Not me...Twilight Edition!

I'm joining in MckMama's blog carnival once again this week, this one's been a long time coming. I just finished the 4th book in the Twilight series last night. For the past 8 weeks or so I've been spending almost every "free" moment with Bella, Edward, Charlie, Jacob, Esme, Carlisle, Nessie and the other passel of people from Forks and beyond. I hereby would like to confess all the things I did not do while reading these books:

I did not in the beginning consider if vampires really did exist, nope not me!

I did not dream of these people more than once...the night I read about the wedding I did not dream that I was an attendant at said wedding, no not me, that would be silly.

I did not look to my student teacher last week and say, " I wish you were a vampire, because you could just read my mind." No not me...hey it would save a lot of time!

Speaking of said student teacher, I absolutely did not read any of the books for a few minutes at the end of the day when she was wrapping everything up, nope not me!

When on a field trip last week to Old Salem, listening to the Gunsmith talk about things hunted with guns a few hundred years ago, I did not look at my friend who introduced me to Twilight and say, " or mountain lions." Nope not me...although I'm not sure she got it.

When on a field trip to Floyd, Va with my Valentine last weekend, I did not find a magazine called "Bella" take the magazine back to GSO then make my two sweet friends at school who are fans, "Bella Girl" posters with the words from the magazine.

I absolutely do not recommend reading these books because you won't enjoy them one bit, I sure did not!

Thanks so much KC for letting me borrow your books, thanks to my peeps at home for letting me escape from life to read, read, read!

Whew, all better now!

Oh my gosh this sounds like me! I totally dreamed about the characters and I wondered if vampires were real. I also asked my fiance if you could just be a vampire like Edward for me.

I love, love these books! I totally lost all track of obligations while reading them too!

Great *Twilight* Not Me!

I did not just finish up the 4th book this weekend either...and I too did not dream about the characters, or talk to my husband about the characters as though they were real! Great not me!

I love Twilight too! My friends & I maintain there is nothing wrong with loving a fictional character. I even have a "Team Edward" shirt!
