I am totally out of my Little Women obsession and now love vampires. My husband and I began watching the HBO show New Blood ( this is an ADULT show!) and started up my life long love of vampire stuff.
I am not sure why but I get slightly irritated when *I* discover something and then it becomes popular a year later. For example when Twilight first came out I thought- wow what a great idea and gave it to a couple of girls as gifts.. and now of course the book is huge. I feel personally responsible for the success of Seinfeld ;-) This is not an attractive quality and not sure why I feel compelled to admit it.
New Blood the TV series features Sookie Stackhouse and she falls in love with a vampire and I adore it!
I talk about it more than a hausfrau should.. My girlfriend is OBSESSED with the Twilight Series and has been trying to get me to read them. These books are pretty teen oriented and when reading it is did seem like I was 15 again ( not a bad feeling!) but it did get to be a bit much after a while.
You will be hearing a lot about this book as the movie is coming out November 21,2008 and I think it will well tweens.
Trailer for Twilight Movie
I can see why the series of Twilight books are so popular. Filled with romance and humour and scary vampires. Maybe the romance is a bit over the top and right off the bat there are a few holes in the story (pun intended….)
I was looking to find the next title in the series and wound up on the author. Stephanie Meyers website and read about how she began her journey into publishing. She was a stay at home mom and had the idea for her book after a vivid dream and wrote the book her kids swimming lessons, activies and late at night when they slept. I LOVE her.
Her store is interesting and the author comes across so fresh and natural- and VERY real. Wish she lived next store as I think we could be friends and hang out.. and discuss vampire plot lines.
