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.)


  1. I have to admit, I jumped on the Hunger Games train very late--and I STILL haven't read Mockingjay yet. I'm trying to get to it before the year is out, though. I also have to admit that I haven't read the series you mentioned in this post, either, except for Twilight. I will now hang my head in shame.

  2. Uh, I just bought this book last weekend. On a whim. I'd heard of it, but in my defense there are A LOT of good books out there.

  3. I read the Hunger Games series and LOVED it- I now hang on to every news story about the movie in the works b/c I'm kinda curious to see if it will be as good as the books. I only read Book 1 of the Twilight series and didn't bother with the rest. All I need is to see my Robert Pattinson on that big screen...we might have to fight over him btw...anyway, I live under the same rock as you b/c I've yet to get on the City of Bones bandwagon as well :)

  4. I have read the first 2 but am very late picking up City of Glass. Still need to go get it...
    The Hunger Games I was also very late picking up. Didn't try it until the second had already come out, was in WalMart and didn't feel like going to the bookstore, and it was the only book I could find that sounded decent. LOVED them! Hope you enjoy MI series!

  5. I've read the Hunger Games series and the Twilight Series. Have the third book in the Mortal Instruments series but haven't read any of them yet. On my list. As well as the vampire series that I can't recall the title.

    Would love to read City of Bones.

  6. The rock is the only place I get any writing done. That being said, you MUST READ HUNGER GAMES. Ahem.

    But I haven't gotten to City of Bones yet either, so count me in!

  7. CONTEST CLOSED. Pam Harris won!! Yeah, Pam.


Breaths that matter...
