I honestly tried to avoid it....

I’ve never been part of the “in” crowd. Now that I’m totally in the whole Twilight thing, I’m thinking I’m in!

I picked up the first book last year. I gave in to what everyone was talking about. I conformed. Then, I told myself I would use the book on my senior project (I did. For two paragraphs) for cut down on the guilt factor. I mean, Twilight isn’t real books! I’m better than that. I’ve read great books before. Twilight…eh…whatever.

I couldn’t put it down. I ordered the next book from the library and waited. And waited. And waited. I couldn’t put New Moon down either.

As much as the topic of the books creeped me out at first, I’m loving them.

Now comes Eclipse. Instead of waiting for it to come from the library, I borrowed it from my uncle’s girlfriend who would definitely get to me quicker.

And guess what? I finished that HUGE book in 2 ½ days!

Now, waiting a few weeks until she can bring me the next one isn’t enough. I found a friend that could possibly give me the last book tomorrow.

I broke my rule of not watching movies based on books. I watched the movie. It wasn’t amazing but it was okay. I’d watch it again. I’m actually thinking about watching it again very soon even though I just finished watching…

I’m sorry. I don’t want to be obsessed with Twilight. I honestly tried not to.

I’m punishing myself by actually reading the assigned reading for English that I planned not to read. Here I come Macbeth. That’ll teach me not to read more scary vampire books…..right?

This is how I felt when the Harry Potter extravaganza began. I resisted and resisted and then proceeded to read the first four books in a month. Waiting for the others to publish was a form of (mild and amusing) torture. When Twilight began, I remembered HP and just dove right in and started reading.

It's like possessed or something. I'm a "high brow" reader and it got me too.
