Now I see ...

It took me for-evah, but now I finally get the big deal on the Twilight books ... Oh-Em-Gee!!!

I needed to give myself a bit of a break between watching the movie and sitting down with the book. I tried starting this series immediately after drooling over the big screen, and then again after watching the DVD, but for whatever reason I just couldn't get into the words on paper.

So, I packed my book up and carried it off to the beach this last weekend, determined to give it another shot. Sure enough, I couldn't put the book down!!! In just 2 short days, I read through the entire book!!

I am so excited to start New Moon, but I am a bit concerned. Being I saw Twilight in movie form first, I couldn't be disappointed (like the book fans were) at the out-of-place details that Hollywood added and/or omitted. I can hardly contain myself with the excitement of New Moon coming out in November ... so do I dare continue reading in the series?

7 shout-outs!:

I know what you mean. I wonder about that too. But I was unable to resist temptation, and just went ahead and read the whole series. And I have to say, I LOVE them!

Welcome to the addiction! I definitely think that it's worth it to read New Moon before the movie comes out. I am not a big reader (starting to get more into it), but the whole series was such an easy read and I couldn't wait to get to each book.

I read Twilight on my honeymoon last October and couldn't wait to get my hands on New Moon!

Oh I know what you mean. Now you might want to wait until after the movie comes out to keep reading. I think it's in November, which isn't too bad. But ... will you be able to wait that long to read the third and fourth?

Oh, girl! Welcome to the addiction :) After watching the movie, I read the entire series in a week! Once I started, I couldn't put them down! New Moon was a little slow to me, but Eclipse and Breaking Dawn are FANTASTIC!

I started reading the first book in the beginning of August and just finished the 4th book, and I LOVED the series. I watched the movie the other night and also LOVED it. It's funny because I was so annoyed with all the press it was getting and finally broke down and read it. So glad I did.

I need to start reading these like now. I got Tori Spellings book for the plane ride and I read it before I even left. Whoops.

I think I was the last one on this planet to see Twilight...just over a month ago. And I immediately went out and grabbed the book. I am now close to finishing Breaking Dawn. I couldn't put any of the books down. I would recommend reading them. But that is just my personal though. I can't wait for New Moon to come out!
