I'm hooked....

I'm a little under the weather today so I stayed home (I never stay home sick - not for me anyway! Usually my sick leaves goes to care for the kids!)

Anyway, I have been laying around all day, dozing in and out, in a drug induced haze.

But I did accomplish one thing.....

I started the "Twilight" series last night (someone let me borrow the first book).

I finished it today.

I typically DO NOT let myself read ANYTHING other than textbooks during the semester. I am the type of person who starts a book and can't put it down until it's done. I will sink into a different world and nothing interferes...which is why I don't read until the kids are in bed and why I definitely can't read during the semester.

Oh. My. God. I am so happy that I have found a "replacement" for my beloved Harry Potter books (can't even tell you how depressed I was when THAT series ended - ugh). These books are awesome. I am going to go out tomorrow and buy the next book....and maybe the third one....Ok, I'll probably buy all four ;)

What the hell. I'm a little ahead in my schoolwork, it looks to be a rainy weekend, I don't feel well and there's only four books out so far. I can knock those out this weekend - no problem!

And I once again have something to look forward to -

Book Number FIVE!

I am so hooked.....

Sorry, Charlie. No book five, unless something changes. . . book four was the end of the series, although it's open-ended enough that she could do more with the characters if she wanted to.

Now we can wait for the movie, which comes out 11-11-08. I'm not crazy about the actors they picked. The girl for Bella looks about right, but the vampire people just aren't "pretty" or "exotic" enough for what I have pictured in my mind when I read the books. Oh well, what are you gonna do?
