The books that started it all

I barely know anything about the Twilight saga when I invited Jeff to watch the movie "Twilight" last year. I must admit, it was the blogs that I've read and prodding from friends that had talked me into giving it a try. Hubby's male co-worker told him that he and his wife got hooked on the series and literally could not put the book down. The books were owned by his teenage daughter and as parents, they just probably want to know what stuff their kids were reading. Anyway, so I thought, well, we should watch the movie and see if it's our thing. Lo and behold, we loved it! Like my other favorite, the Harry Potter series, I thought the books must be more detailed and entertaining than the movies, so I didn't waste much time, I ordered the books over the internet. I can't wait to start reading them. I don't know if we'll have the time but we'll make time for it, that's for sure. This is gonna be our next big thing.

I saw those books in the bookstore and had no idea what they were. Now I get it. I had heard of Twilight but I assumed the books were named Twilight too.

I have yet to read these books or see the movie, they are on my to do list. Audiobook versions I will have to get to listen to someday.

Sometimes I find reading the book makes the movie seem less exciting. They just can't put everything into the movie that they do in the book, and some of the good stuff is lost.
