Once Bitten

Alright, so I've caved to peer pressure & started reading Twilight. The boys weren't really interested & I wasn't interested enough to buy them for myself, but sometime last year Jack got the first 2 books from someone. He read the first one & never started the second. I don't think teen boys are their target audience.

Now I really got into the book. I read about half of it last night. Then I was stopped dead in my tracks. He sparkles?? WTF kind of vampire sparkles! I get that they are romanticizing for the little tween girls & housewives, but this made me close the book last night & go to sleep. I'm sure I was muttering disgustedly in my sleep about sparkling.

Interview With A Vampire had pretty vampires & even more homoerotic subtext than even Anne Rice intended, still I didn't see Brad or Tom Sparkle.

I've decided to try to overlook the sparkly part & continue reading, just don't tell Nosferatu, OK?

Oh, I caved too....and read all 4 boys. It was insane, once I started I couldnt stop myself. I feel so dirty. Sparkling vampires and all.

I also fell into the pressure. I am waiting to read the third book. I even did a post about it today. I see you are featured today at Jen's. Yeah to you. Have a great day.

I finally started reading them too, am on the third book right now. Honestly I think the books may be a little over-hyped.
Thanks for stopping by my blog last week and entering my contest =)

Visiting from SITS!
Stick with the book, ignore the cheesy,teeny bopper-ish stuff. They get better!

Something had to happen when he was in sunlight (besides the requisite burning) to make it easier for the author to let the Cullens be in school - but also give them a reason to leave on the sunny days.

Forget about the sparkling. The first book is the best of the four.

Saw you on Melissa Papaj's print contest. Very jealous of your win. Congrats!

I have tried reading this silly book TWICE, and both times I have given up. I just can not get into it.
I WANTED to like it! Really.

I know legions of Twilight fans are lining up to kick my butt...

I will admit, the sparkling is cheesy!
