Humor at the bookstore!

So I was browsing the local Barnes & Noble...I get totally lost in that store, I am much more use to shopping at Hastings. But anyways I was looking at the YA books and I came across something that just made me die laughing. What is that you ask? Nightlight, A Parody, apparentlly it came out back in November, but this is the first I have seen of it!



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. And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon 's hilarious send-up of Twilight . 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. From the Trade Paperback edition

Ok,ok,ok... I am a Twilight fan and love Stephanie Meyer, however how can you not think this is funny! I think it's genius! Plus, I don't think I have seen this before in books. It's not uncommon to do spoof movies that make fun of a bunch other movies. I seriously almost bought it, but figured it was such a short read, that I would wait until I get my kindle =). You can read the first chapter here. The reviews are decent on this, let me know what you guys think of it! (FYI while I was linking this to amazon, apparently there is a whole line of these books! Where the heck have I been? Oh yeahh my own little lizzie world lol)
