Yes, I LOVE to read, and I will usually read anything and everything. I have been reading a lot of Young Adult literature, mainly because I like to be up to speed with what my students are reading and I want to be able to talk to them about it.
All year they have been RAVING about this book Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. I loved that they were so enthusiastic about a book, but I was out when I heard it was about vampires.
I am NOT NOT NOT into fantasy. AT ALL. I was scarred by A Swiftly Tilting Planet in 4th grade and I haven't been able to get into fantasy ever since.
However, the description of this book had me interested, so much so that I have had TWO dreams about it, so I finally told my students I would read it this summer.
I started it when I got home earlier and I have NOT BEEN ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN! Seriously, I am loving it.
MH came home, all excited with his first paycheck in 7 months, wanting to take me out to dinner, and I was BUMMED because I wanted to keep reading this book.
I was thinking about the dang book all during dinner AND frozen yogurt AND the trip to the store where I got myself a new bike. I just got home and I was about to pick it up and dive back in, but I wanted to post about it first. :-)
Anyway, if you are looking for a good book to read...pick it up! I'm still in the middle, but I predict I will be staying up ALL night finishing it.
