New Moon Reviews!

OK...New Moon has been out for a week. If you're like me, you had to see it opening weekend, if not the very first showing at 12:01 Friday morning. It's time to share your thoughts. Did the movie follow the plot of the book? Was it everything you expected it to be? How did you like the wolf pack? Did you think Edward was in the movie enough? How much screaming was going on during the time you saw it? Did anyone switch over from Team Edward to Team Jacob after this one because I was tempted. Did you think the ending, borrowing from third book was OK?


*For those of you who haven't seen the movie, be warned: These comments contain spoilers!

November's Book of the Month: Thirst

November's book discussion is Thirst by Christopher Pike. It's actually three books in one volume. These books were written by Pike starting with the first story, The Last Vampire in 1994. The series of books contained six titles, and the remaining three books will be included in Thirst: Volume 2.

We will be discussing Thirst at our monthly meeting on December 3rd at the Tecumseh Branch Library at 3:30p.m. You are welcome to join us! If you can't make it, please read along with us and comment on the post that I'll place here on December 1st.

BBC Grudge Match: Edward vs. Jacob

We are only days away from the New Moon premiere, so let's have a grudge match for old time's sake! Yes, we know how the story ends, but let's take ourselves back to the end of New Moon. Should Bella take Edward back? Should she explore the new relationship with Jacob? Who really is better for Bella--vampire or werewolf? Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?

Jacob or Edward? Weigh in on this grudge match below by clicking on "comments".

Bella's Birthday : Behind the Scenes

I thought this was interesting, and I especially like how Jackson Rathbone and Rob Pattinson have a laugh after Edward pushes him away from Bella so aggressively. :-)

Forks, WA, featured on Today Show

The little town of Forks, Washington, in the Pacific Northwest is the setting for the books we love by Stephenie Meyer. Because of the popularity of the books and now the Twilight Saga movies, this town has become a Mecca for many Twilighters. This morning, on the Today Show, there was a really nice piece on Forks, and how this town of just over 3,000 is coping with it's newfound popularity.
