    Either I am stupid (probably) or there is seriously not a thread for the Twilight Saga... and if that is the case, then here it is.

    Have you read them? Who's your favourite vampire? Let's talk about it because I am dying here!! Thanks =)

    My favourite is Jasper... and Alice. But I'm in love with Jasper.

    And I find James to be unfortunately attractive.

    Oh, and my mom likes Jacob better than Edward... lame.

    did your mom read the books?

    Alice is 1 of my other favorite characters. Have you read the part of Midnight Sun on the author's website? I hope she publishes it...

    Yes my mom read the books. Once I finished Twilight, I threw it at her and said "read". She was hooked just like I was and finished them in a week, just like I did. She loves Jacob though. I haven't got to talk to her since she finished Breaking Dawn today... I hope she changed her mind. She saw the Renesmee and Jacob thing coming, but I didn't. Heh.

    I read Midnight Sun and was very upset when it ended at 264 pages. I really really really hope that she finishes it. I think she will... Edward won't leave her alone until she does. I also hope she does the other three books from his point of view... I'm so obsessed. I want to get her alone and question her about Jasper. Those characters are all just so real. It's so odd.

    I know, I was so sad when I finished what was written so far of Midnight Sun...may have even found it more interesting than the original book

    I may have to reread the series soon just because I miss the characters!

    I've dreamed about them every night since I started Twilight. Even Rosalie, who I really don't like... everyone vampire has been there but Edward. I figure he's too busy with Bella to make an appearance in my dreams =).

    Getting inside of Edward's mind was like being a pirate and finding the best booty ever. Plus, vampires are way cooler than humans, and getting to hear how they thought and felt was really just grand.

    That's funny. I read your blog thing about the first book, and I really wanted to leave a comment but then, cause I don't have Livejournal account I couldn't.


    I didn't expect liking the book much, too be honest, as Dracula is a favourite and I was told Meyer's vampires were "fakes". But I loved it. I want to be a vampire. I love all the vampires to be honest. Though I did like Edward a lot more in the last book. (I love the whole idea with him seemingly being all nice and warm and beautiful *girly laugh* Teehee)
    I'm not planning on watching the film, as I always find that the films ruin the magic. (If I'm able to resist.)

    The film isn't even anything like the book. Totally different. I still loved it. Sometimes I don't think Stephenie really got some of her character descriptions right or they weren't clear, and the movie helped with that... though I'm not so sure Robert Pattinson is a good Edward... or Kristen Stewart a good Bella.

    I think that Meyer's vampires are the real ones and everyone else was wrong :)... but that's just me...

    and I didn't know you read my livejournal lol

    I loved all the actor choices for the movie, except Jasper..who I think looked like a deer in headlights...

    I loved Jasper. I think that had Jackson Rathbone been given more lines, he could have delivered a better performance. I watched interviews of him talking about Jasper's character, and he actually had knew Jasper pretty well. I thought he was great.

    I also thought that Laurent looked better in the film than how Meyer described him in the novel.

    How long does it take to get into these? I read about 3 chapters of Twilight in the bookshop (being a nice bookshop, it lets me do that :D) and thought it was dire - did any of you think that at first? I'm quite curious about these so I do want to read them... but not if it doesn't improve.
