Why, oh why?

Can someone explain to me what is up with the Twilight phenomenon?

At least with Harry Potter, I knew about the books years before the first movie came out. Not so with Twilight. It was only when I found out about the movie that I found out about the book.
And that was less than a year ago, thanks to EW.com.
Or should I say EtWilight.com?
The amount of Twilight articles posted every single day on that site! Wow.

I still don’t get what all the fuss is about.
The book as far as I know is far from selling as well as HP did before its movie adaptations.

Yet MovieTickets.com reported that Twilight had sold more tickets on its site earlier this week than Bolt, Quantum of Solace, Australia, and Milk combined!

It’s like with High School Musical 1.
Why was it one of the most-watched TV movies ever at the time?

The everlasting mysteries of teenage girls’ favorite things eva’.
Or is that tweens now?

And I’m off.
Gonna go throw up.

  1. If you have been keeping up with my blog on “Twilight,” you will see I am having the same reaction.

    Maybe a gender difference…
