The love of books and will I like the Twilight book?

Whispers of Bella's and Edward's love fill the air. Team Edward or Team Jacob does not matter to me. I watched the first movie before I had read the book and I am sure like so many other movies the book is probably better. Like My Sister's Keeper; book pretty good, movie all right. This time I actually read the book before the movie, usually it is the other way around. I was to put it mildly a bit disappointed in the movie's portrayal of the book.

I don't typically get so consumed by fictional books and their corresponding movie. But, I do love books and adore movies. I collect books and they are piled in my room just waiting to be perused. I especially look for the books that have been turned into movies. I attend a book club now and then as well. I search high and low at Goodwill and thrift stores for books that look like they are a good read. Yes, in this case I do judge a book by its cover.

Anyway back to Twilight. After countless fans raving over the book. I mulled over that maybe I would give it a chance. A while later I found New Moon at Goodwill for .59 cents. I could not believe it so I broke down and bought the first one to start with. I just picked up the first one today. I have not started reading it yet but I will start soon. All my books are begging to be read. Maybe I will write a little later on my opinion of it. I admit I was a V.C. Andrews fan back in the day, which tells me this is similar except it involves falling for vampires and werewolves instead of relatives and or married unavailable gentlemen. So, I am going to cozy up and start reading. Have a great night everyone and good reading.


  1. Hey Amber,
    Stopping by from SITS...
    One book/movie that are remarkably close is Silence of the Lambs. Don't know if you like that kind of movie, but I was impressed with the similarities. I HATE it when the book and movie are SO different.
    Happy Saturday Sharefest!

  2. Thank you me too, Like My Sister's Keeper the ending is very different from the book and some other things are different.

  3. I enjoyed the twilight books but haven't seen the films yet! Right now I am engrossed by the Millennium Trilogy!

  4. I dont like the Twilight series...but I hope you enjoyed them!

    Be blessed!

  5. Yeah I started reading the first book and it is all right. I don't really understand why people are into them.
