Books and such

So I’ve been reading again.  Which is both good and bad.  Good mainly because I’ve always loved reading, something I did while growing up.  My Dad used to complain a lot when I was a teenager coz I just lock myself in my room and read the whole day.  He’d say that other kids my age then were helping in the household chores, while I just read the whole day. 

Which brings me to the bad side.  Coz when I read, the whole world literally stops for me.  When I love a book, I go on hours to devour it.  I do everything with my face buried in the book.  I found 2 books at the book sale and finished both in just a week, 3 days to be exact.  One book which I finished in 2 days was She’s come undone by Wally Lamb – a bit dated but it was still interesting.  I initially saw the book when I was in college from my cousin’s huge book collection.  I wanted to borrow it then, but was more hooked on John Grisham, and yeah, Judith McNaught 😛

And then last Wednesday, an officemate mentioned Twilight.  I’ve briefly seen something previously on the web about it but didn’t really spend time to look it up.  As I’ve already finished the 2 books I’ve bought, I borrowed Twilight.  And it was AWESOME!  I loved every page of it, I couldn’t put it down, read it in less than 24 hours! 😀  I’ve always been interested in vampire novels, was an Anne Rice fan back in the days.  So I thought it was going to be slow, but Twilight was pretty fast and amazing.  I can’t wait for the movie! 

Last Wednesday, hubs and I decided to catch a movie at a real movie house.  I wanted to watch Wanted but he is a Will Smith fan, so we ended up watching Hancock.  Bad choice.  It was too emo.  I would’ve enjoyed Wanted better – I craved the adneralin rush.  But all’s good, we’ll just catch Wanted this week.
