Twilight fanatic


I am sure many of you have heard of the recent phenomenon book series Twilight. It rivals Harry Potter in its popularity. The fourth book in the series, Breaking Dawn sold 1.3 million copies in the first 24 hours of its release. So naturally I had to see what the buzz was about.
When the movie was about to come out and I had seen interviews upon interviews and blogs upon blogs about the series I let my curiosity get the best of me and purchased the first book. Now being an avid reader whose shelves are littered with non fiction books I was a little skeptical. But it was in me, fiction. Growing up I was a big fan of V.C Andrews and Anne Rice. My favorite Author growing up was R.L. Stine. So I knew I could do it.

So I set out to read the first book of the series while my kids and my hubby were at the farm. Yes that's right a whole weekend to myself..It was glorious.

So I began the book and was hooked instantly. Twilight is obviously written for teenagers so it is an easy read.

Its about an impossible love and I don't think there is a girl out there that has read it who didn't fall in love with Edward Cullen, the main Character.
Yes its a book about Vampires but as with most books that is just the outer layer. It is really a beautiful love story.
Fast forward to now and I have read all 4 books and have seen the movie once( I plan on seeing it again next week ;))

And I still cant get enough. I am hopelessly addicted.

My good friend is going to send me the Harry Potter series for Christmas so that I can start reading them. I have never read the Potter books and have only seen the first movie. It will be interesting for me, lover of non fiction books to delve into the world of wizards. I am excited!

So if you haven't already go read Stephanie Meyers, Twilight series. Maybe you, like me, will find a renewed love for Fiction.

I think Michelle has all the Harry Potter books too, she is a reader. I wish I could be a reader but I think i'll stick to crafting.
