Ain't nuttin' like a good book! What are some books that you didn't want to put down?
Make-up is off, pony tail is up, candles lit, pillows plumped, kids in bed, tea is made. I'm ready to dive into a book that I picked up at the library today.
I'm rather excited because I love to read, but I've been in a reading rutt. For the last year my goal was to read at least 4 books a month. Many months I exceeded that goal. I've given up t.v. time so I can read and write.
The problem is, I'm a little burnt out now. I love to read, but for about 2 months I've picked books up at the library. Good books, but I just couldn't get into them. I'd read a couple of chapters, and then return them, unfinished, until I could find a book that would draw me in and capture me. I'm in a mood for that type of book. a "Capture" book
I love a book that can take me away to a different time, a different place. A book that can make me forget the here and now and take me on an unforgettable journey. A book that I get excited to read and don't want to put down. It's been a long time since I've been able to find a book like that. Well, a long time for me. like 2 months.
Dear friends, I am happy to say that I've finally found a book to break me out of my rutt. It's "The Seer of Shadows" by Avi. I'm sure I'll write a review when Im done.
As for now, I don't want to type anymore. I want to get back to my book!!!!!!!!!
Oh, and I was wondering, what are some books that have captured you? Books that you haven't wanted to put down? After all, I'll need some suggestions for when I finish this book (which may be very soon. Like tomorrow.) What are some of your "Capture" books?
