What’s The last book that kept me “up all night” reading under the covers?
I will be the first to admit that I was a bit of a late bloomer when it came to reading. I actually only became an avid reader when a group of friends harassed me to read Twilight. I think I was maybe eighteen at the time. The first movie was just about to come out and my friend Courtney begged and pleaded that I just give it a chance. After a lot of grumbling I finally conceded and set about reading the Twilight series. What did this book do to me? It changed my life. Is Twilight the most amazing book ever written? No, it is not. But let me tell you, I stayed up ALL night reading it before moving on to book two, and then three, and then four. I read all four books in five days and they are not small books. What I loved so much about them is that they made me feel something and they opened up the world of reading to me. I never knew what it really meant to be a reader until these books. I never knew that a book could make me cry or make my heart feel a physical ache. About a year later I found myself re-reading the series under my covers, late at night with a wimpy little reading light as I tried not to wake my boyfriend who was sleeping only a foot away but I just couldn’t put it down. Now, seven years later, I’ll say that those particular books don’t really grab my attention anymore but I still remember those late nights, buried under my covers reading away as I fell in love with Bella and Edward.
