How was the weekend for everyone? Mine was pretty nice, and then because I have Friday off, I’ve got a three-day weekend comin’ up!
Still reading the “Twilight” series. These books are gonna kill me, I swear. It’s been a long time since I’ve been so into a group of characters in a story. It’s quite exhausting and I get emotional over some parts. Just when I tell myself that I’ll just read one more page before going to bed, that “one page” turns into two, three and then I’m done with that particular book.
I finished the third book, “Eclipse” on Saturday – sat in my room most of the time, deep, deep into the suspense and romance. Of course I had to stop and eat, but then I went right back to it. I started thinking that, if I finished the book that day, I would be able to go see the movie on Sunday. I finished the book, then looked at the time. It was 2am in the morning!
As a reward for all of that reading, I did go to see “Eclipse” before it had a chance to leave the theaters. It was pretty good! The movie did its own thing in some parts, but many of the details from the book were woven into the mix. I was impressed with the fight scenes, they lasted long enough and didn’t drag on. I was surprised that they used someone different to play the ravenous, vengeful vampire, “Victoria”. Based on how they described her in the third book, though, they cast her correctly again. It was driving me crazy, trying to figure out why the new Victoria looked so familiar, and then I found out she was played by Bryce Dallas Howard from “Spiderman 3” and “The Village”. Huh! Who knew?
Anyway, I’m now reading the last book, “Breaking Dawn”, and will be ready for that movie to come out when it comes out. Then I’ll have to find another book to sink my teeth into, no pun intended….Okay, maybe it was intended.
Next weekend, I’m going with a friend to see “Vampires Suck”. I know it’ll be pretty stupid, but it looks so funny. Some parodies don’t even interest me in their trailers, but this one still has me laughing:
Here’s a clip from the movie:
