Anyway, and then I thought, why should I spend my whole vacation reading this book that's not grabbing me? Why not read something I'm really anxious about and dying to read?
So I sat on the bed, gathered a few of the "loudest" books, and read the first few pages of them all. I loved the history (history here meaning a refresher course of the first three books) pages at the beginning of Inheritance, then I jumped right into the first few pages of the first chapter. They were interesting enough, but then I thought, why would I start yet another 700 plus page fantasy this weekend? Why would I do that to myself? What am I thinking??
So I read the first bit of The Night Circus, a prologue of sorts. And it was short and sweet and simple and very mysterious. And really quite interesting.
I also read the first page (maybe even paragraph) of Supernaturally, which would definitely be quick and fun and easy. And it did appear from that first little bit that it would be. But I don't know, I just wasn't in the mood!
Then I looked over a few more books in the stacks, nothing seemed right. Nothing! Argh! Frustrating! The whole weekend! I just wanted something really, really, you know, really, GRABBING!
I picked up The Night Circus again. First chapter. Love the style. The mysterious feeling continued. Second chapter. Oh boy. Something is up. Third chapter. Hooked. Grabbed.
I think this is it... I'll be reading The Night Circus this weekend, for starters anyway. I hope I can get through more than just one book.
As for the Wheel of Time quest? On hold for these few days anyway. There's just not enough time for reading this one right now while it's so slow!
(Speaking of time.... we also saw the movie In Time last night. It's making me think twice how to spend my time, you know? We all have a clock counting down our minutes/months/years left on this earth, we just can't see it. So, why waste it? You know?)
I don't know why I feel I have to justify all this! Probably because the Wheel of Time book is a buddy read and I just can't quit on it! Probably because I need/want to read Inheritance before the author appearance, and it's not short. Probably because I'm just weird. Maybe you all get it? Maybe you feel the need to justify sometimes too?
Here's hoping many good things happening with your time this weekend! And lots of wonderful fascinating books to read too!
