I resisted these books completely. I really wasn't even drawn towards the idea of reading them. A teenage romance? About vampires? Not my style. I even saw some blogs that said that they didn't get the hype and didn't like the books. So, yeah, it was an easy thing to resist.
And then Em and I went on our girls only shopping trip yesterday and I was looking for something to splurge on. And Em went running towards the display that had all 4 in the series - begging me to buy them. Seems her friends have read them and told her they were better than Harry Potter. Hmmmm....
I was still totally resisting. It was still teenage romance and vampires. Blech.
And then I read the back cover of Twilight. And almost without thinking, I opened it up and started reading. And right there in the aisles of Target, I was totally swept away. I've spent the past 24 hours reading - barely remembering to feed the kids or that we had plans for this weekend. The first two books are done and I'm taking a quick break before cracking open the third. Totally, totally swept away by this series. So, if you're pondering.......yes, they are that good. :)
And, because I always love some good enabling, they are all on sale at Target right now. I got all 4 books - 2 paperback and 2 hardback - for under $40. :)
Oh, and yes, I totally could have gone to the library, but I'm weird about my books. Some I'm okay to borrow, but ones that I really like, I neeeeeeeed to own. tee hee
