I've been away....

just for a short while. I was introduced to the book series "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer. I started reading them last Tuesday and just finished book 3 today. Considering I am working and running the kids around I thought I read them pretty quickly. I have one more book to get and I am kicking myself for not buying it the other day when I bought 2 and 3. It will drive me nuts until I can get to the store tomorrow to get it.

I have never been so in love with a series next to Harry Potter. It's a vampire/werewolf type book but the love that Edward (the Vampire) has for Bella (the human) and visa versa.....it is just amazing. I would fall asleep wishing that I had that kind of love. Don't get me wrong...I know my husband loves me more than anything but the way Edward would stroke Bella's face....or just lay there with him in her harms.....it was mesmerizing. And something I truly longed for. I guess everyone does. Maybe that is why it is so appealing. I just couldn't put the book down...I kept wanting to read more and more about their love....the surprises...the dangers...what he would do for her. Just simply amazing writing. It is a little different than my Stephen King normal but there is something to say about a good writer. They will sweep you in...in just a few chapters...and your hooked.

I STRONGLY recommend these 4 books. I have never sat down and just re-read a book but I do think I will have to re-read these simply for the Edward/Bella love fix.

I did get a few pages done this morning for Serendipitykits.com....I will post them tomorrow. And I did get my bathroom repainted. So really 5 days of reading, painting and a little scrapping. I think I did well....lol. Oh and I did attend the yearly arts and crafts festival only to cry for a good while because it was the last time my daughter would perform in the band at the festival. Man this year is going to be hard. To many "last times".

Will have to borrow these books from local friends. I know several who have them and say they loved them. Always great to hear from others before I venture into a new series.
