12.12.08

December 12th...the release date of the Twilight Movie (this is a pretty awesome movie clip, and has gotten me totally geared up for the film). I'm excited to see the movie, and I'm really hoping that Edward's character will come close to fulfilling my expectations...I have my doubts...

I just finished reading Stephenie Meyer's Twilight for the second time. Meyer has been selected as one of TIME MAGAZINE's 100 Most Influential People of 2008, a fact that I heard from my grandmother. So you know if my grandmother has heard of the Twilight series, in spite of the fact that it's a vampire romance novel for teens, it must be good!

I'm on a book kick after our Enrichment Meeting last night, a meeting of "The Finer Things Club," (a complete and utter success!). Since I haven't been feeling well the last couple days (the doctor didn't seem to want to prescribe me anything for my mastitis--I guess she thinks I'm faking?!) I've been taking advantage of the down time and getting some reading in. I'm over half-way through Key Lime Pie Murder, the latest loan from my friend Joanna's murder mystery with recipes series by Joanne Fluke.

Now I'd better get to work on my lesson for Relief Society on Sunday. I've got it outlined, but there's still some preparation to do. Then next Tuesday, my copy of Stephenie Meyer's latest book, The Host arrives in the mail. I can't wait to see what's in store for her adult readers!

So, Tori is wanting to read the Twilight book this summer with some friends, but my Mom saw the review on the back and it said it was "deeply seductive". I've heard great things about it and I plan on reading it this summer after the NCLEX, but my Mom is wondering if you would let your 13 year old daughter read it?

So, obviously I love the series...but as to your question: No, I would most definitely not let my 13-year-old daughter read it. It may be classified as "Young Adult" fiction, but I would only recommend it to the older than 16 crowd (the main character, Bella, is 17, and though Edward never takes advantage, things get a little steamy!). Sorry Tori!
