I Finally Finished!

I've referenced the Twilight saga in several posts now, and I finally finished the fourth book this weekend. Seems like a lot of people I've talked to my age and of the "girly" persuasion look at me funny when I say I'm reading these books, but I'm telling you, I really enjoyed them and could not put them down.

I am totally not someone that is into vampires and science fiction and all that and that's what I think people think when they hear what these books are about. That's what I first thought when I heard about them, but I'm a sucker for pop culture, so thought I'd pick up a copy to see what all the fuss was about - and I got sucked in too.

Contrary to what people think, these books are not gross or bloody. The first book, Twilight, is a story about the most wonderful, amazing, all-encompassing kind of love that exists and how two people from very different backgrounds and DNA, for that matter, are attracted to each other. If you've ever been dumped, the second book is going to really hit home. The books build on their love and relationship and they are just easy-to-ready stories about life and love (with a little twist).

There has been some backlash on the books because the female heroine is always in distress and is rescued by her man, but come on, I'd love for Edward Cullen (you have to read the book to truly understand how perfect this vampire is) to save me any time.

The first book has been made into a movie and is being released November 21. You can see a trailer here. I'll leave it to you to make your final judgement, but sometimes it's hard to find a good book. In this case, I found 4. You'll either love them or hate them, but if you're up for something new, give it a whirl. You just might like it.


  1. But didn't you think that Bella got really annoying at times with the whole, "if you ever leave me i'll just die" speech that she agve every 2 minutes (especially in New Moon). Overall I have liked books 1 and 2 (that is all I have read so far) but Bella still annoys me. I guess it also concerns me that these books are for young adults and I thought that Bella being so dependent on Edward isn't exactly the message I would want my teenage daughter to get...anyway, I digress

    Glad you liked the series...I still have 2 more to go.

  2. i haven't read any of these and honestly never had the desire to. after reading your review, i may have to give them a try. you've almost got me sold!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back . Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets. Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad. Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!! Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night . I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

The Power of Prayer

I wanted to update on a previous post about my uncle ( you can read it here ). In September, he was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He has undergone numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and received results back from his latest PET scan this Monday. Of chief concern was the tumor in the lower lobe of the right lung and the lymph nodes in the center of his chest. The scan showed that there was NO cancer activity in the lymph nodes! All in all, it was a great report! My aunt and uncle, with their grandkids. My prayer list is long for friends and family members struggling with disease and lately, I hear of so many children struggling as well. It's so hard not to question God during these times, but to put complete faith in him - which is much easier said than done! Isaiah 40:31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Another wonderful praise that happe

Pretty Women

I think I've seen the movie Pretty Woman about 100 times and it will always be my favorite. My husband thinks it's the cheesiest movie he has ever seen, but hey, he's not the target audience. So, my tour of Rodeo Dr started at the Reg Bev Will (Pretty Woman fans, you know what I'm talking about). Walking through it, the lobby looked so much smaller than in the movie. We ended up at the back entrance, and plopped down on a bench and acted like we owned the place for a bit while watching for anyone famous. We saw numerous $100 thousand+ cars, and one chick with long blonde hair (only from the back) that had to be famous, but we didn't see her face. Then, we walked down Rodeo, into a couple of stores that I couldn't afford to buy a keychain in, tried on a $1,200 pair of shoes, and walked right into a celebrity sighting. One of my goals while in LA was to see someone famous. And, she may not be on the A-list, but it was still pretty cool. Meet the beautiful Cam
