I know, I know, I’ve used a similar title for this post, but I figured “to read or not to read” would be a nice generic term for my reading-related posts. So far there haven’t been all that many, but I’ve got a few ideas so might as well categorize them, ML-X style :) It made total sense when I thought of it; if I don’t read, I don’t think I “am”.
Aaanyway… In the aforementioned post, way back when I started this blog, I was really wondering whether to start reading Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga or not. It’s been quite a dilemma, but with a little help from you guys in the comments, I decided to give it a go and bought these beauties:
And then some of the cover artwork:
I actually wanted to go for the special edition, but decided not to because they were quite a bit pricier, and wouldn’t look all that awesome between my other books due to the colour difference. I know, my reasoning doesn’t make all that much sense, but just trust me on this one.
Either way, the “regular” black edition is gorgeous as well, and I’m happy I could find a set so they all match!
As you may or may not have noticed in the first picture, I’ve already started reading the first book. And… I love it. It’s such an adorable love story and I’m having such a hard time with putting it down, that even now while I’m writing, I want to finish off as soon as I can to go back to reading it. And just knowing that with every sequel the book is getting bigger makes me kind of happy inside!
The only downpart I can think of (of the first book) is that it’s quite similar to the movie. So there’s only very little room for surprise. But in all honesty, I can’t believe I still remember so much from the movie, what with my Alzheimer-ish memory and seeing the movie months ago! But it’s not all that disturbing; in fact I’m almost done with Twilight and I guess I’ll be moving on to New Moon very soon. I can hardly wait!
I owe a big thank-you to the ones who’ve convinced me to read it despite my scepticism, both on- and offline. You know who you are :)
Anyway, that’s all for today, I’m headed back to my book ;) But I’m curious; which books have you been reading lately? Do you have any recommendations?
Thanks for reading, commenting and just sticking around!
