6:20 Made cornbread to go with dinner (with honey butter, yummo!) reading the whole time it was in the oven
6:20-6:50 Eat, Shower, Get cleaned up, etc.
6:50 - 8:00 READ TWILIGHT
8:00-9:00 Watch Iron Chef (sorry, it is one of my favorites) Drank 2 beers (maybe three)
9:00-9:45 FINISHED TWILIGHT WHILE DRINKING 2 MORE BEERS. Come on people, I read 269 pages yesterday. I have never read that many pages in a day before.

Overall book review.... I had a hard time getting into it, but once I did I was hooked. I did feel like I was reading some soft core porn for a while, but it wasn't too bad. I really got tired of the word incredulous after reading all day. (It was waaaaaaaay overused.) I now must know what is going to happen to Bella and Edward and all the othe unanswered questions.

Today, I started the second book. I am taking the night off from reading (yeah, right) and plan to spend a good chunk of my next few afternoons with my nose buried in a book.

It got so bad that last night my charming hubby kept referring to me as 'nerdlinger'. I don't mind, I earned it yesterday. Now, I hope to finish this one by the end of the week so I can start the third over the weekend. We'll see. I did loan my copy to my niece. I better check to see if she's done. (Kelly, if you are reading this get on the monkey and read. Just kidding.... or am I?)

On a side note, I really need to finish Jodie Picoult's Change of Heart. I am half way through it and just can't do it. Too many unbelievable things. Give me some encouragement. I really should finish it.

  1. I've read all 4 books and even though I find them fascinating and a good read, I'm not all obsessed like others. I find that there are better quality books out there that get me more jazzed up than these.

    However, I did enjoy them immensely and I will be first in line to see the movie.


Your input would be greatly appreciated!!!
