Twilight and New Moon
After receiving several recommendations from different girlfriends to read the Young Adult fiction books authored by Stephenie Meyer, I decided to finally track down a copy. I borrowed them from a friend (thanks Monique) who checked them out from the library and I read each of the 500-550 page books in a day. I could not put them down. I returned them to Monique but couldn't stop thinking about them so I finally went out and bought a copy for myself. I read them through a second time, but over a week instead of a day which I'm sure Scott and the kids appreciated :), and then I lent them out to friends, most of which really enjoyed them as well. The author graduated from BYU and is in her early thirties. Both of these books that she wrote were NY Times bestsellers and she signed a contract for a total of four books; they're all a part of a continuing story. The first two books are called Twilight and New Moon. The third book, Eclipse, comes out August 7th this year! I'm so excited! I'll probably post another blog about that book once I finish it :). Hopefully this will persuade some of you ladies (I think it's kind of a chick book) to find a copy for yourself, I know you can get them at Barnes and Noble, at Amazon.com or at Deseret Book and I'm sure they are sold in almost any bookstore. If you've read the book(s) already and liked them, please feel free to share your opinions.
