Team Edward

So I finally finished the last book...and wow, "Breaking Dawn" totally made "Eclipse" bearable! I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

First, Bella finally gets out of her whiny phase!!! I was almost considering not reading the last book b/c I was so frustrated with her character in the third...but it was well worth it. And I like her a lot more as a vampire, and so does she.

Second, Jacob wasn't as bad either, and I really enjoyed the chapters from his perspective...but I was expecting him to hook up with Leah, but I understand why he didn't. Crazy werewolves!

Last, I just adore Edward! He is so loving & PATIENT, even when he doesn't need to be. It he is the epitome of unconditional love, ahhhh..... *sigh*.....

So, you might be wondering if I plan on going to the movie opening night. Well, I want to, but I don't think I can handle all the teeny-boppers in the audience....which is why I like to go to the very late showings....and in case people try to bring babies. People talking, babies crying, kids kicking my seat & being disruptive in a movie theater is one of my major pet peeves...which is why I put Disney/Pixar movies on my Netflix queue...then I can pause when Eric starts talking ;-)

So, if you haven't read the books, I would really suggest it. I LOVED how it ended and if you stopped halfway through the series you are missing out. BUT, I still don't think it is appropriate for teenagers, especially the last book. No explicit sex scenes...not by a long shot...but way too much heat & desire for the teenage audience, just my point of view.

I think that the reason I didn't like it was because there weren't enough explicit sex scenes.

And I read an online summary of BD. I can't do it.

I read breaking dawn and it made me break out in yawns.

That may have been the lamest comment to ever be commented. Yay for me!

Are you going to buy a "Stupid Twilight T-shirt"? I saw a new trailer for the movie on Monday. There is a scene where Bella drops an apple in the cafeteria and Edward catches it in his cold sparkly hands in a pose to reference the cover to the book. I threw up a little in my mouth.

No, I am not going to buy one of those shirts...they are what gave me the idea for the title. And sadly, I saw the trailer but didn't pay attention to that part. The movie is either going to be really good or terrible.

Eclipse was not my favorite either and I did get annoyed at Bella many times for always picking out something to whine about but I loved the story as a whole and LOVED the ending and all of Breaking Dawn. Their love was amazing!!!!!!
