Since having Annmarie, I hadn’t read a single book until I served jury duty last month (I read Tina Fey’s “Bossypants”). That was 13 months of only reading magazines and even those were only read while hiding in my bathroom.
I miss reading so I’m trying to get back into it. During some spring cleaning, I uncovered 2 books that I haven’t read but want to. But before I even started those… I totally got sucked into a pop culture phenomenon.
I am reading The Hunger Games.
As embarrassing as it is to admit that I’m reading a young adult novel as a not young adult, I have to admit that I am REALLY into it. Like I can’t put it down. I actually dreamt that I was participating in the damn Hunger Games last night. I really like this book.
I tried reading Twilight and will forever stand by my opinion that it was one of the worst things I’ve ever read in my life. AWFUL. The movies are equally awful.
I have no desire to read the soft porn book “50 Shades of Grey“.
But The Hunger Games? There was just so my hype around the movie that I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
My 5 year wedding anniversary is coming up and we don’t have anything spectacular planned on the actual date. My in-laws will watch AM while we go do dinner and a movie. And you better believe we are seeing The Hunger Games.
I realize I am several years late on this book phenomenon. Maybe next year I’ll start reading Harry Potter. Ha!
The next book I’ll be reading is Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point (it was one of the books discovered during spring cleaning).
What are you reading?
