Sisterhood Everlasting

Every summer, I try to make it my goal to finish one book. Previous summer reading books have included Blink! The Tipping Point, and The Time Traveler’s Wife. Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to finish any of these books. Now, I don’t want you to get the idea that I’m not capable of finishing things I start, but with books it’s just tough. I get distracted, things come up, trips get planned, etc etc. I think the main issue is that I’m used to reading blogs everyday and since the length is much smaller in comparison to a book, I can’t seem to stay hooked.

When I learned last night that Ann Brashares had released a fifth book to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, I contemplated whether or not I would buy the book. Would it be worth $25 if I bought the book only to leave it lying around on my coffee table with only one chapter being read? Would I actually man-up and finish it? Maybe this time would be different. It did used to be one of my favorite series. I decided to take that chance and break that book curse. I WILL learn how to read BOTH blogs and books. So I walked myself down to Elliott Bay and bought the hardback, but surprised to find that the cover did not feature the pair of pants that the rest of the series had.

Wish me luck!
