I've been rebelling against it long enough! I have seen the Twilight series books on shelves at the book store for months and at first I thought, "Oooh, teeny-bopper vampire love story, how lame!" I'd pass it by. Then I saw a bunch of my friends and family members mention it on their blogs and I still said, "No, thanks." Then I heard that the author went to BYU and I REALLY said, "No!" I hate when I'm expected to read and love something just because it's by a Mormon (I'm not a fan of Jack Weyland and John Bytheway is not really that clever).
Anyway, I was looking for a book to read on the airplane during the long cross country flight to California and I got curious. I mean, Twilight was on the New York Best Seller list so there must be something to it, right? So, I thought, "I'll just read this one book and see what all the hub-bub is about." Holy cow!! Who knew that was all it would take to have me hooked. I raved to my mom and Sean about how much I loved it and ran (almost literally) to the nearest store to get the sequels. Sean proceded to make fun of me for the same reasons I mentioned before. Before too long though, he was no where to be found, and neither was my book! He totally swiped it and couldn't put it down either! I should have said "Swiper, no swiping!" Now we're both almost done with the series and can't wait for the movie to come.
