I do not know how I’ve been doing it (yes, I do…I stay up until 2 a.m. every single night!), but I have been on a roll with my reading. There are months that pass where I don’t manage more than a few issues of People Magazine, but then all of a sudden I get on a reading kick, and I can’t stop turning pages.
You are going to laugh, but even though I own a Nook, I prefer to read my books via Kindle on my tiny iPhone. My Nook is one of the originals, so it isn’t back-lit, which means reading at night or in the sun is difficult. Plus, if you factor in the 5,000 other bits of kid-generated minutia that fills my already 40 lb. purse, the last thing I want to do is lug around my Nook. So, until I win the lottery or find a kind benefactor interested in supporting the literacy efforts of a 40-something housewife by gifting her a Kindle Fire, iPhone it is.
Anyhoo, I just finished this book. Let me clarify - I tore through this book! Creepy, creative, suspenseful, and with an unsettling ending. Loved it! So much so that I promptly downloaded her earlier work, “Dark Places,” and read that in two days.
I’ve moved on to “The Fault in Our Stars,” which has been a literary darling for months and is apparently going to be made into a movie. (more…)
