I think I'm beginning to understand the allure... the hysterics... of this pop-culture phenomenon that is... Twilight.
I'm only about 5 chapters in, but here are my thoughts so far: Anything that makes the awkward, pale, uncomfortable girl in the story the heroine, is fine by those of us who were awkward in high school (which I'm pretty sure was everyone... even if you were the blonde cheerleader... which I was).
I'm already finding myself drawn to Edward and his perfection, so we will see how it goes. This story keeps making me think of my cousin Hayley though. It could be because she was one of the most obsessed with this series that I've run into, but it could also be that she is the spitting image of Bella and it is comforting to think that my pale, smart, unbalanced (hehe, you KNOW you are!) cousin will find herself an Edward (And I'm also wondering if her new-ishly dark locks are the result of this resemblance). :)
Anyway, so I am, now happily, plowing through this book... and I may just be the next bandwagoner... stay tuned! :)
