I'm just wondering if I'm the only one of my kind here, lol. :P
I actually saw the movie Twilight before I ever considered reading the books. The first time I watched it, I really did not like it. Okay, I'll admit it - I hated it. I just couldn't get over that these vampires could go outside in the daylight and sparkled! What??
But, I just let it go and didn't even think about Twilight for months. Then, I happened to have one of the Showtime channels on while I was working online and Twilight came on. I found myself actually paying attention, and decided to watch it again from the beginning. I don't know what happened this time around, but I was hooked. This was about the time New Moon was coming out on DVD, so I rented it and I really enjoyed it. I realized I wanted more.
Not long after, I bought the books and read all four within about a week or so. I was blown away by the story - I had a very hard time putting the books down, and now I'm borderline obsessive about the Twilight saga. I own Twilight and New Moon on DVD (and watch them fairly regularly) and caught Eclipse in theaters. I cannot wait for Eclipse to be out on DVD, and now I am dying to see what they'll do with Breaking Dawn - my favorite of the series. :)
So, are there any others like me out there? I'm really curious, as I know many die-hard fans started with the books, and I went a bit backwards - not to mention I really hated the movie the first time around. Anyone else have a similar experience, or am I just one of a kind, lol. XP
I saw Twilight Movie first, I thought it was okay, but I remember someone saying in the audience on certain parts that didn't happen in the book, I saw Twilight December 2008, I did not start reading Twilight until April 2009, and was hooked immediately, and have been eversince, so I've read the books 4 times each including Midnight Sun, yes I'm sure more have read the saga more than me...I'm a mom and work..so sometimes it's hard..But I am obsessessd with Twi, I wear my Twilight Bracelet Team Edward, been wearing this for over a year, I do not plan to take it off anytime soon, also New Moon bracelets...Twilight Saga is not easy to let go of, though other things do go on in one's life...
