It's not my fault. Someone in my building left Twilight (and also Fifty Shades of Grey) on the giveaway table in our lobby. I was curious, because I'd read the book--all of them actually--before and wondered how I'd feel about it the second time around, nearly ten years later. I'll be honest, I devoured Twilight the first time through. Repetitive and predictable as it is, it's still ridiculously compelling. Still. I felt the same way on my second reading about how addictive the story is. I was less blind, though, to how controlling Edward is, and Bella's meek attempts to assert herself.
Plus, there's some weird stuff going on with the narrative voice--like referring to her fellow teens as "youngsters" and frequently winking at people. Do people wink anymore, outside of children's programming?
Will I reread New Moon, too? I might!
