Seeing as I live and breathe crime fiction, I find myself stumped when I realize that I have been sucked into the Twilight Saga written by Stephenie Meyer. I had never imagined myself reading the books, and I blame my eldest daughters for introducing me to them.
Even though I enjoy reading the novels, I am more fascinated by the movies. The movies are like a vampire soap opera that I cannot tear myself away from. I was literally on the edge of my seat as part one of Breaking Dawn ended.
Yes, I am aware that I am two years too late for the whole “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob” obsession, but that is okay with me. I am for “Team Charlie” anyway.
As if this silly craze could not get any worse, my awesome husband purchased all four books for my birthday. I find myself being impatient while reading one book to get to the next.
So, thank you very much girls for getting mommy hooked. After this, it is back to reading and writing about crime.
Please tell me, am I the only non-teen who has gotten sucked into this “Twilight Mania?”
