Have you jumped on the bandwagon?

The "Twilight Series" bandwagon that is! I have. I'm about 100 pages in to the second book. It only took me a couple of days to finish the first book...pretty easy reading.

If you are reading them, I won't put any spoilers in this post so you can feel free to keep reading...

I like them so far and don't kill me if you're a "Twilight Fanatic" but I don't LOVE them. I think it bothers me that Bella and Edward are high school students, well, technically just Bella and no, that's not a spoiler, because if you didn't realize Edward is a vampire, (and that means he's REALLY old) you probably need to be a little more observant. I'd probably be able to buy into the whole concept just a little bit more if Bella was a touch older. That being said, I am enjoying the books. I had to read them, I couldn't be left out since just about everyone and her sister is reading this series right now. I'll probably see the movie when it comes out on DVD, I don't know if there's anyone who will want to go see it with me.

So anyway, if you're not reading them, what are you waiting for? It's an easy, fun read and you might be like me and not get obsessed...well, not TOO obsessed. I think I'll go read for a little while now. ;)

Hi Caren! Your comment on my blog cracked me up :) My anonymous commenter is pretty interesting... I have no clue who it is, but I hope they keep leaving me hints! (I don't think they know what pretentious means, either!)
your blog is so cute! i can't wait to read more!

Oh gosh, I guess I just read for pleasure and don't put too much emphasis on age and whatnot but I really am LOVING the series. The second book moved a little bit slow to me through the first part, but once it picked up I couldn't put it down. Loved Eclipse and I am finding it hard to put down Breaking Dawn. I am about halfway through it now. You are the first person throughout all the blogs I have read that has not just LOVED the series. I absolutely can't wait to go see the Twilight movie.

I've read the first book and am supposed to get the second book sometime soon. I'm borrowing the books from a friend.

My mom bought us tickets to see Twilight the night it comes out. I think there will be several of us going.

I really liked the first book and hope the rest are just as enjoyable.

Ok, nope, I haven't bit the dust yet....but I am sure I will soon. Various reasons, but I know everyone just loves them.
I am cracking up at your letter to our new "President."
