Look what came in the mail today



My husband subscribes to the magazine Entertainment Weekly and it comes in the mail every Friday. I went to check the mail and low and behold the Twilight novels were the feature for this weeks magazine. Actually, it's not so much the books, but the new movie that they are discussing. I haven't read the article yet because I have not started the books. I am so deathly afraid of spoilers that I just briefly glanced at the article. I definitely plan on reading the books because of the crazy popularity they have been receiving. Plus, I happen to really dig that there is a love triangle.

Let's focus on the picture they chose for the cover of this weeks issue of EW, shall we? I just want to mention how crazy Robert Pattinson, aka Edward looks in this picture. Look at the intensity in his eyes and his pale skin and red lips. I am not sure what to think about him. Dare I say it but, (gasp) he looks DEAD! Oh, and what's up with his hair. I am not liking the do at all. I don't know if you can make it out from the picture, but his hands have grease or dirt on them. I have the magazine sitting in front of me and I can see it clear as day. Was he just out digging graves before the photo shoot?

Bella is gorgeous. I wonder what the apple she is holding signifies. It makes me think of Adam and Eve or Snow White. Of course, my opinion on all of this really doesn't matter at the moment because I have not yet read the books. Any thoughts from those of you who have? Are you looking forward to the books heading to the big screen? What do you think of the choice of actors for the lead roles; good or bad?

*On a side note - For those of you who have read the series, Is Breaking Dawn the last novel or will there be more?

Breaking Dawn is the last of the books. I haven't read the third one yet, but the first two are really good and I'm hoping that the movie is true to form. Read them! You'll like it.

Breaking Dawn is the last of the books written from Bella's narrative, but Stephanie Meyer plans to continue the basic theme of the series from other POV's. I'm anxious to read the series from the beginning from Edward's POV.

That picture is awful and doesn't do anything for the story, IMO. Edward is supposed to be so beautiful it hurts to look at him and Bella is supposed to be somewhat strange and plain. I'm thinking no..

Also, as a warning, the first two books were good (though the first is definitely the best) but I didn't think the third measured up.

EXACTLY.

They made Edward too freaky looking on the cover. But I do like Bella. And I have seen her in a few movies and I think she is pretty well cast.
I would sell my left boob for an ARC of Breaking Dawn.

What!? Edward is supposed to be the beautiful one? Whoops, no offence to Robert, but he missed the mark. Actually, it is more the fault of the make-up person because the messy hair and freaky make-up are the problems, not him.

And Katie, only the left boob? What's wrong with the right one? :) I know, I am such a smart ass!

Katie(babs) said...

Hee hee. I got my EW today and the article about Meyer is very interesting. BD has 3.2 in pre-sales!! And I am one of those!
Okay, I will sell my left boob and right elbow then.

The first thing I thought when I saw that EW cover a few days ago was "WHAT?!? Edward's supposed to be the hottest guy in the school!! THAT is not the hottest looking guy in school." My 13 y.o. concurs. Hopefully the movie will do the first book justice. *crossing fingers*

I just bought "Twilight" last week and haven't read it yet, but the cover image (which I think is really strong and gorgeous) features a hand holding an apple...is that what the magazine cover is referring to or is there something in the book too?

Cedric looks really, really lovely in the movie posters I've seen, though this EW cover really did nothing for him. I think it's the hair.

Jill D. said...

Christine, I'm glad it's not just me then!

Kate, I haven't read the books yet so I am not sure what the apple means. If you find out, let me know :)

Holly said...

If I'm not mistaken (and dude, I so could be) the apple signifies temptation. Edward is tempted for the first time in decades by Bella. Her "scent" calls to him.

Katie(babs) said...

Holly you said it perfectly! I was just going to say because the apple is on the cover of the book! LMAO.
Also Bella is like Eve tempting Edward to take a bite. Meaning: Bella wants him to have sex with her! Perhaps it should have been a cherry.

Jill D. said...

Katie - Jeeze... LMAO!

Thanks for the info ladies!

Kate said...

Ah, apples=temptation. Right!

Kate said...

Ok, now I've finished the book and I can't for the life of me figure out why Victoria and James are in the picture above when they have such a small part of the book...??? What about Alice, Rosalie, Emmett, Carlisle, any of the family if they wanted more vampires in the picture? Or any of her human friends? Do Victoria and James play a bigger part in things to come?
