Uh Oh...

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! :)


  1. welcome to the club!!! I have the next 2 waiting for you!

  2. Yay!!! Make sure you have the next books ready; you will not be able to live without them!

  3. Haha! Welcome to the Twlight-obsessed club! I read them April of last year, and I was hooked. But I've toned down the obsession now. Beware, they get their hooks into you! =] Let me know what you think! xoxo, Hayley

  4. You have no idea how obsessed Hayley is! She has plastered her walls with twilight stuff! The movie wasn't even very good, but she loves it because of Edward, who isn't even very hot!!! But I do admit the books are really good.


  5. Oh I have no doubt you will be a "Twihard" in NO time! Its been 7 months since I read the series the first time, and I've had to hide the books so I can try to read something else 8-)
