Twilight The Movie

Well my dears I got to see Twilight last night...YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! Would I see it again..yes, would I recommend it, yes. Did I love it??? NO! ? Why? well it seemed to move so fast. The romantic aspect of the story is my favorite part. The slow building love story that leaves ya breathless is amazing and the movie lacks that. That being does have some amazing CGI effects and when Edward "Dazzles"....OME!!!

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner

Hellllllllo....I am back from the Twilight Premiere in LA and here are my pictures...I wished I had better pictures, but I was toggling between getting autographs and taking pictures and that was no easy task.

The group Paramour they preform on the Twilight soundrack with the song "Decode"

This is Ashley Green aka Alice Cullen. She was simply gorgeous

No introduction needed,lol. Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen
I dont know who this gorgeous man is....but he was sooo worth the shot

Cam Gigandet aka "James" He was in the zone signing autographs

Peter Facinelli aka Dr. Carlisle Cullen and his wife Jenny Garth

Richelle Lafevre aka "Victoria" she had fierce hair, but did not give any autographs in our area :(

Elizabeth Reaser aka Esme Cullen
Nikki Reed aka Rosalie Hale. She was very pretty also and had a great dress

Jackson Rathbone aka Jasper Hale

Taylor Lautner aka Jacob Black. What a cutie..and a pure ham for the camera's

Stephenie Meyer signing her heart away....she was very pretty and gracious

Katherine Hardwick...she was friggin awesome. She came by at around midnight to visit with the fans that had camped out for the movie premiere. She took pictures and signed autographs. Now that makes her number 1 in my book. I asked for a hug and told her thank you for bring my favorite book to life. I wished her much success and will do my best to make sure that the others get made....meaning that lots of ticket sales have to happen

Kristen Steward...aka Bella Swan. She signed my poster and caused a little rip in it..and she was a bit upset over that and I told her not to worry. It was alllllll cool.
The man of the hour Robert Pattinson...Edward Cullen. A bit frazzled...poor baby

some more pictures of Taylor...He is really cute, but wayyyyyyyyyyy too young for moi

Kellan Lutz aka Emmett Cullen a total hottie and I am now his forever fan. He was so very sweet and when I asked him for a "little" hug...he said...what about a "BIG" one and went for it. OMG!!! I am still swooning.

Michael Welch aka Mike Newton

Solomon Trimble aka Sam

Sarah made the best sign

Well, this day is finally here. No...not the actual movie release, but the movie premiere that I will witness. I and a group of good peeps are going down to L.A. to attend(watch from a safe distance) the red carpet event going down tomorrow night. Yeah...I am that obsessed, but that fact has already been established. The picture that you see is the badge that I created for the event. I hope to come back with many stories and loads of pictures. Keep your fingers crossed for me and wish me will for this is unknown territory that I enter.

I leave tonight at 9pm...and hope the Volturi stay away and let us all have fun.

This is a shout out to my friend Zoey....I wish you were here, for I know you would totally enjoy it and be the best partner in crime evah.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

In the Forest of Hands and Teeth, you never stray too near the fence.

Mary cannot remember a time she did not live with the presence of the Unconsecrated: dead bodies propelled by a savage appetite for human flesh that push against the fence surrounding her village day and night. She learns to tune out the endless moans and cries, and when the darkness comes you pray for a dreamless sleep, because no nightmare compares to what constantly rattles and claws at your all-too vulnerable borders between her village and the forest.Her people live in the shadow of the Cathedral and the Sisterhood, obeying the Sisters who enforce God’s laws and praying that their precious fence holds. Despite the obvious dangers, Mary dreams of the world that must exist outside the Forest of Hands and Teeth, and of the ocean that her mother told her about but that those around her insist is just a myth. But when Mary’s family is destroyed, she must make a choice between the Sisterhood and marriage with a man she does not love. All the while, Mary wants to know what lies beyond the perimeter of her tiny village. Is there an ocean out there? And how can it be reached when the Unconsecrated are a constant and relentless threat in the forest? Even when surrounded by so much death, Mary wants to live. At times the longing in her chest for freedom seems as desperate as the ragged need of the Unconsecrated.

Then a stranger comes to the village, from the fenced-in path that the Sisterhood has forbidden anyone to explore. Her mysterious presence sets in motion a chain of events that catapult Mary far beyond the borders of her tiny village into an uncertain future fraught with fear and death. It is fascinating that this novel deals with zombies and yet that word is never mentioned. The strength of Carrie Ryan’s walking dead debut is the menacing mood it strikes–I could hear those cold, clammy fingers grappling with the fence and the moans of the unconsecrated by novel's end. SHUDDER!!!

I was left with more questions than answers by the time I turned the last page, and frustrated by the clues Mary found of modern life gone wrong and the potential corrupt nature of the Sisterhood that were dropped and not picked up again. Yet, the story is so very engrossing that you get past it. Also Mary’s constant back-and-forth can make things drag a bit: one minute she wants to risk everything to get to the ocean, then she does an about-face and goes into a downward spiral of self-doubt and self-defeat…then she’s back to being all bold and trying to get to the ocean again…then back. Even though this personality flaw of Mary’s gets annoying, I still think it’s a fairly realistic reaction to what is happening around her.

I hope there is a sequel, for I cannot wait to read more about Mary and her world. I normally do not fancy ANYTHING that has zombies in it (ask anyone that knows me), but this story is well done, a page turning powerhouse. If your interested in something with a dark edge that is different than vampires and werewolves then take a lurch on the wild side with Ryan’s disturb-arific zombies as soon as they start staggering into the nearest library or bookstore, which unfortunately will not be until April 2009.

Just to whet your appetite a bit more. Here is a video that was created by Student filmmaker, Jessica Pilkes for IN THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH and she was honored at the teen book video awards for her effort.
