What Is In Store

I finally couldn't take it anymore and picked this up when La Luz and I were browsing at Octavia Books on Saturday:


I can't get over the hype and I realize that it is for teens and that my indulgence is akin to those shameful trips I take to Forever 21 and the one hour a week I spend watching Gossip Girl, but I couldn't resist.

Now, if I could just get through American Pastoral. I hope that my recent acquisition and my current struggles aren't a reflection of my intellect.

Don't you worry, the entire series is on my Christmas list. I figured after my boss read them, I was in the clear to do so as well.

You haven't read the Twilight series yet? Oh my....can't wait to discuss with you! But you have to read them all, you know, in order to fully be a part of Twilight Nation. Great series....a little sappy in some areas, but I think you'll like it.

Hey Robin,
You and a million screaming teenagers. My students are in another world with the series. We had a fairly famous writer at school last week who described the novel as..."boring, boring, vampire kiss, boring, boring, vampire kiss" and the kids were so offended it was comical.

Boring, boring, vampire kiss? That's a bit harsh. At any rate, I am looking forward to reading it and will be ready to discuss!

Our station was actually hosting the Twilight movie screening and I was offered free passes. It's bad enough that I went to Meyer's book signing with well over 1000 excitable tweens (and their strangely impassioned parents) so I declined the tickets to the screening. There's only so much a pregnant woman can take before she snaps. But the books are fairly good :)

Oh, and Chris, I think your fairly famous author should have accurately described it as: nice start, a little weird, borderline sappy, vampire kiss, sappy, sappy, vampire kiss, still sappy, sappier....another vampire kiss....will they just have sex already....back to sappy, oh another vampire kiss....
