The Twlight Series----My New Obsession

My New Obsession

So, I recently began reading the Twilight series of books written by Stephenie Meyer and I must say they are my new obsession. I came across these books by mistake but am so glad I found them. A friend of mine had told me about them and said that I must read them, but being a stay at home mom with little free time on my hands I knew it would be hard to find some time to read, especially read and enjoy a book. So I forgot about the books. Then as I was lurking on myspace I found that many pages had a certain You-Tube video and I became curious. I watched the video, after seeing it on several pages, and found that the first book-Twilight- was being turned into a movie, due out this December. I love movies so I thought I must read this book now. So I ordered it online for about 13 dollars, later finding out it is only 8 dollars at Walmart, and didn't get it for about a week. When the book arrived, I set it aside and did not begin it until the next morning. I must say, when I started this book, I did not put it down until I HAD to go to the bathroom, eat or feed a child. No laundry, household chores, cooking was done until I finished that book. Which was only 2 days because I read it so fast!

It was spell-bounding. It cast its spell on me and I could not let it go. I immediately bought the next two books---New Moon and Eclipse--and read them in two days each as well. I was captivated by the characters and their decisions. I couldn't think of real life, thinking of only what these characters meant and what would happen next. I dreamed of them, lived my life in a haze for a while until I came out of the fog.

For those of you who don't know the book Twilight, is about a young girl, Bella Swan, who goes to live with her father, in a small town called Forks, in Washington State. Bella does not want to be there and assumes the worst, but she soon becomes intrigued by the Cullen Family, who has secrets that no one knows. This is truly a thrilling book and I cannot wait until the movie comes out. I did find out however that the books are for teenagers, which I could not tell in the writing, I am twenty seven and have been married for 9 years but this book really got my blood boiling and made me remember how much I loved my hubby when he was just a boy. That stirring feeling of anticipation and it felt wonderful!

So check this book out if you haven't already! I definitely recommend it!

Don't remember if I was the one that told you about these or not, but they're FABULOUS!! Breaking Dawn comes out August 2nd! Check out her website at StephanieMeyer.com. She's got excerpts from the books and also a bood called Midnight Sun (i think thats right) that is Twilight from Edwards perspective. She recently release her first Adult novel called The Host. I'm about halfway thru it and its very, very good.
