So everyone has been going gaga over these silly vampire books. Now, I love trashy reading as much as the next person, but I was determined not to cave. Not when my teenage cousin told me I had to read it cause it is, like, the best book ever, and that guy is so hot. Not when all of my ADULT friends with fabulous taste (generally speaking) jumped on the bandwagon. I shall overcome.
And like just about everything else I ever said in my life I wouldn't do, I bought the book. Just the first one, and only because it was on sale and I needed something totally indulgent to read over spring break. And because I am feeling really left out of the hype and I like to be "in the know."
But I WILL NOT be one of those people who are coming into work in the morning with bloodshot eyes, a reading hangover with all of the tell-tale signs. However....I have only started reading it yesterday, and I am already a good ways through the book. And I will probably want to watch the movie after reading the book, but only to compare literature/cinema versions. Possibly I will want to read the next in the series if I have time over spring break. Because, after all, who doesn't want to be swept back to her sultry teenage years full of rainy northwestern small town life filled with hotty vampire love? I know it will take me back...I can relate.
Are you a reader (or will you admit it?) Do you get the hype? Even more importantly...do you have the next book?
