So, last night — purely for something to do — I randomly decided to watch The Host, based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer. Seeing it again really only served to remind me how much I hate the movie and how much I super love the book and so I’m re-reading it now. <3
When I was still in my pre-teens, I remember going shopping for books with my mom and coming home with a copy of Christopher Pike’s The Tachyon Web. I had previously borrowed it from the school library, but never read it. Even after I owned a copy of it, I never made it very far. It wasn’t a lack of interest in the story, per-se. It just fell in-between the cracks of having other things to do, or other books to read.
Since I’ve been having trouble sleeping lately, I grabbed it off the bookshelf and I’ve started reading it. I’m ashamed to admit that after owning this young-adult book for more than fifteen years, this is the first time I actually got past the first twenty pages…
So far it’s actually pretty good. More on that once I’ve finished it.
