Last Year I began reading a 'little' book I found on Amazon called Twilight, I quickly came to realise just how popular this book was becoming! I have just finished New Moon the second in the saga and must say I have enjoyed them. Just before Christmas the movie came out and I debated whether to go see it, thinking it could ruin the images I had created in my head of the characters.......if anyone has also read the book you will understand this even more regarding Edward! ha,ha How could a movie do justice to the book?

Well I had my doubts, but I wanted to enjoy the whole phenomena that is Twilight, I watched a few Trailers on you tube and the Movie looked quite good!

I went to see it and was pleasantly surprised, although slightly different to the images I had created, it still did the story justice and all the actors suited the mood of the Movie, edgy and moody. And I guess in keeping with the style of the film Robbert Pattison who plays Edward was good too! I thought I recognised the actor from Harry Potter, and I was right he played Cedric Diggory In Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire!

Bella and Edward

So I am now a fan of the movie..... and look forward to seeing New Moon on screen

The Cullens.

Here is the trailer to the movie....

Have you see the film? read the books let me know what you think....

See you again soon

My daughter has read all the books,,,she was addicted!! She caught some of the movie online but said she can wait for it to come out on DVD.

My Hubby said that some of the girls that ride into Seattle on the train with him have been buzzing about it too!

Strangely, I do not watch movies or even have a television -- but I have heard quite a bit about these books, I think I'm going to get the first one and read it...

I haven't read the books yet, but I know I won't watch the film until I do! I sometimes hate seeing films after I have read books I have completely fallen in love with ~ the Harry Potter films for example but I did see them and have them on DVD although I don't think they do the books justice at all!
Glad you enjoyed the film, my neice went to see in on Christmas Eve and loved it.
And just to let you know I'm having a giveaway if you want to pop over and take a peek!
Have a lovely weekend

I loved both the book and movie. I'm half way into the second book....but I'm reading a mystery too and it has really caught my interest. Lisa and some of her friends started a little reading group and read all the books....they really enjoyed them.
Love the new banner...Hugs, Linda

So many people are wild about this book...even a friend of mine who only reads the classics! I guess I must read it, and soon!!

Oh Priscilla, hand cream is another of those things I need to start using. I do have the Liz hand repair too.

I love the muslin cloth too... def think that has a lot of to do with helping the cleanse and polish.

Now I'm off to watch QVC! LOL! (how disappointing they've stopped doing Molton Brown!!)
