SILO is in the hands of readers and I have to let it sit for a few weeks after I get notes anyway. My nightstand is...EMPTY! Gasp! How can that be? I'm not sure. I end every day reading. Some nights I stay up later than I should (thank you, Patrick Rothfuss). Between vacation and finishing up my first draft of SILO, it somehow slipped my notice that my TBR pile was dwindling.
I took a walk down to the library on Friday. It's funny that even as an adult, I get the same thrill leaving with an arm load of books. I got so carried away with excitement that I ended up with seven books. I realized at the desk that I still had to walk home with them. I managed to make it home.
As I was sorting through the stack at home, it hit me - I checked out the first book in six series. Oops. That was bright. Not a big deal if the series weren't already complete. But they are. I cracked open Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. Wow. It sucked me. Depressing, hard read but addictive from the get go. I closed it this afternoon. I'll be headed back to the library in the morning to get the next two books in the series.
In the meantime, I'm cracking open Midnighters as soon as I'm done with this blog post. Or maybe Uglies. But Midnighters The Secret Hour is a BRAND NEW book at my library so when I open it, it has that new book smell. Very attractive to me. We'll see which book wins out.
I haven't enjoyed a weekend this much in awhile. Rediscovering my old love - reading. Devouring, really would be a better word. My goal is a book in two days. I have plenty of time while I'm letting SILO marinate!
What about you - what are you reading? What's on your TBR pile? Any "must reads" for me?
