    I have read them and would love to discuss. My pg brain is making it hard for me to come up with a starting discussion questions. Ummm... Ok, here are a few. I know I have better discussion points but I finished the books about 2 months ago so I can't think right now. Some DO contain spoilers:

    1) The author herself has said that the last book is going to be tough to put into a movie, for various reasons. How do you think they will do the more difficult portions? Leave certain scenes out? Etc.
    2) Which actors/actresses do you see best for which roles? Would you change any of the current ones? Why or why not? Personally, I am a little worried about Robert for Eddward. Not because I don't think he's doing a good job. Actually, considering that outside of Twilight I find him rather unremarkable, I think he DOES do a good job making you swoon for him a bit in the movie. No, I worry because I know he's already a little skittish on all the attention he's receiving, that's just going to get worse I think, as the next few movies draw you in even more. But I worry because from interviews he seems to shy away a bit from the corny lovey-dovey side of Edward. Well...um...yeah. That gets waaaaaay worse. Has Robert read the books? He might want to know what he's getting into...
    3) For some reason the pregnancy occurred to me in book 3, but I dismissed it as impossible. Anyone else figure something out really early? Or get blindsided by something that others saw coming? I didn't figure out it was Edward on the phone in New Moon until Alice came right out and said it, for example.

    That's a start. Anyone care to add to those as discussion points?

    #1 I have a hard time imagining how they will carry out some of the scenes from the last book. I'd think they would need a huge budget for it. The pregnancy/birth will certainly be difficult. However, I think the hardest part will be what to do with Bella. How do you change her at that point, when the audience is so comfortable/used to Bella. She doesn't sound or look the same, can Kristen Stewart play her at that point, and it still be "like" the book? It doesn't seem so.

    #2 Right now I'm cool with all the cast. I guess my main concern is what to do with Kristen, which I just addressed. As far as the actors carrying out their parts. I figure this is what they do, and now they should have a good understanding of how big this is going to be/get! I still feel bad for how uncomfortable they seem to be with all the new found fame. Kristen Stewart also seems a little uncomfy with it all. IDK, maybe they thought this was going to be some small movie with a small following, and just weren't expecting it all to blow up and thrust them into the spotlight.

    #3 I'm one of those who really didn't spend a lot of time pondering what was going to happen. I read the series starting in Fall of 2007. Was done with it early 2008, and only had to wait until August for BD. Also The Host came out inbetween all of that, so I had that to help bide my time. I guess I wasn't really blindsided by anything, because I didn't go into it expecting one thing or the other. I was just along for the ride!! I was a fan of both Edward and Jacob (A Switzerland), so I was eager to see how that would play out. I was pleasantly surprised with the pregnancy. That was one of my major hangups for Bella picking Edward . I was glad she could have her cake and eat it too! A little shocked with the imprinting, but saw it coming in the book itself. I guess the most shocking thing was Alice and Jasper leaving. Though I really wanted to believe she had a plan the whole time!!

    Hi! I'm new to this board, but was searching out people talking about Twilight. I'm new to the series and just finished it last Wednesday (after reading constantly for a week).

    1. I think the biggest challenge with portraying Breaking Dawn will be the the birth, Renesmee's talent and Bella's talent. I can't imagine how they're going to portray a force-field around all of the vampires to protect them. But, with digital technology today, I think anything is possible in movies.

    2. I was a fan of the books before I saw the movie and I don't think the movie did the books any justice. I think my expectations after reading the book will just never be fulfilled. Nothing could possibly match my own ideas of what the characters were like, ya know? That's the problem with trying to adapt a movie to a book; everyone interprets literature differently and it would be impossible to satisfy everyone's expectations of how the characters should be portrayed.

    3. I considered the idea of Bella getting pregnant in book 3 as well, but wasn't sure if it was possible for Edward to procreate. But, once she started eating dozens of eggs and sleeping all day, I knew. I pegged Jacob imprinting on Renesmee as soon as he committed to the vampire's side, while Bella was still pregnant. Only because I thought there had to be more keeping him on that side than just Bella because she was obviously never leaving Edward. Yea, I suppose they were best friends and all, and he could have been sticking by her side because of that, but I just had a hunch there was more. I really wanted it to turn out that way because I really wanted Jacob to be happy.

    Here are some questions:

    1) which of the 4 books is your favorite and why?

    2) What happens when Bella is on her period?

    3) Have you read Midnight Sun (Twilight told from Edward's perspective, on her website)? Do you think Stephenie Meyer will complete it?

    1. My favorite of the 4 books was Breaking Dawn. It was such a huge relief that she was finally a vampire, that she had a baby, and that, in the end, everything turned out perfectly. Twilight is a close 2nd. New Moon was my least favorite... so sad... so depressing.

    2. I couldn't help thinking about what would happen if Bella got her period throughout all the books (except Breaking Dawn). My guess is Edward would go hunting.

    3. I am dying for Stephenie Meyer to complete Midnight Sun. Reading Edward's perspective and what he was thinking through Twilight (the first half of it, at least) was so interesting. Now I am reading Twilight again and it's so cool to know what was going on in his head! I would absolutely love it if she wrote the entire series from Edward's perspective!

    First off, so glad to have you join us in the obsession.

    1. Hmmm, I love them all, so it is hard to choose. I think Twilight is still my favorite, followed by Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, and New Moon.

    2. From what I've read online, the period blood is not appealing to vampires. I wondered about this too. Would be pretty hard on them if it was, especially attending a HS and all.

    3. I have not, I'm still holding out hope she will finish it, and I will get to read the version she intended to be read. If she ever says that she flat out isn't going to complete it, I will read it.

    I have favorites parts of each book, but if I had to pick a single book, my favorite is probably Eclipse.

    I've also thought about the period dilemma! ROFL

    Kelly, I can not believe that you've managed to hold out! I LOVE Midnight Sun. I also would love to read the entire Saga from Edward's perspective. There are so many times while reading the Saga that I wonder what's going through his head.
    There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic. ~ The Thirteenth Tale

    have you read any of the outtakes/extras? I love the prom remix and the phone call ones (can't remember what they are called right now - miscalculation and Rosalie maybe).
