So half of you are probably ecstatic that I've joined your little fictional world of forbidden teenage love... and the other half of you are like, "Stacy, are you really buying into all that Twilight junk?" And to that I say... yes, I know its for tweens but I'm a stay-at-home mom who is stuck at home a LOT and I do have to take breaks from crafting ya know! Besides, it IS a decent book and I love to read anyway.
Not to say I dont have my gripes about some of it. First, I think Bella is stupid. Period. But like Stacy H said, I guess I have to try and remember how fresh and naive girls at that age can be. Oh, was I really once like that? Most certainly LOL. Second, it's just not believable to me that a hot vampire with centuries of maturity and undoubtedly a huge roster of people he's met along the way that he would really fall in love with some dumb high school girl. Hmmmph. Ok and thirdly, I wont spoil anything but I didnt care much for the second book in the series, New Moon. Lets just say Edward wasnt in it much.
Anyhoo, I am about 1/2 way throught the third book, Eclipse and its OK so far. (A big Thank You to my friend Becky who let me borrow the whole series). Bella is still irking me, haha. And I am actually looking forward to seeing the movie, which I am going to see with the other mommies in my playdate area group. My husband doesnt even wanna hear about it... he teases me, "Oh great, now you'll want me to be more like this dumb Edwin guy or whatever," LOL.
Well let me know what you all think, I'm sure there are some opinions out there! I know this is a crafting blog, but we also wanted to write about other trends and anything else that interests us! And dont forget our first artist giveaway will be announced in a few days!
