I just saw the movie trailer for Twilight, and Robert Pattinson (who played Cedric Diggory) is Edward.  Very nice casting.

THAT'S why he looks familiar! Okay, that makes me feel better. :)

I just finished reading the first book in a "I have to find out what everybody is jabbering on about" kind of mood. I enjoyed it, despite the fact that very little actually happens in it. It was a quick read, and yet still engaging. Not ground-breaking literature or anything, but hey, what is? :)

I liked it - I have been calling it literary Cheetos.  Not high in nutrition, but yummy and easy to put away quickly.  However, it could be because I am looking for something to fill the huge Harry Potter sized void in my reading agenda.

Heehee! That's a really good description of it. :D I'm normally not a big vampire fan, so I was more than a little hesitant to start, but I got involved without realizing how sucked in I became. I think that's a pretty good thing for a new author. :)

My mom really liked the Host (by the same author), and I read the prologue, but that's as far as I got.

She makes me jealous - BANG - her first book, and a hit series.  I have several partially finished novels, but can't ever seem to get them developed deep enough to merit completion.  I haven't read the Host  yet - I have taken a detour and started Wicked.

Definitely unfair. But then, I'm starting to give authors a lot of props for actually finishing things. I have so many unfinished projects lying around. It's not as easy to finish as I wish it was. Really need to get to work on that darned screenplay.

Twilight is the first book by Stephanie Meyers. It's about a girl and a vampire. It's ... like, it's not horrible. I've read worse books. I'm enjoying it. It's very popular, though I think it's pretty faddish in that. They're making a movie of it.

I'm into book three right now, and I must confess that I am considering smacking the main character upside the head, but that's probably just me. :)
