Last night when I went up to bed, Rob was busy reading on his Sony Reader. I figured since I only had a couple more chapters left in my SisterChicks book, I would see if I could finish it. By 2am I was smiling and feeling refreshed with finishing yet another book.
I love the feeling of finishing a book that I have enjoyed or even gritted my teeth to get through the end of the book. Yes there are books that I kept a log on how many more pages were left, as it was just so bad. One of those books was Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye when I was back in high school. I picked the book as it was the book of choice for the Oprah Book Club. I regretted choosing that book for a book report from the end of the first couple chapters. Oh well, I managed through it and was relieved when I was done. Then there are books that I do not want to end, as I am enjoying the story too much. I am sad when the book is done but pleased on how it ended. Or it could have been one of the books that ends with a cliff hanger and I have to wait six months until the next book comes out. Oh I hate those ones!!! I have learned now that if I read a book that belongs to a series...I wait long enough so that when I finish one book I do not have to wait for the next one.
So what book will I start tonight?? I think I will switch over to a msytery suspense book to change up the pace from the previous story that I had to something that will be like a roller coaster ride. It is a book that I have been wanting to read for awhile and I am excited to start it. I will be reading "Before I Wake" by Dee Henderson. I will have to let you know how it is!!!
