As I sit here, trying to cool down from my work out this morning, I have a thought bouncing around in the void where my brain used to reside about a book I recently finished:
Don't you love it when you find a good book? Don't you love it when the characters are engaging, the story line intriguing, and the plot exciting? I found such a book this week. The Host by StephEnie Meyer (I highlight the "E" in her name because I spelled her name wrong once and I want to make sure never to make such an atrocious error again!) ;-)
Anyway, I picked up the book (stole the book is a better description) from Aly who was too slow in reading it. I found the first chapter or two a little confusing as I tried to get into the book, but then WHAM!! I was completely engaged in it. I read as I cooked dinner; I read as I did dishes; I went to bed early so I could read propped up by my pillow; I read as I drove the children to and from activities; I read during Sunday School & Sacrament Meeting. Okay, I am being a little dramatic, but you get the gist. I finished the book much faster than I wanted to. After I read the last page and closed the cover, I felt a little bit lonely. I missed the characters. I missed life in the caves and the stress of the raids. Who knew a book about aliens would totally capture my imagination like this?
I can answer that question easily! The same person that writes books about vampires can obviously write compelling books about aliens! (What an imagination StephEnie has!)
I'm now looking for another good book to read. Do you have any suggestions?
While I was looking for an image of the book, I found this review. I thought it mirrored my own thoughts on the book very closely!
