I must say, there aren't very many books that can hold my attention for very long. I won't usually read very long before I get distracted by other goings on around me.
This book was different. I started it last Monday evening and I finished it early this morning (Monday August 18th)....about 1 a.m. or so.... That's fast for me.
I have never read an entire book in one day.
I don't think I ever will.
I'm really not a bookworm.
I'm more of a booksnacker.
I take a bite.
Put it down.
Graze a little more.
Put it down.
Forget that I'm reading it.
Then I have to start over because I can't just pick back up where I left off.
I usually never start over, though. I don't want to reread everything. So, most of the books I've "read" never get "read".
Twilight was different.
Maybe I'm different.
My kids are getting older. I'm able to steal a few moments here and there. I can actually go to the bathroom and leave my kids unattended for a few minutes.
I did read more before I had children.
I was able to.
No messes, unless I made them.
Maybe that's what I love about this book. It takes me back to that feeling of new love. Before it gets complicated with life.
Don't get me wrong, Bella and Edward have complicated down to a tee.
But it's different.
Different than my complicated.
I can escape into someone else's drama that is polar opposite of mine.
That's it. That's what I love about this book. Thank you Stephanie Meyer. Thank you for not once mentioning my complicated life in your story of true love. Thank you for straying as far away as possible from the life that is mine. That's what will keep me coming back for more.
