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!
Maybe I've just lost my mind?
Or maybe Stephenie Meyers is simply a genius?
Your opinion, please.
