We all know I’m a book addict; this is nothing new. Given a choice between reading or breathing, I’d probably pick reading except… well… I’d die. Every once in awhile though, I get completely hooked on a book. I can’t put it down. I’m almost late for work because I want to keep reading. I stay up past my bedtime. If I could read while driving, I would (which is why I put whatever book I’m reading in the trunk; remove the temptation). There’s really no rhyme or reason to this. It can be a book I’ve read before or something new. I could read the book once, be hooked, but the next time not so much. Or vice versa.
Most recently, I got hooked on Twilight. Ugh, I’m ashamed to admit that.
I like Twilight, don’t get me wrong. No, it’s not great literature, but it’s a good story. You know, if you ignore the dysfunctional relationship between Bella and Edward. But to not be able to put it down?!? To go as far as reading Midnight Sun on Stephenie Meyer’s webpage again? I almost felt like I needed an intervention. I remember trying to get through them again when the third movie came out and not being all that interested. This time? Boom! Off to the races!
I have to chalk it up to stress. When I’m tired and/ or stressed out, I tend to get more easily hooked into fictional worlds.
Are there any others out there who get like that? What was the last book that totally hooked you? (I know people read this blog… stop being shy and take a minute to comment!)
