The Twilight saga


Having read Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse (the last one in 14 hours flat) my dilemma now is whether to buy Breaking Dawn in hardback or wait impatiently until it comes out in paperback. I have a personal rule of not buying hardbacks, and I've only broken it once, when the 7th Harry Potter book came out.

Will this be the second time? I think it might...

I really enjoyed Twilight, but wasn't that crazy about New Moon. The best thing in it was Jacob. I think I'm in the minority group of Jacob fans!

Haha not too keen on Jacob myself, he's sweet, but too young! I liked New Moon because of Bella, but I agree that Twilight was better.

Have you read Midnight Sun (Twilight told from Edward's perspective)? I loved it, but of course there's hardly any Jacob in it.

Re. Hardback - don't do it... credit crunch!! also, gives you something to look forward to. Patience is a virtue ;)

Patience isn't one of my virtues, I'm all for instant gratification haha :-)

Actually, I've checked and it's only £5.98 on Amazon, so I'm really tempted, credit crunch or not!

Ok- just over a Fiver sounds like a bargain so go for it ;)

I have not read any of them... or seen the movie... I hear they are FAB!
BTW... Le Train Bleu does exist in the Gare de Lyon train station... you can read more about it here:

ENJOY your day!

A very good personal rule. Do resist that temptation! Paperback it will be.

Tinsie said...

The die is cast - I've placed my order on Amazon. I just couldn't wait :-)

After all, rules are made to be broken. Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Hehe.

@ Fifi: I've travelled from Gare de Lyon several times and never knew! I'll pay better attention next time.

Good for you! I read them all, too, and Breaking Dawn was my favorite. It is very different from the other books. I hope you enjoy it and post your review!

Tinsie said...

I'm sure I will :-)

my kids loved these books! I bought them for my oldest for christmas! They came in a set of hardbacks! Hardbacks are nice because they stay together better, lol!

I finally seen the movie last week! really good indeed!

It's the movie that got me interested in the books in the first place. If you liked it, you really ought to read the books - they're even better :-)
