Ok, so I wasn't so hot in the posting department for November. I'm about four reviews behind, so I should be getting those up here in the next few days. DH is out of town for deer hunting season, so I'm at home by myself (thank goodness I have those two vicious attack dogs to keep me safe - they'll wag their tails to ward off the bad guys ;) ) I didn't read any of my November books. I ended up getting sucked into the library and not bothering with the books I had picked out. Sad and pathetic.
On a much happier note, I went and saw Twilight yesterday. I will be returning to the theater this weekend to see it again. I thought it was *that* good. I sat there and quietly drooled over Edward, totally enthralled with his relationship with Bella. I seriously considered leaving DH and going to hunt down Rob Pattison and begging him to marry me. That idea is still under heavy thought...lol. The whole movie, in and of itself, was truly amazing to me. I got out of the theater, and couldn't stop talking about it. Then I got home and couldn't stop thinking about it. I woke up several times in the middle of the night, thinking of Edward. I had the whole sweaty palms, shortness of breath, couldn't speak thing going on. It was as bad as, if not worse, then when I read the book.
When I had seen the previews for the movies, I didn't know how I felt about Rob Pattison. Was he truly worthy to play someone as stunningly beautiful as Edward? I had very mixed feelings about him as an actor. However, I tried to keep an open mind about the whole thing. I didn't want to guide a book by the cover, per say. So as the opening credits began to roll, I settled into my seat with my popcorn and giant sized Dr. Pepper fearing disappoint but hoping to me amazed. As the first couple of scenes featuring Edward played across the screen, my fears began to melt. And then, it happened. Bella was going to be attacked by those nasty strange men, when Edward's silver Volvo comes flying onto the screen. Jumping out of the car he immediately tells Bella to get in the car and scares away the bad guys. Angels sang, my heart jumped, I was swooning. And that my friends, is when the obsession started.
So my advice --- GO SEE THE MOVIE. Take your mom, take your friends, take a drool bib --- JUST GO!!
