Noticed I’ve been quiet lately? I’m conflicted to admit this to you all because I’m both proud and ashamed at the same time, but I’ve read almost 2000 pages of books in the past 8 days.
About two weeks ago, I threw Stephanie Meyer’s book, Twilight (book one) into my Amazon shopping cart. I’ve seen a lot of Moms talking about the series online and I’ve been looking for an excuse to check it out for awhile.
So the book came, I started it a few days later and I haven’t stopped. I was halfway through book one when I ordered the next three (the series “concludes” with Breaking Dawn, book four, which came out in August of 2008. Although apparently she’s working on some additional books of the story told from other characters perspectives.). I had to order them for 2-day shipping because I was so afraid I’d be bookless.
Anyway, check it out. The books are written for “young adults,” aimed at the tween and teen market and the series is vampire fiction. I know these books have been compared to the Harry Potter series – they’re actually quite different in my opinion (other than the books are aimed at the younger crowd and both involve the supernatural)
Leave us a comment if you’ve read or are reading and are obsessed too!


  1. Obsessed doesn’t even begin to cover it! I read all four in 3 days.

  2. They are a huge hit in my mom’s group right now. I am embarrassed to admit that I totally ignored DS while reading them. I don’t think he’s ever watched so much tv! But I couldn’t stop reading them!
    I still like Harry Potter more, but these are a close second.

  3. I’ve read ’em all. I introduced a couple of my girlfriends to the series also and they’re totally obsessed also. Can’t wait for the movie!

  4. Ahhh! Love these books. A friend told me I had to read them and she was right! I am on book 3 (Eclipse) and can’t put them down!

  5. i’m only half way through the first book and i admit i too am totally obsessed. i love anything with a hint of the supernatural so it is no surprise that this one is a winner for me. can’t wait to discuss how much we love them!

  6. I love these books!

    I love the Twilight books. I read all four of the books in a week and a half, I spent 12 hour reading more than one day. I was like addicted to it I would imagine
    like being addicted to crack. As far as I’m concerned the Characters are real. You’re probably reading this thinking wow she is a freak! But read the book you’ll see what I mean

  8. My niece turned me on to these books and let me tell I LUV them.

  9. I LOVE the Twilight series, awesome books:) Im quite obsessed with anything vampire related so I had to have them, read them all in 3 days. I cannot wait for the movie in December!

  10. OMG! I’m totally OBSESSED over this series. I did the same thing, started Twilight and before I finished I picked up the other books. I love all the characters and they feel so real almost like I could sit and talk to them (but that would make me really crazy!) I can’t wait for the movie.
