Twilight post #2, in which I may have been wrong about post #1

Well, what do you know. 

I might in fact be a Twilight fan after all! 

I finished the book. By the time I got to the last third of it, I could not put it down. 

I still think the writing is atrocious – if I had a few free hours, I would go through and count how many times Bella “grimaces” since I think it’s a world record. And the gender roles are hugely obvious and insulting, and the vaguely religious undertones make me uncomfortable. But yes, Twilight was a captivating book. I guess this means I need to read the rest of them. Anyone want to loan me a copy?

    I might have the third one lying around if you want it.

  2. Thanks Mayor, but I’ve got it covered – thanks to my mentee. I’ll report back when I’ve finished them!
