Twilight madness

So I decided to jump on the Twilight band wagon and started reading the other night. I've seen it mentioned on so many blogs lately I wanted to see what it was all about.

I've been planning to read if for a while now but had to finish Harry Potter first. I'm just not that good to have two going at once! I was rereading books 1-6 and then read number 7 for the first time. I still can't believe I waited over a year and a half to read the last book! I think I was Ok with it since I knew it was the last one and was sad to see it end. As I was reading, the more I wanted to read but on the other hand the closer I got to the end the more bummed I got knowing it was the end of the road for the HP story. Maybe someday she could continue on with the story of his kids or something! Wishful thinking? lol

Anyway, my mom bought all four of the Twilight books about a month ago. She started reading the first one and couldn't make it through. I'm still going to try myself and not make a judgement based on her reaction. She can be a pretty tough judge when it comes to books.

I want to get the first one read by the time the movie comes out so I can go see it. So lets see, I'm two chapters in. Twenty two to go and what twenty four days until the movie. It's doable. I'm a slow reader by the way. Not slow as in speed of actually reading the words. Slow as in I only read 20-30 minutes a day. Depending on the day and my mood. So it takes me quite a while to get through a book sometimes. I'm not one to get all wrapped up in a book and read all night. I'll usually end up falling asleep in my book!

I am on the 3rd book. I could have been done by now, but now that I work all day it's hard. I do have issues with getting sleepy or not being in the mood to read.

I'm on the 3rd book as well. book one went fast, two a little slow at the beginning, and 3 is okay. Hannah was the same way with the 7th Harry Potter book. She was reading and reading and then got sad that she was so close to the end. I'm looking forward to the movie, Peter Facinelli is one of the main characters. Yum!

I loved all 4 books in the series! You'll have to let me know what you think once you've finished Twilight...

I have to admit that i've been curious about the Twilight series also. Maybe i'll have to add them to my next Amazon order.

Thanks for visiting on my BAtW day! :)

I'm curious to see what you think of the books.My daughter has read them all twice and has been beggging me to read "Twilight" before we see the movie. I guess in my mind they are geared toward teens but she says they're not.
Let me know what you think!(I'm super slow at reading too,maybe a chapter a day if I'm lucky!lol)

Ha--I wish we all lived together to see the movie together! I have read only this one, with New Moon awaiting when no new TV shows are on during holiday reruns! (Except I do love those little cartoon real life shows like Rudolph..LOL)

I am looking forward to seeing how the movie turns out.

We;'ll have to go the same time and have a cyber chat in Rick chat to discuss! LOL.

And I have never read Harry Potter. I just couldn't get into them--I like the love stories, I suppose. Ha...

Have a great weekend Lynn, and a great time on the cruise!
