Reading ALL THE THINGS (while eating unlimited M&Ms)


Read this, too. READ ALL THE THINGS.

People with addictive personalities are the easiest to buy presents for! Your family must love when they draw your name for Christmas.

So what was the book you just read? We are all the ears, too! (Please don't tell me that it was Game of Kings and Swords for Crows that Dance, with Dragons. Because I read that book, and... well, let's just say I didn't finish in three hours.)

I'm reading Divergent. Half-way through. Still withholding judgment on how much I like it. Sadly, I haven't read a book that has rendered me incapable of stopping to do even the simplest of tasks in far too long.

Ha!! That's what I always think! I'm easy to buy for, just get me books or chocolate unicorns! EASY!

I have to admit, the book was an old favorite of mine, THE DARKANGEL by Meredith Ann Pierce. I keep it off the bookshelf just to reread certain chapters from time to time...it's just so PRETTY.

And yeah, I love that rare moment of willful reading paralysis. They don't come around often (my last one was READY PLAYER ONE...sooooo good) but it makes all the other books you read just to GET to that one worth it. :D

I just finished I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. I haven't done homework for 2 days (ACK!!) My wordcount is down. My dishes are calling. It was worth it.

Kristan said...

LOL at the George RR Martin "book."

My recco: Daughter of Smoke and Bone, especially since you already like Laini Taylor. As soon as I finished, I wanted to start over.

Robin - I haven't read that one yet! The movie was...weird...but I heard the book was MUCH better. Added to the list. And you'll get your wordcount up, no prob. You are Robin, hear you type!

Kristan - YES! Thank you! I totally just ordered DAUGHTER...in hardcover at full price. That's how highly everyone's been recommending it. I can't wait!

THE LEFTOVERS, by Tom Perrotta(sp) was a winner for me.

Yvette said...

Jenny looks like Bride of Frankenstein. With glasses. Ha.

K. Marie Criddle said...

Candice - I've heard good things about that! Have to try it out. Thanks!

Yvette - I know...Jen's gonna KILLLL me when she sees that. :D

Okay, so I had to read Virginia Woolf's "A Room of One's Own" for class this week,and something she said made me thing of this post. She was encouraging women to write in every genre, on every subject. So Virginia says "WRITE ALL THE THINGS!!!!"

You know me - I could read the Harry Potter books over and over again. That's probably the only series I seriously think about reading again right that very second :). I'll let everyone in the world know if I find a book that does that to me again!

K. Marie Criddle said...

I am the worst at catching the last few comments...eep!

Robin - I could so see Virginia Woolf doing a hyperbole and a half pose, saying "WRITE ALL THE THINGS!" I need a .jpg of this. STAT.

Keri - I TOTALLY hear you on the Harry Potters. In fact, I feel a reading marathon creeping up on me again soon...maybe for Christmas? :D
