Revelations

I am about to reveal a couple of things that may or may not shock you, don't fret--I think we can all still be friends.

#1 I am not reading Twilight in the ravenous, flashlight under the covers way everyone else seemed to. In fact, I could stop now, in the middle of book 1 and not look back. (Gasp!) I know, I know, you "read the whole series in a week", "it was your favorite"...I wish I was like you. But sadly I just can't get into it. A couple potential culprits; is it the audio factor--would I be more intrigued if I were actually reading it myself and not being read to?; is it the hollywood factor--did my viewing of (what some die-hards would call a poor substitution) the movie leave me jaded and uninterested in the outcome? Regardless of the reason I am committed to finishing it. Perhaps for no other reason than this started as a joint audio book adventure with the bf and he has finished it. I can't be a bad book partner.

#2 I do not live for Summer. Do I like summer? sure. I <3 the Fourth, love having sunshine late into the evening, love lightning bugs. But I live in Florida--I don't have to cram all my clam bake, beach loving, sunshine fun into three short months. I have less of a sense of urgency. And truth be told, I am a Fall girl. I loveeeee Fall. Football season, that back to school feeling (first fall, not going back to school--let's not talk about it) --it's great. I light pumpkin candles and pretend there is a crisp-ness to the air (in actuality it is still hot and humid and I adopt a new weight loss plan involving sweating off the lbs at college football games and tailgates). But the fall feeling is there none the less. My 7 year jaunt into the Northeast fostered this love and I'm hoping the bf and I can save a little money to make a trip this year to NYC or Baltimore, or some equally lovely place where the leaves change color...


Cheers to Friday loves.

xoxo,
EHK

I can't wait for fall either! Summeris just a hot and sticky thing to get through before the leaves turn. If it wasn't for the 4th and festival season I don't think it would be worth it. I just keep telling myself football will be here soon! Have a great weekend!

I feel the SAME EXACT way about the Twilight books. I just finished #2 (which I read quite leisurely - not in the must stay up until 4am to finish way) and am refusing to buy #3 until it comes out on paperback.

LOL!

Have a good weekend!

I understand, I don't really get people who see the movie..and then actually like the book. The movies kind of ruin everything, am I secretly still excited to see the next installment..of course, but it embarrasses me to no end to admit I like the series when I watch the movie.

I liked twilight, but I wasn't obsessed. It took me about 2 weeks to read it, because I took my time.

I love summer, but I so know what you mean about "lighting the pumpkin candles." I adore fall as well.

Yea, I didn't really get into the Twilight craze either. Maybe if I were in high school or college - it might be entertaining, but I'm old-school vampires, like, "Interview with a..." I guess I pasted my "vampire prime" at the ripe ol' age of 15 (11 years ago).

I did happen to see the movie while on a flight back from Hawaii. I'm (secretly) a little excited to see the sequel! ;)

I'm the same way! Haven't even looked at a Twilight book...I just don't care. whoops. And I'm a FL girl too..although I like summer..its TOO hot! I'm the same way with fall..pumpkin candles are my fave! Plus I can go to the beach year round (well when I'm in S. Fl and not Collegetown) and when we go in the winter we don't have to wear socks when we play beach VB.

Fall is my favorite season by far. Vermont is gorgeous in October.
