A Confession....


I'm coming of the closet so to speak....I'm admitting to the world, that Yes, I am a 37 year old stay at home mom with two kids and am addicted to any and all things related to Twlight!

I can't help it! Have you read these books? I do enjoy reading, but I never thought I'd be able to read 4 books - 500+ pages each in just a few weeks. Maybe this will all wear off at some point and I'm sure I will look back at how crazy myself and my friends (the ones willing to admit it!) were over this thing. I'm trying to understand how someone like myself is so drawn to this story of vampires and werewolves. Seems so strange - I don't even like science fiction or horror books or movies. Several friends had told me that the movie wasn't all it was cracked up to be. But, I think since my expectations were so low - I actually really liked it. There were many, many things that were left out from the book which is understandable given the time restraint. So if you've only seen the movie, and not read the book - then you must read the book!
I am also very inspired by the author - Stephenie Meyer- she is a stay at home mother of 3 little boys. Well, I assume she's not as "stay at home" as she used to be given her success with Twilight. She wrote the books after her children were in bed at night and had no inclination to have them published until her sister read the story and encouraged her. I love the fact that she stuck with what was in her heart to do, not knowing the outcome. She expressed her creativity and found great success. Not that we can all make millions of dollars making crocheted hats, but I do feel inspired by her tenactiy.
Ok, now that that is off my chest.....I will try to concentrate on other things (like providing my family with meals and clean clothes) It really is amazing how self sufficient and resourceful children can be when their mom has her head in a book! Well, I have to finish the last half of Breaking Dawn first!
I know there are hordes of people out there crazy about this. Are you one of them? Are you willing to admit it? Go ahead, it feels good!

Oh hell yes. You are not the only one. My sister and I both are horribly addicted to these books. We've both read them all.
