Team Edward

Okay so since my sister-in-law Amanda is sitting outside waiting for a book tonight I thought I would honor her hard work with a post. I am a big fan of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. I actually got into it because my brother-in-law Nathaniel needed a book to read for school and had seen a lot of girls reading twilight so he figured it must be good, plus it would be a good way to flirt with the girls! So I bought it and challenged him to read it before me. I was only able to read it when I was at my in-laws and he wasn't reading it. I didn't get very far while he was in school and then one day after he was out I picked it up and just started and never stopped. Then I went out and bought the next two books at Sam's club and challenged Nathaniel to finish the first one before I finished the second book. Anyhow we continued this challenge until we ran out of books and I finished the first and second first and he finished the third first. I love the books and could hardly put them down and convinced everyone else I ran into to read them because they are wonderful. I haven't read this much since I graduated from college. So I am looking forward to "Breaking Dawn" that is out today but at the same time I don't want it to end. I figure that Bella and Edward will end up together I just hope that Jacob is able to imprint on someone and be happy. I agree with my sister Kortney that Bella will be giving up a lot by being with Edward but she loves him so much and I can't even imagine being without my handsome husband Kevin so I understand where she is coming from. I hope that when I finish this series I will be able to keep reading and reopen that window of imagination that I lost for a couple years. It is so nice to escape into a book!
