Gone with her Thoughts: What (Re)Started It All

So Friday morning I went to Barnes & Noble to pick up a copy of Twilight and New Moon. I have to admit that it took me this long to finally give in and read it because of all the hype and because I thought it was something for teenagers…so for a long time I didn’t give it a second thought. I hadn’t even heard of Twilight until the movie was coming out but I wasn’t going to go see that before I read the book. So I’ve been off all week and have been seeing the ads for the Twilight DVD and my curiosity was sparked again, and on top of that Barnes & Noble sent me a 15% off coupon that would be taken off the already 10% off I get for being a member, so I thought “what the heck!”

I started reading Twilight around 7/7:30 on Friday….I was hooked!! I finally had to put it down because Tom and I had plans like at 9, but trust me, I didn’t want to! It was crazy!

Yesterday I was able to do everything I had to do and not give in to reading the book…so I started reading again around 7 and stopped when Tom got home. We went to bed around 12 but I wasn’t sleepy yet so I decided to read till I got sleepy. Well I didn’t get sleepy, instead I couldn’t stop reading. I finally let out a yawn and looked at my phone…it was freaking 4:45 in the morning!!! Lol I forced myself to put it down and forced myself to sleep at that point.

This morning I finished it.

It was sooo good! Incredible! I LOVED it!! I would describe my personal thoughts and feelings but I find that to be impossible…I want to keep them all to myself. Although, I don’t think I could really put it into words. It would take me a while to come up with all the RIGHT words to describe it. Just trust me on this one girls (and maybe some guys but I doubt it would have the same effect), YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!! Especially before seeing the movie. And you will DEFINITELY be tempted to just put down the book and just seeing the movie because you’ll feel like you’re not reading fast enough….DON’T DO IT.

I’m glad I didn’t, because I just saw the movie right now and omg…it made me mad!! I don’t think there could’ve been a better person to play Edward…o-m-g he’s a freakin’ hot vampire! Not as hot as Brad in Interview with a Vampire though…and not as hot and tortured as describe in the book either, that was a big disappointment :( It was an ok movie, but it didn’t do the writing any justice! It just didn’t translate the feeling of the book to me. I understand that when writing a screenplay/making a movie from a book a lot of things have to get condensed and cut…BUT COME ON! Lol

So I’m off to start reading new moon now…laters taters!!
