I'm back, world

on Sunday, August 19, 2012
I finished the Hunger Games trilogy this weekend.  Thank god, now I can breathe again.  My husband is thankful too, because I have been ignoring him lately because of it.  I've read lots of great books before, but none that swallowed me whole like this series did.  In an attempt to balance it all out (and because I still have a dream to read all the books in Oprah's book club), I picked up Anna Karenina at the library.  Oprah, after all, said it was the greatest love story ever written.  All 750 pages of it.  I don't know how long I'll last.  I don't know if I want to make it last that long.  I have discovered that I actually enjoy reading children's books and short stories.  I guess it's back to the Boxcar Children and Madeline L'Engle for me, then.

P.S. I just read that Anna Karenina is coming out as a movie this year.  None other than Keira Knightly and Jude Law, of course.

I'm so happy you read the hunger games and enjoyed them! Jessie made me read them about 2 years ago and I literally had no life. Trevor got annoyed. The movie...eh. It was okay...

Peter made me read Anna Karenina and I'm still trying to get through it. hahahaha. You should check out the trailer for the movie though. It looks so beautiful. It gave me some inspiration to keep tackling it..
