I liked Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I really did–though I had some reservations, especially with the way Bella didn’t seem to care about her safety or herself at all. (That really bugged me–I like strong girl characters.) When I tried to get into the second book in the series, I couldn’t get into the writing at all. I still have fond memories of the first book, though.
So it was a shock to see Entertainment Weekly’s cover of the upcoming Twilight movie (Dec 12, 2008). Oh my god. I did not envision Edward like that at all. He looks gruesome. He looks, let’s face it, dead. How is that appealing on any level?
It actually made me feel a little sick. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Any way, let me tell you that that is one movie I won’t be going to see, as much as I love movies based on children’s and teen books. Gross me out!
Thanks to Library Voice for the peek at the cover.
