Friday Reads: Outlander

School break begins in less than 2 hours, and I’m not sure who is more excited, Sophia or myself. Goodness, getting up early is the worst.

Not really. But give a pregnant girl some slack. Right now, in my narrow view, it’s the worst.

As of Saturday, I get to sleep in as long as Gabe cooperates and allows me to doze off on the couch. His internal alarm clock is set for 5:55 a.m. A bit early, but nothing Daniel Tiger can’t handle.

A break also means I can read without feeling guilty, and read I will. I’m wickedly late to this series. As in, I just heard about it two months ago and the first novel was published in 1991. I give myself some wicked grace here, though, as I was 6 years old. It’ll be fine.


Don't let this tame book cover fool you. You will not see the light of day until you've finished.

People, I just. I just can’t. It’s so good. I think I read the first one in a day. It’s a romance meets fantasy/time travel meets historical fiction. It’s amazing.

I easily have 10 or so novels checked out from the library. Forget it. All I’m reading is Outlander. And it’s subsequent seven following novels.

And there's a book nine! See, it's never too late to jump on a band wagon.

So far, I’ve finished Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, & Drums of Autumn. I just began The Fiery Cross. In, like two weeks. It’s ridiculous. The housework & laundry have barely been attended to, but I have Jamie & Claire.

Also, there’s a show, that aired on Starz this fall. Heaven help me, I downed the eight episodes in less than 48 hours. I may have stayed up until 2 a.m. on a couple of occasions. Both my head cold and pregnancy did not appreciate it, but how do you put it down?

The short answer: you don’t.

What books have been keeping you up late? I would love to hear!
