I know, I know! Unoriginal! I love Stephenie Meyer's writing...shocker, right? Well, here's my Twilight story:
One day I was on Facebook, reading through everyone's status update when I saw a post from a friend (Brooke, you know I'm talking about you!) saying, "I can't wait for Breaking Dawn!" I had no idea what Breaking Dawn was, so, of course, I googled it. It said, "Harry Potter, move over! Twilight is the next big thing!" This intrigued me.
I don't know why, because I have never really read
I have never before, and have not since, been so captivated by a story! It was all I could think about for weeks! I went on StephenieMeyer.com and read all the short stories and character sketches and MIDNIGHT SUN....which I think is my favorite, and just couldn't get enough. So, I read them all again. I soon became known at church as "The Twilight Pusher". I have successfully "dealt" the series to 20+ people. I even went out and bought an extra copy of Twilight because people kept borrowing my first copy and I couldn't live without it. After finishing them again, I needed something to placate my withdrawals, but what?
I was hesitant to read The Host, because it sounded really strange. But, I loved Stephenie's writing so much that I took a chance. It was amazing! (read Amy's review) I think part of me even liked it better than Twilight! And....they're making a movie, as well as a possible sequel!
The thing is, if it weren't for Stephenie Meyer, I would probably still be going through life not reading, and missing all the other fantastic books out there! So, although my children, and my husband probably don't thank you, Stephenie.....I thank you! And all the other YA authors out there should thank you, too, because they're making a lot of $$$ off of me because of you! I'm like an addict, trying to get another book fix!
Much Love and Appreciation!
