I’m with you Jessie.  I just don’t get the fascination, but then maybe I’m just too old!

I really got into the books, but hated the movie. i am interested to see the new movie, tho. Although I like Twilight, I’m waaaaaaay more of a True Blood fan!

Me! I haven’t read or seen any of it. I honestly have no clue what it is really all about?!! But I have no problem with people who are into it, it’s just not my thing.

I read them all, but I thought the only thing worse than the actual writing was the characters. Edward is practically emotionally abusive. If one of my friends or sisters was involved with a guy like that (sans vampirism) I’d be really worried about her. I was a jacob fan, and she downright ignored that Bella and Jacob were meant to be together.

You know, I am going through the exact same thing right now. I resisted for a while reading them (devoted Sookie Stackhouse girl, here), but my SIL convinced me to read them. I read all of the Sookie books in less than 3 1/2 weeks! It has taken me three days just to get to chapter 6 in the first book. I just can’t get interested! Does it get better more into the book? I dunno, I think I have been out of high school too long to really relate. AND, I am kind of a vampire purist.. vampires out during the day? Really?

I feel like I’m too old for it, I think I would’ve liked it when I was in HS.

Also, I watched True Blood first and couldn’t help but compare.  I mean, the True Blood vampires explode in sunlight and the lame-o Twilight ones just sparkle?!?

Eh, I can take it or leave it. I watched the first movie & thought it was entertaining. We will probably rent the second one when it comes to dvd, but we won’t be breaking down any Blockbuster doors to get one 🙂

@DaisyBride: I agree. I feel too old for that kind of stuff too (24). I’m not into True Blood either…Like you said maybe if I was younger, but not now

@Jessie – Thats so funny, you are practical!!  I know how you feel but I can totally accept it on True Blood.

Also, in the first movie, I don’t get whey she didn’t just tell her dad what was going on, he was going to find out sooner or later!  A lot of the movie was about her leaving town and it was all based on the fact that she wasn’t honest with her dad!

Me too. I saw the movie (we rented it from that $1 redbox in the grocery store) and I think it was horrible. Fiance said he wants the dollar back :). I’ve heard the books are amazing though and I don’t doubt it – the book is always better than the movie.

@ DaisyBride I do too. All my friends are like “Robert Pattinson’s so hot” – Uh, isn’t he like 12? Wasn’t he the kid that died in Harry Potter? LOL

I wasnt into them at first. My friends kept saying that I should read the books but I was saying how I wasnt into vampire and werewolves.

THEN….

I watched Twilight and I thought I HAD to read the book. After that I was addicted. I read all four books and I am going to see New Moon with one of my girlfriends tonight! i cant wait!

@SandDollar – I don’t really think High Schoolers should be watching True Blood 🙂  It’s on HBO, theres a LOT of nudity and sex.
