Twilight Tuesday

Book stuff-
I heard a theory about the cover of Breaking Dawn that I really liked the other day so I thought I'd share it with you all to see what you think.
When I first saw the cover I thought for sure that the chess pieces represented two different characters- Bella and Jane or Bella and Tanya. I don't know a lot about chess so I didn't know that if a pawn reaches the other side of the board without being killed that it then can become a different piece. So.... if Bella was the red pawn and made it to the other side (through whatever battles she encounters) then she can become the white queen. It could be that the battles she faces as the pawn are while she is still human or the red could be symbolic of her newborn stage. Hmmmmm..... there are so many possibilities!!!! How much longer?!?!?! (check the bottom of my blog for an exact countdown)

If you want a laugh you must check out Kaleb at
Twilight Guy. He offers a male perspective on reading the Twilight series. He's hysterical!!!

Movie stuff-
It's always a concern when a book you love is made into a movie. So many times the movie is so different from the book that it's incredibly disappointing. When I go to see a movie that has been adapted from a book I've read I try really hard to separate them from each other. I have to remind myself that this is a movie based on a book, not the movie version of the book. The folks at MTV addressed this issue in today's edition of Twilight Tuesday-

There is an article about the Cullen Crest on the MTV Movie blog. The Cullen Crest is not in the book but it's something they have worked into the movie. I actually think it's kind of cool. Just think of the merchandising possibilites with the Cullen Crest- oh my!!!
The Cullen Crest has been visible in several clips that we've seen up to this point. Of course the fandom has tried to get a good shot of it but this is the first up close and personal shot of it. The funny thing is that just the other night a few of my friends and I spent way more time than I'm willing to admit trying to pause the clips on just the right spot to get a good view of it. If only we had known that we would get it today we could have wasted that time in other ways.

Call me sometime. I have a theory about how this is going to wrap up that I'd like to run by you.

I didn't know you liked Twilight too! I just bought some beautiful book marks from my friend that were inspired by Twilight. I love them! Here is her website: www.chaptercharms.homestead.com We should get together and go see the movie when it comes out! Take care!
