1) Déjà vu.
Remember your first love? Heart pulsing, palm sweating, tongue tied first love?
You know who I’m talking about. That guy. You’ll go from current, stable self to a tittering teen in 0-60 pages flat.
2) You need to sleep.
I finished all four (not thin) books in eight day. EIGHT, people. And I have a toddler. I swear the books themselves turned me into a vampire. Ok, I just googled it and it’s 3,092 pages. Seriously. That’s a problem.
3) You are a grown up.
These main characters are teenagers. Not even legal adults for the entire first book. (Well OK, Edward’s immortal and, like 108, but he looks 17.) You are a grown person. With a 401k and a mortgage and a child and… well the need for an escape…
4) You will not find yourself in a packed theater from 7:45 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. watching back to back movies with hundreds of other squealing girls…. Yeah. We weren’t women last night. We were girls. Bouncing, blushing, squealing girls.
And I LOVED IT!!
Stephanie Meyer, thank you.
And friends who sucked me in, thank you even more for a fun, frivolous night.
...Can't wait 'til June for the next one!
