Band Wagon Reader

I did it!  I finally jumped on the Stephanie Meyer bandwagon and I am so glad I did.  I picked up the first two books at Costco yesterday. Last night after everyone went to bed, I made it 130 pages in and am LOVING it!  Not sure if its the subject, the description of the scenery (since I love the Olympic Peninsula so), or what.

I do love all books that have an element of new tense romance to them (not cheesy Harlequin types though, there has to be a significant plot too).  One of the greatest feelings has to be the uncertainty and electricity leading up to a first kiss.  Considering I started dating my husband when I was just 16, I haven't experienced that too often.  But I love to read about it! 

The weather here is perfect for reading too this weekend - Windy and overcast.  This summer I had a really hard time reading anything.  Not sure if it was the sun or the topics of the books I had around.  But this book and this weather make for an irresistible temptation for me!  Good thing we have free hockey tickets tonight or I might never leave the recliner.
