Book of a Thousand Days

Can you believe I'm reading another book (in Cancun I read The Goose Girl)? Both books are by Shannon Hale and I gotta say, I'm loving her stuff. The way she writes makes me envious! I so wish I could write like that...but at least I can read it. I am really enjoying the book I'm reading now, Book of a Thousand Days. I thought I'd share a favorite passage so far:
"But what ails her? Could it just be she's that heartsick for her love, Khan Tegus? I can't wrap my thoughts around how deep their love must be. It's too high above me. It's surely a powerful love that bids a girl brick herself away from Eternal Blue Sky for seven years. I once liked a boy named Yeke with kind eyes, but I wouldn't give up the sun for him. Her khan must be such a man from legend, a man formed from Evela, goddess of sunlight. Perhaps if I looked at him, I'd have to squint. I'll ask me lady."
Love it!!

I love Shannon Hale! Goose Girl is my favorite, but Austenland is also good. Let me know if you wanna borrow it when you're done with Thousand Days.

Ok so i am not a big reader but when i do read a book either i put it down within like 2 minutes and never touch it again or i am hooked and done with it in like a week. Do her books get you hooked fast?
