Twilight Book Review!


Georgia, who commented on my last self portrait challenge reminded me that I haven't given my book review for "Twilight" yet! I can't believe I neglected this seeing as how I am about 80 pages away from finishing the sequel "New Moon"!
I adored this book! I was instantly sucked in when it started talking about the location. We have visited Port Ludlow quite a few times and the scenery and weather reminded me so much of the descriptions of Forks Washington that I immediately could picture what the author was describing!
I loved the simple and believeable dialogue that the characters had with one another, it was written well and flowed so smoothly that I didn't really care how often Bella went to school and came home! And I'm not so far out of highschool that I couldn't relate to those parts.
When my friend dropped off the book for me to read Bri brought it downstairs and said "Does Diane know you at all? It's a book about Vampires!" And now here I am rapidly sailing through the second book wondering what will happen next!

My FAVORITE part about these books that I just discovered yesterday is that one of the musical inspirations for Stephenie Meyer the author is.....yes that's right...... MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE!!!! The whole time I've been reading I think of Gerard as the Edward character......

When I read the acknowledgments in the back of "New Moon" and saw my bands name I said "I knew it!" out loud. Clearly Mrs. Meyer has EXCELLENT taste in music!

So now I will shortly be moving onto a review of "New Moon"! Today I stopped by the local Barnes and Noble to pick up "Eclipse" the third book, only to find they had sold out of every single copy! That was quite disappointing. I may have to do some online ordering!

You're going to a signing! You better give details.

The month skipping was one of my favorite parts..so powerful!
