Twilight

I’ve been sucked in.  Pun intended of course.  Utterly, and completely SUCKED. RIGHT. IN.  I recently bought Twilight on Saturday, and read it in about 6 or 7 hours. I couldn’t put it down. Then, I was disappointed. Not in the book of course, who could be disappointed in THAT? No, I was disappointed because I didn’t buy the second and third books in the series when I was at Barnes and Noble. WHAT WAS I THINKING? After Church on Sunday I broke the rules and bout New Moon and Eclipse, finished Eclipse Sunday, as well as half of New Moon, and by Monday afternoon I was done. And sorely disappointed again. Not because of the last book. But because August is SO. FAR. AWAY. That’s when the final book comes out. *sigh* In the meantime, Stephenie Meyer, the author, has a new series coming out in May called The Host (just go visit the website, it’s easier than individual links LOL http://www.stepheniemeyer.com) that looks really good. To get me by, though, I’ve begun reading the sereies again, and started Twilight yesterday, intending to savour the taste, reading slowly, not letting myself get so caught up in it. However, I finished Twilight last night and am just a little past the halfway point in New Moon. Oh well, it was a nice try 🙂

I’ve been thinking a lot about music in regards to this book. I’ve noticed a few other Twilight junkies (what else could I call us? We’ve found our choice of heroin, so to speak (and those who’ve read the books will get that :))) have some Twilight playlists. The one I saw most recently had a playlist going chapter by chapter. I’m not quite up to that point yet. Maybe by the third read I can get more organized. Mine is more along the lines of incidents that happen in the book that make me think of certain songs. Her goes:

Hero – Enrique Iglasias — I chose this as somewhat of an over all theme song for Edward and Bella. Every time I hear it on my iPod all I can think of is those two!

Like a Prayer – Madona — I chose this one because it reminded me of Edward’s absence during New Moon, and how she could still hear his voice warning her. As I listened to the words of the song, I thought they went rather well with that.

All You Wanted – Michelle Branch — This one made me think of Jacob and how much he loves Bella. How he just wants to take her away and fill the void that was Edward.

I have more, but I have to get ready to go to my knitting class (block of the month) so I’ll have to finish up sharing my list later 🙂
