Twilight


I don't know when people started going all crazy about Twilight, but I never really fell for the whole Twilight thing. I never felt the urge to rush out and buy the books or watch the shows or search for any of the photos of the Twilight cast. I simply shook my head each time I read about people going crazy about Twilight, starting forum topics about it, discussing it at length and smiled. After all I much rather prefer the cozy little world of Gilmore Girls. Now that's a show I could just watch over and over - Gilmore Girls.

But anyway, on the weekend we went to the library and as I walked past the one display on the way to the children's side to look after the kids while Terence searched for books for himself, my eye caught a copy of a Twilight book, sitting right there screaming out at me. I walked past thinking that I don't particularly cared for it, but then stopped thinking "hmmm, it is such a popular book and there it is sitting on the display stand begging to be read, I may as well borrow it to see what all the fuss is about", so I took it. When I wanted to check it out, it wouldn't let me. Went to the librarian who confirmed it was put on the display by mistake as it is actually reserved for somebody else and she wanted to know if I wanted to reserve it too. I accepted and she put my name on the list.

And yesterday the email arrived to say that the book is all ready for my collection. So now I sit with the book at home, started reading it, and now I guess I'll be able to see what the fuss is all about. Terence told me I'm only allowed to borrow the book if I promise not to get addicted to it :-). Hmmm, what do you think? New addiction or not?

Yes, new addiction.
I went to the movie with my 15 year old daughter and thought it would be a shocker (but secretly hoped it would give me time to snooze). I was wrong and couldn't take my eyes off the screen. Pretty embarrassing really - an older mum who is into vampires LOL

The Twilight bug hasn't grabbed me BUT I am a HUGE vampire fan and I'm totally addicted to the TV series True Blood. Its a darker, more adult version of Twilight! The second season just started here now and I have spent the last couple of weeks watching all the episodes from season 1 to make sure I'm well and truly up to speed with what's happening!!! ;-)

I took my 16 year old daughter to see the midnight showing. I didn't think I would like it. Amazingly I loved the movie. I already purchased our movie tickets for the New Moon Movie. I can't wait to find out if you become an Edward fan or Jacob fan.

Hi! Read all 4 books and watched the the first movie installment. I am eagerly awaiting New Moon just to see how it compares to the book. Enjoy your collection! :-)
