ABC: The Twilight Saga

I first started getting interested in Twilight was when I heard about it from my friend and I read a story that was somewhat similar to it in The Sims 2 website. I was instantly hooked! Mind you, I'm not a fan of Twilight from the very beginning as I only picked it up when New Moon's paperback was out. And the horror of waiting for Eclipse to come out after that was too hard to bear! I saw it at selling Singapore last December but couldn't bear to buy it because as ecstatic as I was for the book, I am in equal amounts, a frugal. It was bloody RM 69.90 as the paperback wasn't out yet. I mean, the most expensive reading material I've got is my Bible and my sister bought me that! Imagine my joy as Eclipse-the book I've been waiting for 6 months-finally came out in paperback in Malaysia! I saw it on sale in MPH that day and I instantly recognized its red on black cover from 10 feet away and literally ignored my mum talking to me at that time and just ran straight across to the comfort of the bookstore. When my shaking hands touched the book and breathed in the scent of the new book, I knew I was meant to take it home.
This year, when Breaking Dawn was out on the streets, I was positive I would have to go through it all again...the waiting...the worrying...all that stuff. But no! Bless the hearts of Stephenie Meyer and all the publishers at Little Brown as they launched the paperbacks and hardcovers together and just a few days later than US. I went to Midvalley with my friend at the opening of the mall doors and waited for MPH to open just to get the final installment of the Saga. Oh...and when I stepped into the bookstore, I knew where it was. I knew where I could get the long awaited final novel just by taking a swift look around. I quickly grabbed my friend and paid up. Ahh...the serenity of finally having all 4 books.
