So, I have been ‘sucked’ in.
I actually purchased ‘Twilight’ about a year ago in the Atlanta airport (I think – it was definitely an airport). I had no idea what it was but the cover caught my eye.
I read about half of it and couldn’t get into it. I realized I had purchased somewhat of a ‘young adult’ book. Blah. I thought it was going to be a bit darker. It was tossed somewhere in my apartment and forgotten.
Shortly thereafter, I heard about ‘Twilight’ everywhere. Thirteen year olds weeping and screaming over what’s his face. Blog posts with lots and lots of exclamation marks elating over the movie. Damn it. I like to be trendy, so I dragged the book back out and finished it.
It definitely picked up. I polished it off somewhere around Christmas.
So finally last night I saw the movie.
I’m hooked. I don’t care if this crap is meant for tweeners. Edward Cullen got to me. Love the scene in the restaurant for some reason – also one of my favorite moments in the book. Apparently, others love it too.
I’m on to ‘New Moon’ next. Should someone in her mid-twenties be entertained by all of this?
