There are times I love a good binge. Not with eating. That would be bad. Oh, I could totally do it (I have done it), but certainly wouldn’t feel well after. Good thing there are better (and healthier) ways to binge.

When I finished the revisions of Blind Temptation, I rewarded myself with watching the Twilight movies all in one day. That was fun. But it was my reward after revisions, not a first draft. So I wanted my reward for finishing the first draft of Ghostly Interlude to be a little more…extravagant. And what’s more extravagant than reading all six books of the Bloodlines series (by Richelle Mead)? This reward would definitely take more than one day.

But could I read the series in a week? Seems like I can! I should finish it up today. One week after I started. Best binge EVER! I haven’t felt this obsessed over characters in a long time. Of course, that probably has a lot to do with the books, too!

Downside with binge reading? Remembering to do OTHER stuff. You know, like write the Friday post to my blog. Oops! J

So… what was the last thing you binged on? Was it good or was it bad? So glad mine was good. Actually, it was awesome!

Have a great day!

We're quasi-binging on Twin Peaks right now. It's a tough one to binge on, because the episodes are almost an hour long and it's so darn weird you need time to process the zaniness.

I find it's tough to binge read a particular author (especially a series) because I kind of start to get sick of the voice after a while. Congrats on finishing your draft!

We're binging on Dr Who right now. It's been a while since we've seen it so it's kind of neat to remember some things and be surprised by others.

Jeff - There are some series I haven't been able to read in a binge, but this one wasn't one of them...thank goodness. I remember watching Twin Peaks when it was first on. I thought it was weird then!

Maria - Haven't gotten around to Dr Who yet. Probably after I'm finished catching up with Supernatural (only two seasons behind!).

Ivy - Is that good or bad? Haha! :)
