I had heard about the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer long before all this hysteria errupted on the release of the movie… My little cousin had read all 4 books. My coworkers/cousins (shot out to Cinnamon, Jen, Sunny, Jo and Trush) had read all 4 books and were walking around with Twilight hoodies, Tshirts and posters at their desk. I was uninterested from the jump but hearing their little whispers and ohh’s and awh’s when in deep conversation about it…I just couldn’t take it anymore! I was curious. So I told myself I’d go buy the first book and read it. Eventually. Just to see what the big deal was. But I could never come around to finding the time to pick it up. Lucky for me, my cousins ended up buying me Twilight for my birthday.
I was done with Twilight in about 2 days. Only because it was Christmas and that would have been rude of me to have the book in my face during Christmas dinner and all the festivities. But it sure didn’t leave my mind at all. As soon as the snow cleared and I was mobile again I went and picked up book two. I’m on New Moon now.. a little past the middle. I haven’t been able to put the book down! I’m a junkie. Just like today, all I can think of is going home and reading the rest of the book and picking up the next book. I can’t wait to watch the movie even. ..I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s like crack. Not that I’ve tried crack but I would assume it’s just like it!!!
Some of my coworkers even went to Forks.. Jennifer, hoping to run into Edward Cullen’s I suppose? hahaa… Jen got some good pics of the Twilight scene in Forks check out her page http://jenniferland.shutterfly.com/ and go to the album titled “A Touch of Twilight”. If your a fan you will appreciate it. I gotta post one pic though. Bella’s car. Can’t believe Jen got this pic!! And I imagined it almost like this!!! I can’t believe Forks even has the whole town in Twilight mode. We’ll I can believe it and I’m sure they have rec’d a whole lot of traffic because of it.
I have sooo many questions and comments on the books.. but don’t want to get shot for releasing any information to someone that hasn’t read them. I try to make Martin listen to me tell him the story … but it’s like talking to a brick wall. .. if anyone has a forum or wants to start one, I’ll be the first crack head in line!! LOL =)
