October 15, 2015


I can't quite believe it's been 10 years since Twilight. The book, that is. And for it's 10 year anniversary Stephenie Meyer re-wrote the story and swapped the genders. I will get it at some point, but I'm not rushing out to do so because it's a 2-in-1 with Twilight re-written as well so this book is gonna be BIG. I'm resisting, but I know I'm a completist and should just get it. Sigh.


Thanks for the laughter at stART sisters! I needed it. We did get to VV but there were no good books left. :( Oh well!

Ten years???!!! I can't believe that either! I heard about the gender swapping. I wonder if it will be kind of feminist, having Bella telling Edward what to do, LOL.

That's fascinating, Shannon. I'm wondering exactly the same thing Suzie is and so curious about how that will read. Interesting!

stART was totally awesome! I'm so glad we could share all those giggles. That's too bad about the books, Suzie! I managed to get out and buy a couple that I want to use for collaging, including one of the Arctic that is beautiful.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed getting all giggly, although sorry to hear there weren't any books to enjoy at the VV sale Suzie. I didn't make it out, but considering I'm trying to pair down atm I think that's a-okay. Next time books are on sale though, all bets are OFF! No limit!

I think part of the reason Stephenie Meyer rewrote it was exactly to address people's comments about the power/gender dynamics. I really want to read it. I hope my library gets it!
