Can you believe it? After fighting it all this time, I finally gave in.
How it started! To be honest I was curious to see what all of the fuss was about. So I started reading the first chapter of "Midnight Sun: Edward's story." That is when I got hooked. In that one chapter there was so many emotions and feelings erupting from the character, that I wanted to know more about him and about his story. The next day, I picked up the first four books, and ten days later, I was through with the series. I literally did not eat or sleep for those ten life sucking days. And when I did sleep, I was dreaming about the Cullen (Vampire family.) I was consumed by the story and by the characters. I could feel myself becoming a part of the Cullen family (pale from not going out into the sunlight, not sleeping, not eating, having visions of the past-aka dreaming Twilight.)
The next Saturday, Jon and I celebrated me finishing the series by going out to eat at "Five Guys Burgers and Fries" and going to the movies to see Twilight of course. I must say Jon was relieved when I was done. He told me that he missed his wife for that week and a half.
Funny coincidence. The day I got done reading the last book, we received a letter from Jon's cousin from Washington, who's last name is Carlisle. I was so freaked out, I stared at the letter without opening it for a minute or two (yes! I was that obsessed). If you are not familliar with the book, the Cullen family is from Washington, and the head of the household of the Cullen family's name is Carlisle. It was just too many coincidences all at once for me.
