Sunday Confessions Sept. 26, 2010

Sunday Confessions is a weekly meme.  I wanted to find a way to share a little about myself and learn more about my followers. Some of my topics will be book related, others not so much. This is all in good fun so please feel free leave a comment to participate.

I have read some really good books over the last few months. I mean like really really good books. The kind of books that make you want to call into work/school sick.  The kind of books that make you want to neglect everything else in your life so you can just sit and read.  The kind of books that after you have read the last page, leave you thinking about it long after you closed the book. I have been really lucky to come across some books like that.  So my question for this week is: 

What is the last book that you read that made you want to skip school or call in sick to work?

My answer is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  This book took me by surprise. I had heard a lot about it, mostly positive, so I thought I would give it a try. I checked it out from my library and before I was finished reading, I ordered it and Catching Fire. I knew these were books that I wanted for my collection.  Suzanne Collins is such a wonderful writer. I was so caught up with Katniss and Peeta that I couldn't put the book down. I have not read Mockingjay yet. I have been so busy that I haven't had the time. So PLEASE don't leave any spoilers in the comments. Good or bad I want to be completely surprised. 

So now it's your turn! Leave a comment and let me know what was the last book you read that made you want to skip school or call in sick to work.


  1. gail carriger's awesome parasol series.....was up till 3 in the morning with the first one, and that's rare for me!

  2. I have to say most recently was the Hunger Games series, especially Mockingjay. I had pre-ordered the book, but it wasn't in the mail, but my friend got her's before I did, so I ordered mine on the kindle and read it all that night, neglecting an important presentation and paper that I should have been working on. Then I finished the presentation in half an hour, got a B on the presentation, saved my grade with the paper, and read the most amazing book in the world. All in all, I say it was worth it. =)

  3. Isobelle Carmody's Obernewtyn Chronicles. I had the books confiscated for reading in class but I just got another copy from the library

  4. To K_sunshine1977- I have soulless on my shelf waiting to be read. I have wanted to read that series for some time now. From your comment I think I will have to buy the other books so I don't have to wait to read them :)
    To Katharos - I have not read Obernewtyn Chronicles. I will have to check them out:)
    To Najela - First, thanks for not giving me any spoilers :) Second I am glad you liked the book so much. I look forward to reading it and possibly neglected everything else. LOL
    Thanks for your comments and the new book recommendation. :D

  5. It's been a while...probably The Lonely Polygamist by Barry Udall.

  6. Assolutamente d'accordo con lei. Ottima idea, sono d'accordo con lei.
    Condivido pienamente il suo punto di vista. Ottima idea, sono d'accordo con lei.

  7. Well I didn't call out but I came in late. That was "Fade To Black" by Morgan Kearns. That book was soooo good. A must read.

  8. Hi Marcie...I was a little tired when I posted earlier....the author of The Lonely Polygamist is Brady (not Barry) Udall :)

  9. I just finished reading The Hunger Games yesterday. I definitely agree that it was a captivating read, but I don't think any book since HP7 has made me want to miss school or work (I actually did call out of work to read HP7, and I'm pretty sure I didn't go to class that day either lol).

  10. Wanda and The Book Girl, I will have to check those books out. I have Fade to Black but I still haven't read yet.
    Adam, I think I might be staying up late with HP soon. I have heard that it's an awesome book. I'm trying to wait to read it until after I've seen the movie. However I am not a patient person. I might be able to make it till Nov. but not much later :)

  11. Oh, no...I just got Hunger Games this week..better wait to read it...LOL

    Tough time choosing between many great books that I have felt that way about so I picked Lover Mine by J.R. Ward and also Divine Misdemeanors by Laurell K. Hamilton! Both really great books!!

  12. Hunger Games will do that to you!!

    Mine is probably Minder by Kaynak
