My kinda romance..

I am not a freaky reader. I do pick up books now and then but mostly leave them when I am 10 pages through. If they can hold my attention by then I read on, otherwise I just give up on them.

Bobbsey Twins and Harry Potter were till now the only book series which were able to really hold my attention. No other books that I 'completed' made me feel that I'd remember them as a good read.
A week ago I saw my cousin totally engrossed in this book Twilight and I borrowed it from her. And since then I haven't been able to put it down. I finished the four book series within 10 days, and considering my reading speed, that's really something!

For Non-Twilight readers, in simple words its a vampire love story.

Yeah yeah, I's NOT a cheesy romantic novel like Mills n Boons and the like. It's the most beautiful thing I have ever read...subtle romance as Krits would call it. A dark love story...and I'm a sucker for them!
I fell in love with Edward the moment I read his introduction in the story...and its still going strong :D
For me, the story is everything I was looking for in a romance novel. The 'unconditional and irrevocable' love that Bella and Edward share, the restrain Edward has to put to himself to stop him from killing her and they being able to get past the difference between a mortal and an immortal....everything has been so beautifully put that you wouldn't feel there could be a different, better way to put it.

For those who are intrigued...let this post not be a spoiler...go read it yourself :)
For those who find this stupid/crazy/cheesy etc etc. can just go away...hmph!

The first book's movie - Twilight ...was a slight disappointment for me in the sense that many plots of the book have been tampered with. But Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen more than makes up for any flaws :)

The music of the movie is worth a try....though its mostly instrumental, but great piano work (if that's piano what I hear :D)

Hope you like it...

Ahhhh – another addict! Welcome to my world – I am HANGING for the second instalment to be released in cinema’s! Already I have said that I would like the box set (when its released as I am sure it will be!).

My best friend is REFUSING to read it on grounds that everywhere she goes she either hears people talking about it or see’s all these people on the train reading it! I have told her that that she NEEDS to read it & that she will not be disappointed…
