what's your mode of transport?
mine is the sun.
when it rises dripping from
the sea when it falls like honey on
the trees when it swallows up
clouds my soul moves with it.
mine is you.
i like fridays, rainy days, proud cats, black & white photographs, children's books, short stories and movies that most people would never see. Music serves me justice on sad days (Adele, The Kooks, Mumford & Sons are gems) and genuine smiles are a must-have.

i was incredibly hesitant but i wanted to know what the fuss was all about. and I get it now, i do. the first book was urgh nothing special, as in nothing one can't grasp from the movie but as the story progressed to the next three books, i was honestly sucked into the tender beautiful consuming love of edward and bella (the actors & actresses in the movie version were incredible disappointments & poor substitutes to the depth of the characters in the books) and the almost real-life conversations. it's the way things are said and inner-turmoils of all the characters make it all worthwhile and yet painful to read. also, it helps that it's only from one perspective and not from the bore of the third person, ie. knowing what's coming next.
it's one of those series where the writing and the story gets better with every book. i would skip the first book but the other three, especially the LAST TWO books-Eclipse & Breaking Dawn-surprised & exhilarated me. really wondrous.
such a page turner. haven't moved from my room for the past three days, which goes to show the level of my exhilaration of the series. i usually don't stick to book/books for that long. it helps that i'm a sucker for fantasy & romance novels merge into one. like Daughter of the Forest by Juliette Marillier. and i'm still reeling from that story.
My God. i want a love like that to exist. even with the breathtakingly excrutiating pain it brings.
i think i might cry.
and i never want to see another movie adaptation of a book again. okay, maybe except harry potter and revolutionary road. and curious case of benjamin button. and the lovely bones. and um the time traveller's wife. other than that, thanks but no thanks.
i still have an irrational fear of vampires though.
