Tuesday #6

Last night, I finished listening to Eclipse on my iPod. I'm such an emotional wreck that I really wanted to cry at the end. I had all these thoughts running through my head on what is going to happen in the next book. I want to know so badly that I'm going to scour the internet in attempts to find a bootleg copy of it once it comes out. I am dying!!!

I started listening to Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry since I was done with my love stories, and felt that maybe my psyche needed something a bit different from the drastic vampireness for a few days. I like it so far. I think that Shannon Hale has taken a lot of her writing style from Lois Lowry.

Anyway, I was sitting there listening to the forming of a new person, in a new story when Drew came into the room. I told him that I really love reading. He started laughing at me. I then rephrased and said I like to read through my ears. LOL I made myself laugh.

I really do love reading though. I'm so glad I got out of the funk of "I don't like to read" - it's not that I don't like to read, but I like reading things that interest me. If that means it's all teenage drama and young adult novels, so be it. At least I'm expanding my horizons in one way or another.

As for here, it's ok. I'm trying REALLY hard not to think of how many days are left, but in doing so, that's all I think about. I'm just hoping it goes quickly.

We don't have any plans for after school today. I like not doing anything- it means I have more time to "read" my books. I still need to read Messenger? (another Lois Lowry book), and Jane Eyre. And if I finish those before I leave, then it's back to Twilight!!! (Unless I can somehow get a pdf copy of Breaking Dawn!!!!)

YOu really need to get the Anastasia Krupnik books by Lois Lowry. They are his best works! Trust me on this one.
