I have been sick for 2 weeks with some kind of horrific bronchitis that I think is bordering on pneumonia. I just switched antibiotics at the doctor yesterday and now I'm an another one for 2 whole weeks. So...I'm exhausted and basically work and crawl into bed with books. I barely have the energy to fix my children meals and their dad is on a week long business trip in Newfoundland.
So since Sunday, when I picked up Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, I have become somewhat obsessed with this series. I read Twilight in a day and a half and I was like a drug addict - I had to read the rest of the story. Right. Now. So I forced myself to wait until Tuesday to go to Walmart of all places, and bought New Moon and Eclipse, books 2 and 3. I started New Moon last night and finished it earlier today. It was so good!! And now I can't wait to read what happens next in book 3.
So, tonight I finally found book 4, Breaking Dawn, at Target and picked it up. I am itching to get through Eclipse because I've read the spoilers online and know what's going to happen in Breaking Dawn and I can't wait!! I don't know what I'm going to do after I finish the last one. Hopefully, it will have some closure or I'm going to go nuts until November when the movie comes out.
I have never felt this way about a book or series before. I loved reading The Time Traveler's Wife, and I put it down frequently because I wanted to savor it and knew it would soon end, but this has really turned into a drug, I can't put the books down.
It's so embarassing. I think my obsession is because it is so easy to fall inside the story in just a matter of words. Don't you just love it when you fall into a story so quickly?? I don't know, I have never met anyone else who does that. Of course, I've never really met anyone who was as big of a bookworm as me either. My family looks at me like I have 3 heads when I ask them if they ever fall into a book or a movie and everything around them disappears. They have no idea what I'm talking about. Does anybody else do this or am I really that crazy?
