Hey guys! We went through eight (8!!!) bags of candy for Halloween. The adorable little (and big) monsters cleaned us out. And I learned something new about myself — I love Twix bars. How have I been missing out on this delightful treats? Cookie, caramel and chocolate all in one? This is a deadly combination for me. I might as well pull the solid crisco fat out of the pantry and layer it directly on my thighs.
And I absolutely refuse to discuss the Strawberry Beignet I ate on Sunday when I was out with Biker Witch. That was not my fault, but part of my “try new things” plan. Of course, this plan doesn’t include new exercise, LOL! Okay I do plan on increasing my exercise as soon as I’m physically able
Anyway, Halloween was good here and hope it was great for all of you.
Now lets talk about reading. I’m reading PRISONER by Annika Martin and I’m so sucked in. The things is, I should NOT like this book. It’s a dubious consent book, but the psychology of the heroine’s attraction and growing attachment to her kidnapper rings true to me. So while reading this, I’m having this internal dialogue with myself about how I shouldn’t like this book, yet I keep reading. As a writer, I think it’s freaking awesome. A writer who is essentially capturing my attention against my will.
Just like when I read MISERY by Stephen King years ago. OMG that book terrified me and yet I couldn’t stop reading.
Does this ever happen to you guys? Do you get sucked into a book almost against your will?
And how was your Halloween and weekend?
