Twilight

Kelly and I have read the Twilight series. Yes, that is right, Kelly read it with me. Several of my friends were planning a girls' night to see the movie together. Kelly wanted to come with me. I think it is cute that Kelly wanted to experience opening night with me. We had a great time and I am glad that Kelly joined us!

My opinion of the movie vs. the book: I loved the book. It was well written and hard to put down--an easy read. It had good conversation flow, and is a true love story. The movie, on the other hand, was good but it left me cold. I thought that Edward was cute, but not the drop-dead gorgeous person he was described as in the book. A lot of the characters seemed this way, but I still enjoyed it. If you haven't read the books, you should. They are a fun read! --emily

Addendum: I went and saw the move for a second time and fell in love with the characters. They just need a new make up artist. Can't wait for "New Moon".

Looks fun! I'm not going until Saturday. I'm really looking forward to it! I have read the book, so I'm interested to see how I like the movie. Glad your hubby came too! Jer is SOOOO not into this whole "vampire book". He thinks it's a little silly. Oh well!

Okay, props to REAL men who see Twilight! All of my friends were shocked when I turned them down for Twilight dates, because I was going with my husband. He loved it!

I'm impressed that Kelly read the books AND went to the movie with you. I agree with your thoughts on the movie. Edward grew on me a little, but he still wasn't what us women pictured!
