Meru Puri,Twilight , weekend....etc?
Let me tell you about my weekend so far. Yesterday, we had a graduation party for my brother and four birthdays for my brothers and sister-in-laws. Lots of work. Before that, I had gone to the library to check out some books. I got volumes 3 and 4 of Meru Puri, some hmong folk tales, and Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.
I finished Meru Puri. It was a very...romantic story, I guess. It's kinda hard to describe. I read one of the hmong books I checked out and realized I'd read the story before, but I had forgotten most of the details. Then I read about half the book of Twilight.
There are lots of things I could criticize about the book so far. For example, the writing is teen novel style. The descriptive writing is really just pointing out the obvious. Some of the description is repetitive and annoying. I keep running across sentences like, "A shock went through my body" or "His eyes..." or "His bronze hair..." or things like that that really get on my nerves. To me, I kinda just wish the story would move on. Anyway, I like the book better than I thought I would as well. The story is actually very funny. I hope everyone knows it is about a love between a vampire and a human girl. Anyway, every time Edward (the vampire) talks to the girl about her or touches her, it seems like he's saying, "You'll be tastier when you have food and sugar in you." or "Good. You're still healthy. I'll eat you tomorrow." or something. Sorry, I just keep thinking of it that way since he's a vampire, I guess.
Okay, I guess that's all for today. Have a great day everyone!
