Twilight


Let me start by saying the only memory I have of the word "twilight" is from when Chloe was in driving school in Kentucky. And her instructor told her(with a very southern accent) "now honey you have to learn to drive in twilight,and twilight is very different than dusk"
Well that was 8 years ago and I rarely heard the word since then. Until now...
So I certainly never thought it would happen.Ever.I never thought I would give in to the hype. To the counterculture.But I did, I sold out. Of course, I am also years behind. But I'm like that with most things. It was 10 years after the Guess jeans fad that I bought a pair.I just upgraded to a "I Pod" from a walkman about a year ago.I'm sure I am on the brink of owning Crocs(wow I do need prayer) So when something new and exciting and cool comes along, you can bet I will be on board. Only it will be the wrong board and it will be about three years late.But, I'll get there eventually. Which is why today, almost two years after the stinkin' book even came out, I am on the Twilight bandwagon. I walked by that book for two years in Barnes and Noble. I snickered at the ladies in line buying it. I asked God to help them,and heal their empty souls. Ladies really, Vampires?
Well. I now have a copy... But with my new book I have found new friends, a sisterhood if you will, of fellow Twilighters. And they are a tight pack! They have posters on their blogs, and they camped out to get the latest book decked out in twilight t-shirts.My bosses wife told me today that she is on the third book of the series and she doesn't even READ? EVER!!(she didn't even start the the first book until a week ago) All the book babes have read it and most of Chloe's friends. I told the lady at the book store that the only reason I was getting it is because"I just had to know what all the fuss is about" And I even said it with a little bit of an attitude. Well now what happens when I have to go back for books two, three and four? It all started because I am going away this weekend with the hubby and just wanted something fun and light to read. Now the poor guy will be lucky if we even speak to each other. But even some of my friends with strong faith and really good marriages have loved this book and admitted to having moments of wishing their husband was a vampire? So I just have to dive in and see what this Edward is all about.I'm sure my review will be up as early as Monday, I am going to enjoy the weekend getaway with Steve but I have been known to sneak in a chapter sitting on the tub while putting on make up. And I did pack a book light just in case he gets sleepy from the Nyquil I packed.No,he doesnt have a cold but the first sign of a sniffle and he might need two tablespoons teaspoons. By the way I heard they are coming out with a Twilight movie based on the book? You can bet I will be on board for that one....

HAHAHA~! We got you babe. You fought the good fight but we have you now. So we need to find out if you will be an Edward or Jacob girl? Of course, to really know Jacob you HAVE to read the second book, so slip that Nyquil to poor Steve and get the second book~!

Have fun reading!

I hope you enjoy the series. I really liked the first book, didn't like the second one very much but trudged through it, really liked the third one and started the fourth but stopped right in the middle and have never finished it. It just got to be too much for me. I am in the Edward Camp however and I did really like the movie, not as much as Australia, but it was good. So good luck with it all, I'll be anxious to hear how you like the books.

I am utterly obsessed with the series! I gave in too...not into crocs, but into Twilight. haha. Sooooo great!

Ah, Twilight. I read them all this summer, along with her other book The Host. Loved them all. They do tend to take over your life though. Matt would get so mad that I would want to read instead of spend time with him. Enjoy :)

I hope you enjoy the book. The first one was by far my favorite. Bella is a little too much for me in the book... but I liked her character tons in the movie.
So Nyquil is the trick to guilt free reading, eh? I love it!

Ahem. No review yet? Not a good sign. Sounds like Edward was not your cup of tea maybe.

That is why book clubs are so much fun~! I loved Bella's character in the book so much more than the movie. It was fun to be "in" her head when even Edward could not. I think the third one is my favorite but I could not put down the fourth one either. How could you miss Bella....oops~! I was about to "spoil" the fourth book.
