OK. So I admit I may be a little slow at getting with the times but now that I have been reading the Twilight books I’m [completely hooked. I never got to see the movie in the theaters even though I always wanted to and hadn’t read the books either. For Valentine’s Day, Rob thought it would be a good idea for me to read the first of the Twilight books before the movie release at the end of March. Little did he or I know that once I started reading, I wouldn’t be able to put it down. It took me a couple weeks to pick the book up and get started but in just a week and a half, I was done and wanting more. For my birthday, Rob got me the entire boxed set (yes, now I have two copies of the first book) and in less than a week I’ve finished another one. I get started and just can’t stop. I sneak off all the time to catch just a page or two and before I know it I’ve read an entire chapter. This weekend I will start Eclipse, the third book and try desperately to slow down so I don’t finish it too quickly.
Now that I’m hooked, I just can’t get enough. I have Twilight wall papers on my computer, cell phone and iPod Touch. I got Twilight key chains a couple nights ago and almost bought a shirt. The craziest thing though is I’m actually going to a midnight release party tomorrow (3/20/09) at Border’s in the mall so I can be one of the first to get a DVD. I didn’t plan ahead though and forgot to reserve a copy so I may have to wait till I can find it elsewhere tomorrow but its OK. It’ll be fun to play trivia games and such and see how much I really know about the series. I’ve never gone to anything like this before. Never done a midnight book/DVD release. Never gone to see the midnight showing of a movie. Never…. although that will change when Transformers comes out this summer (Rob’s obsessive movie). Rob is so patient when it comes to the Twilight stuff now. I just explain it to him that it is my Transformers . . . lol
Just one last thing . . . I only hope this poster is a good representation of the movie. I love Edward’s eyes in this photo. I only hope they are this beautiful and golden in the movie. They are just like I pictured them when I was reading the book even before I saw this photo.
