Well, I tried to resist...

Sorry if I'm a bit less wordy than usual round these parts this week. I started reading that fucking "Twilight" series in earnest on Sunday, finished the first book yesterday, and am currently smack dab in the middle of the 2nd one as of today. My boss is out at an off-site meeting. I should be close to done by the time I head home, at which point I plan on stopping to grab the last two books in the series.

::sigh:: Fucking weird-ass books...

I didn't hate the movie, but thought it was pretty weak. I like the genre so gave it a chance. Watching the director's commentary on the DVD explained why the movie felt empty. I truly believe she basically just strung together scenes she thought were cool and left out a lot of the structure.

Lilly is pushing me towards the books saying "they are so much better!" and I will probably cave and read them. Until then I may reread Kim Harrison's series.

Bwwahahahahaaa!

Nuke, I agree. I loved watching the movie commentating with Robert Pattinson, Catherine Hardwicke and Kristen Stewart. They were hilarious and it did explain quite a bit of what was missing.

The only thing I know about this Twighlight is that my coworker's sixth-grade daughter saw the movie seven times.

Reason enough for me to avoid it.

See that's the funny thing, Emaw. My 12 year ols niece loves the series as much as my 35 year old twin. IT MAKES NO SENSE!

But then again, one of my friends' husbands read through the first book in one day, and the only thing that bothered him was how "bitchy" the main character was toward a guy that liked her in the book. So, I don't know what to tell ya. You might try reading it, just so you can judge for yourself. You can borrow my copy. :)
