One task completed

I had read about the 'Twilight series' so many times that I decided to read it and bought one copy of the first book. I read about characters, their effect on writers on some of the blogs as well. But somehow I couldn't got started with it. I felt it will be like 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' series. I was fan of that series with Angel as male lead character. I never liked Spike. So what is going to be new? Sometimes it happens with me! I get lazy without any reason. But finally I started reading it and finished it in two days. I finished it on the cloudy evening with a beautiful twilight you rarely find in this part of world! It was a great feeling... most awaited monsoon is coming after a long hot summer, after the pre-monsoon thunderous rain the atmosphere is very clean and fresh and I completed the book long decided...

I liked it! Impossible things you believe to be possible. The emotions are so confusing and strong... not in the same contest of blood thirst and all but in real life also you get such strong and confused emotions! These emotions make you weak and you can't take decisions! Or almost take wrong decisions!

I like the sentence in the preface - "When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it's not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end." The story is very catching and language is flowing. Now I will try and read the other two parts.

I have joined the 'Hermit book club'. There I came across the name 'Haruki Murakami'. I found out some short stories written by him on Internet. I read "Landscape with Flatiron". I liked it so my next mission is to find books written by Haruki Murakami and read them. I know I am going a bit slow just now...But I will like to complete this task...

Ah, I feel just like you when it comes to Buffy, Angel and now Twilight!

I went to see the movie when it came out at Christmas from curiosity. I was wondering what all the global fuss was about for a book I'd never even heard of! I enjoyed the film for what it was, but never though of going out and getting the book! Then a friend came to visit me... and was reading the 3rd book (there are 4 by the way) and telling me how she got hooked on them and whomever she got reading them also got hooked... And I figured I might as well give it a shot since this friend (and the others she mentioned) has very good reading tastes.

I finished it in 2 days as well! Ditto the others! They move along at such a quick pace that they just drag you along with them! :o)

I love the Twilight series too. It was a little difficult to get started but by the end you're thirsty for more. The second book has a twist in the beginning that you won't be expecting. Hang in there because in the end (of the series) it will all make sense. Enjoy!

I have to thank you 'just A. girl' as your posts about the characters in this book enspired me to read this book.

I have not yet read the Twilight books. I've heard so much buzz about them, but I usually end up not liking the books that most people rave about. I'm weird that way.

By the way, thanks for becoming a follower on my blog.
