Re: Introduce Yourselves

Hi My name is Melissa. I'm 26 and trying to be an elementary teacher, but I need a job before I can do that! Earlier this month my husband and I took his 13-yr-old sister to the bach. She could not put Twilight down! When I saw how much she was enjoying it I asked her what it was about. (She was the person who turned me onto Harry Potter so I trusted her opinion) After vacation she got New Moon and let me borrow Twilight. I read it straight through. I don't even think I stopped to sleep. The next day I went and got New Moon and Eclipse and spent a day on each one. I can't stop reading the books. I keep rereading them. It's driving my husband nuts! I was so relieved when some of you said the same thing.

Other authors - I loved Harry Potter but other than that most of my time was spent reading "adult" books. If I'm ever in need of a good cry Nicholas Sparks can take care of that for me.

How I found all of you - I got bored and was looking on Barnes & Noble's website. I guess I got lucky!!

Re: Introduce Yourselves

Hey!
Im mysterygirl. Im an avid reader. (i bet you get a lot of that but...). I don't quite remeber why I chose 'Twilight' but I was hooked as soon as I started reading. When i would have to put it down whether it was because I had to sleep, or put it down in school, it was so- hard to do! When I finished it I couldn't WAIT to get 'New Moon'. When I did, I was amazed! Meyers did it again! It was about a year before i got 'Eclipse'. When i did, i could hardly put it down! She did it again! HA HA. I was on the edge my seat when I read all three books. And now I hear that there is a fourth to come? Well I certently hope so! Its pretty weird, but i think I am IN LOVE with Edward. The way Meyers writes him, is absolutly breath taking. And, since i just could NOT get enough, Im rereading the series. There books I could read over and over again. These are definitly books that I will reread ALL the time.

Oh. And I hear from Meyers' website, they may be making a movie of them. I was thrilled when I heard!!

See ya in Forks!

Re: Introduce Yourselves

Hi my name is Elizabeth. I was one day searching online at Barnsandnoble.com I saw Twilight come up so I read about it. It sounded really good. My friend (who normally doesn't like this kind of suff)told me about this book. I read it. It was so good I couldn't wait for the next one. The second book, New Moon, I thought was sad in the beginning but then became happy at the end. When I read Eclipse, I though it was the best by far. I loved Eclipes because it was an incredible love story.

Re: Introduce Yourselves

Hey NatureBuff:
Congratulations, I think you've created the longest post I've ever seen! I've been to a few of the sites that you mentioned and, man, doesn't it blow you away at the popularity of this series? Meyer really touched a nerve with YA – and adult – readers. That's got to feel so good – writing a series of novels and then just watching their popularity go through the roof. Can't wait til the movie is released...

And welcome to all of our new visitors, by the way, glad to have you here!
Paul

What are you talking about? It's never too late to start reading Eclipse. As a teacher, I'm curious to read what your thoughts are of the series... Enjoy!

Re: Introduce Yourselves

I go by Countess here...it's easier. :smileywink: I was introduced to the series by my mother-in-law, who loved them. My husband and I have been reading them over a period of a few weeks. I am finished and am very impressed with this series so far. I am not usually big on mixing fantasy with everyday, many writers don't think it through properly. Stephanie Meyer DID. The worlds mesh flawlessly. I am glad there is a forum for these books, it helps to talk things through and get insites from others. :smileyhappy:

Re: Introduce Yourselves

Hi All,
I'm a Children's/YA Librarian in MA. I picked up Twilight because it's on many of the YA lists as a "must have" book. I usually read one or two Young Adult books a month to keep up with what's popular and thought it was about time that I read this one. So, I picked Twilight up and couldn't put it down. Read it straight through and became obsessed with these characters and Forks. I immediately went to buy New Moon and Eclipse - which is unheard of for me, since I have millions of books at my fingertips - I couldn't get them soon enough though.

I have visited many of the Twilight websites listed and enjoy everyone's conversation since it keeps the books fresh and "alive" for me. Needless to say, I can't wait for next fall and the release of "Breaking Dawn." As for the movie, I'm always a bit leery of books made into movies because most don't translate well. I would hate for the series to be ruined for someone who hasn't read them, but saw the movie instead.
A good book is the best of friends. -Old English Proverb

Re: Introduce Yourselves

Hello all newcomers and welcome to the Stephenie Meyer forum! Just a heads-up to everyone that if you're curious about other new YA releases and/or children's books, feel free to check out B&N's Kid Lit Book Club (the link is below), which discusses a bunch of different titles, trends, etc. Best!

Re: Introduce Yourselves

My name is Elise (20) and I am new to this whole Barnes and Noble book club thing. I have a huge passion for reading but don't know many others physically around me that do too so I thought I would try this out. I need to be able to talk to people about the books I read that know what I am talking about. I love the Twilight series. I too just happened across it in a Barnes and Noble store one day and just had to buy it. I have a slight obsession with vampires. I think I get it from my father who read all the Anne Rice books, and my mother who was a big fan of The Lost Boys. I was practically climbing the walls at the end of New Moon, I couldn't wait for Eclipse to come out. Now I am happy and trying to make the next year pass by as quickly as possible so I can read Breaking Dawn.

Re: Introduce Yourselves

hi i'm laura, im 15 and i have always been a fan of both romance and adventure novels. i was introduced to twilight about two weeks after it came out when it was shoved into my arms by my best friend who was gushing and squeeling about how good it was. I have been addicted and obssesed by the series ever scince. It's really cool that this kind of discussion exists apart from her fan sites and i cant wait to see what you guys think (especially scince a lot of you seem older and the people i usually talk to are in the 16 years and below age group)

Introduce Yourselves

Hello everyone!

I have to start off by saying that I'm not normally into the vampires and werewolves genre, however, Stephenie Meyer has "converted" me (for lack of a better term) into a devoted fan! Can't wait til the next one comes out!
