new moon...(slight spoiling)

I finished reading New Moon last night. Well actually 2:00 a.m. this morning. I picked the book up Sunday afternoon and couldn't put it down, not for long. I decided to finish it and I've started on Eclipse as of this morning. (I'm on chapter 2.)

Once Alice returned to Forks that was it ~ I knew Edward would appear soon. The ONLY thing that disappointed me about this book is the lack of "Edward-ness". I always kept reading ahead (I hate when I do this) to see if he'd pop his lovely self into the story, but to no avail. I wasn't happy that he did not physically appear until the last part of the book. However, I was beside myself when he returned and I kept waiting for that long-waited kiss they needed to have. I just kept wishing that this vampire-human thing would get out of the way so they could "get on with it." I was so satisfied when he promised that "he" would indeed bite her. I hope he keeps this promise. That made me happy and now I am fulfilled. Ahhhh!!!! Exhale!!!!!

I don't know what is going to happen with this love triangle thing, but I hope Bella makes up her mind. Is she stupid??? Go with Edward - you can own a dog any day!

I almost finished that book last night, but had to put it down so that I wouldn't be too much of a zombie today at work. I can't believe how much I'm loving this series!!

Your comment about the dog was too funny, Julie. I hate to say this though, my dogs are much cuter than this Edward. I'm oviously in the minority, but I don't get the attraction. I know I have to break down, rent the movie and see what all the hype is about.

Okay, I need to speak with Tanya and tell her to RENT THE MOVIE!!! I am going to have to come to your blog not just for the stitching but for all those cool Edward/Twilight things you have on it! Phew. I'm fanning myself here. My daughter took our Twilight DVD down to college with her for the week and I can't wait to get it back and watch it again. PHEW.

I felt the same about New Moon. I can't WAIT for the movie but I'm afraid that it'll be too little Edward. The books are great, though, aren't they? I've read them all but think I might get them in audiobook.
