I must admit, it took me a little to get into it...but a lot of that had to do with the fact that I could never sit down to read more than a few paragraphs at a time without being interrupted. BUT, once I got into it, I could not put it down! Then once I finished it, I could not wait to get my hands on the second book in the series, New Moon.
In an effort to save some money, I spent some time checking online, but the thought of waiting for it to be shipped was driving me crazy. I needed it NOW. So, when Brad called me from Costco on Tuesday evening to ask if we needed anything, I asked him to look for it. Well, they didn't have it, but they did have the third book, Eclipse, (for something like $10.50 and it is $18.99 elsewhere) so he asked if I wanted it. OF COURSE! But what was I going to do? I couldn't read that yet...I still desperately wanted to get my hands on #2.
So, later we went to Target...and I thought that maybe, just maybe I'd get lucky and they'd have it there. (Target doesn't really have the best selection of books...so I didn't have my hopes up TOO high.) Well, lo and behold, they had ONE copy. (on sale for like $16 or something) I snatched it up and was so excited to continue reading when we got home.
Well of course I'm finished with that, and already half way done with #3...mainly because it's easy "young adult" fiction, but also because I LOVE the story! It's great fun.
It has been a long time since I've been this "obsessed" (as Brad likes to call it) with a book/series. I'm also grateful for the timing...because I know with baby #3 just around the corner, this just wouldn't be possible.
What books have sucked you in? I'd love to know!
