Guess what I got today...

25.7.09

Yep, I am joining the Twilight club! I loved the film and thought all the hype about the book series must be worth a look!

I still need to finish Marley & Me but I'm struggling. I'm crying at nearly every chapter and I know what's coming so I keep putting off the inevitable.

I've got the Shopaholic series to get through too!

So many books, so little time :)

What are you all reading at the moment?

aww thanks! I'm actually in the middle of opening a shop in Hull (not things I've made) but am planning on putting some of my own stuff in, and now you've made me even more confident, thanks!

I'm reading 'The Secret', I love books about life and behaviour and how people think!

Welcome welcome Victoria! I look forward to seeing if you get hooked too...I have a feeling you will!!!

I read the first book in a day and a half and then the rest of the books in a week. Crazy. My poor kids that week. LOL.


I'm reading Dead as a Doornail, one of the books from the True Blood/Sookie Stackhouse series.

Jheneal said...

I haven't read the Twilight series yet, but I do own all of the books lol. I have seen the movie, and I MUST see New Moon when it's released.

And thanks for the comment. I like Cetaphil so far, but my skin is sort of problematic too, so I'll have to see how it continues to work. =]

Rosa Adores... said...

Luc said...

arrrghh! no no. The film wasn't as good as everyone said. it was just average!! lol!

At the moment I am reading yours faithfully by Shelia O'Flanagan. It's really interesting about a man whos has gone into a coma and two women claiming to be his wife!

sophie-leigh said...

&& i prefer the twilight books to the film. they're so much better :) xxx

Lily G. said...

The Twilight books are addicting!! I'm reading the 3rd one right now. I'm also reading Time Traveler's Wife to get ready to see the movie coming out in a few weeks!

Girl With The Golden Touch said...

I daredn't read Marley & Me because of the crying thing...

I am reading a book called The Self Preservation Society atm...quite good so far!

Mama Mish Mash said...

I'm reading Dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris. I love the HBO series!!

I've read half of Twilight, eventually I'll read the rest...I'm a terrible book reader becuz I get bored and distracted even with books that I like--go figure???

une tasse said...

The Twilight books are so addictive. I got the whole series and read non stop for like 5 days. Couldn't put them down!!

Looks like there are a few Twilight lovers. Once you start - you can't stop (you have been warned). I am nearly at the end of Eclipse! :)

FabBlab said...

To you and all those who haven't read it : DO NOT.
It is an insult to your brain and you will most definitely lose 10 IQ points while reading about goddamn Edward Cullen. Jacob is pretty funny though.
I'm reading Possession by A.S. Byatt.
Oh and, White Stripes are awesome.
