everyone was talking about them.
everyone was loving them.
everyone was reading them.
everyone but me and that's precisely why I didn't want to start.
much like the Harry Potter series, I held off reading them because.... well, because everyone else was reading them.
the pressure got to be too much for me. I had Twilight lovers coming from all sides. (love ya Becky and Karli) how long can a girl hold her ground with that kind of pressure? and I buckled.
it was pretty pathetic. I had the book in hand while doing the laundry. my eyes scanned the pages as I cleaned our kitchen. the book was set open on the counter while I did the dishes and several glances were shot in that direction. while laying in the sunshine (after I was finished studying) I was also reading that dang book! and even when I would venture into the bathroom...... JUST KIDDING! (kinda)
Jason says I read the first book in three days. but that's just not true.... I had a psychology test and took a good day or two break for that of course, then there was church and school and Mini Bazaar. in fact I just finished it two days ago and I started the second yesterday.
my point to this whole story is that, yet again, I gave into the crowd (I have proven to be quite a little follower) and, yet again, I am happy I did.
the story behind the story--about how the book came about was so interesting and very inspiring! go to the official website to check it out and prepare to be inspired yourself.
