Name: Joanette Stephenson
Twilighter since?: August 2008
I am a late bloomer with these books, and I laughed when two of my best girlfriends were overly ecstatic and dying to buy the newest release of “Breaking Dawn” when we were up in Park City, UT for a girls weekend. And they couldn’t believe I had not heard of the “Twilight” books. They bought me Twilight, and I’ve never thought of myself as an obsessor of anything… I am a changed person! Twilight has brought incredible passion, exotic, erotic, feelings, that have given me unbelievable youth in my life. I am a mother of 3 and always thought of myself as cool, but I never even imagined that reading a book series could drastically change my life. (The way I look at me, my husband, my children. ) It has brought pure authentic happiness and giddyness to my life. I have read the first 3 books twice, and the unfortunately- unfinished version of Midnight Sun (twice), but I am holding out to read “Breaking Dawn”, probably until the New Year. I have not wanted to know how it ends, because amongest the absolute obsession, I don’t want this saga of “my twilight life” to EVER end… I call myself a silently obsessed fan, because who would think a mother of 3 could be brought to such an incredibly deep passionate obsession as this… I am the biggest, most obsessed SILENT fan there is…And I can’t thank Stephenie Meyer enough for bringing more passion out in me, than I ever thought was possible. And to add to this… I love how Edward is considered to be older in years, so I believe any woman, at any age could thoroughly enjoy with a deep sense of passion, these books. Anyone of any age can be in love with Edward, because he truly touches the entire spectrum of all ages. I love how he absolutely adores Bella to the highest degree that love is possible. I believe all humans want and aspire to this kind of authentic and unconditional love. I cannot say enough… because like “true love” it cannot ever be described using words. Twilight will forever live on in my heart!!!….
