ANYONE who is reading this post who hasn't picked up this book for whatever reason must do it now. i command you. last summer when my sister-in-law, Mandy, handed me a book with a black cover and started going on and on about how great it was, i was intrigued. then she said the word. the dreaded silly word that still makes me slightly embarrassed to be such a fan of this book... vampires. suddenly i was bummed -- now i had to read this crazy book so i could lie to Mandy about how cool i thought it was so i wouldn't hurt her feelings by saying, "VAMPIRES!? LAME!!!!" i even made super fun of it to my friend, maria (who is now as big a fan as i am - muahaha). by the way, don't know why i was so skeptical. hello- Harry Potter is my boyfriend!! and what's more lame than wizards and crap? anyway, read it. i double-dog dare you. HP too, if you haven't picked that up (aka you've been living under a rock. the really gross, smelly kind).
also, re-reading this book got me curious about the movie goings-on, and i came across this sweet little sneak peak at the Twilight movie (comes out this December). ch-ch-ch-ch-check it out here...http://www.mtv.com/overdrive/?id=1585900&vid=226476
ALSO i realized this morning that her new book (not in the twilight series) THE HOST comes out this week! double joy! i declare this week Stephenie Meyer Week. get on board or i will send a scary vampire after you. i mean it.
