I recently re-read Stephanie Meyer's Twilight with Brayden for her second 9-weeks Science Fiction book report. You might remember. I certainly complained about the diorama loud enough.
On Friday, I re-read the second book of the series, New Moon.
Saturday, I began and finished Eclipse.
Today, I began and finished Breaking Dawn.
Let's review, shall we?
I have not made breakfast or lunch for the past three days, despite the fact my entire family is home on Christmas break.
I have not put away a single Christmas decoration.
I *have* made dinner all three nights, but haven't bothered to set the table and eat as a family because I have eaten off a plate on my lap, sitting on the sofa, reading.
I have a headache.
I have what is possibly the world's worst crick in my neck from looking down at my book(s) for three solid days.
I might very well be in love with Edward.
Or perhaps Jacob.
But I still don't feel as strongly for either of them as I feel for Jamie in The Outlander series.
Actually, only young Jamie. Jamie when he gets older, in the later books, doesn't do it as much for me.
I have enjoyed the past three days immensely.
Brayden, at least for now, will not be allowed past New Moon.
PS. To the person who noticed and commented that my "Currently Reading" section is usually straight from the Young Adult section at the library .... yeah .... I confess. I started reading the same books Brayden and Kellen were reading to help them with their book club, and then as their reading levels got higher I thought it might be the responsible thing to do. Then, I have to admit, I found out that I really enjoy young adult, and get a kick out of Brayden making suggestions to me based on what she is reading. How ironic that she just returned to me today one of the books I bought her for Christmas, Eleven by Lauren Myracle, and said, "Mom, I think you should read this first. It's really inappropriate." Hmmmm. I'll start it as soon as I finish the next book she recommended to me, Schooled by Gordon Korman. And lest any of you cluck your tongues at the voluntary "dumbing down" I'm doing by reading young adult books, let me point out that Twilight is technically on a 5th grade reading level. While I don't necessarily agree with that for content sake, who am I to argue with the classification of Scholastic Books? So head to the library and grab yourself some young adult books. You might just be pleasantly surprised.
