So, yeah, I forgot it was Thursday. Sorry! However, I have a really good excuse for my lack of calendar awareness. Sunday morning, thanks to a raving recommendation from Rhonda Nelson at the Soapbox Queens, I started reading Twilight. And finished it Monday afternoon and started New Moon. And finished it Tuesday night. And started Eclipse yesterday morning (and should finish it sometime today).
Now, I know what you're thinking - she stayed up all night reading and that's why she forgot to prepare a blog. Surprisingly enough, that isn't the case. I actually put the book down at 10:30 for something and knew if I picked it back up again I wouldn't get any sleep. So my lack of a timely blog isn't from sleep deprivation...it's from preoccupation. I have been eating, sleeping, working, dreaming this series since I started reading it Sunday morning. I am obsessed with Bella, Edward, Jacob and the rest of the Cullen family and I won't be able to do or think about anything else until I've finished them all.
This could be a problem. I'm not on deadline right now so I have a little breathing room but I'm trying to get ahead on everything and take advantage of NaNoWriMo next month. Sunday (because I already had commitments for Saturday) I'll be starting a month focusing on writing the rough draft for my next book... However, if I haven't finished reading these books I don't know how much I'll get done.
Has anything, a book, a project, a heavy life decision, taken over your life like these books have hijacked mine?
P.S. In case you haven't figured it out, I highly recommend this series, especially with the first movie coming out in several weeks. But don't start them unless you have plenty of time to read them all.
