Twilight...6 years later

Years ago, when Twilight first came out, I was obsessed!!! I mean, I literally read all 4 books in a week, and then picked them up a week later and read them again. If you haven't read the books yet (which is absurd, by the way) you need to pick them up and read them. Like, tomorrow. Since reading them a few years ago, they have been sitting on my shelf collecting dust. Well just last week I decided to pick them up and read them again. BIG mistake. I am completely sucked right back in. And not in the "Wow this is a really good book and I don't want to put it down" kind of way. But in a "oh my god why are vampires not real" and "I just saw a silver Volvo, think it's Edward Cullen?" kind of way. Its a huge problem. Something about the books---draws me right in and takes over my whole day. I know, I sound like an obsessed teeny-bopper. If you are one of the few that have not read the books, you are probably thinking, what could possibly be good about them? A whiny, clumsy teenage girl living in a rainy town in Washington, a bunch of beautiful vampires that don't drink human blood, and a 16 year old werewolf with a 12 pack. Well, boys and girls, Stephanie Meyer must have some kind of magical powers, because she turned those 3 things into the most amazing 2,200 pages in existence. Let's dive right in, shall we?

Meet Edward Cullen. The most beautiful 19 year old vampire in existence. He sparkles...He can stop a car from crushing you..And his eyes just happen to be the most beautiful color ever.

Prime example...Bella is about to be crushed by the van, in steps Edward. Seriously, why are real people not able to do this? 

Meet Jacob--the 16 year old that I previously referred to. He starts out with like a 5 minute role in the first book. By the second book, we know his entire life story and how much he loves Bella. Poor Jake.

Oh the meadow...The meadow appears several times throughout the book, and it makes you wish that everyone laid in wildflowers and sparkled in the sun. Unfortunately, I live in Florida and fire ants suck. So I don't lay in meadows. Or sit on the grass. Ever.

This is some of the sparkly I was referring to. I know what you are thinking--skinny white guy with no shirt on---how attractive. I guarantee you will feel differently when you read the books. Unless you are my aunt Pat, in which case you probably stopped reading after the first line. 

So let's recap:
1. Twilight is the most amazing book to ever be written. Followed by New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.
2. It sucks that vampires don't exist in real life
3. These books have the power to take over your entire lie
4. If you haven't read the books, close your laptop and go to the library. Or go to See how easy, you don't even have to get up.

So there's another one of my secrets. I am a complete twi-hard. And I love sparkly vampires. True story. 

I hope everyone is having a great week so far...and guess what, 3 day weekend coming up!!!!
