I stayed up (much too late) last night finishing "Twilight." Since it's technically classified as "Young Adult Fiction," I never would have picked it up if it hadn't been "assigned" reading for the book club I'm in. (Though I read.... and loved.... all of the "Harry Potter" books without thinking twice.) But, I suppose there is a little bit of teenager left in me. Besides, how could I resist reading a New York Times Bestseller written by someone who has so much in common with me... we went to the same college where we both majored in English, she grew up next door to me (well, actually the city next door... I guess there she has more in common with Jay), is a member of the same church as me, and she married a guy from Arizona and is the mother of 3 children, just like me! We both dreamed of being "published" but I'm afraid that's where the similarity ends.
But I digress.
I'm not giving anything away by telling you that one of the central characters is a vampire, because it says so on the back of the book (which I think was a mistake... it would have been much more fun to discover this fact along with the heroine). This is another reason why I would never have read this book... I simply don't read "vampire books." However, this isn't really a vampire book. But it is a fun read. I hope they make the movie.
I'm anxious to start on the sequel.
