I finished rereading Odd Thomas last night. It’s, perhaps, my favorite book. Well, it’s a series. So, I guess I should say it’s my favorite series. The newest book came out at the end of July, but I’m practicing Stormy’s delayed gratification and rereading the other four books first.
So, I’m done with the first one, and am about to start the next in a few minutes. If you have not read these books already, I highly recommend that you do so. They’re amazing, and Dean Koontz knows how to write an ending. I’ve read this book more times than I care to admit…. but the ending still gets to me. Seriously. Amazing books.
Another reason to read them? The movie is supposedly coming out next year. Get on the bandwagon before there is a bandwagon, guys. I’m excited, but scared. I hope they don’t ruin it. Hollywood usually messes up everything that I love.
They’re also putting out an Ender’s Game movie (With Harrison Ford. I adore him.) next year. That’s another amazing book. In fact, my Kindle’s name is Ender. It was the first book I downloaded and read on him.
Yes, my electronics are all male and most have names. I call them by name, too. When I take my iPod on a run, I say, “Dallas and I are going on a run.” I’m weird like that.
Long story short: Hollywood better not mess up two of my favorite books. Also, you should read both of those books now, kthx.
Ender’s Game is also a series, but I didn’t particularly care for the other books. It stands well on it’s own, and the others have a different theme. It’s hard to explain, but hopefully someone, somewhere agrees.
We’re meeting up with Megan and family on Sunday for a picnic and hiking at the nature preserve. I’m pretty excited. We’re each making something, and I am probably going to make pulled pork/chicken (whichever is on sale) sandwiches with an Asian twist. Hopefully they turn out delicious.
Also, I ran on the sidewalk last night. I now remember why I haven’t done that in 3-4 months. My hip hurt for a bit, but stretching took care of it. At least I know that I can do it sporadically, just not all the time. Stupid joint pain, anyway.
I’m just typing for the sake of typing at this point, so I will shut up. Hope you guys have an amazing weekend. Do you have any awesome plans??
Also, book recommendations are needed now. What is your favorite book?
