My question this week is inspired by my love of reading.
What are you currently reading? Any suggestions on new books are always welcome!
Last night I finally started to read Breaking Dawn. There, I admit it. . . I am a Twilight fan! I
If you have no clue what I am talking about, hide your head in shame (j/k). Seriously, Stephenie Meyer’s books Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and now Breaking Dawn are Young Adult best sellers that are flying off the shelves like crazy to adults and teens. Last summer when I was busy nursing my then infant son I wanted something else to read after finish up the last Harry Potter book. I kept reading about the Twilight books and people going crazy about Bella, Edward and Jacob. I cringed when I heard that the premise was a vampire story. Still, I gave it a shot and was instantly sucked into the story line. Meyer does an amazing job telling her story and making you believe in her characters. So thanks to Laura, I now have her copy of Breaking Dawn and am anxiously reading every second I can. After that I hope to listen to my first adult book on CD. I am waiting to "read" The Host by Meyer so I can multitask. I tried reading this and just could not stay with it thanks to the set up. I have heard once into the book it goes quickly.
In addition to this, NHL and I are in the middle of book #6 in the Magic Tree House books (Afternoon on the Amazon). If you have never read this series, I highly recommend them. Mary Pope Osborne does an amazing job mixing history, science, geography and other goodies into these beginner chapter book. They are also great to keep kids and adults interested in what happens to Jack and Annie. FYI – there are already 39 of these magical books.
Happy reading all!
