I really did try to avoid it. I read the books a while ago, skimmed them actually and didn't really think much of them at all. Too teenage angsty for me thanks, slight Mills & Boon tendency too, although with a whole lot less sex! My sister made me watch the first movie too and I really just wanted to giggle my way through it. Team Edward, Team Jacob... I was on Team Who Cares! I needed something to read the other day and grabbed it off the bookshelf to flick through... and, well, I dont really know how it happened but I got sucked in. I actually read all of it in one day (dont ask me how I managed it as I have those 3 small people who seem to follow me everywhere)! Then Darren's shirts needed ironing (and there were A LOT of them) and I stuck it in the dvd player purely to avoid having to watch Days of our Lives, and I got sucked in a little bit more. I ordered the second movie on Foxtel and managed to read book number 2 in 2 days and if Glee hadn't been on tv tonight I would have finished number 3 as well. I'm off to see the movie tomorrow night with some other truly obsessed women and I cant wait! I found out today as I was googling (yes, I even went to the dedicated fan website) that they are turning book number 4 into two movies, just to stretch us out a little more. Oh, what a tease! Anyone else want to join me in this obsession? Please, dont leave me out here on my own!
