Man, I love Twilight.

After reading review after review from my fellow mommies, I had to dig in. I ordered all 4 books at once. When I received them, I dove right in. 1 week and 3 days later I was finished with them. All 4 of them. And I was sad. I honestly did not want it to be over. So what do you do? What did I do? I started reading them all over again. I even read Midnight Sun (the unfinished book by Stephenie Meyers) that tells Twilight (the first book) from Edward's point of view. I read that one, right along with the first one. I'd read a chapter of each one at a time. I enjoyed each, thoroughly. And I can honestly say that I haven't been this hyped about books in a really long time.

So I am now nearing the end of book 4, Breaking Dawn. Once again, I will miss it. I just don't want it to end. Apparently I am not the only one who feels this way. There are endless fan websites set up for these books, and of course, unless you have been living under a rock, then you know there is a movie coming out too.

I am desperately hoping that I can find a great deal on my plane tickets so that we can fly back to the states just in time for the release of the movie. That would be so much fun! Wish me luck! In the meantime, I have taken this quiz, to see which character I am most like. As it turns out, I am closest to an Alice Cullen. Sweet. I liked her a lot in the books.

I'm a Alice! I found out through Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!

Here is the trailer for the movie. (Mom, watch it. It's only 2 minutes long.)

OK, now for an update on our time situation. Today we set our clocks ahead one hour. I set this blog post to publish at midnight, but since we are losing an hour, that time does not exist. So I had to change it to 1 o'clock a.m. We were keeping time right along with eastern time zone, but now we are 1 hour ahead of eastern and 4 hours ahead of Mountain standard time (Arizona) for my family members. I'm not liking that at all. There are only a certain number of hours in the day that we can talk, especially with the difference. That kind of bites.

Unless of course, all the other time zones changed today too. But I don't know that for sure, I only know what happened here. Anyone want to clue me in if their times have changed? Thanks!

I had never heard of the Twilight books, either... until I kept reading all of my blogs that just raved about them. So I did pretty much the same thing... read the 1st book in about 2 days and then had to go get #s 2 and 3 and get them finished just in time for the 4th book to come out!

And I debated on whether or not to read Midnight Sun... I understand how the author could be so upset that the manuscript got leaked. But I finally read it and could not believe how great it was! By far the best writing Stephanie Meyer has done. I so hope she finishes it and publishes it!

Hope you get to see the movie... I can't wait to go.

And I've done that quiz before... I'm an Esme :)
