I can't put it down!
I had a plan going into Tuesday. As everyone knows I've been on edge waiting for Acheron. My day went just as planned. Woke up, threw dinner in the crock pot so dinner would cook itself, dressed the kiddos, and headed to Wal Mart for my book. Once I picked it up we went straight to the park so my kiddos could have some fresh air. Can anyone guess what I did??? Read! Besides taking breaks to play with my kids, do snacks, lunch, read a few books to my four year old (she's so cute because she loves books to. She'll copy me and lay on the opposite couch with her book and tell stories to herself. LOVE it) and other mommy stuff all I did was read! No laundry, no vacuuming, no writing. My day was full of Acheron and my kids. The amazing this is even though I've spent hours reading and I'm halfway done I still have to force myself to put it down. My eyes are tired but I don't care. I'm enthralled with Ash and his story. Its sad, but its so important to see where he comes from.
Anyway, the point of my blog today, even though I'm having a heck of a time getting to it, isn't so much Ash but those books that you CAN'T put down. You know what I mean, those books that you get and read in one sitting, unable to pry the thing from your hands. Love the feeling of a book connecting with me so much.
So, what books have you read recently that you just couldn't put down?
