I gave in

Finally after months and months of hearing about these books I gave in and read them. I wasn't planing on it because for some weird reason I really didn't want to read them even though everyone said how much they loved them.
A couple of weeks ago I was at the Onken's house and Debi was reading them and she offered them to me. I couldn't resist. After 9 months of reading about pregnancy and baby I needed some kind of entertainment.

So, the verdit is that they are......... good. Not great and deffenitly not the best thing I've ever read but the author succeds in taking you into this other world and she takes your mind out of reality. Which I like now and then. So, long story short I would recommend these books but I wouldn't make them out to be the best thing ever because you will be dissopointed if thats what you expect.

I was a little dissapointed at the end of the last book. I was looking forward to some gore.

Amen! Seriously, I don't get all the hype. I read the first one after hearing all my friends talk about it for months, and I came to the same conclusion as you. Maybe my expectations were set to high because of all the hype. I haven't read the books that followed, and am not sure that I will. There are other books I'd rather spend my time reading!

Good luck over the next couple of weeks! You may not be sleeping great now because of the uncomfortableness, but it'll just get worse once Cado arrives! So, take advantage of sleep right now (including naps)! Can't wait to meet him!
