Thanks a lot, Stephenie Meyer

You had to go and release your book on what is possibly the busiest week of my entire summer! Do you realize I am getting NOTHING done??? So unfair. I'm trying to juggle a page here and there with all the things on my to-do list, I'm only on page 265, and I feel like I'm walking around in a daze and I won't be able to focus on anything until page 754!!! Why can't I get the flu or something so I'll have a reason to just sit in bed and READ?!!!

I think I'm the only person in the entire state who hasn't gotten sucked in yet. I'm trying to resist, but I do feel myself getting weaker. I do love to read - I just can't justify the time right now.

Kristen said...

Yes, I'm with you, but not on this book just yet. I'm still in the middle of book 3 and can't even concentrate on my life these days. Sorry to stalk you these last few days. Hope your week continues to be fun and busy. I'm jealous that you get Mom for the rest of the week. Give her 5 big hugs from me!

Don't get stressed out about missing anything.... I am offically grossed out by this book. On pg 467 and I hate every single charater she has created. Edward:Lame, Rosealie: Lamer, Bella: most lame of all and Jacob: EWH! Get a little farther, then call me, I will meet you half way between our houses and we will talk... I need to talk about his book!!!!!!!

p.s. I have sorta been feeling not so good... I could come sneeze on you. Call me if you need my assistance.

I'm behind you. Only in the 100's. Yeah, this is a busy, bad week for me too. We'll all have to go see the movie when it comes out.

carrie said...

I, personally, LOVED the book. There are some "strange" parts....but it IS a vampire book, right?? ha ha I love Edward STILL....more than ever. I am planning something so we can all get together and talk about the book. Stephanie and Allyson are going to girls' camp....so maybe early next week?? That way everyone should be done reading it by then.... I just think it's so much fun. It's just an easy to read book..... I hope you'll love it. I can't wait for you to be done!! :o) I hope you don't get sick this week either!! ha ha

Can't wait to read it! My sis is in love and only on page 100. I'm not even starting it until I know I have day and night to dedicate to reading it. Could be awhile..

Shelly said...

You are so funny! I am a loser and still have not read that series. My husband has (no he is not gay). He loves to read when he is on airplanes each week and thought he would check out what all the fuss was about. Someday I will get to it.

Heidi P said...

I am sorry to say- I have no idea what all of you crazed girls are talking about. My sister offered me $20 bucks just to read one book...No thanks! I hate novels and I hate vampires! :)
I have plenty of other distractions going on in my life anyway! Glad you are all super excited though :)

Christa said...

I am about to switch from reading the Host to start reading this book. I can't seem to get into The Host but I am only 50 pages into it. I am sure it gets better.

The Spradlin Family said...

Hey, it was great to see you last week. Lunch was fun. I'll have to start reading the books, because I hear they are good. Anyway, I'll talk to you soon.
ps-did you find out waht that gross spider was? YUCK!

Hubba's Thoughts said...

You make me laugh once again.. I must admit.... I haven't read any of these books. We leave for Yellowstone next week and I have thought about taking the first book.. Do you have it?? Can I borrow it.

Alicia said...

Yep, Anne Marie has it for sure. I borrowed it from her, read the first chapter and got the creeps so bad that I couldn't go on. (Everyone says it's not scary but I'm a giant baby.)

Good luck getting any sleep at all before you finish your book, Anne Marie! Anything I can help out with to make you less busy?! Youth Conference stuff? I could bring in meals (no flu necessary!)

Tara said...

I didn't even buy the book yet because I have to write the Primary Program by Sunday. NO DISTRACTIONS! I can read her books in one day-it may make me a negelectful mother but I need Edward and Jacob!

tiff said...

Lucky me I just finished mine today and believe me when Bella did..... just kidding. When eveyone is finished we need to have a girls night out again and discuss it.

Teresa said...

your so funny, yeah, tell me about trying to get through it. i'm on page 616, you'd think with a newborn he'd sleep all day so i could read. oh well, i'm so excited to go out and talk all about Edward.

Julia said...

I'm pretty sure that after I finish the fourth book and post my thoughts, I'll have no friends left...I just don't get the hype, but i'm reserving judgment until I finish.

Tami said...

I can't wait to start it! I'm waiting for my sister to finish hers!

Forever Five said...

I loved "Breaking Dawn". I was sad when I finished it. I'll have to start the series over again.

Joy said...

Amen. But didn't you love it. I know some haven't been very satisfied with this book but I LOVED IT!!!!
