In 2009 my sister convinced me to go to a movie with her called Twilight, which was based off a book she had been trying to get me to read. My life was never the same.
Once I finished the movie my mind was blown. I was hooked, I even had my mom go buy the book for me. Before this I attested reading and never wanted to read anything! I finished the book within a week and after that I was hooked on reading!
Here are some photos:
In the photo with the cardboard cutout and Bella Italia are in Port Angeles, WA. In 2009 they had a dazzled by twilight store with all of the Twilight products you could think of and Bella Italia was based off of the Italian restaurant that Bella and Edward go to in the movie.
I saw Twilight 5 times while it was in theaters. I then proceeded to buy a very vast collection of Hot Topic Twilight products.
My twilight collection:
- 5 posters
- 5 shirts
- 3 keychains
- 1 Edward cardboard cutout
- 1 Edward Pillowcase
- Rosalie’s necklace
- 2 copies of Twilight
- Twilight magazine
- Twilight tote bag
- Edward action figure
- 2 bookmarks
- Twilight lipgloss
- Twilight perfume (in the shape of an apple)
I specifically became obsessed with vampire books that eventually led into loving all fantasy. I am so thankful for Twilight because it introduced me to my passion in life. Becoming obsessed with twilight led me from lower level English to honors English and eventually obtaining an English Literature Bachelors at 20 years old. Becoming obsessed with Twilight was the best
Since Midnight Sun is coming out in August I will definitely be doing a reread of the series before then.
