Beth Revis, author of Across the Universe and sequel A Million Suns, is having a 'Show Gratitude for Books Giveaway"
This is probably going to sound very, VERY generic, but it's very true. Even if everyone (well maybe not everyone) uses you as an example I can not deny that I owe your creator, Stephanie Meyer and you a big heaping handful of thankfulness. (I know that probably didn't make sense just go along with it. I'm tired.) Without you there wouldn't be movies (and without the movies I wouldn't have found you) which leads me right back to why I, Ashley, of Bookaholics Anonymous am thankful for the you the Twilight Series. After watching the first movie, I pretty much went out and bought you right after (okay, maybe a few days after), and I devoured you (Yes, I did). I wanted more. It didn't have to be more of your world, but I wanted to have that feeling of being able to escape into another persons world (even if it was similar to ours) I wanted more Vampires, werewolves, anything that was similar. I'll admit before you I read the Harry Potter Series, and while I loved and devoured them as well, it didn't leave me with that spark. That spark that went off after reading you. The next few books I bought post-you were Vampire Academy (and if you know me then you know it is my number one love right, and I wouldn't have it if it weren't for you, Twilight), House of Night books, which I grew fond of (because I didn't realize all the other awesome books out), The Evernight Series, The Blue Blood Series, and The Wolves of Mercy Falls, and because those were my firsts I try and remain loyal to them just as I will to you, Twilight.
In my closing statement this is all I have to say in your defense:
I don't care how many people look at me funny when I say you really don't suck.
I don't care how many people continually say how horrible your insides are.
I will continue to support you.
Twilight you will always be my reason for starting to read and my love for the written words.
I am thankful for you!
