I know I know everyone’s been posting this! I am so dang giddy to see this movie. I have to confess I watched Twilight BEFORE I read the book. I actually had no intention to read the books at all. It took watching it about 3 times before I finally gave in wanting to see what all the hoopla was about. I read the first book and absolutely HATED Edward. I told myself to keep reading, give the characters a chance and so I did. New Moon was a STRUGGLE to get through. I actually threw the book at the wall a couple of times. I tried throwing it away. It was a horrendously long self indulgent pity party ranging hormone teen temper tantrum. It irritated me that Bella let her life become so swept up with some “douche-bag” of a guy. I finally finished it with a little from my friends and dove into Eclipse. That’s when it started getting better, but I still hated Mr. Douchey-Pants. I am not sure if it was because I saw the movie first so Robert Petterson and his HORRIBLY “over blow dried need clearance from the FAA” hair style or if it was the character’s personality that made me just want to kick him to kingdom come. It was during my lunch break sitting outside with some girls in the midst of listening to them swoon over Edward that it clicked in my head.
