I have been wanting for a long time to have a library card. Is that silly? I guess it's from candace and kyrstin. The reading freaks are rubbing off on me :) Just teasing guys. Anyways... i finally went last night to the H'ville Library and got me a card. You can only check out one book the first time you go.. so I asked the lady if she had any recommendations. I told her I had just got done reading the twilight series and loved them and would like something similar. She told me about a few authors, the one she really recommended though wasn't there. It made me feel a bit better about being such a twilight fan though cause this woman was like 40 and was a much bigger fan :) Almost as bad as candace :)
Anyways, i checked out this one book by a lady named Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. She has a vampire series. The first book is only like 150 pages though. I read it today while taylor took a nap. I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. It's not that it's a bad book. It just isn't Twilight. Maybe the other one that was recommended will be better. But I don't think I'm going to finish this series, though I could probably finish it in a week. There just isn't the detail, the drama, the love story that Twilight has. Maybe my expectations were too high.
I remembered that Anne Rice writes Vampire books... not that I'm really looking specifically for VAMPIRE books... but thought maybe they could be a bit like twilight... I had my little brother check out one of her books for me. I haven't started on it, but I'm thinking it will be alot more ADULT... not like porno adult, but just not the good teen book Twilight was. But I'm going to give it a try. I know she has a huge fan base and has had a few books turned into movies (Interview with a vampire, Queen of the damned) so maybe they're good. I dunno. If it sucks... I'll take it back. But anywho.
I still have the jane Austen book (Persuasion) I bought a few weeks ago that I haven't really started... I read a few chapters, but stopped. I think with that one, I just need to start it and not stop til I'm finished. And I don't have the time for that right now so I don't want to really start it. I've also been trying to be the good little Latter-Day Saint I know I should be and have been carrying around the Ensign with me in my diaper bag, promising to read it... and I have read a few articles... but nothing like what I want to do. And I wish I could get into my scriptures like I can a book. I've thought about getting them on CD so I can listen to them in the car, but I know I would just tune them out... so I haven't done that. Hmm... The road to hell is paved in good intentions.
Anyways. I'm excited about my library card. They have a Story time twice a week (Tues & Wed @ 10:30) and they do the same story both days, so if I miss one day I can make it the next. I'm excited about this and hope it's as good as the one Krystin goes to. I hear Isaac likes it alot and hope taylor gets into it too. If not, maybe I'll drive out to Mt. Juliet once in a while and go with Krystin to hers. that's a bit of a drive for 30 minutes of story time though... but me and krystin could hang out afterwards... Maybe Candace could make it out too... It's an excuse to get showered, dressed, and out of the house after all! :) What do you guys think? You up for it? Wait, I forgot Krystin moved... Maybe we can find another one somewhere closer to them we could all attend. I hope I keep up with this reading streak. It makes me feel more intelligent after watching sesame street and barney and little einstein and backyardigans all day. Wish me luck!
