My name is Lyndsey, and I like Vampire shows/movies/books.
I was skeptical of the whole Twilight thing when it first got popular. I heard how fabulous the books were, but I was an adult. What would that look like? To be reading the same books some of the 4th graders at my school were reading?? I think not. Then, the first Twilight movie came out and I guess I got caught up in all the hype because I bought the first book. I read it in a weekend and loved it! I never admitted to anyone I had read it.
I never even saw the movie until I could secretly add it to my Netflix queue and watch it in private.
Then, I kinda got stuck on the last one. I don't know if my timing was off and reading it when I didn't have the time to devote to it or if it was hard to get into it because of how out-there it was. As if the previous ones had been completely believable...
Then, this summer I broke away from the teeny-bopper vamps and got into True Blood on HBO. WOW!!! I just thought Twilight was good. Sookie and Bill are intense! I literally watched 2 seasons in 2 weeks so I could get caught up and catch up on what had already aired of season 3.
Then, a few weeks ago, something drew me to The Vampire Diaries on Netflix. I added the first season to my queue thinking I would watch it while Wes was gone to work for so long. I got the first disk and reluctantly slid it in the DVD player. I was instantly hooked! Flew through that disk and all the others as soon as they appeared in the mailbox. I was so sad when season 1 was over that I bought a season pass on iTunes so i could catch up with season 2 and pick back up with the new shows once they started airing in January. That took about....3 days. SO GOOD! It's a nice mix between the teenage drama of Twilight with some of the grit of True Blood.
Now, don't get me wrong...I don't do the "memorabilia". I don't flaunt this. The fact that this post is even being published is a big step.
So, please tell me I am not alone.....
