The Twilight rage

 - by Sarah Lipoff

I have a shocking confession to make. For those of you that know me, it might be a bit surprising to hear. But, I can’t keep this bottled up inside shaking around anymore.

I read the Twilight saga. Each and every book. All four of the tween scream series.

At first I was just going to read them for research. Everyone was talking about it. They were all gushing and swooning over what great books they were – how they couldn’t DO anything because they had to read, read, read the Twilight books. Seriously? These were grown women talking like this. I decided I had to read them – at least just the first one.

I picked up Twilight on a Monday. By Friday I had read the entire saga – all of them.

I wasn’t really sure why I read them. The plot line was pretty pathetic, the language full of crappy descriptive words glorifying the dead calling them “beautiful” (this word was used lots) vampires and it wasn’t hard to figure out what was going to happen next. But, I continued to read and read and read until there was no more. I can’t explain it. I can’t at all.

So, with the second installment of the Twilight saga coming out in theaters (New Moon) I am slightly conflicted. I haven’t made the foray into the movies yet, and not sure if I want to. But, it is tempting. It sure is. I’m just don’t know if I want Twilight to suck up any more of my brain time that I would rather spend enjoying better things.

Now, where can I rent Twilight on Blu Ray?
