Or maybe it's twelve. Either way, it was buckets of fun! As the majority of you know, Stephanie Meyer's new book, Breaking Dawn came out on Saturday, August 2. My friends Rachel, Maria, and Carmen and I went to the midnight release of this MUCH anticipated end to the Twilight saga.
Rather than just be normal... normal being going at midnight to stand in line with hundreds of other people... we decided to really play the thirteen year-old card. Rachel and I made shirts for ourselves and Carmen. (Maria is actually more like sixteen and was too cool to wear a sparkling declaration of love for Edward!)Me, Rachel, Carmen sportin' our sparkling TEAM EDWARD shirts.
Maria did wear black to match us and put a sticker on her shirt, so we might be lookin' at somewhere around 15 years old. ;)
Can't you just feel our excitement!! We were nearly bouncing off the walls with it!
This was the line ahead of us, and it extended far behind us too. This was only the people with "A" bracelets, meaning we were the first bunch. There was also "B-E", I believe. That's how many people were there! It was madness. I loved it!
And here we are with our much coveted treasures!
My big plan for when I got home was to sneak off and read for a few hours before I went to bed. But I was thwarted by a sick little girl. Ella ended up throwing up all night. So I was on mommy-duty instead! I finally fell asleep at about 5am and only read about 150 pages in between Ella sicking up.
I finally finished the book this morning, and, while I liked it, I didn't LOVE it like I did the other three. I was actually relieved that I only enjoyed it rather than obsessively LOVED it. It made it easier for me to not be sad and depressed when I finished the book and knew it was the end of this series forever.
What are your thoughts on the book? (If you want to talk specifics in a comment, please forewarn those who haven't read it yet by saying SPOILER before you type your spoiling comment!!!!)
