I did it...and I loved it!
I finally decided to figure out what this Twilight phenomenon was all about. Colleen had given me a copy of Twilight WAY before it became popular (like last May I think). I started reading it and got to about chapter 8 but I couldn't get past that. I was also reading the Gossip Girl series at the time and dreaming of living in New York so Gossip Girl was winning. I was reading those faster than I could locate them from the library. Anyway, my girls are constantly talking about Edward and Jacob and I'm pretty sick of it, so I decided that I needed to see what all the excitement over these two was all about. Well I read the first one and loved it. Though I'm quite sure that if I were casting for Edward I would have chose someone better looking. The Edward I created in my mind was WAY better looking than the guy who plays him in the movie. I mean, if Bella is so fixated on him he better be the best combination of Ben Afflic, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Chad Micheal Murry, etc. :) Any way the point is the book was good, I'm reading the second in the series and I should have read it earlier. :)
