Twilight

I forgot to mention one thing in my extremely long list of posts today. We were all sick this week - Bailey missed three days of school, all three kids were up every night, they thought poor Carter had RSV, but luckily, everything is looking up. However, due to the fact that I was holding sick children all day, my house went to pot, dishes piled, laundry strewn, and I emersed my self in the Stephanie Meyer's series. They were so dang good! I read all three books this week and could not put them down. I am now officially obsessed and so so so sad I have to wait until August for the fourth book to come out!

I am also so worried that the movie will not do the books justice. I can only hope. I found this video someone made from utube on a fan site. They took clips from various movies and made it look like a trailer for her series. It is so beautifully done - Chris even went out and bought the CD that has the song "18th floor balcony" because we both liked it so much. I really hope you watch and enjoy.

Wow, that looks really intense. I've heard that this series is good, and my friend told me that I could borrow her books as soon as her other friend returns them to her. I want to get started on them!

I'm so glad you read them! Now we are Sisters of the Twilight. I know, I'm weird. Did they suck you in, or what?

Ooo! We should plan a trip to see the movie together! I know, flying to see a movie sounds crazy, but we could...

I LOVE these books. I just re-read them and I too cannot wait for the next one. The movies should be VERY interesting.

My 13 yo daughter loves them too.

oh! If you go to her website www.stephaniemeyer.com you can see who they have picked to play the parts in the movie AND read an exerpt (the first chapter I think) of Twilight (from Edward's point of view). It is intense. She is writing that AND book 4.

Lori, I went to that site, that first chapter was good, that will be an interesting book.

ummm I'm finally glad to have found someone who shares my love...no...passion for these books. Does this mean I have a buddy to see the movie with?
