About three things I am absolutely positive.
First, I don't read paranormal romance, particularly romances that feature vampires.
Second, there's a part of me — and this part is totally dominant — that would never touch a romance that didn't contain sex.
And third, I am unconditionally and irrevocably obsessed with the TWILIGHT series.
Quick! I need an intervention!
I really don't know what to say about this, except that's how it is. It started one winter night when I was really feeling down and needed to see a movie. Nothing was playing — as always seems to be the case; Hollywood sucks when it comes to making movies I want to watch — so I decided to see Twilight. I knew nothing about it except that it was a sexless vampire YA romance, and those three words — "sexless," "YA" and "vampire" — indicated I would hate it.
And I loved it! WTF??? I assure you, no one was more surprised than I.
Last night, I was up till 3:30 AM reading New Moon, the second book in the trilogy. My sister sent me an email at about 3 AM reminding me that I won't keep my fans happy by reading Stephanie Meyer's books. But these books are like crack cocaine. One hit, and I can't get enough.
Those of you who love this series, what is it about the books and the movie (besides Rob Pattinson) that makes us love it so much? For those of you who've read it and can't abide it, what turns you off?
And will you all still be my friends now that you know how I've spent the past two days? D'oh!
