I've been bitten by Twilight...

Well, it has been over a month since I have posted! Partly because I haven't had the time but mainly because I lost two weeks by doing nothing but read the Twilight Series. I don't understand what about the books sucks everyone in... Something about the lure of vampires, the passion of their love for each other and the mystery of it all. Typically I stay clear of the latest trend, I'm not hooked on reality TV or any TV for that matter, I purposefully stay blissfully ignorant of the news (it depresses me too much), yet for some reason when I bought the book Twilight I couldn't put it down. That was the beginning, then I read the other three books of the series in 1.5 weeks, staying up until 1:30am because I couldn't stop reading! And now with the release of Twilight the movie, I have seen it twice and intend on seeing it again this Friday. Why? I don't know... I find myself saddened that Edward (the lovely vampire) is only a fictional character... There is something to be said though of the wonders of a good book, to take you out of the reality of day to day life, to spark your imagination and make you feel alive again. Through all of this, I have come to realize that so many of the qualities that draw me to Edward, my dear Jeremy already possesses, so I must consider myself lucky.
