I apologize in advance. But I just can't take it anymore. Two years ago, I and hundreds and thousands of other people had fallen in love with a book series. I've been an avid reader of all kinds of books since I was a teen. Love stories, happy stories, mysteries, books of self-discovery and a hard back as well as paperback collection of the Harry Potter books live contently on my book shelf.
There is something about getting lost in another world, whether it's fiction or real life, and getting so caught up in that world that it follows you throughout your day and every day life. And yes, I have no trouble admitting that the books that grab my heart strings the fastest and stay with me long after I'm done reading the last page are the ones about love. Not just between two people, but love in general. I've never been so overwhelmed by a book such as The Time Traveler's Wife. The underlying story of how a woman waits for the one man she couldn't help loving, her entire life was so heartbreakingly beautiful..I think I wept for a good hour after I closed the book. Seriously. That story is my favorite to this day - yes, even above Harry Potter. I think a lot of what I feel for and about a book also comes from where I am at in my life while reading a certain book. Or I at least always always personalize the story or relate it back to a similar event happening or that has happened in my life.
Once I read a book like that, I love to go back and reread favorite passages, pages, or even chapters over and over again just to relive the book a little bit. Now here's my dilema.
I am SO OVER all the Twilight Saga drama. It is over done, overrated, and is starting to become purely annoying. The movies, although New Moon was a much better success than Twilight, never even came close to being as good as (some of) the books...I love love love Kristen Stewart but she is a wretched Bella, and I my hopes for the next two are so low to begin with, that my growing annoyance with the whole thing is starting to overpower the love I had for those books. Maybe I'm being melodramatic myself, but I am also one of those people that will refuse to adapt to the growing technology that has created electronic books. The kindle and whatever else those evil things are called are just too much for me. There is nothing special about the keys, a flat screen, and pushing a button to get to the next page. But the smell of a new book, crisp new pages or even better..old fragile pages, bent and worn covers because you've read the book too many times..mmhhh :) what's not to love???!
So who knows. Maybe I'm just a little whiny. Maybe I'm just a little sour puss..but there was a point to my blog. That I am sick and tired of all the Twilight Saga drama!! Which is not normal for me. I got all my books at midnight, I was at all the midnight showings so far..but at this point, I don't want all that obsession, drama, and midnight showing bs to come back into my life. I'm just over it. It's so over done and at the end of the day, there is nothing special anymore about Edward and Bella and I've totally jumped sides and would pick Jacob :P And that has nothing to do with the fact that Jacob's abs are so much prettier than Edward's. He's simply warmer..and I hate being cold ;)
