Pre Post Script. I was going to name this post something about redemption but I didn’t want it to be to cliché because of the title of the book. Now you may proceed.
The first book I read of the year, and the first post of the year, came from a book called The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden. I stayed up until 3 in the morning to finish it and then there was another hour of me being mad at the cliffhanger ending. I would compare this cliffhanger to the Cliffs of Insanity in “The Princess Bride”. Luckily, I had New Years Day off so it didn’t matter I was up most of the night. (I was up at 8 anyway. And I haven’t been awake at 4 in the morning since like ever) Go read that post to find out more about that book and how I felt about it. I didn’t expect to like it. But I did. Obviously, since I stayed up until all hours of the morning.
All this to say the sequel popped up on my nook today. If I didn’t have people in the museum, I’d pretty much be jumping up and down and clapping my hands like a school girl. Is it okay that I have been reading while I work? And for any questions out there, let me answer that question. Yes, Outlander would get that kind of reaction too. There is no way in hell you’d hand me that book and I wouldn’t read it. As sad as this is, I’m like a third of the way through it all ready. I know I haven’t talked about it much but I was totally excited about this book to come out and I forgot that it was coming out today. Hence the almost child-like reaction when it popped up on my nook. (I had it pre-ordered)
Reading this makes me wonder about parents. I was recently talking to one of my librarians and we were discussing discipline in children and how 40 years ago was so different from now because of how parents discipline their kids. 40 years ago seemed so harsh and now it seems so lenient. To me anyway. I don’t have kids and probably won’t for a long time. But from what I’ve noticed from just observing, there are lots of things I wouldn’t let my kids do that I see people allowing. I was lucky that I knew my limits growing up and didn’t push them to much and that my parents set the limits but still let me make my own decisions.
This book also makes me think about sturdy relationships. Not like me and boy relationships but the ones both people are fully in. Because let’s face it, boy and I were barely in like and we knew each other for like 2 weeks. Who are we kidding? Who was I kidding? The thing that I’ve always had with Callie and Kayden is that they truly do like/love each other and they help each other through situations but their not good situations. I don’t want to give away the first book but these are scary things to deal with as a freshman in college. I love them together but I’m scared for their situation. I constantly ask myself if they’ll make it. Not just as a couple, but just in general. Wait……their fictional characters. I don’t have to be worried. They’re not real. I get involved in my books, can you tell?
I think that Jessica Sorenson did a fantastic job at creating a realistic world.
I don’t think I have anything left to talk about. I WILL be having a review of this book. I do have definite opinions about this book all ready and I’m only a third of the way through.
So to randomly change the subject, I was telling my mom about my shelf making adventure that I talked about yesterday and she was amazed that I would make my own shelves. Yes, I am a big kid and the only thing I messed up on was I got the backing turned around. Why is my mom constantly surprised about my amazingness? She shouldn’t be.
