i finished the third book in the saga of bella and edward this morning. which is probably a good thing, since reading them made me adopt a somewhat vampirish existence. i ate brunch on thursday at 10:30 and a snack about 2:30. but then i started reading before eating dinner and i just read and read and stayed up all night (til 6:30 friday morning) to finish new moon. and of course after my four or so hours of sleep friday morning (wearing an eye mask to keep out the light–first time and it worked great), i had to start the third one. i didn’t eat again until a snack around 4:00 and dinner around 6:30 on friday. and after my eight hour trip to l.a. (to see pink martini in concert, which was fabulous), i stayed up til 3:30 reading more. apparently i was obsessed enough with edward to adopt his sleepless, foodless lifestyle…

they’re not great literature. but they were great reads. if you want a little vampire romance (and even if you’re not sold on the whole vampire thing), they’re definitely fun. a more extensive review to come (when it’s not 12:45 a.m. after two nights of little sleep).

    I loved the first one ~ I couldn’t put it down… I was disappointed in the ending (since it didn’t answer my questions). Apparently, she is working on the same story from Edwards point of view… I think that should be interesting! So, for you… Edward or Jacob?

    edward. definitely edward. :) she has the first chapter of the parallel novel available on her website. i think the book is called midnight sun. have you read two and three yet? i didn’t like two quite as much, but three was every bit as good as the first one.

    I’m going to start these as soon as I finish the HP series. My roommate and her friend has the three books between the two of them, and they both were excited that I’m going to read them.

    They are so consuming. I am afraid to start Eclipse because I know it will take over my life and I’ll have to wait a long time for number 4.

    yeah. it will take over your life. and i hate the whole year-long wait thing. but i couldn’t keep from reading. i think of the three of them, eclipse has the best balance of suspense and romance. fun fun.
