Paperbacks. Feel a little bit closer

When you just finished the Kindle edition of an absolutely wonderful book, and an hour later you still feel like you’re head is spinning and you haven’t quite learned how to function in the Real World again, so you go out and buy the paperback version for a re-read, because this time when your eyes move along the page and your hands grip the pages and you smell that wonderful book smell, you’ll be able to slip a little bit deeper into the author’s marvelous Story World.

#TeamEdytheAndBeau

Just finished re-reading Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined. And I have to say again that I love this book soooo much more than Twilight.

Team Edythe and Beau ALL THE WAY.

But there’s one nagging issue that always crops up while I read: Poor Julie Black will not be able to have her Imprinted HEA because Beau and Edythe are unable to have children . . . It’s very sad. Anyone else think about this when they read Life and Death?

Fangirl or Unhealthy Obsession Case No. 21

​Release day! It’s finally here!

For the past seven days you’ve been like this on the outside:

Calm. Cool. Collected.

While on the inside:

It’s coming. It’s coming. It’s cooooooming!!

But now it’s here. You’ve set the day up right.
  1. Take day off work. CHECK
  2. Wake up at 11:50 p.m. CHECK
  3. Grab Kindle. CHECK
  4. Sneak past husband, children, and the dog. CHECK
  5. Find the quietest spot in the house to hide. CHECK
  6. Bring a blanket, water, and on-the-go food. CHECK
  7. Temporarily erase Facebook app so you don’t accidentally get any spoiler notifications from the fan groups. CHECK
  8. Anxiously and repeatedly hit the SYNC button on your Kindle until the book shows up. CHECK
  9. Begin reading. CHECK
  10. Five and a half hours, two bathroom breaks, one putting-the-book-down-and-hiding-in-the-closet-because-family-came-to-look-for-you later, you’re done.
  11. You close the book.
  12. Stare around the room.
  13. What is this feeling? It’s like you’ve lost your best friend.
  14. . . . You rub your tired, dry eyes. Take that last sip of water. Hug the Kindle to your chest. Take a deep breath. Nod. Tap the screen and begin re-reading. CHECK.

 

Fangirl or Unhealthy Obsession Case No. 20

​Only seven days left, not counting today, because no one counts today.

 

SEVEN DAYS!

Soon – SOON! – it will be in your hands.

The e-reader version AND paperback have already been ordered.

You created a secret countdown just in your head and as you cross off each number, you find yourself just a bit less contained than the day before. 

The calm, cool, collected you is slowly fading away and you fear that by the time June 20 hit, you’ll be like this. . .


But there’s nothing you can do to stop it, because it’s almost here. Only SEVEN DAYS left.
Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!! Sevennnnnn!!!!! Daysssssssss!!!!!
