My Choices for the Twilight Cast

My Choice for Actors... Just an opinion!!!! ;0)

Ok so my last post got me thinking, if the casting was up to me who would I cast?

Here is my list so far.... Don't be too harsh!!

Bella: I think I would keep Kristen Stewart, she looks the Part
Edward: Chase Crawford of Gossip Girl Fame.... See last post!
Carlisle: Henry Cavill (Gorgeous on Tudors!!!) and he really is English!!
Esme: Katherine Hiegel, Stephenie's description kinda inspired this!
Emmett: Taylor Kitsch
Rosalie: Megan Fox
Jasper: Brian Geraghty
Alice: Danielle Harris
Jacob Steve Strait...

Twilight Movie

Ok so being completely honest I am torn between excitement and optimism about the Twilight movie coming out in December.... I like the idea of visually seeing the Cullen's and Bella come to life but I don't know if I exactly agree with Robert Pattinson as Edward. He doesn't honestly look anything like the description Stephenie Meyer so delicately describes. So I decided to go on a hunt and see if I could find anyone who fit my mental image of the gorgeous Vampire and I have to admit I found this picture completely by accident... I also like Gossip Girl!!!
Chase Crawford would be the closest representation to how I saw Edward, not identical but close as I can get... I don't there could be living person who represents Edward the way I see him. I added the picture so you can understand what I mean.
I guess I'm just worried about the movie taking away from Stephenie's beautiful words and the sincerity of the story, I don't want it to become another throw away movie, a perfect example is The Covenant, don't get me wrong I like the movie but I am always left feeling cheated after watching because they had taken an awesome idea and threw it together and it felt rushed and it didn't quite flow as easily as it could have.
I also have to comment on the promotional pictures of the Cullen family t hat have been released for the movie, what is with the hair? Please someone tell me that these were just thrown together for publicity sake... The hair is horrible and I find it very distracting!! I really am not trying to put the movie down because I am excited about Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan and I hope the visual representation can really get across the emotions that are so dominant in the books, I think I can definitely say I think Kristen Stewart will do a good job.

Ok, onto another point.... does anyone else feel like they will go completely insane before Breaking Dawn is released??? I think I can honestly say that I am impatiently waiting, and I am far from being an impatient person, I think this is the publishers excuse to torture readers because... I feel tortured!!! LOL

Eclipse Playlist

New Moon Playlist

Twilight Music

OK so even though I feel completely lame I was curious as to the songs Stephenie Meyer listened to as she wrote so I went to a play list website and created the play lists she used for each book I have added them separately so if you wanna listen just hit play. Enjoy ;0)

New Moon

Evanescence - "My Immortal" (It just seems to fit when Edward leaves Bella!

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase


I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along


Twilight Saga

Ok so now I can't possibly wait till August for Breaking Dawn to be released, it's going to be torturous!!! I know that every fan of Stephenie Meyer's is feeling the same way. I know because I read the forums and the blogs and anything I can possibly get my hands on.
It's just the whole Bella and Edward scenario, I think that everyone wishes that they could find a love as pure and although at first I was disappointed about the interaction between Bella and Jacob on the mountain I think I understand why it happened and what the thought process behind it was.
It's kind of a testament to Bella, she loves Jacob but she loves Edward more and although for a fleeting moment your heart stops, you realize that whatever happens between these two, they will never have the connection as Bella and Edward have. I think this is certainly the moment this happens for her as Stephenie says, Bella fell in love with Jacob in New Moon, she just couldn't see it through her misery and the whole Edward left made her feel incomplete.
Please if you feel in any way that I am wrong comment I won't take offense, it's just the way I see it and I'm open to other opinions.
So, getting that out the way, I'm interested in what path Stephenie is going to take and I'm wondering if Jacob will imprint???? Just a thought... let me know what you think!!

New Moon

I just finished New Moon and I am waiting for eclipse to be delivered, I have to admit I am addicted to this series of books, I am a lot older than a young adult.
This book really got some emotions going, I think I cried throughout the entire thing, Stephenie's writing is amazing, when Bella feels pain... so do you! I really enjoyed every part of it and to be quite honest, will have to read them all again. (I have read each of the HP series at least 5 times... sad I know).
Stephenie has made it so easy to really become involved in Bella's life and like I said about Twilight, sometimes you feel you could be next to her. This series helps me with my escapism, yes it sounds strange but like everyone, occasionally you need to abscond from your life, even if for just a brief second. I have found solace in this book, I enjoy the words and the sentiments and Bella is always getting into trouble, you find yourself laughing at her sarcasm or her complete lack of balance.
The only thing I find distressing is that they are too short lol! I seem to coast through them in hours and this is the main reason I read books 3-5 times ;0P.
I honestly don't think I will make to August to wait for the next book, it will be excruciating, but I'm sure worth every second.
I'm babbling...

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

I found this completely by accident, I was buying a Bridal Shower present for my sister and as always I found myself in the book section (I'm good at that, even though I should be nowhere near it!!) I picked up Judy Blume's Forever... I remember reading this when I was about 13 and I fell in love with it, so I decided to get it and take a trip down memory lane.
Then I noticed a cover which caught my attention... The one you see here so I turned it over to see if there was a description on the back...
***"About three things I was absolutely positive.
First, Edward was a vampire
Second, there was a part of him-and I didn't know how dominant that part might be-that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him."***
I was captivated so I decided to pick it up, and it didn't disappoint! It's definitely a little slow in the beginning, but it doesn't stay that way for long. I think this is the only book I have ever found that I had been holding my breath on, I would laugh at myself as I would reach the end of a chapter and begin to breath again, I was mesmerized and Stephanie's first person account is so descriptive that you feel you are going through the same thing's as Bella and you just can't seem to put the book down!
If you love to read, and you have a romantic notion about Vampires (As I always have, I find them captivating) you will adore this book completely. I was so glad I picked it up on a whim because it made it all the better.
Then, you realize there is a movie coming out and you hope that it does the book some justice. I know that it's hard to adapt books into movies verbatim but you hope they don't slaughter the spellbinding words that stimulate the imagination perfectly. As always I am glad I found the book before the movie came out, I hate seeing movies first if they are adapted from books (Prime example is: The Other Boleyn Girl, I saw that they were making a movie from a book and grabbed the book first!!! Awesome by the way!!), Haven't seen the movie yet but I am looking froward to it!
I can't give TWILIGHT high enough praise, as I can't find the words that describe it well enough, I just know that I would recommend this book to anyone who will listen!
Thank you Stephanie Meyer for writing a compelling love story that captures the imagination and stimulates the senses.
