Almost finished with the first book in the Twilight series. I'm totally hooked. But where will I find the second book, Moonlight, when I'm done? Buenos Aires doesn't have a Barnes & Noble, and if it did, the books would be in Spanish. Mark emailed me a list of bookstores that carry English titles, but the selection will be extremely limited. I don't know how long I can wait to begin the second book though! haha.

Stephanie Meyer isn't the best writer, she uses a very basic style, even for young adult. Harry Potter is more complex even. But there is something that keeps me reading. She does capture the human experience through the eyes of a 17-year-old girl very well, and let's be honest, from time to time we all need a reminder of how dramatic, exciting, and irrational life and love were as a teenager. Although I have to admit, I never felt that extremely intense attraction (the kind where you have to leave the room for fear of what you might do if you stay and continue to interact with that person of interest) until I was a bit older. Young love was intense, yes, but not as developed as Bella's love for Edward. Or maybe it was and I just don't remember?? Wow I feel old now :P

Anyway, I highly recommend Twilight, especially if you enjoyed Harry Potter or Abarat. You will begin to fantasize about meeting and falling for a hot vampire of your own. *sigh* lol
