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.
