Fantasy Land| Twilight (forced upon)

I have been in fantasy land these last few weeks....ah sweet fantasy land.

Life is good but sometimes when it is bad ,it is good to get your mind away from it all by reading or doing something productive....I read alot...but lately I have been sucked in by the internet and all I read is stuff that is posted online.....just me and the monitor.

But lately I have been getting bored , not of what people write but of the day to day ritual that I developed of turning on the computer and going to read off of some of my favorite websites.

The Little pumpkin forced me and I do mean FORCED me to read the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.

I reluctantly took the book from her and promised that I would read and I tried but was not fully into it(For the fist few chapters)....then one day I realized that I could not wait to read and that I was slowly putting the book in front of my face instead of the monitor and that I was enjoying what I read, I could not wait to get to the next book and the next book and the next.

I started reading at the City Terrace Library from an early age(I wrote about somewhere in the City Terrace Label on the side bar) The Anne Rice Interview with a Vampire book and because of it I read all the Anne Rice books , I kept reading all thru my teenage years and when I read the books from the Twilight series I was reminded of those days .

Yes Twilight is different that any of the Anne Rice vampire books and the vampires are totally different, the concept way different.

but ,The Cullens are really Similar to the way Louis is, does not like to drink human blood and that is one of the things that I really thought was original....also the story is really good.

The love story also reminded me of Louis and of how he would would probably be if we was the one to fall in love with a Human but there are other things there that attracted me to the books....The sense of family....the total loyalty that they have for each other...and their need of each other.

Yes I liked the books so much that I was kinda sad when I got to the last book because I felt that I had to go back to reality and deal with the everyday challenges that can't be solved by fighting or standing your ground with the ones that you love.....because real life does not work that way...in real life.....the bad guys win and the honorable things are not considered honorable but weak....and what happens when people misinterpret honor or kindness for weakness , they use against you to destroy you.

But that is how life goes, I am working on some good stuff for this blog and will hopefully post it online within the next week or two.

If you are still around , I appreciate it.

Twilight! YAY. Now something I can comment about! LOL Ok, you got sucked in, right? Dude. I could not get my husband to read it so I got my sister hooked on it so I wouldn't be the only crackhead, staying up until 3 in the morning reading. He at least saw the movie with me. I think the three books after Twilight are much better, better written and more engaging. Wait until you get to the last book, that is the best one by far.

And oh, did you know that Stephenie Meyer put up her rough draft on her website called Midnight Sun, which is Twilight from Edward's perspective? Check it out, it's actually more interesting than Bella's version, I think. I was just gonna blog about that, too.

I loved all of Anne Rice's vampire books, I read them all through college. I agree, they are much more darker than Meyer's books.

Thanks for posting,

Sucked in is just about the perfect description for what happened to me.

I was trying so hard to hate the books but I lost the fight.

I saw the movie before I read the book and thought it was good, but after I read the book it made the movie even better because you know about the stuff that they did not put in the movie.

I read all the books and really liked Midnight Sun online from her website..I think his perspective makes the movie even that much better..she needs to get that one finished.

That is a good one to blog about.

I liked all the Anne Rice books but that last ones before she started writting about other stuff was a little too fluffie for me...But the first three Vampire chronicles will always be my favorite.
