Last summer, one of my reps told me while on vacation, she had read the best books. She told me I would love them. I asked her what they were about. She smiled sheepishly and said...."vampires." She quickly added..."It is not like it sounds, you will want you own!" I was having trouble getting my daughter to read, to make her AR goal. Although, I used to love reading, the last few years I just haven't had the time. I decided I would read one, to make sure it was appropriate for my daughter to read. During the days my office was closed during Thanksgiving, I managed to read three of the four books. I was addicted. My husband would tease me relentlessly. My daughter, who hates to read, is now on her fourth book. Of course, while I am in awe of Edward, my daughter thinks Jacob hung the moon. (No pun intended). After she finished the book, I took her to see Twilight the movie. It was not quite as good as the book. She was disappointed that Edward wasn't as handsome in the movie as the book.
I now have my friends and co-workers reading the series. One friend, who wasn't excited about the series is now on the third book. She, my daughter and I are going to see the Twilight movie tomorrow.
As I said, I am addicted. And yes, I want my own vampire.
