Vampires

August 1st i started reading Stephanie Myer's TWILIGHT series... As of Tuesday this week (12th of August) i was done with the entire series. (4 books) Now, granted they are an easy read... but there is like 700 pages in each book. So, needless to say i either A. had more free time then i thought i had or B: I neglected the things i should've been doing to read the stupid books. Chances are the later of the two actually happened. Here is my opinion of the series...
I did not want to read the books... First off because EVERYONE is reading the series. Just like say- Harry Potter.... it seemed to be the popular thing to do. I mean, seriously there are even church groups in Tennessee who are having book clubs, and renting out theaters for when the movie comes out... It's not even a church author. Sure, Stephanie went to school at BYU, but clearly the book is not a LDS novel... There is cussing, and sex ... not to mention Vampires and Werewolves... Anyway...And since i'm clearly a non conformist i did not want to be seen reading these books. Not to mention, i have plenty of other things i need to be doing besides ready some Youth Fiction. PLEASE!
But, I had a good friend who let me borrow a copy and said I had to read it... so i did...
The outcome -I read the series in 12 days, I enjoyed them thoroughly and worse of them all....

I'm completely in love with a vampire!!! LOL

Glad you liked them.. I'm finishing number four...but I'm deeply disappointed in them. The first was so good...the rest I'm not so sure about!

Just like you to fall in love with a vampire. I am happy to say that I have not fallen into the series yet. You know me, holding out because it's the "in" thing to read.

That's funny. I refuse to read them for the same reason. Actually, I secretly wish I could but my house would proabably fall apart since once I start a book I can't stop.

I'm just not there yet. I hear all of the rants and raves, but haven't found the desire to read it. Supposedly they are coming out with a movie now??? I'll enjoy it through the rest of you.
