I've been bit...
Yes Sucias, I HAVE BEEN BIT! I would have never thought that I would be this intrigued with the best selling, tweenie bopper, Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer, as much as I am. It has been 2 weeks since I saw Twilight the movie for the first time EVER. At first I didn't know what to expect I figured it was a typical teenage love story & it involved vampires, blah, blah, blah. Up until this point the only vampire movies that I had watched were Interview with a Vampire (Starring yummy Tom Cruise & Brad Pitt, ahhhh!), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (remember that one?) & another blast from the past, The Lost Boys (an 80's classic!). So when I sat down to watch the movie I was right! Typical teenage love story, but almost with a Romeo & Juliet sense to it. Because of this R&J feel to the love story, I was curious about what happens next in the sequel & the books. So one of my co-workers brought me the first two books of the Saga...Twilight & New Moon along withe New Moon (the movie-of course I watched it as soon as I got home). I have to be honest, these movies have horrible acting but I was looking past that in regards to the plot of the movie & the love story (yes, I am a hopeless romantic believe it or not). I started to read Twilight & couldn't put it down! I finished this book in 3 days & jumped into New Moon (the sequel/2nd book in the saga). Needless to say New Moon was not as fascinating as Twilight, it took me a week to get through it. New Moon was very slow, boring & much longer than Twilight. Although I do have to say that the author Stephanie Meyers captured my attention again at the end of the book with a sudden marriage proposal (pretty much the cliff hanger). While I enjoyed Twilight more, both books were more detailed than the movies were (they always are) and I was extremely happy that I watched the movies FIRST then read the books...If I had done it the other way around I know for a fact I would have been VERY disappointed with the movie. If you haven't given these movies or books a chance, DO IT!
I have to say I feel like a teenage girl with a secret crush....on a vampire!
Till next week Sucias!
