OK, here it is. I have started reading Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, and I have to admit, I am enjoying it.
After saying for ages that I don’t want to read it, let alone watch the movies, I have now seen Twilight, bits of New Moon and finally decided to read the book. And fortunately the local library had one in, just prior to the school holidays, so I snaffled it up. And I read quite a few pages yesterday, more than I care to admit, and I am suckered in by the writing.
Not that I had anything against Stephanie Meyer, she has a fantastic writing style – which is evidenced by the fact I can’t put the book down. I just have issues with Vampires. Not that I don’t like them, just that I don’t like fuzzy happy “vegetarian” vampires. They aren’t real. Ever since I read Dracula by Bram Stoker, I have struggled to find a vampire book I really enjoyed, but I have to admit, I am enjoying Twilight. To the point where I have just purchased the entire set. Yes, I am a sucker indeed.
I have always been a late bloomer, I was never one to follow a trend, or go with the flow. I liked to do things and try things in my own time. I liked to ease myself into something, I wanted to accept things in my own time. But now that I have, I feel like I have wasted so much time and energy trying to avoid the series. Doh!
So here’s to you Stephanie Meyer, may my writing be as addictive as your’s is. Cheers!
