Twilight Series


I have really gotten into reading the past couple months. It all started with a LONG plane right to Salt Lake City when we came home to visit in August. I had to have something to keep me from getting bored out of my mind and figured a good book should do the trick! I ended up getting "Nights in Rodanthe" by Nicholas Sparks and can I just tell you how AWESOME it is! When the movie came out last month, I made Alex take me to see it on opening night and the movie was so wonderful! A must see in my opinion ;) Nicholas Sparks is also the author of "A Walk To Remember" and "Message In A Bottle". So....he just came out a little bit ago with his latest book called "The Lucky One" and it was even better! I read the whole thing cover to cover in 2 days between work and chores. Yes it's only 226 pages but that's quite an accomplishment for me with how busy I've been with work lately. Now I'm REALLY on a reading frenzy so I decided to listen to like 80% of female book readers and most importantly my sister-in-law Heather and bought myself the first book in the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer called "Twilight". So far I have only read the first 10 pages but it seems interesting enough. I have to be honest, I am soooo not into fantasy stuff like vampires but I'm willing to give it a shot. I think I may just be surprised. I am normally into books about love, mystery, or sports so we'll just have to wait and see! Thanks Heather for the advice on the book and if I really enjoy it and read the other 3 books in the series, consider this a thanks in advance!

  2. Oh Jayne, just keep on reading. I'm so glad you've learned to love the written word. It is one of my favorite things in the world. When you finish the Twilight series, I want you to read "The Host". It's Stephenie Meyer's OTHER book (and it's NOT a series) I totally LOVED that book too! I think I'll try that book you just read, and then I'll go see the movie. I'm reading a classic right now ("Jayne Eyre") But I should be done soon, and then I'm gonna want something new. When you finish twilight, maybe you me and Katelyn can gang up on Robyn and get her to read it too. (Yeah...Kate borrowed mine and she really liked it). See you soon!

  4. Hey Jayne
    I don't know if you remember me but we grew up together in Farr West years ago? Hopefully you do so you don't think I am some crazy person! But how are you?

  5. OMG You have to go watch the movie in theater if you end up loving the books. I am obsessed with purchasing the video ASAP
