I'd heard so much about the Twilight books and movies, but it just didn't seem like my "thing."  I'm very easily scared ~ I can't even watch shows like CSI or 48 Hours.  Don't even get me started on horror movies.  I can't even watch the previews for horror movies.  I knew that the Twilight books and movies weren't considered "horror," but I did know they involved vampires.  I've never been a fan of vampire stories.  Even when Tom Cruise (who I was in love with for most of my young-adulthood) was in Interview with a Vampire, I was NOT impressed - yuck!  Recently, a friend of mine invited me to a "girls night out" to watch Twilight.  I was really going more for the company than the movie.  Before it started I even asked if it was scary ~ it is about vampires!  I really enjoyed the movie, and thought I should take a stab at the book.  From the moment I started the first book, Twilight, I have been hooked!  Of course the book is better than the movie, but it was also nice to already have a face for each character in my head.  It IS a love story, which I'm always a sucker for, but I never imagined that I would be so involved in the story - and actually in "love" with the vampire myself!  I love that it is a unique story to me, nothing like I've ever read before.  I've been reading non-stop for 3 days now.  I just finished the second book in the series, New Moon.  I feel bad that my husband has been a widow and my kids have been motherless for those three days.  I also feel bad that my new little blog is being neglected, not to mention that I haven't read any other blogs for days!  So, this morning when I finished the second book, I decided not to buy the new one until I got some things accomplished.  So far I've done some laundry, cleaned the bathroom, kitchen and living room, and now I'm writing this post.  I've gotten so much done!  But I have to admit that even while I was doing all this, I was still thinking about Edward, Bella and all of my vampire friends!  So, right now I'm thinking I really did get a lot done, and it just might be time to head to Target to pick up a few things ... and if a certain black book about vampires should end up in my cart ... it wouldn't be so bad, but ... you may not hear from me again for a few days ...


  1. LOL! I'm the same way about scarey and suspenseful shows/movies!! I was hesitant when we 'netflixed' the 1st movie, but really liked it!! Haven't read the book.. I'm afraid I'd be the same way, like with Nicholas Sparks books. :)

  2. Well the good and bad news is that you're half way through. I had the same "guilty pleasure" attitude about the series and, let's just say, it got worse in the second half of the story! Enjoy it now, for the Twilight hangover is a tough one :)
