If you haven't heard of the series of books by Stephenie Meyer by now, you must be living under a rock.
I am reading them now. Actually, I have read 3 of the books and I am in the middle of #4 right now. They are young adult novels but I know a LOT of women who have read them.
Basically they are about a girl who falls in love with a vampire. Only the vampires in this book bear little resemblance to your average vampire legend or Dracula story. And to complicate matters, said girl has a (male) best friend who has some, errr, issues of his own.
I'll just say that most of the women are in love with the vampire, Edward Cullen. I, however, have decided that I prefer the best friend, Jacob.
The writing isn't great but I have to admit the story is compelling. So compelling, in fact, that I am tearing through these relatively thick books in just a few hours each.
And so compelling that I am going now to get through another hundred pages or so before I go to bed.
