Swoon! Where do I start!? I had put off reading these books, even after my two teenage daughters insisted I'd love them, but finally did it, and I haven't looked back! I started Twilight about 2 weeks ago, and just finished Eclipse last night. I'm hesitating on starting Breaking Dawn, because I just don't want it to be over! Of course, I'll probably then start the series all over again anyway, but there's nothing like that first time reading a book that you know will become a favorite.
I'm totally Team Edward. Every time the book describes his cold lips going in for a kiss, I get tingles! What's with me!!?? I think what draws young adult women, and heck, most other adult women, into this series is that Edward and Bella's relationship epitomizes everything sweet, passionate, and romantic about the early stages of any relationship. With us humans, that part dies down eventually, and the relationship becomes comfortable. But with E and B, it's all about the kissing and the foreplay and the great conversations. It's like they "imprinted" on each other.
And yeah, I wouldn't hesitate to become a vampire if I had someone like Edward to spend eternity with!
Of course, my daughters said this series was better than Harry Potter, but I have to draw the line there. Harry is amazing and epic, and there's just no comparison.
I have to laugh at the Harry Potter thing. I hear so many people compare the two. And tons of teens feel like they can only be a true fan of one or the other and not both. They are just way too different to compare.
