Geeking out (again)!


Last week I had a couple of nights off work, not enough time to really switch back my schedule to a more normal one. So, because I was bored at 1am one day, I decided to re-read the "Twilight" books (the vampire ones)! Oh my god, I totally am geeking out on them, I read them all before I was due back at work - that is about 1600 pages in under 2 days, people!!! Seriously, if you haven't read them yet you need to. They may be aimed at the teen audience, but the stories are so well-written and fast-paced that I totally fell in love with them. Just a great great love story between a normal girl and a guy who just happens to be a vampire (one who belongs to a "vegetarian" family - aka they don't eat human blood) who is tempted beyond belief by her. Sounds dorky, but I have not been able to quit obsessing for the last week - They are currently filming the first movie and book #4 in the series comes out in August, so I'm constantly looking online for news or tidbits. It is so sad, but I just can't help it! So someone else please read them too, so I can freak out with you! LOL. Just a warning though, each book contains the first chapter to the following book at the end as a teaser - do NOT read this unless you have the next one sitting next to you ready to read. ;) And, don't pick it up unless you have time on your hands or are prepared to sacrifice sleep. I had to force myself to put the books down and go to bed each night.
