I just might scream.

Well it happened.

I started reading the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.

Let me say two things about her writing. First, I have never read anything dark like this. It is not my style and never has been. The darkest that I've ever read is Harry Potter. So if some of you think that Twilight isn't dark, take another look at my comparison and then roll on. However I am definitely going to check out this new appreciation for dark literature. The second thing that I like about her is that she is a clean writer. The movie that is set to come out in December will most likely be rated PG-13 or R, but not b/c of the harsh words. More than likely it will be due to the killer fight scene at the end of the book. But my point is that she doesn't have to use curse words to make her point. You know how mad a character is by the imagery described in the book. (Mrs. Walker my high school AP English teacher should be extremely proud of me right now.) Overall, consider me a very impressed duck. I'm "dazzled" if you will. ;)

Now onto the part where I wanted to scream...

Typically when I read a series, I buy the first two books at least. This is due to the fact that I read so quickly. Well silly me didn't buy the second book of the Twilight series b/c it was thick. I should have known better due to my experience with HArry Potter, but not everyone learns their lesson the first time. So yesterday, I realize that Twilight will soon come to a close and I will be left with some ridiculous cliffhanger eating at my insides. Yes it is that dramatic for me. I bee-bop on home. I called Brandon and told him that I needed to go to Wal-Mart so I could buy some more of the series. He asked why I wasn't stopping at Hastings and I told him b/c Wal-Mart was cheaper. I know that's horrible b/c I hate giving my money to that place, but I could buy two and three for 10 bucks!! I make it home. We grab a bite to eat, stop at the bank and head to Wal-Mart. We had a few other things to pick up before we made our way to the book section.

Finally we arrived and there was no Stephenie Meyer books to be found.

Not a one.

I mean they didn't even have Breaking Dawn!

I looked at Brandon and said, "I just might scream."
And he said without any hesitation, "I know."

So today on my lunch break, I will be heading over to Hastings to see if they have the books. I'm not wasting any more time. I will be buying the current remainder of the series.

Have a dazzling day, y'all.

P.S. Jessica Simpson's "Come on Over" is cute. And her new country album comes out the day before my birthday. In case you were wondering. That's quite an interesting coincidence, don't you think?

I started reading this on the honeymoon. I have never read anything dark either - but I really like it.
I haven't fnished it yet, but I have been thinking how I need to go buy the second one so I won't be left in suspense!
I never read Harry Potter - I am glad to finally be on the "book band wagon" :-)
Have you seen thepreviews for the movie? Omigosh. It looks fantastic!
