Bloodsuckers and Barefoots

I finally bought the whole set of Twilight series in paperback. I really wanted the hardcover but it cost too much so I had to settle for the paperbacks instead. Why are books so expensive here? It sure makes life a little harder for hardcore bookworms like myself. Book Addict, that's what Hubster labels me as. Sometimes I think that he is somewhat jealous of my love affair with books. Even the smell of new books will get me excited. They smell great don't you think? 

Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.

Whenever I got a new set of books  (I will always buy at least 3 books at once, never just one), I secretly wished for a 'Book Marathon' holiday. Where I can escape to a quiet place alone so that I can overdose on books and read one after another back to back without interruptions. Since I cannot see that wish turning into a reality in any near future, I will just be content in snatching any precious free time to indulge myself. 

Now, for this EdwardBella Vampire Werewolf saga, I watched the movie Twilight first before reading the book. Besides swooning at the delicious Edward Cullen, that movie left many questions in my head unanswered, I wasn't satisfied with just the movie so I simply had to buy the book. Though it is classified under Young Adult literature, it got me hooked and salivating for more. The intrigue of  the human-vampire relationship is just so arresting. Throw in a jealous werewolf and the plot is just simply inescapable and totally riveting. Lightly put, I am seduced by it.The combination of romance, suspense and the supernatural twist is simply irresistible. I, for one, am hypnotized.

So now I have three more books to go before I am completely rested and at peace. I wonder how long that will take me. That idea of the book marathon holiday seems so appealing but........ SIGHHHHH......
