The One with the Twilight Series

Why haven't I blogged in the last couple days? Because EVERY SINGLE SPARE SECOND I had I was readingandand
I have heard about these books before - mostly on my friends' Facebook pages they say this is their favorite series. Then Sarah and Marlene at work always talk about them. Alisha told me about them once upon a time. But I just don't have time to read, and frankly...Vampires, really?

Sarah brought in her copy of Twilight on Friday for me to take home. So, Saturday afternoon, after I finished cleaning all the cages and the apartment, I grabbed the book and sat out on the deck to indulge. And boy did I ever indulge. I literally did not put the book down until I absolutely had to at 6:30pm when we were sitting in the movie theater seats and the lights went out. We saw Iron Man - great movie, I highly recommend it. Then as soon as the lights went back on I was back in business.

I finished Twilight on Sunday morning then had to find someone with the second book so I wouldn't resort to breaking the Sabbath and buying it at Wal-Mart. Luckily my cousin Maren had it so I picked it up and started New Moon. I started at 2pm, took a break to eat lunch at the Warners for a few hours, then I sat on my couch and read from 6pm until I was finished at 11:30pm. I did not get up once those entire five and a half hours. Not to go to the bathroom, not to eat, not to change. There was nothing to distract me from the world's best romantic thriller.

All I have to say is: if Bella doesn't change into a vampire by the end of the 4th book that's coming out in August, I'm going to DIE!

(PS - this is why I have a hard time reading. As soon as I pick up a book, I cannot put it down and other things, more important things, get put on the backburner...)
