UPDATE: Brad read this and said I failed to describe how I am keeping him up late at night while I read these books. Sigh. Edward would never complain about such a thing.
I've been bitten. By a book series for teenagers. It's really pathetic. You know, I had heard of the Twilight book series a long time ago and wrote it off, even telling a friend, nah I don't think those are for me. Now I hear people say that and I laugh. Oh silly, silly girl.
Clare and I were at TJ Maxx a while back and they had all the books marked down really cheap so we said what the heck, let's give them a read, see what the big deal is. This was around the same time my friend at work Leslie was dragging herself into the office each morning with bags under her eyes because she couldn't bear to put down the books to sleep at night. I even caught her sneaking a read under her desk one day! That is now me. I couldn't even wait patiently for Clare to finish the second book - I had to borrow Leslie's copies and now I'm halfway through the third and plan to also read the unpublished and unfinished version of the first book from the vampire's point of view that's on the author's web site. I can already tell that when I am all finished and there is no more to read that I am going to feel sad. That happened to me with Harry Potter. It was just so disappointing there wasn't going to be any more time with the characters to enjoy! Like a sort of mourning. And the movies are no consolation. I hear the Twilight movie is not so great (and none of the Harry Potters were either) and it's just not the same as being wrapped up in a book.
Sick, sick, sick. But hey, I know when I go into work tomorrow Leslie will be asking me which part I'm on and we can act half our age gushing about all of it. And then send each other a bunch of Twilight related flair on Facebook. Pathetic! Oh well, it's keeping me occupied during the third trimester, so I guess that's something. But I really really need a recommendation for something of a page-turning nature to read after - anyone have any ideas? I've got 11 weeks of pregnancy to kill people and I'm obsessed with a teenage vampire love story. Help me!
