Okay, so I kind of pride myself on not doing things for the mere reason that EVERYONE else is doing it. I’ve always upheld that standard in my life as my #1 rule…until now.
I never really bought in to the whole "Twilight" blowup. Didn’t go out and read the book or the reviews or talk about it with anyone. I would actually excuse myself from the conversation if that was the topic. Until a month or so ago, I was doing my little sisters’ hair and my dad had just bought her the movie. So naturally, Steph was raving about it and was in complete shock that I STILL had not seen it. Especially since she had seen it in theaters more than once.
So, unable to argue as to why I was not interested (never a good idea to argue with a teenage girl when it comes to boys, ie. Edward) I gave in. As I was braiding her hair, all of it I might add, during my break from school Andrea (my other little sister) put on the movie. Naturally, we skipped the previews and got straight to it.
I have to admit, I fully expected to be bored and focus on her hair as it played but that was not the case. I found myself completely distracted…taken in by the film, from the beginning. The story line, the intensity between Edward and Bella. I felt like a love sick teenager again. And I LOVED IT!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t finish it that day since I had to go back to school. But I rented it soon after. What an amazing film, for people young to old to appreciate. Being the creative writer that I am, I gave in and bought the book. Oh my god. I was hooked. I finished it in less than two days.
I’m dying to get the next ones, just been too busy. But I should have it by tomorrow. If you’ve read them, then you know what I’m talking about. If you have no idea, I suggest to get on it…and fast. Stephanie Meyer’s use of imagery is exceptional. Her words, the adjectives in her details are so well put that you can easily see it in your mind. Even without having seen the film.
I’m so excited to keep reading that I can barely wait!
