In Which I Say "Which" A Lot
So while I'm certainly not done talking about my food and weight concerns yet, it has helped to talk about it a bit.
But that's not what this post is about, actually. This post is about books.
Not about how very much I love them, because that would just be a post filled with the word very repeated a hundred thousand times, but about my most excellent book dilemma.
I just finished a great series I became rather obsessed with; the Tomorrow Series. If you want to know just how obsessed I became, let me tell you what I did when I found out that you couldn't get three of the seven books in North America.
I asked my friend's parents who were travelling to Australia if they'd mind going to a bookstore there to pick me up the other three!
Which they did.
Which meant I could read the series one book after another and then follow up with the spin off series.
Which I did.
So I finished up that series and went through another book (Mr.Popper's Penguins, which I read for C-Dawg because she looked at me really funny when I told her I'd never read it.) And now I'm in the middle of reading something else that I'm quite enjoying, but am also wishing I wasn't enjoying so that I could skip it and get to the main course.
Which I think..... is going to be Divergent.
Linda (Sundry) posted about Divergent and I always love her post-apocalyptic recommendations so I figured I'd pick it up.
Funny thing though. When I picked up the book, every single salesperson who saw me with it told me how awesome the book is.
"Better than Hunger Games!" one said, to which I raised a suspicious eyebrow.
So you'd think that'd be my next read, right?
Except that I just recently watched the entire delicious first series of Game of Thrones and ordered the book and it just arrived, so now I have these two big juicy thick books I'm waiting to read and I don't know where to start or how to wait!
My thinking is that since both of them are bigger books, but I'm imagining Divergent will be slightly less dense since it's aimed at a youth audience primarily, I'll start with it and, from what I've heard, I won't be able to put it down and so will get through it fairly quickly.
And then I can go to Game of Thrones.
Except, I'm wondering if it's maybe more of a fall/winter read.
Oh, how I love that books can cause me such delightful torment.
I love me some books.
Very very very very very very much.
