Thanks for your Twilight review Sharon. I have shared before that I turned my nose up at the Twilight series many times because I am not a vampire fan. My friend Lindy kept telling me I *had* to read them though and so I finally relented and purchased Twlight.

Once I started, I couldn’t stop and finished the first three books in about a week. I read Breaking Dawn as soon as I could get my hands on it.

I thought the movie was well done – attempting to play to a broader audience than the book. I too was disappointed in the ‘rushed’ develpment of relationships, but thought it was one of the best book to movie adaptations I have seen. I enjoyed it very much and hope to see it again before it leaves theaters.

Enjoy reading the rest of the series. I can’t wait to hear what you think of the other books 😉


Hi Sharon
Just to say that my daughter has read all of her books and finds her book hard to put down and is looking forward to watching the movie in December when it come to english cinemas.

I like to wish our american friends a happy thankgiving from the UK


Hi Vee and Esther! Thanks for chiming in. I am already anxious to see the movie again, as is my daughter. I have started reading ‘New Moon’ and am nearly a fourth the way through. So far it is quite good. Yes, I did know Pattison also played Cedric. Ironic in that Cedric was written to be immensely handsome with all the girls swooning over him, much like Edward in that respect!

Hi Sharon!

Thanks for the post on "Twilight". My daughter got me started on the series, she said I would enjoy the book. Well, I started the first book in August and am now reading the fourth book. I went to see the movie today and enjoyed it immensely. [Did you know that Robert Pattison (Edward) portrayed Cedric in two of the Harry Potter movies? I read that online somewhere in the casts’ bio’s before the movie came out.]

I haven’t been so enthralled with a series of books since I read your first TSBO book. Yes, the "Twilight" books are an easy read and I have enjoyed them all. I, too, highly recommend the books and the movie. As far as a second movie, I believe they have already initiated the start of it.

I hope your daughter gets a chance to read the books since she enjoyed the movie.

Vee, I think you might enjoy the books. I didn’t know if I’d enjoy them, but, was pleasantly surprised after reading them. I agree with Sharon, though, that the books are better than the movie. So much more detail in the books.

Thank you Sharon for keeping us so wonderfully informed. You are a true gem!

Wishing you all "Happy Holidays!"

Take care and God Bless.



Thanks Sharon your enthusiasm for a great book is contagious. When I get the chance I shall definitely check this series out!!!!
Excellent info as always and I thank you for it!
