Just finished...


The Twilight CRAZE!! If you haven't heard about this book, well...you must have been on Mars for a while. EVERYONE has been talking about it. I resisted reading it at first. I couldn't understand why everyone kept talking about this series...I mean, what can be so great about a book about Vampires? Wouldn't it be cheesy? Would it be scary? (I'm sort of a big wimp)
Well, Chad got it for me for my birthday and after four days of ignoring all of the responsibilities that I could (like dishes and laundry), I finished. I have to say that i really liked it. I'm not obsessed, but it was entertaining and kept me reading. I just wish Edward (the Vampire Hunk of the book) wasn't so pale. I know his pale description fit his character, but I just had a hard time believing he was as beautiful as he was supposed to be...If he was tan, I'd think he was a babe, but PALE???....Why
I need to get the next book (New Moon)but i think I'll wait a a week so Chad doesn't hate me...I'm not very social when my nose is stuck in a book.

i felt the same way when i got the first one...i think i looked at it for a few weeks li ke,"am i really going to read a book about vampires...so lame." but oh my heavens, child! how can you NOT be obsessed? i , along with the other fifty friends i know that read them, have all ignored our responsibilities, too!
how nice to think of of nothing but reading for a change! keep reading, the second gets a bit irratating at some points but only because you get so invested in the relationships, and then the third ...shoot. i LOVE edward! and andy is SO okay with it, too! i have the others if you want to borrow them!

addicred is un understatement. :) not that I am bragging, I am really not that fast of a reader, but I read all 3 in a week and a half, I don't think that I slept and my hubby is dreading when the 4th comes out because he won't see me again or be able to talk to me until I finish it... :) read it Rachel, read em all. :)

oh! and Happy Birthday to you! :) glad you had fun. Tell Chad that the first fish that I caught I buried it because I felt so bad, it died before I threw it back in. I buried it in a bucket of water thinking that it might be happier. Now take into account that I was only 6 yrs sold. :)

At first I didn't understand why everyone loved the book so much. I read the first one and I'll admit, I was intrigued. The second book was just annoying until the end and the third book I absolutely LOVED! I can't wait for the movie and the 4th book. :) Let me know how you like the 2nd one.
