I've been reading a number of books that have been on my list for a long time. What is interesting is that they start off so slow and I've had a hard time getting into them. But once I get part way into them I'm hooked. I'm not sure what is going on with them. Normally I start a book and can't put it down. It is possible that this new phenomena is because these are books that I've wanted to read for a while and might not be my standard crap vampire chick-lit books. For whatever reason I'm really enjoying these new novels!
