"I just read the first book, it's ridiculous, it's like crack cocaine. I read it for 10 hours straight until I finished it," Dawson, who will appear in Parts Per Billion with Twilight's vampire heartthrob Robert Pattinson, told PEOPLE at the Seven Pounds premiere in Hollywood Monday.
"I actually made a vow to myself not to buy the second, third and fourth book until Thursday, because that's when I'll be done with all this press, and I'll be able to read over Christmas vacation."
But, she adds, the addiction will cut into some quality family time. "My dad is going to hate me, because I spend zero time with him, reading these books," she said. "It's like Judy Blume and Anne Rice had a child and made this book. I'm so attracted."
What else is the 29-year-old stunner attracted to? Authenticity.
"You don't want to fall in love with something that's not real," she explained when asked what she looks for in a man. "You have to also have compassion and self-love."
While she may be attracted to the "monsters" in Stephanie Meyer's books, Dawson says some kinds of love just scare her. "It's not healthy. That whole idea of you complete me disturbs me. Like, well, if you complete me, that's kind of a two-headed monster. Isn't that kind of scary?"
Her solution for lasting love? "To be honest with each other."
