So I’ve given in to it….. If you don’t know, I am an avid reader. It’s one of my favorite past-times. I like fiction best…. probably because I’m a romantic at heart and I like the creativeness behind most stories. Jonathan gave my name to a publishing company (or something) that sends me free books in return for me posting a review and link on my blog…. I love free books!
Anyway, my co-workers have all been talking about this series that is out, called “Twilight.” I mean, they have been ranting and raving about these books, especially now that the movie is coming out or rather came out (this week). So I borrowed the first book from Kristine. I’m a little skeptical about series that build on each other because I tried to read all the “Left Behind” series, but there was just way too many of them. I got to the 10th book I think and then had no interest in finishing…. But I think this one is only four books, so I might finish.
I started “Twilight” yesterday at lunch, read last night and finished it this afternoon… all 500 pages. It was a lot longer than my normal books, but it was good. It was interesting and it kept my attention which is why I finished it so quickly. Ten months ago, I would have scoffed at the book and never picked it up. Why? Well, the main male character is a vampire. I would have vehemently dismissed anything so evil. But I guess, I’m beginning to realize that you can’t relate to culture if you don’t know what they are thinking. It was really good… makes you think a little.
