What happens now?
So, I’ve finally tackled Twilight, and hated it, just like I suspected I would. But don’t relax yet, gentle readers. There are three whole other books in this series, and with how many used book stores we have in town, I know I am just certain to find New Moon around here somewhere.
I came into Twilight knowing a fair bit about what happens–except for the Alice thing. I don’t know why people weren’t telling me that in an effort to get me to read it, as opposed to “but the vampires sparkle!” With New Moon, I only have two things to go on:
- Edward and Bella are seperated for most of the book, which means that I will probably want to kill myself just as badly as Bella does.
- Smeyer’s werewolves are really freaking stupid.
So it’ll just be one surprise after another, I’m sure! I plan to retire the Adverb Count (I think we all get the point by now) and introduce a new rubric of measure, the Edward Creep-O-Meter. Is Edward creepy, on a scale of 1 to 10? My guarantee is at some point we will reach 11!
I want to give myself a small break before I launch into yet another book I will invariably hate, so no recaps for a week. “What will we do for a week,” you (i.e. my mother) will cry. “How can we possibly live for seven days without another snark-filled, sober look at this piece of young adult ‘literature?'”
Never fear. I have a few things planned to keep you all (i.e. my mother) entertained, so keep coming back!
