I have been contemplating rereading these books for a little while. I have resisted because, frankly, I am useless enough as it is lately. Give me a fun book to read, or three, and I am COMPLETELY useless. I have no self control. I read until the book is finished. I envy those girls that can read for a 1/2 hour or hour before bedtime and be done with it. I am not one of those girls. My friend Crystal has been known to have the self control to not read her book until her house is clean, and sometimes she will only read it while she is on the treadmill. Not me. The kids and the house go to pot until my book is done. Since the house and my kids have pretty much gone to pot because I have been so sick, I figure, why not. I might as well be entertained while I am trying not to hurl, right;)
It is not the best writing around. They are like candy books. Nothing but empty calories. You don't really learn anything from them. (I like to tell my husband that I learn something new with every book I read. That is why I am so good at Trivial Pursuit;) These books, not so true.) But the story is compelling as well as entertaining. And who isn't fascinated by vampires? (yes, I loved the series "Angel", Good vampire plus hot guy equals quality T.V. The same is true about this new Twilight movie, I'm sure of it;)
Now, who was it that I borrowed these books from a few summers ago? Be expecting a call!
