A Bite Of Twilight

There is a very BIG buzz about the movie, Twilight, which is due in theaters in roughly a few hours. It is based on the book series by Stephenie Meyer who apparently was inspired to write after a vivid dream. Twilight is about the young but forbidden romance between Bella and Edward. Yes, forbidden because Edward is a vampire. This is the extent of my knowledge.

I don't know if I can get myself to start reading the saga. Vampires really freak me out. In college, Anne Rice was a favorite author among my classmates. I couldn't even pick up a copy of Interview With A Vampire and buy one! But I did watch the movie and fell asleep through most of it.

Actually a lot of things freak me out. The Sixth Sense didn't make me sleep for a whole week. After watching it I had to call my parents (they were out of town) at 2 am. My dad had a paperback of The Shining and I could even look at it because of the yellow eyes on the cover! After reading The Red Dragon, I walked flushed to the wall to make sure no one was behind me when I had to get out of bed in the middle of the night.

Or maybe I just have an overactive imagination.

But with all the hype with the Twilight movie showing and all maybe I can muster enough courage to watch it. Or I just may sink my teeth into reading the book. Who knows?

I've seen lots of Posts and read a few about these books and it seems that this is a monomania among some. Kaya lang ayokong takutin ang sarili ko eh :-)

By the way this is for you :

Hi. I stumbled upon your blog through the pinoyhomeschool egroup. I've enjoyed my visit and will definitely be back. :)

Re Twilight, I've been gaga over it for a couple of weeks now. No need to be scared. It's not your typical vampire story or movie. Ditto what MM said. If you have an inner 13-year-old fangirl in you, you'll love it. :)

Really? Hmmm, my interest is piqued. Cge will get an e-book to start. Don't want to ruin the expectation by wathing the movie. Thanks for all the feedback!
