Books

I am not going to write a review of every book I read, but I wanted to vent on my blog today that my sister was inspired, truly, to recommend this book to me. As silly as it sounds, this summer has been soooo busy that I have not have time to read until this week, and my sister just happened to e-mail me the recommendation to read this book. I right away and got it, and it was the perfect motivation for me to clean my house...

I am a little OCD and cannot sit down, relax and read without my house being clean. It's the same for when I make wipey cases, when I sew, etc. Now, it doesn't always turn out this way...sometimes the house has to be a mess and I just have to go ahead and do something anyways. BUT, this time, I knew I had the time and just needed the motivation. So I cleaned my little heart out and actually started the book at 11:00 that night. I only read the preface and the first chapter and knew that if I did not put it down right then, I would be reading all night. So I started the next day after working out, getting showered and straightening things up from breakfast. And I literally read ALL DAY LONG. I read while making the kids lunches, I read while going to the potty. I had to stop a few times, but pretty much just kept reading until I was done. And it was such a great book. I highly recommend reading it!!

Here is the books discription: Dante, a prisoner sent from fifteenth-century Italy into the present time as a punishment, meets and falls in love with Abby, a high school senior who may be the only one who can save him.

Now, don't let that scare you away. It's not all time machiney whatever...it's the best love story! More than a love story between the main characters, but between family members, etc. it is just reallllly good. It's also clean. I hate foul language in a book, among other things. What else can I say? Go get it, read it and you will love it!!

Now I have book two, but didn't start reading it today because I had too much to do...and tomorrow I have too much to do as well...so we are going for Saturday...in case you try to reach me and can't.... :):):):)

Yay! I'm so glad you loved it! I am definitely buying the series, provided that book 3 ends well and all. I loved book 1 so much that I didn't give it back to my friend who loaned it to me for a week after I finished so that I could go back and reread my favorite parts over and over! I know, ridiculous, but hey, that's me when it comes to books. I even bought Hillary the first 2 for her birthday next week! Hope you enjoy book 2!
