    I'm still confused about the movie, myself. I felt like if I had seen the movie without reading the books beforehand, I would have hated it. That being said, I had three friends, all very different personalities, that watched the movie without reading the books and loved it. Two out of three read Twilight afterward and also enjoyed it (except Adrienne who roles her eyes and points out to me every time SM writes "chuckle").

    I saw the movie trailer before I even dreamed I'd read the books, and it looked really dumb. Maybe it was because I was very anti-vampire before? But SM's vamps aren't your typical coffin-bound, goth makeup, fang bearing vamps. And they are oh so sexy.

    If you liked the books, you will like the movie almost certainly. If not...who knows.

    I didn't like the movie, sorry. :/ Just got absolutely bored. It's probably because the only movies I really, REALLY enjoy watching are drama movies (<333) or action movies. Tbh I side with Adrienne about the writing, too. :p

    @ Midori: I agree with you completely. Except I managed to finish the book, lol.

    Em doesn't like my book. *sigh* I guess my dream of us giggling like school girls together while we ogled R-Pat will never come to fruition. :(

    Hey, I read it! Edward WAS pretty sexy. I'm just saying, it could've been done SO much better. ;)

    You're right. It could have been. Maybe you'll like the second one better. Much more Jacob. :D If you're going to read it. Are you?

    You have to read it Em! :)
    I didn't think the writing was so bad either. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention though. They always suck me in and I can't put them down, no matter how many time I've read them. So I guess I'm so involved I don't notice, or I'm happy with dumb books, lol.

    App, I'll giggle with you some. :)

    Okay okay I'll read it. D: Eventually anyway. Next time I have to drop by the library, I'll go.

    Sure you wouldn't. D: Just like you wouldn't "force" GRRM to finish ADWD if you had the chance.

    Rach.........................................You did NOT just call him "R-Pat", like some cheap knockoff version of "K-Fed", did you? Please say you didn't. I thought you had respect for ol' Robbie boy. :p (Have you heard the soundtrack? Jeebus he's got a good voice! :D)

    Lol, who wouldn't! :D

    I think R-Patz and K-Stew are the little fan girl abbreviations. :D

    Yeah, Pattinson does have a good voice but you can't understand the lyrics! It's really funny actually. He's fun to impersonate.

    Yeaaah! Robs voice is so good! I heard that he wrote one of the songs himself and the girl that plays Rosalie showed it to the director and she liked it (ofc..) so they included it to the movie and the soundtrack...I wonder for whom he wrote it...*sigh*

    I agree, I don't think Stephanie wrote the books very well xD Compared to other fantasy and sci-fi books I've read, her writing is laughable. Still, I enjoyed reading the quadriology despite the anti-climatic ending xD [in book 4 - say no more].

    Enjoyed the first book. I finished it in two hours. I couldn't put it down. Great read. I finished New Moon in three hour and I just started Eclipse last night. I'm sure I'll knock it off later on this evening, if I have time. Edward so far is my favorite and Alice is an interesting character too.

    I just love this series. I'd say it is going to be one of my favorites for a while. I just watched the movie again last night. I'm also going to start Breaking Dawn this evening. What a great set!! I love the way everything ended with Eclipse.
