So, y'all know that I went through a rabid Twilight phase (read: obsession) earlier this year, right?
I will say this: the stories are highly entertaining. Take Harry Potter and mix in some VC Andrews minus the incest and that might give you a good idea of what to expect.
They were PERFECT when Tim was away for the winter. Perfect. I would read them and get all teenangsty and then actually be glad Tim wasn't around to deal with the crazy they gave me. My mood would swing back and forth between total love and devotion to Tim and anger that he wasn't Edward Cullen and therefore also not lusting for my blood.
Ladies, show of hands: how many of you who read the series wished you could date a vampire? Tell the truth!
Anyhoozy, I came across these awesome cartoons the other day by Lucy Knisley via double happiness. The first cartoon does a super good job of summing up how I, and surely countless others, felt about reading the series. Although, honestly, I geeked out with the books and pretty much owned my love for them from the beginning. I had no choice -- they were that good!
The second set of cartoons is the one you should really check out. All of you -- Twilight lovers and haters will get something out of these.
- For those of you who love Twilight and Edward and Bella and the crew: these 16 panels pretty much manage to sum up the entire series (how many thousands of pages?) in a highly amusing way. You will be tickled, I assure you.
- For those of you who hate Twilight and think it's dumb and overrated and poorly written and blahblahblah: this will give you some new material for your arsenal. It makes Twilight sound absurd, even to me.
- For those of you who just don't get it and will never read the books: this will sum up the series quickly for you. You still won't get it, but at least you'll get some answers as to what everyone is so crazy about.
- The final category: for those of you who haven't YET read the books, but are planning to: DON'T CLICK THE LINK! It will give away too much and spoil it. Consider yourself warned. Oh -- and go buy the books. And clear your calendar!
Finally, for those Twilight fans who have been under a rock for the past few weeks, here's the trailer for the 2nd movie in the series, New Moon. I think this one must be better than the first, right? It must.
