Okay, yes I am a huge book nerd. And I love that about myself (does that make me less humble?)
The last couple of books I've read have been amazing! So much so, I read them in a super short amount of time.
The first book I read was Eat Love Pray.
My friend Ashley let me borrow this book and it is seriously one of my favorites now. I saw the movie awhile ago and I honestly disliked it. A lot.
I was a little apprehensive about reading it, but Ashley assured me it was amazing. Within the first chapter I was hooked and in love.
I think part of the book's charm is that you can relate. Even though I am not in my 30s, nor have I ever been married (let alone divorced) I know heartbreak. I've been there. We've all been there and Elizabeth just knows how to hit home with that reality. She shares her feelings (without bad mouthing her ex) and somehow I just kept feeling "Yes!! That's how I felt exactly! How did you know?"
Her journey in trying to get to know herself again and be able to survive on her own once again was mesmerizing. I constantly felt inspired.
I definitely am glad I read this book and of course recommend it!
Have any of you already read it? Or watched the movie? What were your thoughts??!? Do share.
The other book I read (and yes, I am a little bit embarrassed to admit this.....).
Here's the short version of how this all started.....
I didn't want to read the books or watch the movies. I honestly have been fighting this trend since it's very conception. Then, just a month or so ago it was on tv. Steven told me I should watch it, that I would really like it. It seemed like a me movie apparently. I fought it at first, but then of course gave in and stayed up until 1am watching the damn thing.
I was hooked.
I started watching all the movies (although I haven't gotten to see the newest-so don't ruin it!!). And now I am reading the books (which my 5th and 6th grade students have already beat me on). We have constant talks about the books. No joke.
I love my job.
So I got the first book. And by the way, trying to locate a copy at the library (at any library) was one of the most difficult and annoying tasks. Ever.
But I finished it (today actually) and I cannot wait to read the rest.
Ok, dork moment over with now.
So tell me- how many of you are on the Twilight bandwagon with me? And how do you think the movies and books compare? I'm seriously curious!!
