With shaky legs, ignoring the fact that my action was useless, I followed [Edward] into the forest. The evidence of his path had disappeared instantly. There were no footprints, the leaves were still again, but I walked forward without thinking. I could not do anything else. I had to keep moving. If I stopped looking for him, it was over. Love, life, meaning… over. -Bella, New Moon
Only 4 more days! The premiere of New Moon! This was my least favorite book of the series, but I’m still excited to see it, because that means we’re that much closer to my favorite book, Eclipse! Can you tell I’m excited? Match and I are meeting up with Outdoor Couple for a double date to see the premiere on opening night. I’ve never gone to a movie on opening night, and I know it’s going to be insanely crowded, but it’s going to be so worth it to see Edward on the big screen. 🙂
I have a rich history with the Twilight books, and to me the books represent more than a hugely addictive series about a sexy vampire boy toy. The first book was sent to me by my former friend Coast Sister. I never thought I would be into vampire books, but I trusted her judgment and I was soon hooked. Now at that time in my life, I was pretty anti relationships. I had recently broken up with Unemployed Guy and I was back in the single scene. To say I was bitter and single was an understatement. I wasn’t ready for romance. Then I read Twilight, with Edward and his incredibly romantic sentiments, and I melted.
I met Match just a few weeks into reading Eclipse. The timing couldn’t have been better, because in my eyes, Match was my Edward. Pre-Twilight I probably would have rolled my eyes at Match when he’d make his sweet and romantical comments about how incredible I was, and how he was the luckiest guy on earth. But the Twilight series helped me find the hopeless romantic of my youth, the one that I thought was long since trampled after countless broken hearts.
I can also identify with Bella and her clumsiness, and how she feels during the breakup. I think all of us girls have been there once, with that hollow empty feeling like we’re ripping apart at the seams.
Since meeting them, I’ve gotten both Outdoor Girl and Couple Wife hooked on Twilight, and Baker Chic and I have been talking about the series since we first met. After we both see the movie I’m sure BC and I will sit down and dissect every scene just like we did with the first movie.
Oh, and for those of you that are my loyal readers, perhaps you’ve put together that Birthday Twin just may be a version of my Jacob? He’s a less obsessive version, but there’s definitely that Jacob like quality, especially at the Halloween party! But don’t worry, our household is Team Edward all the way. 😉
As I mentioned, New Moon is my least favorite of the series, so I’m hoping that the directors actually spice it up a bit. I felt like this book was a bit emo, but it was also necessary, to get us to the next book. And we needed to see Jacob and Bella’s relationship develop. Is anyone else going to see the premiere? What are your thoughts on the Twilight series?
