im addicted

i just heard about these books about a month ago and after being accused of "living under a rock" for never having heard of them i ordered it through half.com and read it in like 2 days. i kind of wanted to not like it - i am not a big vampire fan...i guess...they never have really intrigued me i suppose, but i think this book sparked a new fascination. one thing i must say is that this book is extremely linear - there are really no side stories or side plots and it was odd to read a book about just one plot - that stuck out to me, but it wasn't necessarily a bad thing. what i did love is that the author - Stephanie Meyer - totally captured the high school love/crush thing. i couldnt help but harken back...way back to a crush on a boy who was no good for me and i knew it but i couldnt stay away...he wasnt a vampire, but then again - who knows? i loved the way she forced the reader to ride along on the hormonal rollercoaster of a 17 year old girl. anwyay - it wasn't shakespeare...which i still have yet to finish, sorry joel - but it was absolute brain candy and i didnt hesitate to order the second one in the series almost instantly...

Missie's obsessed, too. Until recently, I'd never even heard of these books...
