Twilight

I didn't know what all of the Twilight hype was about so I decided to rent the movie when it came out on DVD (blu-ray..is the best way to watch it lol).  I totally fell in love with the story line and most definitely went ga-ga over the whole Edward Bella phenom so I went out and bought the boxed set of books.  I was immediately hooked. I mean seriously.  I read all 4 books and the first few chapters of Midnight Sun over a span of one weekend.  My husband thinks I am nuts....

Grant it the target audience is for Young Adults / Tweens (and I do still consider myself to be "young" at heart).. but I think every woman would agree that they need an "Edward" (...or even a Jacob) in their life don't you?  Someone who is chivalrous, a little old-fashioned -in the most romantic sense of the word, someone with hercules-size strength, gorgeous and would do anything for you.. yep, every woman's perfect man.

Anyways.. who is a Twi-nerd right along with me?  Hands up anyone?  What was your favorite part of the book or film? 

 

:-)

I have yet to see or read any of the series!!  I am usually late for everything!!   LOL   I already decided that I want to read the books first - the books are always better!!!  We'll see how long it takes to get that done :) 

After reading this though, I kind of want to read them sooner rather than later!!  I LOVE getting sucked into a good book - and for a whole weekend!!  sounds relaxing!

I also didn't know what all of the Twilight hype was about.  I bought the movie about a week after it came out and I also totally loved it! I as well fell in love with the story line instantly. Yes, I'm a romantic at heart. lol. No doubt ga-ga over Edward Bella!!! if I am this hooked just from watching the movie, I must get to the books! seriously.  We ARE still young! hehee. Oh and yes, I completely agree... every woman needs a litte "Edward" or even some "Jacob" in their life. *sigh*

Anywho.. I'll let ya know how much more I love it when I read the books. lol

xoxo, Your fellow Twi-nerd ; )

I am totally obsessed with the books. I only have a couple of chapters left in the last book, and I am so sad to see it end.

My friend Destiny is totally obsessed with this and she got me totally hooked.  She made me buy the book and I was almost finished with it before it came out on DVD.  We went over to her friend's house and had Twilight party!  I swear....we had Edward's and Bella first meal, well Bella's of mushroom ravioli since Edward didn't eat.....it was insane the way we all dressed up AND had the soundtrack playing.  It was like we were teenagers again at 30.  That was the first time I saw the movie .....March 21st when it came out on DVD at her friend's house...the book is WAY BETTER but the movie is intriguing to see the passion take place.  I am pretty slow with reading the series...I have college full-time and 2 kids so I am only on New Moon but I have watched the movie now 8 times and my daughter who is 7 has seen it 6 times and loves it!  She says "this is my favorite part" on soooo many scenes....I love EDWARD and we all do need to have a man like that!  I wish she could read the book but she is not at that reading level yet.  READ THE BOOK FIRST THAN SEE THE MOVIE!!!!!!

The Twilight party sounded like lots of fun. hehe  Sophia loves watching the movie too.  When she watched the Nick Choice Awards she about screamed her little head off when she saw Taylor Lautner.  It was too funny.
