i quit eclipse

so, i'm the world's biggest loser, i guess. i have been trying to stay awake during eclipse for weeks now. i constantly fall asleep. i'm sick of these characters. maybe i should've spaced out my reading. i don't know. but i'm done. i've got about a hundred pages left & i'm done for now, at least. i'm going to start reading something else. its just a waste of my time. i'm craving something deeper. less dramatic & less high school. sorry to disappoint. please feel free to leave comments & discuss. don't worry about ruining the ending for me, if anything, it'll catch my interest again & i might someday finish it. but not for the next month. i've got a stack of books that have been calling my name for too long!

I finished the book and it totally leaves it open for book 4. I'm with you, Hayley, not sure I can stand the suspense any longer.

I just hope 4 is better. I thought Eclipse was a huge dissapointment. I loved Twilight and then it's gone down hill from there. Finish the last 100 pgs right before the 4th comes out. I know I have ranted about this before, but Bella totally annoyed me. I just couldn't stomach her by the end.

I'm reading it now. But I am liking it, for what it is.

This post makes me feel much better that I haven't started it yet. I have been wanting to, but maybe I'll wait...I think I'm going to read Year of Wonders next (because I saw it on your blog!! Yay!)

I'm wondering about Twilight? I a little under 1/2 way and I'm a little disappointed. I'll finish this one, but I might have my fill there. We'll see.

you gotta read what you are in the mood for. Hold off for awhile if it's boring you. I did like it, but I was in the mood for some fluff at the time. What are you going to read next?

Btw, I did keep going on Middlesex. It def. got better, but I had to stop for book club book...I'll go back to it later though.

Holly O'Keefe said...

Tara was reading the wrong book club book though!!! haha. I outed Tara.

I'm still on the audio book version of Twilight. The story isn't catching me like I thought it would. *shrug*

Emily said...

Never read the series. BUT...I am way impressed with the fact you haven't had a DR P today! Good Job. I've been downing the D. Coke like it's water. :(

i have eclipse and new moon sitting here and i'm not motivated to start them, either. i also have a stack of books i WANT to read, but feel all the pressure of "you have to read eclipse! you have to read new moon". so maybe i'll just return them to naomi and be done with it.

Okay, I am pages away from finishing Eclipse. Yes, Bella is a needy teenage girl, but I think I liked this book better than New Moon! I don't know how you didn't get into it. What with the vampire wars and alliances and such. I think it is pretty darn good! But you'll like Glass Castle too, that was a good one! That is the one, in fact, Tara started to read by mistake. haha. I am already on her list, might as well live it up!
