In 2005 I had just finished reading Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and the Mayfair Witches, and need something more to read. So, I went in search of more vampire related novels. I did a search on Amazon where I found a great number of books to read, among them Twilight. Once It arrived, the book sat on my shelf for a good while. I finally got around to reading it February 2006. By the second chapter I was hooked, I had a hard time putting it down. I couldn't believe how good it was and how easily I was sucked into the story. Immediatley after finishing it, I read it again. I have read it several times since... I don't dare open my hardcover of Twilight, I'm afraid it will fall apart. LOL!
The Movie... [no spoilers]
When I heard they were doing a Twilight movie I was very hesitant at first. I thought "oh god they are gonna ruin it" cause well Hollywood has gotten it wrong many other times. But then the trailers started coming out, they were just brilliant. That's when I started getting my hopes up thinking, maybe they got it right this time. From then on I couldn't wait to see this film.
I just got back from seeing the film. Now I don't want to go all fangirl... but that was just so frikkin awesome. I loved every mintue of it. The did change a few things, but they were minor. For me it was perfect, I wasn't disappointed at all. They did an amazing job. I loved the instrumental background music.
Most know this already, but on November 22nd Summit Entertainment announced they are moving forward with the production of New Moon.
