So the Twilight “saga” has completely taken over my reading life. Sad to say but it is true. I burned through New Moon (Quick Summary: Edward leaves Bella. Bella is oh so sad. Blah blah blah blah blah blah werewolves blah blah blah. Bella and Edward get back together.)
Then I devoured Eclipse during our weekend visit to New York City. (Quick Summary: Bella brings everyone together. Lots of Bella and Edward.) I’m supposed to wait for my friend to give me Breaking Dawn (we had a complicated system of borrowing, buying and lending to get both of us all four books) but I’m too impatient to wait for her to get done so I downloaded it on my Kindle this morning. (And how cool that I could buy it and start reading it while sitting in the doctor’s office? I tell you…get a Kindle!)
So now all that stands between me and the end of the saga is 700 some pages. Thank goodness these books are fast and easy to read. I just need to know what happens. And, I’ll confess, I’m a little hung up on Edward Cullen. (There, I said it. I’m pathetic. I know this and I DON’T CARE.)
As I’ve read, I beginning to see the flaws in the books. The writing really isn’t that good. What is good is how I can put myself in Bella’s place and have Edward love me. I thought New Moon was kind of a drag because Edward wasn’t in it for most of the book. Eclipse was definitely better — and I better get the payoff I am expecting in Breaking Dawn. But I’ve been warned … I know many have been disappointed.
So just a quick note to let you know I am alive. I have some cool books to show you that I got in New York City. I have two cool giveaways to tell you about. And I have other non-Twilight books to review. So as soon as Ms. Meyer releases me, I will be back and more focused. But until then, I’m in the middle of a wedding….
