Movie Monday—5

And thus we enter another Movie Monday that nobody really pays attention to anyway. *Sigh* But I like it, so I'm okay with that. Anyways, I just recently tried to finish Twilight and I thought that I would like it, at least, a little more than I just did. I think I'm still making a review on it, though, and maybe I'm going to try to finish it. But, no promises.

Now that that's out of the way, I have the professional yuck stuff that I have to get through. Movie Monday is a weekly meme hosted by me, Taylor, at A Booky Wonderland. It highlights the last book you've read and comparing it to the movie adaptation of that book or what you would expect if it were to be made into a book.

So, Twilight... I didn't exactly get it at first, when I first read it on fourth grade. I got to the second chapter and deemed it impossible to read, returning it to the library and never bothering to look at it again. I think, as a reader, that it's so much better to read all the successful books out there instead of just whatever's "being made into the next blockbuster."

Wow, I just left this blog post for like an hour to Facebook and Twitter and all that... I'm a horrible blogger... :( Back to Twilight! I found the entire plot of the first sixty-eight percent (yes, I actually got that far, or short, depending on how you look at it) slow and I didn't think Bella was a really weak heroine, but I thought she was definitely obsessed with Edward. As for the movie, I found it a lot easier to get through because you couldn't hear Bella's thoughts on Edward.

What about you? What did you think about Twilight, and if you haven't read it, do you want to read it?

    This is cool meme, I'll definitely participate.

    I read Twilight a couple of years ago. I liked the book a lot, and then all this craze started and then the movie came out and I rented it... I hated the movie. I hate the craze, but I'm participating in a Twilight Challenge this year to re read the series and readjust my opinion and see where I stand now.
    With the craze and obsession, I hate the book. I really enjoyed it when I found it in a small bookstore and knew nothing about what it would become. =)


I love comments, and will read every last one (even if there are like a hundred, which I doubt) so feel free to comment!
