The Twilight Series

So I got hooked on the Twilight series. It was right around Christmastime. I had heard so much about this book, I thought, I am just going to have to read it. I finished the first book in a couple days and thought I must have the next. Well they were sold out! Everywhere! It was during the snowstorm we had here. I made Steve drive me into town to Barnes and Noble but they CLOSED because of the weather. I couldn't believe it, I was actually mad and wanted to pound on the windows because I SAW there were people in there. All I wanted was one measly little book! So then we headed into the mall and hit the little bookstore in there. I couldn't find it anywhere. I asked the employee there and she said to take a look in the JUNIOR/TEEN section. "OOHH, I see...a teenage romance novel. Yeah, cuz my niece, yeah that's right, my niece really wants it for Christmas." Hmm, so I am reading a teen book. Oh well. I ended up ordering New Moon and Eclipse online and had to wait. As soon as I got them I completely ignored my family for days while I devoured them. I am finishing up Breaking Dawn now. I have to say Twilight and Breaking Dawn are my favorites. The other 2 middle books are pretty good still. Now I really want to see the movie! I know it wont be as good as the books. So if you had read the books, who would you choose?? Edward or Jacob? I cant decide, I like them both.

On a side note, we decided on Disneyland!! Yeah!! I am going to try to keep in a secret from the kids, I don't know how long that will last since I get too excited. Don't ask about the airplane ride, I haven't figured out how they are going to get me on yet. I am trying not to think about it. Medication may have to be involved again. We are getting a sweet deal on the tickets thanks to a friend and I have a lot of unused airline miles...imagine that. So the expense of 6 people wont be too bad!

And for the picture lovers, here are some amazing photo's from Vanity Fair magazine. I love them! www.vanityfair.com/culture/features/2008/12/twilight_outtakes200812

I hope that works. Beautiful pictures.

Ooh! Loved the pictures. I just finished the third book last night. Madison is almost done with the last book. We are hooked! I did the same thing as you trying to find the second book. Everywhere we went they were sold out! Of course now you can buy the whole set at Costco for under $45.00! Glad you are going to Disney. How fun!

Um, thanks a lot. I just lost an hour of my life looking through pictures of Robert (Edward). What can I say about the movie? He has that sexy smoldering look down pat. *sigh*
