One thing that's really been on my nerves during college is that I have very little time to invest in pleasure-reading. You know, reading just for fun. I used to do it all the time, but with all my homework, I've had to keep myself from picking up any new books so I would actually get things done (as if I get things done anyway, but that's beside the point). Well, the other day, I broke down. I picked up a new book.
See, what happened was Mom and Mia got a new trilogy at the store the other day, and it looked REALLY good, but I had promised myself, "No more books until you finish the semester. Come on, you're so close you can do it..." So for a couple days I just let the books sit there, taunting me.
Well, then I made the mistake of sitting near their resting place when I was bored and lacked the energy to do any homework. I glanced at the books, and my curiosity got the better of me. I picked the first one up, expecting it to be a bit of a disappointment, like many of the books I'd been reading lately.
Oh. My. Badness.
I couldn't put it down! It was so intense! The first six chapters (approximately ;)) were all cliff-hangers! I was sucked in like a bug (I don't know if that works, but whatever). In fact, I may or may not have stayed up 'til one in the morning finishing it last night (good thing I don't think Mom reads this blog. ;)). If anyone is interested, the trilogy is called Infernal Devices and the first book is Clockwork Angel. Brilliant book! I highly recommend it!
Fare thee well, friend!
