Well, I just “discovered” a new writer, and had to share. I have been hearing about the “Twilight” books for ages (author is Stephanie Meyer), so my best friend took the plunge for me and bought me the first book in the series. I have to preface this by saying that I don’t traditionally appreciate the paranormal, and so I tend not to read those kinds of books. But so many people whose opinions I respect have raved about these books, so I held back disbelief and plunged in.
Wow! What a great book “Twilight” is! Granted, it’s geared towards teenagers, so you have that social element, but otherwise it is very enjoyable. The story is good, and I actually got involved enough in it that I didn’t have to suspend disbelief for long – just for the first chapter or two. I have since picked up the second book, and am trying to find the third one in trade paperback as well. I can’t wait to read on!
