Recently, I was able to meet my dear friend Toi for lunch.  She was in town going to a baby shower so we didn’t waste the opportunity!  Some how during our conversation, she asked if I’d read the Twilight series.  No.  I hadn’t really had any interest.  She insisted that I would need to borrow hers.

When we found out we were going to Barbados, she mailed me the entire series so I could have them to take on the trip.

But I really didn’t think I could get into the whole “vampire” love thing or whatever.  I was planning to take another series I already own, but realized I was missing one.  Anywho.  As we were packing I grabbed the first book….just incase I needed something to read to help me fall asleep on the plane.

I was planning to catch up on my digital scrapbooking most of the flight.  However, the planes were completely full and getting out my computer would take more effort than it was worth.  So, the reading began…..

….and I still haven’t started not one darn scrapbook page.  Toi was oh so right.  The vampire “thing” really goes a bit un-noticed.  I guess we’re just two hopeless romantics at heart.  We’re loving the love story – forgetting its with a dang vampire.

I finished to book within a couple of days.  And was mad.  Mad at myself.  Because I have the whole collection… home.  And I want them NOW.

Michael is going to the dental conference during the day now.  And it’s actually been raining quite a bit.  And I want to read.  About Bella and Edward.

So, I did the most rational thing possible.  I found a book store on the island.  Infact, they had used books.  And, thankfully, they had New Moon.  Just the one I needed.  :)  WOO HOO. 

The reading has continued.  However, knowing they don’t have the third, I need this one to last me until we get home.

Therefore, maybe by the end of the day I’ll have some scrapbook pages to show…

….after one more chapter….


  1. I'm right there with ya sister! I became addicted before the 4th was even out. I read the other 3 in less than 2 weeks and that was with 2 toddlers and a baby on the way! Just remember that the second book is the 'worst' so hang in there until the 3rd because the 4th is as good as the 1st!! Oh and don't expect much from the Twilight movie but New Moon is fantastic!

  2. I agree with Shayla, the 2nd book was by far my least favorite though it was still good! Have fun reading without interruptions - I would've killed for a chance to read all those w/o a toddler pulling at my hair the whole time! :)
