New Moon Sneak Peek at Comic-Con

Here's two clips that were shown exclusively at last week's Comic-Con convention. They are not top-quality, but it's still fun to see a bit of the upcoming movie!

Eclipse Movie News!

Yes, this news is about Eclipse, the third movie, even though the world has not yet seen the second movie, New Moon. As you may already know, New Moon is set for a November 20, 2009 release, and Eclipse will be released just a short seven months later on June 30, 2010. (Which, by the way, I think is super-awesome! Thanks Summit Entertainment for NOT pulling a Warner Bros. and holding back the third film to suit your own needs!)

Long time rumors were confirmed that 30 Days of Night director David Slade will be the director for Eclipse. Also, it was revealed that there is a casting call out for three characters: Riley, and the Clearwater sibs, Leah and Seth. It was also revealed that shooting for the film will take place in Vancouver from August 17 through October 31 (I guess many of the cast will be vampires for Halloween!).

And finally, we have a new cast member to announce: Xavier Samuel (pictured above) has been cast in the role of Riley. Riley was the vamp from Victoria's army who have targeted Bella. He should have a juicy role in what we hope will be an awesome fight scene between Riley and Edward.

Taylor Lautner interview

For you Jacob fans, here's a cool interview with the seriously nice-guy Taylor Lautner:

Book Discussion: Mortal Instruments Series

July's discussion was on the Mortal Instruments series of books by Cassandra Clare. If you want to read them, start with the first book, City of Bones. I think we all agreed at the Bella's Book Club meeting that this series was a really good one. The books keep you going, with it's thrilling ups and downs.

Here's some comments that I picked up from the discussion. Feel free to post your own comments below.

"There were a lot of surprises in this book and I didn't see things coming!"

"We know that the City of Bones is a reference to the place that the Silent Brothers live, and we know that the City of Glass is Alicante, but what is the City of Ashes?"

"I was really mad at the ending [of City of Bones] to find out that [two unnamed characters] can't be boyfriend and girlfriend!"

New book selection for August discussion

There was some confusion at the Bella's Book Club meeting on July 2 about the next book discussion. Originally, we selected Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side as our August selection, however, DUE TO BOOK AVAILABILITY, we have postponed that book until September.

Instead, we have chosen Rosemary Clement-Moore's Maggie Quinn, Girl vs. Evil series. There are three books in the series, which is really quite good. Start with Maggie's high school book, Prom Dates from Hell. Maggie Quinn is a fun, multi-dimensional character who really becomes your best friend on each book's adventure. The books are spiced with supernatural suspense, laced with romance, and sprinkled with humor. Enjoy them!

The Maggie Quinn series, in order:
1. Prom Dates from Hell
2. Hell Week
3. Highway to Hell
