Breaking Dawn

Ok, let me just tell you now. I'm a little obsessed. Between reading these books in a matter of hours from breaking the binding to watching every preview, trailer, interview for the new twilight movie (yikes, i know), you could say I'm a bit of an enthusiast, even a twilight aficionado. These books all though juvenile and completely lame in there own right are captivating and appeal to the deepest corners of my sappy sensitive female heart which I try to ignore the existence of frequently. How could books about vampires appeal to such feelings? Bella and Edward. I cannot resist the passion, love, intrigue, anxiety, drama, taboo (I could go on)...everything about this relationship. This is why I love reading. Each part can speak to you in a different way than to someone else or even than the writer had intended. My imagination runs rampant as I'm caught up in Bella's emotions. Every time I'm done reading I find myself looking to my relationship excited to reignite our passion and romance. The suspense is riveting and you find yourself amazingly enough caring for and even envying the life of a vampire. (well more so in book 4 as I find myself wanting to go running through the forest on hunting trips with them) Anyway, I'm completely getting carried away. Book one has to be my favorite, book two pales in comparison mostly I'm sure due to the fact it's all about Jacob...yuck, book three is a close second for favorite, and book four I have to say surprised me. I can't say that books can often do that to me. I typically speculate and then wish that I hadn't when I spoil the ending for myself. Although this book took me the longest to get involved in (because honestly I thought the plot, at least for a while was pretty lame) it continued to catch me off guard with the direction it took and pleased me in the end. I'm a bit abashed by my enthusiasm and the small sad emptiness I felt when I finished! Stephanie, write more! But I'm declaring it loud and proud despite the smirk and chagrin on my husbands face I'm sure (although I'm convinced if he read them he'd like them...which he secretly knows...whiiich is why he wont). So in case he fails me, I'm taking sign ups to be my date on December 12th for the twilight movie! Ok, I think I'm done and it's out of my system. I hope you can all still be friends with me. By the way, did you guys love the host or what?

I totally agree! For some reason, anytime I'm reading the books I feel like my love for Ogg has been rejuvenated! And Ogg totally won't read the books BUT I've made him promise to at least go see the first movie with me so he can SEE what I'm reading about! Plus, there's meant to be a lot of action in the movie so it can't be THAT bad for him right? I mean, if he can watch the Notebook without gagging, he can do Twilight!

I like the books too! Breaking Dawn was SO different than I expected! I'm not sure I want to see the movie, though, because I'm always really skeptical on movies based on books...

Well Sarah, I just finished reading the 4th book (after re-reading the first 3 just to make sure I remembered everything) and LOVED it of course. I try not to be too obsessive about it all but I totally fall for the sappy love stuff like you! Ha! And I totally think Brett would like the books too if I could only get him to read them! If I were up in Utah, I would sign up to be your date in Decemeber! I will be going to the movie opening night - wooh!
