I'm not sure how long ago my sister first told me I had to read the Twilight series. But, I blew her off. Then my mom started them. And I blew her off, too. Then Abel randomly suggested we watch the movie a few weeks ago. He was ready to turn it off in about 15 minutes but I was hooked. It wasn't a great movie, but it was good enough. And I knew that people who are crazy about Twilight said that the movie didn't even come close to doing the book justice. I could see the potential. Luckily my mom was visiting the next weekend and was able to bring the first book with her.

I could not put it down.

I finished it in a few days and promptly bought the second one at Target. I can't even remember the last time I bought a book instead of getting it from the library but I just had to have that book. Immediately.

I finished the second book last night.

Numbers three and four are all checked out at the library so I put out a plea to our town listserv to borrow them. I was fully prepared to buy them tonight but luckily a friend and neighbor replied that I could borrow her copies. I'm going to pick them up tonight.

If you, like me, have blown off this whole Twilight hysteria I'm begging you: don't wait another second. Start reading today! You won't be disappointed.

  1. I totally agree! I waited a while to start and read the whole series between Halloween and Thanksgiving last year. Then I went nuts and joined some Facebook Twilight groups and bought a shirt. And after that, when I was ready, I slowly moved on. Enjoy!!

  2. yep. I'm telling you, I have not met a single person who has read these books who does not absolutely LOVE THEM. teenaged girls and boys, grandparents, united states marines, etc. Everybody. Btw, the 3rd book was my favorite so you're in for a treat. But, a lot of other people i've talked to favor the last book.

  3. I'm starting book 2 tonight, but I just checked my library's listing to make sure that I can find books 3 & 4 there too. Supposedly, they are available and I plan to pick them up tonight so that I will have NO DELAYS in flying through this series. I'm not really a book buyer, but I know that I'll end up buying this entire series. I'm glad to see from your sister's comment that books 3 and maybe 4 are even better! As soon as we're both finished with the series, let's get together for lunch and have a discussion.:)

  4. They are definitely books you can't put down! I didn't start them till three books were out, then I had to wait a year for the fourth one!
    Kind of brings you back to high school and lets you forget about all your responsibilites for a few days. We need that once in a while!

  5. I did the same with no. 1. I have no. 2 here but am afraid to start it because I know I will go into a time warp for a few days!


Comments make my day. Thanks!
