I had actually been wanting to read Twilight for awhile and I was finally able to get my hands on a borrowed copy. (Thank you Jenn!)
Let me first say, that I wasn't a skeptic of the books. I heard the storyline, and I loved it. A teen novel with elements of vampires and romance was all I read growing up. Um, RL Stine anyone? Yeah, I almost always had a Fear Street book in my backpack. Never the Goosebumps series, those were for losers.
But lets get back to Twilight, I started reading last night, and just finished. It wasn't so much that I couldn't put it down, I actually did, but I am a speed reader and I was able to pick it up between sickness induced naps.
The verdict: I liked it. I wish I could say that I loved it, but I would be lying. The last 100 (or so)pages after the baseball game were awesome, but up until that point I found a lot of Edward and Bella's conversations repetitive. I get that he was revealing new and scary stuff to her all the time, but I hated that he asked her every other page if she was scared.
I won't continue on with my review, because those of you that read it already have your opinion that will surely not be changed by mine, and those of you that haven't read it are sick about hearing about it. I know, I know.
However, I will continue reading as soon as I can borrow the next book. (Kristal, are you done yet???) I have a feeling that maybe I will get more involved in the story and change my like to love.
