I went down to our local mall on Sunday to start my Christmas shopping. Hubby had the kids and I was set to get underway! I kind of got sidetracked though. I suddenly thought that seeing a movie might be in order so I wandered in and saw that there was a movie called Twilight on. I had not read the books, didn't know anything about it other than that it had something to do with Vampires...so I got my popcorn and headed in!
WELL! It was kind of a mistake, because I couldn't let it go! I walked out of the cinema (on a high) and went and bought the next three books (New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn) and proceeded to devour them...finishing them up last night. WOW. I loved them. I'm going to go see the movie again as soon as I can, then go and read the first book (which I didn't read because I was too keen to know what happened after the movie left off). I'm not going to give anything away!!
Seriously though, I feel like I've been on a holiday, and for the price of a movie ticket and three books (and a couple of late, late nights)...that ain't too bad!
Hope your Christmas shopping is further advanced than mine :-).
