Almost every girl in my grade is reading it. I've never read it, is it a typical romance book?

Post by: itsthefiveofus on February 26, 2008, 08:27:12 am
ha it is soooo not a typical romance book. I think its a lot better. It's really good. Pretty much a girl falls in love with a vampire and stuff. It goes alot deeper hehe.

Haha, I love this series.

Not so much looking forward to the movie, because I anticipate a lot of butchering of the plot, and also because Kristin Stewart is playing Bella (noooo...) but I guess RPattz is Edward, so it won't be as bad...

Um. Just waiting for Breaking Dawn. Book-Canon, plzkthnx.

I recently found out about this on imdb, I'm a Kristen Stewart fan (we even share the same birthday!) and I'm going to buy the books this week.

It sounds great, I went through a Vampire romance novel phase. This doesn't seem like the stuff I've read though. I highly recommend anything by Christine Feehan, its hot hot hot! One book and your addicted, its not really Vampire, but similar.

Official HD Trailer up on MySpace Trailer Park now!

Check it out, I don't think the preview is that great...maybe they will have different one's that aren't so cheesy. Robert Pattinson looks like he's not taking the role of Edward seriously as he is portrayed in the book. Just my opinion. KS is just perfect for Bella!

A little off-topic, but I saw 'The Host' is already out (Meyer's new series) ... wow, I'm totally out of the loop.

Has anyone read it? Is it any good? Should I keep my opinion of Steph Meyer untainted by sticking to the Twilight series? Opinions plz, lol.

I read one review saying it was dull, not even close to anything with the Twilight series. The woman who previewed the book said it seemed like she was trying to write something completely different from the vampire/teenage/romance genre's and failed. The synopsis didn't make me want to read the book, I would say just pass or rent it if you can from a local/public library. Or don't waste your time at all.

agh the teaser trailer for Twilight is out guys! its on tv.myspace.com and its also on twilightthemovie.com!

I know someone who read the Host. She said it was def. not Twilight but it was not a dull fest. I think I will read it but I am in no hurry. I will read it when I read it.

Ah, I saw the teaser trailer and am seriously disappointed with RPattz' acting. Oh dear.

Kirsten Stewart looks like she plays the part well, though.

HURRY UP AND RELEASE A FULL TRAILER DAMMIT.

I always intended to read these books but never wanted to spend the money to buy all three books at once (which would be necessary because I can't let myself hang when I know there's more)  Then last Saturday came and I recieved them as a gift. I started twilight on Sunday and I'm currently a few chapters into Eclipse. Can't wait until next weekend  :D  or December :D  I absolutely LOVE these books

Post by: SadAsBlue on July 28, 2008, 07:48:23 pm
Yes Kristen Steward does seem to have a bit of the "I'm so beyond this" attitude in interviews but in her favor she seems to play Bella well enough.

  I know this is weird but thanks so much for confirming that it was her in the movie! I saw the movie a while ago, and later I saw the Twilight trailer, and I recognized her but I couldn't remember where! I had a feeling it was her..but I couldn't figure it out. Thanks for putting me out of my misery.
 Anyway, I love the books (can't wait for Breaking Dawn) but I have a question... Are vampires supposed to have reflections? Because in one trailer I saw, (PS the following might be a spoiler to anyone who hasn't finished reading twilight) !!!  When James and Edward are fighting, in the mirror they both have reflections...and I swear in one book Bella said something about Edward not having a reflection..... Am I insane?
Title: Twilight Series
Post by: SadAsBlue on July 30, 2008, 05:10:02 pm
I don't remember Bella saying he didn't have a reflection. I remeber her wondering if he would show up in a photo, which he did.

are they making movies for all four books, like harry potter, or just combining the story (ugh, i hope not)? if so, then even if you can't get a song onto twilight you have three more you can try and make :)

Post by: itsthefiveofus on August 15, 2008, 08:16:16 am
they are not combining the story and it turns out that Harry Potter is going to be pushed to July of 2009 so Twilight has no compitition!

Well, it's not like you can contact anyone directly involved with the film - that's pretty much impossible.  But maybe I could still find a way to get my music in one of the movies...it just sucks 'cause the theme of "Edward" only really fits with the first book.  I know 'cause I'm finally reading it!

I am re reading Twilight. Breaking Dawn was just pretty much hit and run for me. I only liked Book one and Book two of Bella and Jacob. After that (like 50-60% of the remaining book) I could not stand. But I am re reading the series and can't wait for the movie!

I was at the Hotel Cafe last night (where Meiko got her start) to see Schuyler Fisk and I saw Nikki Reed (Rosalie) and Robert Pattinson (Edward) coming out. Robert Pattinson had CRAZY wild hair, sort of a beard going on, and he seemed kind of buzzed or just wild. Nikki Reed was quiet with some of her friends just talking outside. I didn't go up to them or bug them, I'm sure they don't like that. Just thought I'd let ya know!

Well I've never done that...growing up my family always told me that they were just like everyone else. They were probably trying to have a good time, sure they love their fans, but I'm sure they just want to get away from cameras, screaming teens, and people who just want to be in the spotlight with them. I wonder if they are really dating? I've heard rumors that Nikki Reed and Robert Pattinson were going out. Oh the gossip... :roll:

While my song "Edward" was NOT inspired at all by the Twilight series (I simply had a crush on a boy at school), the fact that people think it's about Edward Cullen has only helped get my name out there a little bit more. So I figured I would fuel the fire and make this little promotional video, which uses stills from the upcoming "Twilight" movie, with my song in the background. Please repost this wherever you can! Thanks.

I really liked the book until the whole world liked it. When popular culture took over I kind of just left the whole "Twilight" scene. I read the book in 8th grade and loved it, but when I tried reading again (I am now in the 11th grade) it just seemed really cheesy. Bella is always talking about how amazing Edward is and it just gets annoying.

I've read a TON of Paranormal Romance novels and Stephenie Meyer is lame. Her books remind me of Amanda Ashley and Christine Feehan (much better writers). Strong Morman message in her books that I do not like, corny teenage drivel. I used to really like Kristen Stewart but lately the way she's been running her mouth with comments such as "being a celebrity is like being raped" what...whoa...really?! No. Someone needs to club her on the head because being raped is in no way like making millions of dollars with fans chasing after you because they love your work in film or music. She just seems so ungrateful, if she doesn't like it, she should take her money (that she has enough of) and go live in the woods. Robert Pattinsons acting is hysterical, the way he can't keep a straight or serious face, as if he's always trying to hold back a laugh (since the screenplay is awful). They are all laughing all the way to the bank. This saga/series is a joke and I'm glad I'm not part of this twilight craze.

I've always loved Kristen, pre-Twilight. I think the franchise and its fame ruined her - I liked her better before she was a huge star. The Twilight movies are a guilty pleasure of mine, though, I must admit. Jackson Rathbone makes them worthwhile.
