I don't want to look in the other post...the Team Edward or Team Jacob one. Forgive me for that, but I have not started "Breaking Dawn" yet. So I don't want to ruin it.

I'm almost done with "Eclipse", and ugh!!! I cannot believe that Bella is "in love" with Jacob, too. In some way, that's spoiling the whole "one true love" angle for me in this series. It's tainted that strong connection she feels towards Edward. Why couldn't they just keep it that she kissed him back because of the simple human experience? The feel of warm lips vs. Edward's cold and hard-as-stone ones?

Maybe it's because I haven't finished the series yet that this upsets me so. But I seriously think I liked Bella BEFORE she was in love with two men.

The movie's coming out next month. What's your feeling on that? Going to see it? Or not? Even though I've rarely found a movie that I prefer over the book, I just have to see the movie. DH already knows we have a "date" for opening weekend.

LOL. Haven't you ever had two people that you've liked equally well? I think Bella isn't as much IN LOVE with Jacob -- at least not the way she is with Edward -- but more trying to figure out what she REALLY wants with life. Conflicting emotions, conflicting futures. She saw the possibility of children w/ Jacob, and that is appealing. I'd say keep on reading, and maybe it'll work it out in the end for you. :)

And I am ABSOLUTELY going to be seeing the movie. I think it'd be fun to get a group of ladies together to see it... I probably won't go to the midnight release, but I'm definitely going to be one of the people IN the theater watching it. :) I can't wait!! The trailers look amazing. If you haven't seen any of the trailers, I think you can link to them off of Stephenie Meyer's website: www.StephenieMeyer.com -- they are fabulous! I love Stephenie Meyer's website.

Sure, you two made it worse! It's bad enough that DH is hiding the books from me when he gets home. I'm literally GLUED to them. I did start Breaking Dawn this morning, so hopefully I won't feel so clueless by tomorrow.

Joann, I'm hoping you're right. That it's less than she's "in love" with Jacob, and more that it's just the process of making sure she's made the right decision.

My gosh, I can't believe it's taken me this long to "find" this series. I'm always reading. But since I rely on my mom for the constant book supply, it's rare that she and I find our ways outside of the "comfort zone". I am so glad that I had that Overstock gift card lying around the same week these Twilight posts on SG caught me eye. It's been ages since I've really really gotten into a book like this again. Thankfully, there's 4 of 'em! LOL!

Back to reading...

LOL!! Come up for air every once in a while and let us know how you like Breaking dawn. :) I personally REALLY liked it - although I know there are plenty of people who didn't. Oh well. Personal taste. :) I'm glad you're enjoying the series -- I read the first three books in... umm... 3 days.

I read them pretty quickly too. :D And to think they had been on my bookshelf for a while. Comes from having teenage daughters. My husband knows better than to hide a book from me. ;)

I'm on page 442, right where Bella is getting ready to meet Renesemee (what on earth kind of name is that, anyway??) after her first hunt.

This is me - coming up for air. Can I take a guess? Did Jacob imprint on Renesmee???

You're such a tease, Dee! I put the book down - rather took it upstairs again. I've read almost all morning, since I finished that project you asked me about. I've got to stop for awhile. At least leave the last 1/3 of the book for tomorrow. My anniversary is today, so I'm tempted to go to the store and surprise DH with something good for dinner. I've been ignoring him for the last week, but that's not exactly a good idea on our anniversary. :rofl:
