    Twilight - A literary guilty pleasure

    I just finished a book called Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. It was her first book and although it started out poorly written, it evolved into something magnificent.

    If you read the synopsis, it sounds like one of those terrible ridiculous teenage books that are all written the same and have proposterous plot lines that make you want to throw up.

    But it isn't.

    500 and something pages and I made it through in two days. It's not that the writing is so advanced, rather that the author pulls you so deeply into the story that it's impossible not to experience the emotions of all of the characters. I don't think I've ever been so involved in a story.

    Afterwards, I was emotionally drained and unresponsive/antisocial because it somehow took so much out of me. You will find yourself wanting desperately to go back into that world.

    I felt the exact same way. For days i could not concentrate on any one thing in particular as i was hoping if i closed my eyes and wished enough, i could find my self in rainy forks oregon looking into the dangerously seductive eyes of Edward and falling faster and faster into the liquid velvety softness of his voice, i could also relate to the character bella in so many ways, shes shy, a new kid, and has a taste for the dangerous side of life. she wants to live on the edge and be with the one person that could destroy her. It took all i could to pull myself away.

    I also agree with everything you said! I reread both Twighlight and New Moon so many times. I read them about six times each in one week-the second I ended I restarted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree! I read them both about 5 times, and I thought I would hate them at first (my cousin got them for me for christmas) but I read Twilight on a plane trip (we were going to Bermuda) and instantly fell in love...

    I think eclipse is the best book so far in the series with twilight running a close second.... But New Moon has too much Jacob-Bella times in it!

    "I'll catch you," he replied.

    Yeah. I've read it. And New Moon. And most of Eclipse. I'm good for discussion. PM me. I don't really know how to talk about it without spoilers.

    As to Edward. I honestly like Jakob better at this point. Edwards cool, but he's honestly a pain sometimes.

    I have't met him yet. I'm just now to the part where they're looking at the cross Charlise's father carved.

    Yay! someone elese agrees with me!

    Edwards is so annoying in the book something, but Jacob's character is so much more interesting.

    I won't say anything else, since I don't want to spoil the book for you but........

    THEY'RE MAKING A MOVIE ABOUT IT! *[insert ear-splitting, girlish squeal here]*

    I love Edward too. But Jaccob. (I listened to the books, so I don't know the spelling, *blush*) is soooo awesome. Plus, he's warm. One of my friends made a joke about how you'd want Edward in the summer and Jacob in the winter.

    And Baki! YESH! THE MOVIE! EEE! =D
