Hello from a NC Twi-Mom!

Postby bookgirl » Sat Sep 11, 2010 6:19 pm

Hi! I'm bookgirl, and I'm excited to formally join over here! I've gotten the Facebook news feeds from Twilight Lexicon for awhile but hadn't officially joined the site until now. I used bookgirl originally as part of one of my email addresses because I am a librarian. I have used the same thing as a screen name on the two Twilight forums that I use: TwilightMoms and now Twilight Lexicon.
I resisted reading Twilight for a couple of years even though it had been suggested to me by a couple of students. I just didn't think I would like reading that "big vampire book". LOL (I don't know what I was thinking; I loved Angel.) After a couple of teachers came to me and said "Have you read this book?", I gave in and started reading. I was so engrossed in them that I couldn't put them down. I read each one in a single day; I was rockin' some pretty bad dark circles under my eyes that week. :lol: Once I finished, I had to turn right around and read them again. And again. And again! I have a hard time picking a favorite book though. If I had to choose, I would probably have to say Twilight since it was the beginning of that beautiful story and had the magic to suck in all of us Twi-hards.
I am defintely Team Edward! Jacob was a great friend to her, but he wasn't the soulmate that Edward was. Edward loves with such an intensity and passion, that he intrigued me. The ulitmate star-crossed lovers scenario. I actually got irritated reading Eclipse because of the Edward-Jacob drama; it was all too black-and-white for me. Of course, she would be with Edward!
I love all the Cullens! But I guess if I had to choose my favorites, I would say Emmett and Alice. I love the comic relief and the intensity that Emmett throws into all his situations. He always says exactly what he thinks and is gung-ho about everything he does. Alice is also great; I would love to have her give me a makeover! :D
In my free time, I love to read, bake and spend time with my family. And I love meeting new Twilight friends. I was able to go to a Twilight Convention in April, and it was amazing to be in such a group of other Twi-fans! I have now read the entire series 8 times (and yes, I am one of those that gave in and read Midnight Sun! I couldn't help myself, and I thought it was wonderful. I really hope she finishes it.) I am in my 30s.

Hey. Welcome to the lex!!

Sounds like we would get along very well, I agree w/pretty much everything you said!!
Plus I love all the Cullens but if I had to pick (besides Edward of course) I too would pick Alice & Emmett & for the reasons you said.

See you around the boards.
