Book 12 Review

Book # 12: Twilight

Author: Stephenie Meyer

Pages: 499

Genre: Thriller/Supernatural Romance

Rating: C+


Description: Headstrong, sun-loving,17-year-old Bella declines her mom's invitation to move to Florida,and instead reluctantly opts to move to her dad's cabin in thedreary, rainy town of Forks, WA. She becomes intrigued with EdwardCullen, a distant, stylish, and disarmingly handsome senior, who isalso a vampire. When he reveals that his specific clan hunts wildlifeinstead of humans, Bella deduces that she is safe from hisblood-sucking instincts and therefore free to fall hopelessly in lovewith him. The feeling is mutual, and the resulting volatile romancesmolders as they attempt to hide Edward's identity from her familyand the rest of the school.


Review: Having heard and read countlessglowing reviews for this book, i decided to give it a try,considering i've long been a fan of vampire fiction. Unfortunately,this book ended up being more of a sickeningly sweet romance, then athriller involving the supernatural. Reading it, it was overlyobvious that, unlike what some other reviewers had said...this bookis in fact geared toward the teen set. The plot was just too over-topcornball for me. How many times do we really need to read the Bellacharacter describe how perfect and beautiful her sulky beau, Edward,is? In the end, i was left incredibly disappointed.

American Idol Rant

Now, let me first say i knew going into tonight's performance show that Blake had little to no chance of winning. but when i saw the 'winning' song performance, i heard the door slam on any hopes he had of pulling it off. This so called winning song was 1) absolutely sickeningly sweet and awful. 2) in other words...the song, which would be the last impression the viewers had of them, would be INCREDIBLY, OBSCENELY slanted in Jordin's favor. as if i needed further proof that show is fucking rigged. My dad's argument to this, is that if it was, Melinda would still be in the competition. I disagree...the fact that Melinda is gone proves my point...she would have been far harder to beat then Blake.

I have lost any respect that i ever had for the producers of this show.

Not, that Jordin didn't out-perform Blake...she did. but how could she NOT given what she had to work with. That song would have never been something that Blake would have chosen to sing, or in fact, anyone else would have picked for him. i just think it's completely unfair that he wasn't given a song more suited to his style...the way they seemed to cater to Jordin. fair is fair.

According to DialIdol, Jordin is beating Blake by about 30%. It's a joke. And i'm annoyed to the point, that if i wasn't watching the show with my dad, as bonding time...i would give it up for life.

Better day

So, my dad spoke to Mrs Welcome, and she told him not to worry about the SS letter...for us to just send the stuff when we have it. Thankfully the letter came today.

Another annoying day at work. i understand, i'm basically getting paid to stand around. But it's so incredibly boring most of the time. and then the customers are a pain in the ass as well. and that aspect is going to get worse since the aliens will be descending this weekend.

dad says he's feeling a little blue. i wish i had a way of cheering him up. i feel helpless. & still worried about the Medicaid thing.

*bangs head on table*

I didn't miss working sundays

This was my first sunday working in a while, what with days off and vacation. i missed the $, but not the bullshit. it was a royal pain in the ass. but then i'm feeling back in the swing of things, unfortunately. Same annoying customers...same annoying employees. what else is new? not much.

really happy i got the chance to talk to Susan last night. makes me realize how much i miss having friends to talk to on a regular basis. still freaked out a little about the whole greg encounter. it was just unbelievable that he actually thought he could swing right into some cyber sex with me, after everything that's happened. no wonder i hate me. no, i don't hate men. i hate people in general. there's a difference. i'm an equal opportunity hater.

What. The. Hell.

I signed on to messenger, for the first time in ....months, and Greg IM's me.

Where the ever living FUCK did that come from?!

EDIT:

ok, this is one hell of a bizarre night. After all that with Greg....Susan calls me. At least i was happy about that!

Back for good...i hope.

i'm making a promise to myself to write in this more often.
i'm so tired and i never seem to get enough sleep.
so much stress.
i need about a week's worth of uninterrupted sleep.
