Twilight takes me back

books, Pop Culture, writing

I resisted all the hype and hoopla … until Sunday when I picked up Twilight. I finished today (Tuesday) sitting in the parking lot of Books-a-Million, and immediately after, I walked inside and bought New Moon. Yes, watching the movie is on my list of things to do. I think I need to watch it alone, though, to take in the glory that is Robert Pattinson. Thanks to the trailers that I watched just a few minutes ago, I’m sure he’ll live up to my expectations.
Although the writing isn’t the greatest, it’s the story that drew me in and kept me turning pages until 3:30 this morning, when I realized I had a knot in my stomach and that the wind was rattling the bedroom windows. I knew I better stop reading or I’d scare myself silly. I need to read the next book during the day or at least make sure Ryan is still awake.

Even at 37, I could relate to the love story … I remembered feeling that way about a boy back in high school. Giddy and nervous when I was around him. Disappointed if he wasn’t at school. Even though we never got together, the tension was there and I remember it well. But as far as I know, he wasn’t a vampire. 😉

The story is every high school girl’s fantasy: the boy who loves you more than life itself.

  1. So glad you came over to the dark side! Whenever you want to watch the movie, I can bring either my two disc Borders exclusive or my three disc Target edition, and we can be all gaga over beautiful, BEAUTIFUL Robert Pattinson!(Psst…Jackson Rathbone, the guy who plays Jasper, is really beautiful, too)Seriously! Call me, and I will bring it!
