Welcome to the Twilight book club! WARNING: Do not read the following post if you would not like to know what happens in the second half of the book.
I gotta say, it was hard to put the book down. There was so much action from chapter 13 through the end that I stayed up reading it until 1am. Keep reading to see our discussion, then tell us what you think in the comments! Keep reading »
Welcome to the Twilight book club! WARNING: Do not read the following post if you would not like to know what happens in the first half of the book.
We’ll be discussing the events through chapter 12, when Edward takes Bella into the forest. Out of respect for other readers DO NOT GIVE AWAY ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS AFTER THAT, even if you’ve already read the entire novel.
Amelia, Annika, Emily, and I got the discussion going this morning over IM, but we want you to keep it going in the comments. I think we’ve all come to one conclusion: This book totally turns us on, even though there isn’t any sex. Keep reading »
Now that we’ve started reading “Twilight” for tomorrow’s book club discussion, we’ve totally joined the legion of girls who have a huge crush on Edward Cullen, and by default, Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward in the upcoming movie. Pattinson has been doing a lot of interviews lately and is giggly and charming in all of them. After the jump, a collection of conversations with the actor that will make you even more excited to see the movie on November 21. Keep reading »
When we first heard about the upcoming movie “Twilight,” we were interested mainly because Robert Pattinson stars in it, and he’s extremely good looking. We had never read any of the books or heard of author Stephenie Meyer. And then we started seeing trailers for the movie, and we were even more intrigued. Now, Amelia, Annika, and I have decided to read Twilight before we see the movie, which comes out Nov. 21, and we’re starting today. There are just two-and-a-half weeks before the movie hits theaters, and the book has 498 pages, but we think it can be done, and we want you to join us! For next Wednesday, we’re reading the first 12 chapters. Come visit The Frisky on Nov. 12 to discuss it, whether you’re reading it for the first time or the seventh. Keep reading »
I’m going to have to go with “Yes, sort of.” Being that Twilight‘s author, Stephanie Meyers, is a devout Mormon, I didn’t really expect to crack open the first book and get some vampire erotica. Add to that the fact that the books’ target audience is supposed to be teenagers, and you’re going to be disappointed if you wanted a blow-by-blow description of how blood suckers are in the sack. You’ll have to watch “True Blood” for that. Keep reading »
So, I basically spent the weekend reading “Twilight” and have moved on to the second book in the series and needless to say I’m hooked. More on that later, but in the meantime, Robert Pattinson recorded a song for the movie, out November 21, called “Never Think.” It’s quite Jeff Buckley-esque. Listen to it after the jump… Keep reading »
