So yesterday I wrote about the lack of sleep I’ve been getting. Today, I had a choice:
Feed the pets and go back to bed.
Rise and shine and finish reading Divergent.
I choose the book.
As the snow falls (lovely, more snow), I am warm and cozy here on the couch with the puppy who graced me with 15 extra minutes of sleep today.
I am feeling that feeling you get when you finally finish a book that you were fervently tearing through and then, when it ends, you wish it hadn’t ended so soon.
And it’s only 7:15.
It will be hard to not spend the rest of the day reading the sequel.
It’s possible our 8th Grade Honors Language Arts will be reading this next year and I think they will love it. I am anxious to see how the 8th grade language arts teachers approach this book and the themes they pull from it.
typically ever write book reviews and I’m not going to now. But if you have the chance to read it, I highly recommend you do. I loved it more than The Hunger Games, for reasons I cannot fully explain.
If I had to try…..I think because it’s, in part, about facing your fears and, in part, about being selfless. There is some irony in that which speaks volumes.
And obviously, I am the Queen of Irony this weekend.
