My Current Obsession

I like to read. I haven’t read a lot of my own kind of books since Sweet Girl was born almost 4 years ago. I would fit in a regular book now and then but nothing like I used to read before kids. I admit it I love a good book that I can become totally absorbed in. An easy read that gives me a moment to escape my daily duties and kids that has become my life these days.

I have been reading the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. A book I had been hearing about but never really wanted to read. Although as I read more reviews of the book, I thought what the hell I’ll read it. So I ordered the first book Twilight from Barnes and Noble. I didn’t expect to be taken with as much as I was. Holy smokes, I flew through the first book totally captivated and engrossed in the story. It is a young adult book and is therefore pretty easy to read. It is really nicely written, it has wonderful character development and it’s easy to “see” the main characters and feel their emotions and reactions. Again I was captivated and quickly moved on to the second book as soon as I was finished. To tell you how captivated I was, I made Leo stop at the Barnes & Noble in Flagstaff to pick it up so I didn’t to wait until I got home to keep reading even though I already HAD the second book at home waiting for me.

I have wanted to read these books every possible waking minute I can without neglecting the fact that I do have kids and my parents are still there. I am now on the last and final book. (I think I read book 3 in a day and a half). I will try to pace myself so that I can still visit with my parents the last week they are here. I am somewhat obsessed with reading them. If only I could be this obsessed with working out…

So if you like to read I would suggest this series to you, especially if you enjoy a good vampire romance!

I have heard great things about this series. Your blog has convinced me that I must take some time away from "How-to-raise-the-perfect-child" books. I need some good entertainment!
