Twilight (Twilight, #1)
i LOVED this book. i haven't adored a character so much since tarod. yes, i said it. tarod. having never read the anne rice 'vampire' books, my familiarity with the undead is limited, but i could not put this book down. being from the 'christopher pike' generation, i can appreciate a good teen-geared book, and i think i actually preferred that it was geared toward a younger generation. it took me back to 17 (which is good and bad) -- but what really made it amazing is that i was constantly gripped with this sense of urgency/mania over what was going on. the two main characters are my friends. and we're gonna have some words if you tell me they're not ;) in most books with some sort of love-vibe going on, you jump right past the romance and get to the smut. here, no smut. endless pages of sexual tension -- wonderful, gut-wrenching, anxiety-inducing, "why-won't-you-f*ing-kiss-her?!" tension! read it in two nights, staying up til 3 both times. suffice to say, it's been a long time since i wander through my days, mulling over imaginary characters' dilemmas. how very sad for me, you might think? nah, i'm loving it!
