Twilight – Breaking Dawn

Stephenie Meyer has done it again. She forced me to give up a few hours of my life and devour yet another of her books.

Breaking Dawn took me under 12 hours to read. 12 hours. Truth be told, I believe that it took me about less than 6-7 hours, but with sleep, my family and nature calls interrupting me, I’m not completely sure.

My mother-in-law gave me Twilight for Christmas 2007. I originally had it on my Amazon wish-list as a reminder to get it for Meg. The reviews I read about it mentioned vampires. Vampires=Meg. Since I passed out the link to my wish list, people naturally assumed that everything there was for me.

So the book sat for 3-4 months before I picked it up. Twilight was devoured in the same amount of time. Within a week, I had both New Moon and Eclipse purchased and read. When The Host was released, I quickly bought that as well.

While it did take me longer to read, The Host was just as enjoyable.

All of her novels are written in the first person, something that I’ve always had an extreme dislike about. There’s just something about her style and the story itself that made me fall in love with her world.

As much as I love them though, I wasn’t comfortable enough to go to the release parties in town. Can we say To Catch a Predator anyone?

That’s exactly what I need, get arrested for being a 29 year old man waiting in a store surrounded and outnumbered 100:1 by teenaged girls. Right. ๐Ÿ˜›

The night I finished it, I promptly visited the website to get the playlist for this book and was amazed again at Stephenie’s selection. My wife and I were impressed. She was so impressed, that she’s become interested in the book herself.

Amazing, I think she would be interested and I end up falling in love with it and she just gives it the door. ๐Ÿ™‚
