Introducing MommaLaura

Postby MommaLaura » Thu Jul 08, 2010 1:09 pm

Hi everyone,
My 'real' name is Laura, probably figured that out, huh? I choose MommaLaura mostly because my first choices were all taken, of course! I'm from the St Louis area and I'm infatuated with Twilight and Bella & Edward's story. I'm waaaay too old (about 50) for this stuff, but the story is so compelling, I just can't resist it. I was unaware of the books until the first movie came out. I thought the trailer looked interesting and I wanted to watch the movie. I'm a big reader, so of course when I found out there were books (!!!) I had to read them. I checked out the first one from the library and after I read it, I was hooked. I couldn't wait then for the other books to become available at the library, so I ordered them, in hardback no less, which is something I don't often do. It was a good investment though because I've read them all over and over. My order of favorites is: Twilight, Breaking Dawn, New Moon and Eclipse - though I have to say the movie Eclipse was Excellent. I really liked it - way better than I was anticipating, probably because it was my least favorite book.
I really like Edward's character. The difference between how he sees himself and how others see him is really interesting. I also like Carlisle - I bet his back story is really interesting. Rose is probably my least favorite - who else? :lol:
Anyway, that's me. I'm looking for a place where I can read some posts as to what others think about the books or movies and maybe share what I think.

Hi Laura, welcome to the forum. There is no such thing as "way to old" for Twilight :) I'm a 40-something Twiguy myself.

Hi Laura,I'm Raine. Welcome to the lex. Just like what Jestak says there's no such thing as age limit when it comes to loving Twilight. No age barriers just pure Twilight addiction. Hope to see you around the board...
