Breaking Dawn


I finally finished! This has been a running joke with my girlfriends. I got through the first three books in no time and this one has taken me forever. I’m glad I took my time and read when I was able to though. I must say that reading these books made me want to read. I have never been a bookworm or someone that reads as a hobby. I can see why people do now. It is a fun escape from reality and it lets you use your imagination. I already have more books lined up that I want to start.

The entire Twilight series has been wonderful. I enjoyed each book so much and loved reading about the love between Edward and Bella. Some things in the books were foreshadowed and predictable, but it didn’t make them any less entertaining. To me it truly was a kind of modern day Romeo and Juliet.

I look forward to the making of the next three movies, but I am sure they won’t compare to the books. Robert Pattinson is such eye candy, so that makes it much more entertaining. He definitely brings out my inner “tween”.

Woo-hoo! I'm glad you finished ;) It took me I think 8 days to finish all 4 books. I was SO ADDICTED! I agree though - this series made me want to read again. When I was in High School I had over 200 R.L. Stine books & I read all the time, but I really haven't gotten into anything in years. I SO wish the Edward/Bella saga wasn't over! Now you need to go to Stephanie Meyers website & read what she has written so far for "Midnight Sun"! It is some of Edward's perspective of the first book! SO GOOD!

woo hoo! i started reading a new young adult vampire series by rachel caine, and it has stepped in for twilight for me.

i wanted to tell you I got your pay it forward package! thanks so much! my husband stuck it in the office and didn't tell me about it so I stumbled across it this weekend while cleaning. i love everything - the pink pail, the green croc journal, the towel - you are awesome!

YAYAYA you're ahead of me! haha I'm on "New Moon"

I was sooo sad when I finished them. I didn't want them to end. The first movie was great and I can't wait to see New Moon.

If you need another book to read and haven't read the Something Borrowed/Something Blue books by Emily Giffin I def recommend them.

I was the same way! I zoomed through the first three in two weeks, but it took me forever to finish the last fifty pages of the final book. Maybe I didn't want it to be over? :)
