Twilight Addict

I am admitting my obsession. I am 110% hooked on the Twilight series. I bought the first 2 books on Thursday... had the first one read by Saturday night. I would have had it done sooner but it was an Easter gift to the demons and I was reading in secret. I was busted in the last chapter though... I heard Demon #1 walking in my room but I couldn't put the book down - I had to know how it ended.

The second book, New Moon, I read in less than 24 hours. I got nothing done yesterday but laundry. The family had to wait for supper until I was done with the book. They are suffering because of my addiction.

I'm not alone. My bestest friend is reading it, too. In fact, at one point yesterday we were in the same part of the book. I talked to her in the morning and found out that I had passed her up. I don't care if she has a 3 month old baby at home and 3 other kids to take care of - read faster, dammit! So I told her I would stop at the end of Chapter 12 so she could catch up. She finally called me last night and confessed that she read farther... I didn't feel so bad that I only had about 10 pages to go until I read the whole thing.

I guess I was the only one in this world that didn't know werewolves were a part of this book, too. So that was a surprise to me. I'm glad I didn't know - I didn't see it coming. I should have, of course, since it was mentioned in the first book but I figured it wasn't significant. I was wrong. I did have issues with the fact that Edward wasn't in most of the book. I was getting pissed at him... how could he leave Bella like that? Seriously? My heart broke when he thought she was dead and he was trying to have himself killed. He didn't want to live in a world that she wasn't apart of. How absolutley romantic is that? And then to find out that he left the pictures and his music in her floorboards... I busted out laughing (which made Demon #1 tell me I was a headcase). I was sorta disappointedg that Bella wasn't actually hearing his voice when she was in trouble, that she created it herself. I was really hoping that Edward was just watching her from a distance, trying to keep her safe.

So yes, I'm hooked. I have to go and get the other 2 books now. I have to pace myself though - I read the first two far too fast. But I need to know how... or if... they are going to be able to turn Bella into a vampire and not break the treaty.

I know my bestest friend has started the 3rd book without me. I just know it.
