Ahh, were to begin...
I Adore the books... adore.. is that the right word? Addicted is more like it. The Twilight series is awesome, better than awesome to me. I have to say I believe that Meyers has become my favorite author.
I was in walmart looking at the books, I have been to barnes and nobles too. I was looking for a book to read and happened to see Meyer's on the end cap. I picked up breaking dawn and was reading the back when a complete strangler walked up to me and sayd "OMG you HAVE to get the series, if you haven't read it yet, start with twilight." These kinds of things I take seriously, I pick up Twilight, go to the register and purchased it.
A day later (work got in the way) I'm at walmart again with the remaining books. I was in the world of Twilight for four days, I finish ALL books in that series. I even read during work haha. (didn't have much to do anyways...) I found that I couldn't put these books down. Some of my friends at work have read the series and I was joking with them about Meyer's lacing some of drug to the pages to make me soooo addicted. (JOKE!!! NOTHING MORE!!!)
When I finished Breaking dawn it was Sunday 12am. I was up till 2am THINKING about the book and sighing my head off, I was my own edward hahaha. (shh, don't tell my husband!)
I honestly couldn't find anything I didn't like about it. My husband thought I was nuts, I always had this goofy grin on my face reading it. Sometimes I just start laughing and that was it. Poor guy, he got NO attention those four days. Monday rolled around I was at work, I didn't want to work, I was thinking about the books and nothing more. I found I wanted more... I got on Meyer's website to find just that. I read all the quotes, I read all the extras, I even read all the stuff she took out. I still wanted more.
Addicted? I was beyond all help.
Then I found the draft to Edwards twilight. Let's just say my monday was booked. I finished that monday night at around 10.30pm.
I enjoyed THAT a great deal, it was GREAT, I laughed, a vampire JEALOUS, I would call my husband in there to read to him. He thought I'd gone insane. I was slapping my pillow when I was at the part that he uprooted the trees and broke them when Mike was messing with Bella's hair. This was just so amazing!! I enjoyed hearing Edwards side of the story, it fit! I was so amazed at how perfect I saw it fit!
After reading it, I wanted MORE. Ugh, will this ever end?!?! So here I am, tuesday morning, reading twilight AGAIN!
My husband finally got to talk to me lol.. he asked me if Meyer's was my favorite author and I said "yes". Not only does she know her own stories but she can tell them! I couldn't find any holes in the characters. You know how it is? You read them, you look for differences, I found none. Edward was edward through the whole thing, so was bella. It was the same for ALL of them. It was GREAT. I laughed during the time she had just became a new vampire when everyone was laughing at them. Of course they'd never forget the clumsy bella.
I'm going to watch the movie of course. I'm a little scepical though. I don't think they will do a good job, who ever does? I will be constantly comparing the books that I love to the movie. I will have to remeber that in books you can use your imagination, but a movie, well.. you see what is going on. Bella is an actor, so you can't use your imagination (or replace yourself with her..).
I hope that Stephanie Meyer's reads these. I know she's probably VERY busy but, keep writing, I love them. I hated for the story to end but I can understand that the story has been told, it's time to move on. It ended the way I wanted, there was love, everyone ended up getting their happily ever after. I was all warm and fuzzy when Jacob got his. Poor thing...
One more thing I wanted to talk about before hitting the post button. I can relate to Bella, it almost seems to me like Stephanie has told us a little about herself as well...she told it so well... I had a best friend I fell in love with, but I also loved another man. Just like Bella, I had to make a choice. But in real life, my best friend didn't get to imprint on another woman, no, he's still in love with me and we don't talk at all. No happy ending there. *sighs* Yes I can relate to Bella, during this time with Jacob I was crying and wanting to hug her and say "yes, I understand." Another thing I can relate to is that, when this best friend and I did agree it would be better to just go our seperate ways, it took me 2 years to get over that love I had for him. (he kept coming back like edward did and I kept saying "okay lets just be FRIENDS") I remember how I was back then, just like Bella, alive but not alive. I went through the motions of it. Now to this day, I think about him, wonder what he's doing. If he's got a gf, yes I'd be jealous.
GREAT JOB STEPHANIE!!
Edit: I have read the twilight saga (all books of course) 2 times and midnight sun (edward's twilight) 2 times also. MIGHT be working on a third!
