I Have Neglected the Sewing Machine

For the past few days the sewing machine has been calling my name, screaming actually, but I have been busy... reading.

Several years ago a friend of mine recommended 'The Time Traveler's Wife'. Said it was a great book and thought I would love it. Well it remained on my 'you need to buy this book' list for a couple of years... then it remained on the bookshelf for an additional year. However, I picked it up 2 days ago and didn't put it down till I finished it!

The writing is astounding and the general storyline is unbelievable. I love to read, and usually walk away saying that it was a good book, worth the time. Rarely do I walk away still tied up in the emotions of the book. The book grabs you, and pulls you in.

Obviously I am still reeling from the book. The best part was that you didn't know how it would end. I usually start a book and know where it is going... the couple will end up happily ever after, the villian will be caught etc. But this book I was completely clueless! You spend the entire time wondering how it could possibly end! (And it does end good!)

Well shortly after finishing the book, watching tv late at night I saw a very interesting trailer... the book has been converted into a movie.... coming out on August 14th!!!!! I will definitely be going to see this one, I just hope it lives up to the book!
