Damn book!

I'm reading "Gone Girl" and it's been okay to read.  I only read a few pages at a time at night and then put it down.  Last night I was pretty tired.  I figured I would be asleep by 10:30pm after reading a few pages......until the damn book got really really good.  I couldn't stop putting it down and I kept giving myself "10 more minutes" but then I couldn't stop at that chapter so I read the next one.  I didn't get to sleep until 1am.   

I'm about half done with the book and cannot wait to finish it.  I'm reading on several reviews that the ending just knocks you out....something totally unexpected and I can't wait to see what happens. 

Unfortunately....I'm tired now!  I wish I can close my office door and take a nap.

Reminds of those "nerd girl" problems posts on Pinterest, being tired not from partying but staying up with a good book, lol.

Enjoy the rest tonight!

I loved Gone Girl! I read it last month. I was up way to late reading The Kitchen House last night. I was almost to the end of the book, and I couldn't wait to find out how it ended.

I will have to check that one out.  One of my favorite authors, Harlan Coben, just came out with another book.  I'll have to put that on my wishlist too.

I probably never would have read it, but my book club chose it for this month's book. It was really good, and somewhat fitting that I had just finished The Help.

I have read The Help....overall, pretty good....but have not seen the movie yet.

I loved Gone Girl!  I read all of her other books, too, but Gone Girl was by far the best.

I hate when that happens! 

I haven't read any of her stuff yet but I have all 3 of her books on my list to read.
