Twilight series 'sucked' me in

As much as I loathe being herded to and from work by bus and train with hundreds of strangers, I also look forward to it every day. I enjoy this time for several reason; I love to plug into my iPod, zone out, and become completely absorbed in a book. I recently jumped on the bandwagon and started reading the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. The series consists of four books: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. I know, I know, this is a total teen sensation, but I couldn't resist checking it out. Guilty pleasure I suppose. Ever since I started the first book, I have become obsessed! Reading till 2 a.m., then waking up excited to pick it back up on my morning commute to work. I am currently on the second book, New Moon, and as sad as I will be when I finish it, I can't put it down. I haven't seen the movie and I won't reveal anything to spoil the outcome or details of the books, but I will say they are creative, easy reads. So, if you are commuting to work or have free time between your kids' naps, during TV time, or once they're in bed, I highly recommend reading the Twilight series. Have you read any of the Twilight books? Is there anyone who has read the books and seen the movie? Any disappointments? I am excited to start the third book and am interested in hearing your thoughts!
