Sucked in

I got sucked into the Twilight series.
I've been contemplating reading them for a while, since I am such a scaredy pants I've put if off for over a year, but at the recommendations of plenty of friends, I figured I would check it out, just to see what all of the rage is about. So for the past 3 and a half days I've been reading (along with holding a sick child, yet again), and reading. I am going to get the next book in a few days. Right Erin? Casey? Kim? Somebody?

My Twilight thoughts: Definitely a plot I would have never, could have never, come up with. Ever. Makes you wonder if the person you're sitting next to at the airport is human or not. Edward was intriguing. I am infatuated with his whole intrigue with Bella. I'm not sure if I was reading too fast, but I thought the end of Twilight was a little abrupt. I wish, there was a scene with James and Edward and another with Bella and Charlie. But still, I am interested to see what transpires in New Moon.

The Cullen's way of living, in some sort of twisted way reminded me of being a Christian. Putting off what is easy and what you desire for fun for the good of something bigger. Am I the only one who felt like that?
But, its official, I'm a fan. Now I need to get Netflix or something to see the movie.

I'm not sure if I would read them. I am more into Nicolas Sparks books. I have been thinking about seeing the movies.

LOL. I read them all over the summer and was infatuated as well!! I have all the books if you need one.

I read all 4 books within 2 weeks. I LOVED them and was so sad to not have another one to read. I thought books 1 & 4 were the best :)

I read all four in 2 weeks too. Brad said I neglected my family. He laughed at me all the time. I stayed up every night reading into the wee hours. I could not put them down. Love it! Love it! Love it! On the last book I had about 50 pages left and was dying to finish to see how it was all going to end so I sent Brad out on a walk with the kids. I still go back and read some of my favorite parts. I'm such a loser. Oh well!

Here I was worried about you! :)
"Sucked in" is a perfect title. Wonderful books (#1 my favorite) --mediocre movie. Edward rocks. Grin.

I am still not on the Twilight train. I don't know why b/c I usually jump into things that everyone loves. Glad you're enjoying it.

PS: Loving the new blog look w/ the 3 columns and all.

I totally was skeptical of reading them...if you asked me if I would like to read about a vampire high school love story, I'd think you were crazy, but like you I got sucked in and became an instant fan!
Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment!!! We would love to see you guys soon!
