Where's Festivus When You Need It

Currently reading - Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer

Happy Easter to my Christian buds, Happy Passover to my Jewish friends, and a Belated Happy Ostera to my pagan sisters and brothers! (I know, I know. Bad, bad witch for being late.)

DH, GK and I will be taking in How to Train Your Dragon between hard-boiled eggs, too much chocolate and turkey today.

(For the turkey explanation, see my Thanksgiving post.)


  1. I can't wait to hear what you think of Eclipse. I will admit that's its my favorite of the four but sometimes I'm embarrassed to even admit to likely the series at all, but we can't help what we love regardless of the many writing rules broken.

  2. First of all, I think a majority of the people who trash Stephanie are simply jealous. That kind of crap pisses me off to no end.

    On the nitpicky sh**, yeah, she made a lot of "mistakes" in Twilight, but she told a hell of a story. So strong of a story I didn't notice the alleged mistakes because she kept me IN THE STORY. That's the hallmark of a good writer.

    New Moon was...uhhhm...not quite as good. I chalked it up to the sophomore slump.

    So far I'm enjoying Eclipse, but honestly I read her books for the same reasons I read most other bestsellers--to figure out what they're doing right.

    (Though I thoroughly admit to watching the movies purely for Taylor Lautner - LOL!)
