Sleep Deprivation

I am soooo tired. I was reading till 1am and had to get up for work at 5am!

The reason for my sleep deprivation is Scott Westerfeld's Uglies trilogy. I was reading Pretties- the second in the series and I just could not put the bloody thing down.

Some people read before bed to put them to sleep. If I fall asleep part way through a book I am reading the wrong book! Usually I find myself fighting the sleepiness because I can't wait to finish the book and know what happens.

Needless to say I have spent most of my day today highly caffeinated and trying to convince myself that I need an early night more than I need to read Specials- the third book- tonight.

I'm saving the actual review for when I finish the series which probably won't be long.....

I so know what you mean. I've been working some OT at work and my reading has suffered for it. Tonight the idea was to go home, eat a little, get on a couple of facebook games, read Outlander, and go to sleep. I've eaten and that's all I've accomplished.
