“About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.”
Ok I have seriously got the giggles and I can’t stop. Enter Nighlight, a parody. Just looking at the cover made me laugh, and when I read the blurb, I literally had to hold my stomach from laughing so hard.
“Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?
Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.”
I am a Twilight fan, no doubt. I enjoyed the books, and am very excited for the New Moon movie to be released in a couple weeks. So why am I writing about this? Well, at the end of the day, spoofing to me is a curious form of flattery. As with most spoofs, you’d have to have read the books to understand the humor parallels and get the actual parody, so it wouldn’t be something that I’d recommend reading in isolation. But if you’ve read the Twilight saga and you’re looking for a good laugh, this book looks like it will hit the spot. I cannot wait for the movie version of this – I know it’s coming, just don’t know when yet.
If you want to buy Nightlight, it’s available today at Amazon. You can also read a copy of the first chapter at Entertainment Weekly just to see what’s hilariously in store.
I just did, and I think I just peed my pants! Hilarious!
