I can’t help it…

OK, this isn’t really Supe related (well it does involve time travel.. and that’s kind of supe-y) but I’m too depressed. I need to blog about it. About 2 weeks ago, I read a tweet mentioning the series “Outlander”. Being as I had just finished some other series and was looking for a new one to start, I decided to check it out. EC was interested too, so we decided we’d read them at the same time, and blog/ discuss them. Maybe a chapter per week or so, since they were long. Invite any blog readers to join us.
I struggled with the first three chapters, but then, oh then I fell (pun intended). I totally cheated, I couldn’t ration out a chapter a week. This stuff had me reading at a “Twilight” pace. There are even some similarites, I won’t go into by spoiling it. Seriously, I would step on Edward’s head to read more Jaime and it has made me say, “Eric Northman who?” When you have to look at #HotAlex and LTR Rob pics to get your mind off of a fictional literary crush, you know you’re in trouble.
It is now a week and a half later and I finished the book. EC has finished chapter 1. I think I’ll be reading it with her since I’m depressed and I miss these characters like I did with the Twilight ones. Thank goodness this series is twice as long as Twilight, and they don’t “Fade to Sad”.
That pic-Some other manip’ers idea of young Jaime. I can’t say that I blame them.
Fading to “Dragonfly in Amber”
