obsessed.: Twilight

This week's obsessed. should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me.
I first picked up Twilight on a whim while in Barnes and Noble, pre-worldwide ridiculousness. It sat on my shelf for a while, until I decided to give it a go. From the first few pages, I was hooked. I read it all in one night. I went out and got New Moon and Eclipse the next day, and spent the next two nights reading both of them. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the fourth book in the series, Breaking Dawn, which wasn't set to release for a couple of months.

I've met some of the greatest friends in my life through this obsession. And although there are times where I've questioned my own sanity for loving such books, I still love them. And I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Today's obsessed. is in honor of the midnight release of the movie version of my favorite book in the series.

Tonight's plans include a third-annual pre-premiere party and then a midnight showing in a theater full of rabid fans.

Can't wait.


  1. Also going to a midnight showing! Only two hours to go! :)

  2. Hope you had a great time! I've still got a few more hours to wait. :)

  3. There really is something about those books that are a little addictive.

    Silly enough I read the first book after seeing Twilight themed crafts on a website called Craftster.org.

    I didn't make it to the midnight show, but I plan on seeing this week.

    Also, have you read Meyers other book, The Host? Its equally fantastic.

  4. Silvana-Actually, Craftster led me to your blog. (I loved your wedding shoes!) And, I think we were in a Twilight swap together a while back. I'm idignerfherders on the site. :)

    I hope you enjoy Eclipse as much as I did. They just keep getting better with the movies. Although I might be biased; Eclipse is my fav. of the books.

    The Host is great. I'd love to see more from that set of characters.
