True Beauty of the Beast playlist

I made a playlist for one of my stories. It's in no particular order and is subject to change. It's my modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Note: The song called "Home" is the "Beast" character's song.

Gilmoritis

So, have you ever heard of Gilmore Girls? Or watched it? This is my favorite TV show ever. And this weekend I had a sudden hankering for it, so I found a (possibly questionable) way to watch in on the internet for free. I watched some of the best ones and now I'm starting from the beginning. Right now I'm on episode 11 in season one. The quirkiness and quick delivery of comebacks are fabulous, Lorelai and Rory are awesome. And I love Luke, he falls in with Mr Darcy and Finn for me. Got to love a scruffy guy in plaid.

Anyways, that's what I've been doing with my time recently, I've also decided to rewrite a story of mine in a notebook. I got a blank notebook from the stack my mom has from the great back to school deals she finds. So that's something else I'm doing, it's a lot different to write with a pen instead of WordPerfect with a delete button. I hope to get use to it and be able to get my ideas out. Well, thanks for listening.

Guess What! It's another Breaking Dawn review!

*mystic voice* You are now entering a spoiler free zone. Violators will be deleted. *fade out*


Okay, so you could put "Breaking Dawn reviews" into a search engine and probably a billion results would pop up. So I guess this won't be a very original post, but I must share my heart about this book. So deal.

First off all, I have to tell you I've been spending my days feverishly reading this book, way into the later (some say squeaky) hours of the night. I have dreamed about this book, I would wake up thinking about this book. I got a sticker from the release party saying "I got Bitten my Breaking Dawn" I should say "I've been bitten by the Twilight Saga all summer." (I read Twilight for the first in April/May of this year, the rest will fall in line)
These books have always had a certain hold on me. Even when I didn't always agree with the characters.

I liked Breaking Dawn so much more then the other three combined. I finally found a reason to like Bella in this book, which goes to show you never lose faith in anybody. Even a character. I liked how it explored many layers of love, just like The Host. I think that's probably the most appealing part about it. And it was a lot more mature then the others. It wasn't high school drama anymore, it had the same feel as the last HP book, too me.

There was a lot of weird in this book, but just because I wasn't expecting it. But you know, vampires in love with a human is pretty freaky as well, so the other things really aren't out of place.

Overall, I came to appreciate Bella more. Yay! I liked Edward a lot more as well.

Thank you, Stephenie, for a Vampire Summer 2008! I'll probably never have a normal bedtime ever again.
