I mean, I really couldn't have said it better . . .

So, what's up with you guys? Reading anything that's got you spellbound these days? 


Two books recently affected me this way: Chime (Franny Billingsley) and Blood Red Road (Moira Young). I so so SO highly recommend them both!

Also, how fabulous is Colin Firth? I adore him.

  1. Oh, I LOVE Colin too. I'd seriously date him in a heartbeat. Especially now that he said such an awesome thing about novels.

  9. Well-said! I recently read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and felt exactly how Colin says it. Those are my favorite books, the ones that stick with you far beyond where you left off!

  11. Reading Pat Rothfuss' the Name Of The Wind.

    Damn, it hurts so good to know I will never approach his skill with words.

  12. I LOVE when a book makes me feel that way. Recently...Boy Toy by Barry Lyga and Shut Out. To be honest, I've read a lot of books this summer that have left me spell bound!
