95 books down, 141 days to go!

Hey All! Wow! I was given permission by my mom (finally!) to read the twilight series. I read Twilight and New Moon. So, I guess you all know what happens in these. Bella falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen, when she moves to Forks to be with her Dad and befriends Edward's vamp family. She also almost gets herself killed in the process of being with him and gets bit by a vamp but not long enough for her to be drained and die, or turn into a vamp. And in the second book, her friend Jacob turns out to be one of the vampires' mortal enemies, a werewolf. In the second, Edward leaves Bella "for her safety" and Bella goes insane without him and does the most reckless things she can possibly think of (motorcycling, cliff diving, etc.) because she hallucinates Edward warning her to be safe. Bella is a wreck, loses her friends (except for Jacob of course), and can't sleep without the nightmares breaking into her head. But Jake seems to warm her and save her from herself, so Bella spends a lot of time with him and in return Jacob falls in love with her. Ouch. Also, when Bella cliff dives, Edwards "sister" (and Bella's Best Friend) sees her future - that's her special vamp power, Edwards is mind reading- and thinks she just jumping off a cliff to kill herself. Word spreads to Edward, who fled to Italy, and Edward decides to go to the Vulturi (the royal "rulers" that inforce vampire laws) and beg to die. When this doesn't work, he tries to exposes himself to humans and almost get himself and Bella killed when Alice finds Bella after 6+ months and brings her to Italy to save Edward.
So that's the scoop. Now I'm onto a coupla books including the 3rd book, Eclipse.

Anatidaephobia is the fear that somewhere in the world, there is a duck watching you.

Love, Lizzy S.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!! The day finally arrived. SOOOOOO? What did you think of the first two Twilight books, Elizabeth? Are you as smitten as the rest of us were?

    Anatidaephobia? That has to be the lamest phobia. (pun intended) Eric got bit by a duck when he was a toddler. Wonder if that explains everything.....
