Last Friday my friend invited me to see the new Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn Part 1. I agreed, even though I had never read any of the books or seen any of the movies. Crazy, right? Actually a year or two ago my best friend kept trying to get me to read them, but I never did because I thought they would be stupid and I didn't want to be one of those girls. But anyways, it was amazing. I'm not exaggerating, I loved it even though I didn't know the Twilight story.
So the next day I borrowed the books from my mom's friend, because I was going to read them over Thanksgiving break while I was in Texas. And since my mom's friend had read them, she convinced my mom to read them also. My mom. Reading Twilight. I never ever would have thought that would happen. Now if my mom loves them as much as I do (enough to buy the whole hardcover book set), that alone should convince you to read them.
I read the first 3 books in a week (I started last Sunday). I actually just finished "Eclipse", the third book (and the books pictured above), last night. I honestly can't say enough about this series. It is so well written, I feel like I am in the story when I read the books. I wish I was in the story, it's that good! I have one book left to read, but I almost don't want to read it yet because I don't want the series to end! The Twilight books are my favorite books now, up there with Harry Potter. Now that's saying something if I like a book series as much as Harry Potter.
Disclaimer: If you've only seen the movies and not the books, stop what you're doing right now and start reading the books. The books are 100 times better then the movies, and the first movie is nothing like the first book.
By the way, in case anyone was wondering, I'm Team Edward.
Now go read Twilight!
ps. Jade, even though you don't usually like books like this, I think you would love them as much as I do. But I would wait until you're older to read them.
