a) are over 30
b) don't have any teenage daughters
c) live under a rock
*Laughing* The Twilight books and a certain character in them, named "Edward", seem to be sweeping all young women completely off their feet. :P
I encourage you to read this review... I'm not saying that you 'shouldn't' read the books, just sayin' that maybe a little research should be involved before you do so. Don't be taken in by the popularity ( like I almost did!) without a little discernment!

Jane Eyre. My fictional heroine. Just when her dreams and her longings were being fulfilled, a secret was revealed that caused every happy and joyful aspect of her life to be crushed. She could have turned her back on morality and purity and gone where her heart led. She could have followed her fleshly passions and done what the world would have deemed as 'right'. But instead she did what was noble and right and true - and suffered - for a time. She suffered for 4 years... while keeping busy, serving those around her. Then God did what he has promised to do.... He blessed his righteous daughter with all that she desired.
Jane to Mr. Rochester:
"'Oh comply!' it said, 'Think of his misery, think of his danger--look at his state when left alone...Who in the world cares for you? or who will be injured by what you do?'...Still indomitable was the reply--'I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself. I will keep the law given by God, sanctioned by man. I will hold to the principles received by me when I was sane, and not mad--as I am now. Laws and principles are not for the times when there is no temptation: they are for such moments as this, when body and soul rise in mutiny against their rigour, stringent are they; inviolate they shall be...with my veins running fire, and my heart beating faster than I can count its throbs. Preconceived opinions, foregone determinations, are all I have at this hour to stand by: there I plant my foot!'" Chapter 27, pg. 279
Delight yourself in the LORD
Commit your way to the LORD;
He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,

Yesterday, as I was alone, (but not really alone!) just me, my thoughts and God, I was convicted that I needed to change how I was living. I needed to change how I thought of reality. Yeah, most realities are hard and and they can seem to keep us from our joy in the LORD. But as a girl saved by God's grace I will choose to live in this reality: God's abounding love.
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus died to save sinners - of whom I am the worst. But for the very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
~1 Timothy 1:14-17
