Twilight

I just finished reading this yesterday: I picked it up last Wednesday without knowing a thing about it. If I had known it was about vampires I never would have thought about it twice. I'm really glad I gave it a chance though, because I was literally inseparable from my book. I even slept with it. I panicked when I reached the end, so I stopped at Walmart on my way into work yesterday around 0500. I could only find the Spanish version of the second book of the four-part series. I was on my way back out to the parking lot when I saw it on one of the end caps. It's called New Moon. I snapped it up, and I'm already on page 136. I'm one of those people that can't stop in the middle of a chapter. Just as I'm reaching the end of a chapter though my curiosity bites me, so I keep going. I've found myself in bed by 1930 this past week not only because I'm tired, but because I'm excited to read some more. I even took the book to work and read snippets between giving immunizations and pregnancy tests to Soldiers. The only problem with reading quickly is I know I'll have read the entire series in less than a month, and then it'll all be over. I hate it the end! I always want more. I'm even more excited that the first book has become a movie! Check out the trailer HERE.

A friend just recommended me that book, but the minute she said it was about vampires I was all like "Humm... I'm not into vampires anymore" so I never really gave a second thought.

So your post is really interesting to me, I might have to pick it up!

Not now though, 'cause I'm currently re-reading Dune, which is the greatest sci-fi book ever written, IMHO. Having lived in a desert my whole life I can totally relate with the culture of water that this book describes and, heck, sometimes I've even realized how much "water" we waste.

I found these books in Aug 2007 ... I've read all four and have loved each of them. Very sad that the series is over at 4.

Everyone I know was talking about these books this summer and I thought I wouldn't like them because of the vampires. I finally caved the beginning of last week and now I am on book 3. I am totally hooked. I love that they are clean, also. It is a great story and I will be sad when it ends. Can't wait for the movie.
