Has anyone seen "Better Off Dead" where the mom and dad are talking about how Lane is in love with Beth and his mom says, "Obsessed?" and then Lane opens his closet and every hanger has Beth's face on it? Well, I seem to have become a bit obsessed about this Twilight series. Seriously! I don't know how else to describe it. I read it super fast, not doing anything else in the meantime. I let children go wild "just until the end of this chapter." I dreamed about werewolves. And I cannot stop thinking about the books. This is not my usual reaction to things that I read, but I just can't seem to move on. The funny thing is (and it's a bit relieving, actually) is that I am not the only one. There are blogs, websites, people at church, family...everyone! Do other books cause this kind of commotion? There are many books that I LOVE, but I don't feel so emotionally connected to them as I do this teenage fiction. I feel just a bit silly! I want her to be done writing them and I want to have seen all the movies so I can move on with my life. It's really a love-hate relationship. With a book.
