Breaking Dawn

Friday night was a lot of fun. I met with some other ladies from our ward and we had a "Breaking Dawn" release party. We ate of course, visited, and then headed to Borders for their release party. We got there and I went up to the desk to get my number and they didn't have me on the list!  I was so upset. Can you imagine? I had specifically called the store to double check and she told me I was down and to just plan on coming in that night. UUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHH! So a very unhelpful girl told me I just had to wait until all of those with numbers got theirs before they would know how many more books they had left. Then she said that the wait list was going on through the weekend and I probably wouldn't get one. Needless to say I was a little upset. So I went up to front desk to talk to someone there and the lady was really helpful. She said to just wait until the numbers were called and that I should get one. I waited for the ones with numbers to go through the line, then jumped in following them just hoping I could get my book.  I waited and most of those with numbers had gone through and I was the next in line. I told the lady that was helpful that I didn't have a band and she said, "it's cool, I'll get you one."  My hero!  I was so glad. I would have hated to get mine a day later. ;-) 

Anyway, I finished the book today after church!  I loved it.  It was so not what I was expecting to happen, or at least part of it. I loved how it ended. I know I missed a bunch of stuff and I will have to read it again because I anxious to find out what happened.  Sometimes I get a little too carried away. So if you haven't read it yet, ENJOY!

I really don't know how she did it but I don't think anyone can complain, jacob or edward fans should be happy.

*I* of course am an Edward fan and wouldn't mind being his Bella for a couple days :D

I LOVED THE BOOK!! Wasn't what I expected either! Finished it this morning, Carl couldn't wait to get his hands on it either. I saw Kahea at Walmart at the release for it...was a lot of fun and actually was much faster then I thought it would be. Leave for Oregon Wed!! Can't wait! :-)

I loaned my copy to Lisa on sunday and i'm counting down the minutes until she is finished so I can read it again!

I *LOVED* IT! I am SO happy that she figured out a way to tie up all the loose ends and make EVERYONE happy, I truly don't see how anyone can walk away from the series not thrilled :D

I LOVED the book. I pretty much read myself into a depression however and I was sad to close the book and realize I had nothing to keep me up reading anymore at night. Guess this means a trip back to the bookstore to become wrapped up in another book! :)
