Glued I tell ya, Glued.

Some of you have commented on my absence... and most of you know exactly where I was.

Glued to the book Twilight.

I picked it up Sunday and stayed up until 330am to finish it.

Yes, all 500 pages of it in one night.

Yesterday I was so thirsty (ha ha ha) for more, that I ran out to Target and bought the second one New Moon.

And I didn't come unglued from that one until 400pm today.

Needless to say, I loved both books (the first more than the second).

Needless to say, I'm DYING for my friend Karen to mail me the remaining two books of the series.

I haven't had this much appreciation and desire for a book since I read Gone With the Wind twelve years ago. Sure, I've read a million or more books since then and yes, I've loved many of them. But these books are HAUNTING me. Literally! I think about them all the time, I'm googling them, I'm watching the movie trailers.

I feel like I'm 10 years ago again obsessed with the NKOTB, but it's with books this time.

And maybe I'm a tad bit embarrassed about it, maybe, b/c it's a kids book. This is not a classic book. This is not Shakespeare or Austin. This is a kids book!

Hm....

Maybe I've just lost my mind?

Or maybe Stephenie Meyers is simply a genius?

Your opinion, please.

I'm so with you! I was just having this conversation with friends last night. I was telling them that it was like an obsession, it's not that I wanted to read them and finish them, it's that I HAD to read them and finish them. I can only explain it to other Twilight fans . . . others just don't get it! I'm half way through the fourth book . . . it gets really good! Promise!

Enjoy your time without Twilight and go do some laundry or go outside and smell the fresh air, once those books arrive at your doorstep you know you're gonna be glued to them!

So happy you're enjoying them!!!! :-)

I picked it up yesterday, and while they are an easy read, I'm not yet to the obsession part. She just found out the story from Jacob though, and it is picking up.
