I just finished Twilight. I slept really good last night and woke up around 8 AM and read for a little bit while the house was still nice & quiet. Not sure how I feel about the book. And, I'm not sure how good the movie will be. I kind of feel like Edward is a controlling, creepy boyfriend and Bella is too quick to change her entire life for him. I worry about what message this book is sending to all the young girls out there who have read it (and from what I understand, this book has a cult following). I think too many girls today are so quick to give up everything for a boy. Women so quickly loose their identities -- we are identified as wives, mothers, daughters but never really use other words to describe ourselves. I guess what I'm saying is that I would have liked to see Bella play hard to get. I think she just gave in to Edward too soon and I would have liked to see her explore new friendships in her new town before she fell in love so quickly. As a character, I don't feel that she developed, she just jumped into a relationship.

On another note, last night the girls & I went to Tuscaloosa to hang out w/ Chris & the boys at camp. KJ was so over-tired and cranky and somehow lost her lacrosse ball that she had decorated w/ her name all over it. Then, she got upset because we didn't have bathing suits w/ us and all the boys were going to the aquatic center to swim after their scrimmage. We brought Haden w/ us to talk w/ the Loyola coaches. Haden couldn't attend camp this week but the coaches remembered him from last year and asked about him.

i am almost finished with the book. i think i feel like you. i think it is just silly that she fell for him so fast espc. after moving and meeting new people and such. i agree, she isn't developing. i think edward is controlling and creepy too. i'm having issues with getting into the vamire thing too. not sure about this.
