When you can live forever, what do you live for?

I have never ventured into a book about Vampires but let me tell you, I am beyond hooked on this one. It they are all this good, then I have been missing out.
Stephenie Meyer had a dream one night and, of that dream came 4 books about Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. It was originally intended for 14 year olds but it has truly become a phenomenon. Introduced to it by my 16 year old niece, Mega, I have to say I am quite hooked. More so than I have been on any other series. It is 4 books long (Twilight, Eclipse, New Moon, Breaking Dawn) and each one gets thicker as you read, ranging from about 600 pages to 900 pages. I read them in 8 days. I would have finished sooner but leave it to work and other obligations to get in the way. I love the characters involved and have to admit to be totally crushing on Edward. At first I thought it weird and wrong to be totally crushing on a 17 year old character but, technically, he is a 108 year old in a 17 year olds body so, technically, he just looks good for his age. (that's my story and I am sticking to it) If you haven't read these books, I highly recommend them. If you haven't heard of Twilight ... where have you been, my friends?
Tomorrow night I will be seeing the movie version of Twilight with Megan. There is a midnight showing of it at Silvercity however, my responsible niece has informed me that she has a major project due Friday so it wouldnt be wise to go to a movie that late. I am left to hide my disappointment and raise my pride above it for her mature decision. Good girl, my apple. I know if it were me, I would have gone! If I had someone to go with tonight, I would have seen it tonight and tomorrow but alas, I have to wait patiently until 6:45 tomorrow where, popcorn and drink in hand, I will watch as the book unfolds in front of me and hope that it lives up to everyones expectations.

I am so hooked on those books too! Crazy - they aren't my typical reading material - I don't like romance novels, and I don't like vampires, and I am obviously so not a teenager... But I kept hearing about them, so I bit {heehee}...and I love them, couldn't put them down.

I'm going to have to check out the movie soon too!
