What I have Really Been Doing.

For the past two weeks I have been trying to read all four books in the Twilight series. It's the ultimate love story. Girl falls in love with untouchable boy. Boy falls in love with untouchable girl. Oh it's so good. It is written by Stephenie Meyer. I am obsessed with this story. I read the first book in about 3 days. I was really surprised being that it is about 700 pages long. I have never read a book that long before let alone in three days, and then read it's sequel. So, here are what the four book covers look like.
They aren't all that mixed together. But you can buy them all at Wally World or Target. I am on the last book.

I am almost done reading it. It is such an awesome book. I sometimes can't read it fast enough. It's definitely a page turner. I only put the book down because I had to break up World War III that was going down in my living room. My oldest sister had been trying to get me to read this book for the longest time and when she told me it was about love and vampires and warewolves, I was kinda like, "Uhm...yeah...I will read it.....sure....whatever you say dearest sister........". About six months later I finally picked up a copy of Twilight. And I have been hooked since. I even read it aloud to my husband. He loves it too. He will come home from work and ask what is going on with who and what happened while he was at work. Mr. Cowboy gest kinda upset when I read too far ahead because when I tell him what is going on I sometimes leave out some parts. And then there is some really good news. The book Twilight is going to be a movie!! YEAH!! Coming to a theater near you on November 21, 2008. Move over Harry Potter, here comes Twilight, the movie. These are what the characters look like. I think Edward looks kinda cranky in the picture, but he really is not cranky at all. Oh, it's so good. And there are a lot of people who are more obsessed with this book than I am. I have only read them all once. There are some people, like my big sister, who have read these book multiple times. So, if you have some time to kill, or no time at all to kill, I really recommend you read these books. All four of them are very good. I got my sister in law to read them and she loves them too. Now, let me see who else I can get on the band wagon. No peer pressure, I promise, it's just a really fun book to read. Anyway, while the Cowpokes are getting alone I have a book to finish, I am sooo very close to being finished. Happy reading to all.

I've heard about the books, but I haven't had a lot of free reading time lately. Aren't they kind of erotic also?

Harmony said...

Oh no! I've lost another one to that stinkin' Twilight series! I think I'm the only woman alive who didn't fall for them. Not that I judge--I went through this with...well, I'm even too embarrased to say which books.

Happy reading!!! :-)

Amanda, are you a Twilighter? For SHAME, girl! :-) Oh, I'm totally kidding!

Laura said...

Totally, Totally TOTALLY GREAT books!! I love em all, and I'm like you, when I first heard about them: vampires and werewolves? Don't think so. But then someone put a copy in my hand and that was that. You oughta join us chicks over here for movie night when it comes out. Already on the calendar!!

I have a few students who won't put them down, and as an avid reader I think I must now read them as well...

I am SO EXCITED you guys are thinking about Vegas!!!! I booked my flight this evening. They're pretty reasonable right now. We're staying at Mandalay Bay I believe...or rather last I heard. I'll know more tomorrow and will post everything soon.

I'm just ready to have some fun!

I hope you finally got to finish them even after I distracted you for so long on the phone. Just be warned if you haven't, I didn't like the ending. Not enough people die.

Just tripped over from Farm Suite. What a surprise to see a Twilight fan! Me too! I am on Eclipse about half way through.

I do have to say that the guy they picked to play Edward in the movie is not who I would have chosen. What do you think?

The Wades said...

You have me intrigued. I might just have to read one. Now if I only had time...

Glad you're enjoying yourself. :)

Okay, maybe I should go ahead and read them. I was turned off by the thought of the vampire love story too, but if you were too and you like them, I'll have to give it a try.

Wendy said...

I can't believe I haven't heard of these. Am I that out of touch? I am ALL ABOUT vampire love stories.

If you let me borrow them, I promise to get hooked right along with you. ;-)

Did you know there's a new series about a vampire love story. It's even set in north Louisiana. It's called True Blood. I can't remember if it's on HBO or Showtime.

This is the infamous big sis' and I am proud to say that I love the twilight books and FINALLY little sis has been hooked! I still read a part of them every night. If only the scriptures could capture my attention as much as these books do :) As for those who haven't read them, give them a chance. I was not a believer either at first. It was our book snob sis that hooked us all!
