I've been somewhat detached from anywhere or anything that doesn't involve me curled up on my sofa or in my bed with a Twilight novel ever since Sunday.
Don't worry though, I'm only mildly obsessed.
I finished Twilight and New Moon in less than 3 days, that's only slightly over 1,100 pages though.
I watched the movie last night. Twice. Once with the commentary on and was surprised at Rob Pattinson's English accent, which actually makes him even more intoxicating!
I'm so glad that last week was crammed with tests and projects because that gives me plenty of time to drool over Edward and Bella's twisted romance. I'm obviously a late bloomer to the whole Twilight phenomenon and I seriously can't believe that I've missed out on it for so long. I'm always amazed that a book, simply bound pages of printed paper, can come to life with such passion, horror, humor, and intrigue once I read it. It comes to life. I'm actually in awe of this, and often wonder what amazing journeys and experiences I'm missing out on that are bound in those books I never find time to read. I used to be an avid reader and I really do love it, the Twilight Saga has really rekindled that love for me too. I realize that I've seriously missed the feeling of letting my emotions and my imagination take me away with a good book.
I've gone through all the emotions too. Adrenaline during the passionate kissing scenes, horror through the dangerous vampire adventures, sadness during Book 2 at the heartbreak I felt so much a part of, and of course happiness and humor throughout the cheerful scenes. I've laughed, cringed with fear, and cried throughout it all.
I can't wait to see the outcome of Bella and Edward's romance, guess I'll have to get to working on book 3 tonight!
Even though the movie does no justice to the passion present in the book, I still love it. You can bet I'll be one of the crazies waiting out in line at midnight on November 27th to see "New Moon". I already can't wait!
Thanks to all who recommended the books, of course, I love them! They are amazing!
For anyone who hasn't yet become obsessEd like me, I urge you get to your nearest Barnes and Noble. Click over to amazon.com, and get the books. You won't be sorry. I promise.
I'll leave you with a bit of eye candy ;) One of my favorite scenes...
