I have written a lot about the Twilight Saga but I haven’t actually written about the book Twilight. I LOVED the book. The action and romance all in one was great! When I read this book I automatically became Team Edward. Stephenie Meyer is my favorite author, her books are the reason I got hooked on reading so much. The book has both action and romance which I love, but even better it has VAMPIRES! In the book, Bella Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her dad. That is when she falls in love with the mysterious Edward Cullen who has a scary secret. To Edward, Bella’s blood is more alluring than any human he has ever smelled before.
When I started reading Twilight I could not put it down, actually I fell asleep with it on top of my face one night and my mom had to come in my room to close the book and turn off my light. It took me a total of one and a half days to finish it. When I told my mom I had finished the book she didn’t believe me at first. She even got a Q&A and tested me to make sure that I really read it that fast… guess what, I got a 100%.
For my Christmas present this year my mom took me to the Official Twilight Convention. Now let me tell you, it was the best Christmas present ever! I got to meet Peter Facinelli aka Carlisle Cullen, Jodelle Ferland aka Bree Tanner, Bronson Pelletier aka Jared of the wolf pack, Kiowa Gordon aka Embry also of the wolf pack, Christopher Heyerdahl aka Marcus of the Volturi, and last but not least The Hillywood Show.
Getting to meet the actors was not as scary as I thought it was going to be. I guess it is because before I officially met them they did a Q&A which was really cool. Each actor came on stage separately which was nice because we got a full hour to learn about them. I did ask Bronson if he would like to play a vampire as a role and he sad yes which was really cool. Peter Facinelli was really nice, he talked to the crowd, gave hugs, came out into the audience and let them ask their own questions directly to him. He even had us do the wave because he heard that when Christopher Heyerdahl came in he got a standing ovation.
It was really cool meeting Bronson because he is my favorite wolf, Jared. I think my mom thought I was going to have a heart attack when he came into the room to do his Q&A. Meeting Jodelle Ferland was awesome because she is Bree Tanner. I read the book The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella which I loved, a big thanks to Stephenie Meyer for writing it. Keep on reading because I will have another post coming up talking all about the Hillywood cast and what it was like meeting them and all the other fun stuff that took place during the Convention.

For my birthday present I received a Twilight scrapbook and inside was plane tickets to go to Forks, Washington. I get to stay in the Cullen house which is a big deal to me because I am team Edward and I love Vampires. I leave on the 12th of this month, August. The plane ride will take 4 hours to get there (yikes). I am counting down the days until I get to go. It is such a big deal for me since I’m a huge Twilight fan. I can not wait because we get to take a tour of the town and we get to go down to La Push as well. When I found out that I was going to Forks, WA I started crying because I was so happy. I wrote a post on how I wanted to go to Forks since it is on my life list.
