Twilight Catch-Up

As the fourth and final book in the Twilight series is coming out on Saturday, I am going to do some Twilight catch-up. I love these books and starting tomorrow (or maybe Wednesday), I am reading all three books again before book four is released. I got a call today from a reporter from The Star Tribune today asking to interview me about the "Twilight Phenomenon" (thank you Kristen). I spent about a half hour at least on the phone with her trying to explain why as a 35 year old mother of three, I devoured this young adult vampire fiction and yes, became a bit obsessed with all things Twilight. I just think it is a wonderful story that just completely captures that magic and tension of first love - ok, that and the fact that Edward is seriously drool worthy.

So, did everyone see the ET weekly cover?! Let's all say it together - ewwwww and bleck! I don't think I have ever seen a worse cover! They made beautiful Edward look like an ugly, creepy, dead vampire that just crawled out of his grave (note the dirt under his nails) with a strangely out of place belt buckle, and plain Bella looks nothing like the Bella in the books. Shame on you Entertainment Weekly!

This shot inside the magazine is much better.

There is also another photo inside of the Host Tour at the MOA in which you can see my friends Kelly and Julie and NOT me. I was standing right next to the two of them and yet I missed my shot at fame. Oh well, I'm truly not bitter.

This is the Edward we want to see Entertainment Weekly. I had my doubts when Robert Pattinson was cast because he truly has some geeky looking photos on-line, but I am a believer now. Don't get me started on the casting of Rosalie.

On Friday night, we are having a Breaking Dawn release party and are headed to the movies, dinner and then Barnes and Noble at midnight! Here are the invites - hope to see you there!


  1. How fun!! I've never read them, but can I come?!

  2. I want to come! I will fly in on friday... j/k. But I will surely be missing out. I miss you guys! I totally agree with you on the ET magazine. That's awful and not the way I picture either of them. I wonder if Stephanie could approve the pic and if so, why she did. Crazy! I'm excited for the book. Can't wait!

  3. I am totally jealous of your party, I really want to come! Thanks for the reminder of the release. I better pick up the first three again before Friday, it's been a while. Congrats on your interview. Make sure you post a link to the article once it is published.

  4. Yay for Friday! Did I tell you how much I love the invites?

  5. Sounds like fun. What movie are you guys going to see?

  6. I saw your name in an article in Star Tribune! Have fun!
