As i was coming to the end of Eclipse, i notice that it only took me 1 and 1/2 weeks to finish the first 3 books. It is so weird i remeber starting the first book last Monday and now only one more book to go....and the worse part is im trying to read very slowly but i just have see what happens.
THIS SADDENS ME DEEPLY, i never been this into a series before, where it actual hurts to start the last book. =(
It took me about a week to read the whole series... I actually READ New Moon 1st after SEEING Twilight & went back and READ Twilight and the rest of the series/saga. They were very interesting to me. My fam would probably say that I'm addicted, but I wouldn't say that I am. I like to read (& write my own stories) so if a book(s) catch my interest it doesn't take long at all to read them, usually a day or two, but to see them turned into movies just Wow's me... :)
It took me 7 day start to finish....( had to take a couple breaks to parent my children...LOL)
Edward was DEAD to me after New Moon...I was so angry at him for leaving...it took me till halfway trough eclipse to finally forgive him...Breaking Dawn was my fav of all the books because it was the most satisfying....
I started the books then a week later I was done. Now I read them frequently by preference. Usually I read the Harry Potter series and the Twilight series one after the other and any other book that might interrest me....
My little Twilight Story.....
A friend of mine had been trying to get me to read the books. I didn't think I'd like them. I'm 34 and because the books are in the "teen" or "young adult" section I didn't think it would keep my attention. I was so wrong. I had surgery on my neck last year (titanium plates now hold my neck together - don't ask - long yucky story) so while I had a month of being off work to kill I started reading the books. Since I was sleeping a lot and stuff it took me all month to read the four books, and it really changed me. Believe me, at 34 I was so jaded I never would of thought there'd be any way these books would phase me the way it has. It was so refreshing to read a story that sparked so much hope. Within these books, the story, the characters was a huge reminder of the true meanings of love and loyalty and friendship and family....all forms of what family means.
I remember that the last week I was home I was in the middle of BD and I had to start venturing out into the world. So I went to see my family/friends and to the store, etc. I hated putting down the book. As I told my boyfriend at the time (now my husband) "When I put down this book I feel like all my friends are in there waiting for me to come out and play". That was how I felt. But the street lights come on (for those of you old enough to know what I mean by that) and you have to leave make-believe behind for a little while. I got through my recovery fine, back to work, got married to my best friend, have wonderful friends and family.......but almost every day, just for a little while, weather it's coming to this website or re-reading the books (which I'm in a slow constant flux of doing all the time) I get to visit my friends in Forks in make-believe world for a little while.
i actually saw the twilight movie first (my little sister made me) and ended up totally obssessed right there. i read all four books in 5 days, barely slept, it was insane. and also the best thing ever haha. then i spent a few months constanly re-reading them and watching twilight over and over, everyone thought i was completeley crazy. i sort of got over it eventually, i mean i still LOVVVVVVVVE it but now i'm not constantly doing twilight stuff
