Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.
You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.
Or you can follow along on our Arizona adventure on my 365 project blog.

And I still think there is just way to much blah blah blah to get to the climax in her books. 400+ pages to get to a measly 2 chapters of vampire fighting? You can only build up the suspense so long before it eventually stops becoming suspenseful.
I still think Jacob is the better choice. Yes, Jacob plays dirty, but he's only 16 for heaven's sake. He doesn't have 100's of years of practice at being patient and patronizingly polite. He's just acting like a normal 16 year old in that regard. And I think he hit the nail right on the head when he told Bella that Edward was a drug and so she can't live without him now, but that he would've been healthier for her, like the air and the sun. Because Edward is exactly like a drug-addictive and destructive! Which is why I can't understand why everybody loves him so much and thinks it's such true love? Addiction and true love are not the same. ug.
And it was all awkward how Rosalie and Jasper just launched into these random long monologues of their lives. And I still see Alice as a stick figure in my head. She just has no personality!
So I think I'm done. I don't think that Dawn will Break for me. Because then I can imagine my own outcome, one in which Bella suddenly comes to her senses and runs, not walks, straight into Jacob's arms.
Of course, then I always feel bad being a harsh critic because someday when I write a book I'll likely be terribly crushed and personally offended by each and every bad review. Plus when I really like something that somebody else doesn't I somehow always feel like I'm then being judged by the person who didn't like whatever it is I liked. So to all you out there that like the vampire love story....I still like you. Can we still be friends?
I'm such a dork!!!!! I'm going to bed now before I embarrass myself further.
