"Bitten"


I have not blogged for a while... but, to be honest, I have not cooked, cleaned, remembered to do anything useful or been of use to any of my family members for the 4 weeks before my parents visited... and "Why?", you ask... because I have been 'bitten' by the "Twilight" Series books by BYU graduate Stephenie Meyer!

A family recently moved here from America and they just happened to have the first three books in the "Twilight" series. So, I casually borrowed the first one on Friday - Saturday was busy and I didn't get to open it... but, it was a story about vampires so really, I wondered how good it could be? Then, after a full Saturday I opened the book and read from 8pm to 3am Sunday morning! HOLY COW! I found myself in love, enthralled and enjoying the story! After church Sunday I read the entire book, AGAIN! (Seriously, my husband thought I was a bit insane; he didn't get a 'real' dinner on Sunday!) Then, on Monday I reread my favorite parts in between housework, appts., etc.

Yes, I was officially hooked! I read "New Moon" and "Eclipse" on our family trip to San Antonio (twice each) and then finished "Breaking Dawn" for the 3rd time the other day! I have thoroughly enjoyed the books and look forward to seeing the 'Twilight' movie it comes out!

In an interview with one of the actor's portraying a member of the Cullen family on the film set it was stated, "The message is clear, you can choose morality or death!" I love that this is an interpersonal story on love and what it truly can be like... plus, I love the fact that the main female character longs for eternity with her true love! It makes me grateful that I truly have, "FOREVER"!

Hello!! I came across you on someone elses blog. What a great experience all of you are having. I think we all have been "bitten". Bailee just finished and Karlee is on the last book.

Welcome to the obsession! I have read books one to three at least three times! I read Breaking Dawn as soon as it came out, but I haven't had a chance to re-read it. (Dallin is a bit high maintenance right now) David is TOTALLY hooked too, and we both had to have our own copies of Breaking Dawn so we could read at the same time! Maybe Jimmy would love the books too . . . :)

Came home and this month's book discussion is on the series! Guess I'll have to get started on it! Vampires, werewolves and Bella, oh my!

I loved these books too! They were very fun to read. If you haven't read Meyer's "Host" then you need to. I think it was better than the Twilight series.
