Friday Freestyle: Crawled Out from Under a Rock Contest
So, apparently, I live my life hidden under a rock. Fortunately, I'm not alone. Turns out some of you live there with me.
What am I rambling about this week? Well, despite being a Mundie Moms blog follower, I didn't pick up a copy of City of Bones until a couple of weeks ago. Yeah, I know. There are three books, a prequel, and now a movie series in the works. See -- living under a rock. (If you want to know what I thought of the book, check out my review over on my blog.)
You're going to stone me when I tell you I haven't read the Catching Fire series yet either. *hangs head and waits for rocks to hit*
Thankfully, my fellow Oasis ladies made me feel better. You see, Jessica only finished the Mortal Instrument series a week or so ago -- meaning she was hiding under the same rock I was.
A.E. only recently read the Catching Fire series to make sure they were nothing like her own dystopian and to see what all the fuss was about. (She didn't like them enough to read book 3 even, but admits that will make her a "sinner" to most of y'all.)
Nikki confessed that she didn't pick up the Twilight saga until after the movie roles had already been cast. (Not that I blame her for reading them at that point - 'cause holy hotness, Batman, I love me some Rob Pattinson. But I digress.)
The point is, from time to time, we all find ourselves emerging from under the shadow of a rock. If you've been sharing rock realty with me on the Mortal Instrument series, it's time you came out too. Leave a comment below, telling us what book(s) you put off reading when it seemed the rest of the world was devouring them. Add your e-mail address to the comment and you'll be entered to win my personal copy of City of Bones (Nope, nothing special about it, except that I read it, which is, you must admit, sort of cool. Okay, or not.)
