I've lost an entire evening to Twilight.
I blame William Kostakis.
He wrote a post on how real life teen boys shouldn't be measured against Edward Cullen in response to another author's stance that boys should be more like Edward. Ugh. I've already put my two cents in but I welcome you to do the same.
On my face book account I linked to William's post and some discussion with my FB followers erupted. The phrase 'Alex Reads Twilight' was dropped and as I had no idea what it meant (which is bad as I am a YA blogger), I immediately checked it on google.
Then I lost two hours.
Alex Reads Twilight is a series of YouTube posts by British musician Alex Day. He reads a chapter of Twilight and vlogs about it as he reads. You might be thinking about TwilightGuy here but don't. Alex basically mocks it from start to finish and it made my day. There are quotable comments (as you can see from the post's title) from start to finish. I love it. So much so that I viewed all the chapter responses and am hanging out for my next hit - hurry up Alex.
Do you know about Alex? And why did no one tell me?
I welcome you to add your favourite Alex Reads Twilight quote in the comment section :) Go forward, my friends, and "mock it like it's hot".
PS There is someone we would all recognise that pops up at one point in the series. Watch out for them!
