I now understand the hype behind Twilight.
I've read the book, watched the movie, and enjoyed both a lot more than I expected to.
I'd heard so many reviews, most of them not good, that I suppose I'd lowered my expectations so was pleasantly surprised.
For me, it's not about the writing.
Not about the plot.
Not about the paranormal stuff that I don't usually read.
The catch for me is the age old love story between star-crossed lovers.
Whatever happens in the plot, I want to keep reading to follow the relationship between Bella and Edward. I'm hooked on their romance. Simple as that.
And yes, I went out and bought New Moon the day after finishing Twilight. It has moved to top of my towering TBR pile.
