What I just finished reading...

I finished a library book yesterday evening after I got home from work...ok I'll admit it...and while driving home from work. (Gimme a break, I was stuck in traffic people...and I was at the end of the book!! It was REALLY hard to put it down when I started moving again!! The ONLY time I can remember being glad about traffic!)

I had to recheck this book (and a couple others) twice because...

1) I had too many books at once
2) I had way too many projects going on (normal me)
3) lets be honest here, I am a slow reader!

But, once I started the book (a giant one at that...over 600 pages!) I REALLY enjoyed it!

At points I was smiling with joy, and then tearing up and crying in heartbreak. It played on my emotions like a Lifetime movie!

Here is what I just finished reading:

The Host
by Stephanie Meyer
I absolutely loved this book!

On my way back from dropping it off at the library I wanted to stop at Target to see if they have it and pick up a copy to own. So I could hold it in my hands and read it all over again!

I am serious when I say I loved this one!

Wanderer is one of my all time fave heroins now!


I am a loser at book reviews, so I won't try to do a review, I will just say

Stop whatever you are doing right now and go buy this book and read it!!

I am not kidding,

stop now and go buy this book.

Well, first finish reading this post, it is almost done I promise it won't be a long wait!

This isn't a book to be borrowed, or checked out from the library, because then you have to give it back...like poor, sad me!
(FYI: If you want to send The Host to me, you are more than welcome to. You know the saying about giving is better than receiving...well I want to bless you with the joy you feel when giving a wonderful gift by letting you get me this book! I will love you forever! Is anyone listening? I am putting it on my wish list on Amazon....Oh, who am I kidding, I have no restraint...the next coupon I get emailed to me from Borders will be begging to be used for this exact purpose! I know a sign when I see one!)

So enjoy your afternoon,
get your book ordered, or preferably picked up so you can start it NOW,
then call me in the morning...after you have stayed up all night reading because it is so good and you can't put it down...and tell me how much you loved it too!

The Host was my first Stephenie Meyer book, and I fell in love with her then.
I just recently re-read it, and still adored it. She couldn't seem to find the end - one more addition, then one more, then one more. I LOVED that part. leaving you one more little bit.
So, yes, you have to own it. I do.
I heard a rumor somewhere that there might be a sequel....

I think that book would be too weird for me!
