I caved...

Ok, so I FINALLY gave in and picked up Twilight...BIG MISTAKE!! Since Saturday afternoon, I have gotten absolutely nothing accomplished and thought about nothing else beyond the characters in these books. I've been hesitant to pick up the first book because I knew this would happen. On Monday, I called a million (ok, like 3) different stores to find availability and pricing on New Moon, but that was the one book that NOBODY had. I have never made so many trips to different stores just for a book, on a whim I decided to stop at Seagull Books (never go there), they didn't have it at that store, but they did have 2 left over in East Bay...yay!! So I went totally out of my way to get the second and third books, soooo pathetic, but I just couldn't imagine waiting ONE MORE DAY! It was so worth it, and I was NOT disappointed, although I am now! I just finished the third book and now I have to wait like a year for the next one, I should have just waited til then to read them. Oh well.

WARNING!! If you have not read these books and are planning on reading them, read no further, major spoilers will follow!! Or, if you are a guy or a girl who hates pathetic love stories, again, read no further! But if you have read them, and are all about romance, then please join me in my pathetic-ness!!

I just have to say though...wow! Could Edward be any more perfect? I have to admit that occasionally, I don't know what he sees in Bella, she can be kind of retarded sometimes, although I guess she is only 17, well, 18 I guess. Also...ok, so I finished the first book, of course totally in love with Edward. I had heard something about a werewolf and figured that it would be Jacob who would take that role, and that there might be some kind of love triangle, and I just remember thinking, yeah right, like anyone could compare to Edward. But I have to say, that the author did a very good job of making Jacob very loveable as well (probably because Edward was no where to be heard from for the majority of the book). But I have to admit that at the end of book 2, I was rooting for Jacob, and I was a little sad about it. But I was not disappointed in book 3. Edward DEFINATELY redeems himself for being a jerk-o, and you really just can't ignore a perfect man like that. I guess though, when you have had 80 years to work on it, you'd BETTER be pretty darn perfect! But...sadness for Jacob! My heart does ache for him!

So, is it so pathetic that I totally analyze how I feel about everything and everyone in these books? I think I am really just sad that I don't have anymore to read and so I feel the need to talk about it with people who understand! ;) The good thing is, it will have been long enough when the 4th book comes out that I won't feel totally lame about reading all 3 books again before it comes out (Nate will NOT be happy about that! I tend to get a little consumed!). Something to look forward to! Ha, JK, I do have a life, that I WILL get back to... just not right this second! :) Oh, and is the 4th book the last book? Anyone know?

Yay I am so glad that you got hooked too..that just means that i am once again not the only one!! I am totally sad that we have to wait another year but I guess I will just have to practice patience!! I am definately an EDWARD fan and am sorry for those who like Jacob. I am just all about TRUE love instead of reality. I just can't wait to find out how it all ends! Only one more book to go. Yes, there are only 4 books!!

just in case it wasn't clear enough from my post, I am definately an Edward fan as well. But one cannot help but like Jacob. As much as it makes me sad for him, I cannot IMAGINE how sad I would feel for Edward!

Morg you're such a dork. I just finished reading the second one and I don't know if I can bear another one. I think this is just a bad time for me to be reading love stories. Haha but I'm glad you liked them. I had no reason to believe you wouldn't.

Morgan, i just started these books a few weeks ago and did the same thing (I even blogged about it too!). I was totally addicted and I think about the characters all the time. Have you been to her website? www.stepheniemeyer.com
They're making a movie of Twilight and she put pictures of actors of who she would like to play the different roles. Also, fans put their preferences too...its fun to check out. I cannot wait for #4. I will probably re-read all of them a few times before #4 comes out!
