Done

I think I need a drink.

I finished the end.

I cried. I gasped out loud. I caused a lot of concern on Paige's part because she doesn't want to read if it's anything sad, but we all know she will.

I reread the ending three times to make sure I totally understand. I finally did.

I now am the owner of a HUGE hocking head ache because I didn't monitor my caffeine intake and got behind. That and I probably needed to wear my glasses. That are in the van.

The Man is good. He managed to buy TWO copies of this literary genius. Makenna was our slave this morning because she wanted that book BAD. Oh hush. We were just finally able to get her to do her chores and be done with them. She's a quarter of the way through and hasn't come up for air yet.

I personally believe that Miss Author did an amazing job tying it all together and I stand in awe of her magical writing abilities. There should be no book to follow this one. It's over.

Remy finished it in 6 hours, while Mom took like 10! I'm going to to and re-read parts because there at the end I know I was just burning through it. "Mom! What page are you on?" We finally all went to bed at 1am, nearly 12 hours after we got the book!

It was wonderful! I had to walk away from it several times saying "I just can't read it..." I cried too....hmmm, did we cry at the same parts I wonder?

I definitely got teary-eyed a couple of times, and overall thought the book was excellent.

However, I the epilogue was kind of "eh" for me. I could've done without.

Your husband is pretty awesome for doing that little midnight errand. :)

having never read any of the books or seen any of the movies, I have no concept of what can be so all-fired important about losing sleep to a book *sigh* Y'all are my favorite weirdos :P

I'm with you.
It's over. It's over in a good way.
It can't be improved upon. Leave it alone.
I loved it. I've already started reading it for the second time, so I can read it to retain it, in every wonderful detail.
