Obsessed, I Mean Dazzled by Twilight! The Effect the Twilight Movie and Saga Have on Me!

Lately I have been writing about Twilight Party Ideas…all the time. I find myself, like many other Twilight movie and book fans, quite obsessed. Perhaps dazzled is a better word…obsession sounds a little over the line, don’t you think. I am very, very dazzled.

When I decided to, finally, read the Stephanie Meyer Saga I was not prepared for what I was about to experience. I still have to remember to breathe again every time I hear, or read, the words “I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him”. I don’t know why the word irrevocably has such an effect on me…but it does. I guess it’s because there is absolutely no doubt of Bella’s intense and unchangeable feelings for Edward. They are…and they will always be. Nothing can ever, ever change it. It’s certainly right at the very top of my favorite Twilight quote list…and that’s a long list, a very long list.

I bought the first novel and went on my merry way home to read it. It seemed like an easy choice and I knew, with my history of “love of vampire romances” I would enjoy reading it. I am, after all, a solid Buffy fan charmed by Angel, and all the others vamp stories I have enjoyed, like Lost Boys and Blade. I began to read it that night…without stopping, finished it in the wee hours of the morning. I can’t remember the last time any book had my undivided attention, like this one did. And for a Vampire Romance story…yes, I do like Vampires…but nonstop reading all night? I was even more surprised when I went out the very next day and bought New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn and eagerly dove into reading them with a vengeance. Four days later I was done. So…four books in five days, Jillian…it’s quick, but not amazing…I say it is amazing. I still continued to go to my full time job for 9 hours a day and I did have to sleep. Given the size of the Twilight novels, I’d certainly say it’s quite a feat. The funny thing is, it’s not an unusual feat if your familiar with the history of this Saga’s readers. Many people are as caught up in the story as I am, either that, or all Twilight readers are speed readers who race through four very large novels in a matter of days. I don’t think that’s it.

Another thing I am confused about is why I haven’t read “Host” by Stephanie Meyer. I am quite satisfied with the Twilight Saga (though I do want more). If it’s not about Edward, Bella and the rest of the Cullens, I’m not interested. I am sure I will read it at some point, I just don’t have to right now. I did, however, read the chapters I found online of “Midnight Sun”, the book that we will never get to complete unless Stephanie changes her mind about completing it. I guess I am in a Twilight Saga fog…and I’m not alone with that aspect of this obsession…I mean, this state of dazzle. I forgot, I don’t want to say obsession…I’d rather stay in denial regarding the state of my involvement with Edward and the rest of the characters.
