Eating My Words...

So many of you have been telling me about the "Twilight" series of books. And I haven't heard of ANYONE NOT liking it. A few of you even invited me to see the movie and I laughed at your eagerness seeing the FIRST showing on opening day and I had ZERO interest. I am not a Vampire kind of girl. And it is supposed to be a teenage novel. Seriously..who would have thought???? Well, I am confessing....and eating my words. It is BY FAR the BEST book I have read in a long time. I couldn't put the first book Twilight down. I read it last weekend in two days. And trust me when I say it was painful to take a break from it. Then after finishing it, I had to get my hands on the next book. A friend let me borrow it and I read it this past weekend in two days. And these are not short books people. And I am not a fast reader. It's just once you start reading YOU CAN'T put the book down. So I finished New Moon this morning and my sweet friend handed me Eclipse (the third book in the series) at church today. She knew how addicting they are and assumed I would probably finish the second book over the weekend. I looked at Frank and just laughed when she handed it to me. He gave her a sarcastic "thank you." I think he thinks he has lost me to the Vampires. LOL. I keep telling him only two more books and then he'll have me back. And can I tell you how excited I am to see the movie that comes out on DVD the 21st of this month? Pathetic, I know....but I am addicted.

Oh, girl! Welcome to the Twilight obsession! I fell in love with the books and could not put them down. I am ashamed to admit that I also fell in love with a fictional character, which I never knew was possible! :) Enjoy!

I just started Twilight on our trip this weekend! I too, was not interested, but after all the girls in my neighborhood read them all and couldn't stop talking about it, I gave it a try. I read all night in our hotel with a flashlight, while my family slept.

okay, you KNOW I was just like you too because we just talked about it, but I am also officially addicted and pretty sure I am IN LOVE with Edward! I haven't finished it yet, but will within the next day or two which says a LOT since it is like a 500 page book and I will have finished it in a WEEK! We will have to chat all about it! I need to go find the second one now so I am ready!

I have never read them....and everyone is making me interested. I am not so much the reader either. Maybe I will take the twilight challenge! :)

Welcome to the club! They are so fun to read. What a fun getaway from reality, right? Let me know what you think of the movie.

Your words are mine word for word. Me, into Vampire books, no! Is it really that good? I have really started enjoying reading too so maybe I should check it out.

Isn't it embarrassing how good this vampire teen lit stuff is? I am crazy about it. I think I am in love with Edward. How did she make a vampire seem so dang attractive? LOL. I have purposely not even opened Eclipse because I have house shopping to do. But its day is near, very near!
