I openly confess that I did it. I gave into my yearning for a good read and started reading Twilight last Wednesday. During this time I was also frantically kitting for my upcoming classes but in the back of my head, I was beckoned to the book each night. I lay there reading and literally feeling my body tense at moments as the content became more and more climactic. I know, this is not exactly the reaction you would expect from a newly 30 year old (so much for these being my mature years!) but with so much praise from my friends about the series, I just couldn't resist. Now I am not trying to "justify" my decision... but, in it's defense, Twilight is not exactly what I would expect from a YA book, actually I found it to be a little bit of the good and the bad. The writing, well at times I was lost and bored, but altogether I understood it, and the writer added details that my brain needed (constantly spoil plots in my head, jumping the gun and estimating outcomes) to catch me off guard.
So now, I am in search of book 3, I have borrowed the last two from my sister in law but with the vast following she has encouraged to read the books, I am sure that her copy is most likely occupied.
Well that means a quick trip to Target tomorrow to happily give them $8 to quench my need for a good read.
So did you think I would do it? well hopefully I haven't lost any friends over it, but all together even to the skeptics, think about reading it... you may change your mind.
