Yes, I'd jump of that cliff...

Since everybody else was doing it, I finally joined the bandwagon and read "Twilight". I almost hate myself for giving in. I told myself so many times I wasn't going to read it since it was the in thing to do. I don't like to follow the crowd. But, I was at Wal-mart and it was only like $7.68 and I was going to be on a plane and thought I could read it. This of course was a month ago. I didn't end up reading it on the plane. However this past week Josh was out of town and I decided to read it in my lonely bed.
First of all, I had to go back to many other blogs and read others reviews since they now make sense to me.
My opinion, the middle of the book was like woman porn, the way she was so descriptive about Edward and the encounters between him and Bella and the way he touched her. OMG. I fell in love with him. I wanted him to bite me. It was intense! The end bugged me. It totally went back to some stupid teeny bobber novel. Oh how sweet, he took her to their prom. Or how gay. It should have ended with her at the hospital all better. It didn't need to take that cheesy turn at the end. I don't think there is anybody on the planet who hasn't read it so I don't feel like I'm spoiling it.
I finished the book in 2 days so it couldn't have been all bad. I would claim my son was neglected on Friday but I think he felt like he saw more of me. I would sit in his playroom and read instead of cleaning, doing dishes, laundry .....
Josh and I are about to sit down and watch the movie, and I'm sure I'll have alot to say about then. Till then...

I had mostly decided to not read it so I haven't yet, but sometimes I think about it. Anyway, we watched the movie last night in the cheap seats too. I'll be interested to hear your review/comparison to the book.

I just spend the last 2 weeks in hibernation reading all 4 books. I held out as well, but I must say I'm totally in love with them (especially Edward!). I want you to read the other 3 now so we can chat and compare notes.

I bought the movie yesterday and watched it for the 1st time...hmmm...still forming an opinion on that, but it definately misses some of the excellent detail the book has.
