Did you see Dancing with the Stars this week? They danced to songs that were considered "guilty pleasures" which I thought was pretty funny. And got me to thinking about my newest guilty pleasure-only mine came in book form... and thought that I should probably start off this post with a public apology first.... lol
So, to all my friends who told me these books were amazing, and not really about vampires but more of a love story.... I am sorry that I thought you were crazy! And to my friends who stood waiting in line for the midnight showing of the corresponding movie, I'm sorry that I seriously thought you had lost your mind!!! And to my friends who pretty much threw a celebration when those movies came out on video... I am soooo sorry I didn't join in on your fun!!!
I watched my first Twilight movie a month or two ago strictly under the pretense of seeing what it was about because I found out my step son liked the movie. We are hoping he gets to come visit and I since we aren't too far from the town of Forks, WA, I thought I really should give the movie a shot... and then I couldn't help but get the second book at the library... you know, just to see if the book really was better than the movie (as they usually are!). To make a long story short, I just finished the last page of the last book in the saga and I feel as if I could cry!! I don't want it to be over and I don't know what to do now!! lol How do you come down from the high of such a great book?!!?
So, we get to the plea part of this post.... for those of you who read the books, or even just watched the movies (although the movies don't even touch the awesomeness of the books!) what did you do when you finished the books and had to face a day without reading something that good? Did you start back at book one and read them all again? Did you start in on another series? DO tell please!! lol
I almost didn't even want to admit to this new love of mine. I faught it for so long, not wanting anything to do with Twilight, as I am so NOT into vampires and that sort of thing. But now I find that my friends were right, it wasn't your typical vampire book and really was just an amazing love story (with out the blushing parts). I can't remember the last time I was so hooked on a book and now I just feel sad that it's over. My guilty pleasure of getting to read a few pages of somethign other than a kids book, or if I was lucky a whole chapter is over and now I'm looking for something to takes it's place....
And of course I am already counting down to the movie coming out in November and already have ideas of how I can make it work to have a sitter! lol I understand the obsession with these books and hope my friends can forgive the eye rolls I made behind their backs! :) I will be sending out a number post cards from our trip to Forks this summer!: )
I am curious though... what team are you on? :) I'm still undecided....
