Help me catch back up with our book of the month program and make it awesome! Wouldn't it be awesome if each month we have hundreds of people on this website reading the same book around the same time and chatting about it?!

BOOKS RULE ! MOVIES AVERAGE !

When I did try to read the first book, I found that it moved extremely slow. The second book, "New Moon," I just became frustrated with Bella's indecision and obsession over Edward. However, in Eclipse and Breaking Dawn (which was my favorite), the writing was better and the book moved along fairly well.
As far as the movies go, I enjoyed "Twilight" even though some of the acting was cheesy. Also, it's difficult for me to want to see more because although I like Robert Pattinson as an actor, Kristin Stewart, the girl who plays Bella, is annoying. She's enjoyed success and acts unappreciative of what these movies have provided her. It's also annoying to see her on stage, and she can't seem to fomulate a single sentence without sounding like an idiot. If the reason for her acting the way she does is because she is an introvert, then she should "act" when she's receiving an award or speaking in public. I have to say that she is not someone I would want our young teen girls looking up to. Young teen girls need a strong, confident role model.
