Whats up?

Jenny ESP said...

what up?

Hot Pants said...

Not much. What about you?

eekareek said...

Can't stop laughing about Amy yeti.

Jenny ESP said...

jinx

samandlysander said...

Hey everyone. I'm sorry you gize hated the book. The reviews were pretty hilarious though I must say.

eekareek said...

Who would you rather kiss. Amy's yeti or Edward without a shirt on?

Hot Pants said...

Yeti's are hot and we all know it.

eekareek said...

I didnt hate the book

Jenny ESP said...

Yetis are the next fallen angel, I think

eekareek said...

In fact, I would even go so far as to say I liked the book.

Jenny ESP said...

I didn't hate it either. There were a few problems, but I actually enjoyed reading it.

eekareek said...

If Twilight didnt exist, we might all like the book.

Hot Pants said...

I didn't hate it. The parallels were just a lot. Plus with New Moon just coming out...

Jenny ESP said...

It didn't bored me at all, which is the worst thing a book can do IMO.

Hot Pants said...

True Dat

samandlysander said...

I loved it but I didn't really have high expectations just wanted something to keep me entertained. It was pretty similar to twilight but it seems like a lot of books are these days.

StandsMom said...

I have to say, although annoyed - I wasn't bored either.

Jenny ESP said...

Why, oh why, did she name him Patch??

Hot Pants said...

Mine won't be

eekareek said...

I think I liked it also because I just borrowed Amy's copy. It is like seeing a movie at the dollar theater.

StandsMom said...

How are you guys, anyway?

Hot Pants said...

I didn't mind his name. Kinda Day's of Our Livesish

samandlysander said...

I don't know why anyone would think the name Patch was sexy.

StandsMom said...

I'm taking an ambien in about 15 min. It's been a long couple of weekends and I'm SOSOSOSOSOOOO tired.

eekareek said...

I am doing great after seeing Amy's yeti. Still laughing by the way.

Jenny ESP said...

Good, good, Standz. And you?

Hot Pants said...

Clump is sexy too.

Landee said...

Who wanted to barf when she touched his nasty scar? ::raising hand::

eekareek said...

I don't like the name Patch. It may not have been as bad if we didn't know how he got the name. Uh, yeah, he is a wimp so we call him Patch. Mmm, Turn on.

Jenny ESP said...

I saw the potential in this book too. I wonder is she plans to give us more details about fallen angels in the next book? I might read it.

StandsMom said...

Me too!!! ::both hands up::

Landee said...

I thought Ambien was for when you weren't tired but wanted to sleep? What the?

Hot Pants said...

Clot, chunk, spot... All good names.

eekareek said...

Rocky Road. Me Chunk

Jenny ESP said...

The black scars and birthmarks were a total turn off.

Landee said...

And I am sad I didn't mention Vee. I was hoping someone would kill her the whole book.

eekareek said...

The book was very predictable. I also didn't feel like it was obvious that Patch was in love with her. How did Jules figure it out?

Hot Pants said...

I love birthmarks. Especially ones with thick black hairs growing out of them.

Hot Pants said...

Jules could read minds and the author is going to write another book. Same story, but from Jules perspective. She's calling it Midnight Sun-shine.

samandlysander said...

Ughh Vee was the most annoying she had a weird name too.

StandsMom said...

Ambien for me is to make me go to sleep when I'm tired cause when I'm tired, I usually can't go to sleep. I know. It's exhausting.

Yeti's are HAWT!

eekareek said...

I love birthmarks that are on inner thighs and shaped like a fish. JERKS!!!!

Hot Pants said...

Does it have thick black hairs growing out of it Sara? (Don't answer)

StandsMom said...

Oh wait. Did I just type that for reals?

eekareek said...

I also didn't fully understand why Jules died.

Jenny ESP said...

I love birthmarks on the right bum cheek!!

Hot Pants said...

Because he was a bad guy, doyee.

eekareek said...

It is not that high up, Amy.

StandsMom said...

Markie23 said...

I just got in from a very long exhausting drive from Phoenix. I didn't have time for a review, and I won't last long in this discussion. But I'm here now... for Sammy.

Jenny ESP said...

K, Vee didn't bug me at all. I thought she was very teenage-ish and kind of entertaining.

Hot Pants said...

I was actually picturing the chinese waiter I had.

eekareek said...

Yeah didnt make sense. Jules should still be alive

samandlysander said...

For me! Thanks I didn't think you were coming.

Jenny ESP said...

One thing I forgot to mention, I was actually creaped out a few times. For reals. Like scared.

PS. where the h is Markie?? Did he skip out on us? Not on Sam's watch, he didn't...

Hot Pants said...

Just for Sammy Mark? RRUUUUDDDDEEE!

eekareek said...

Vee didn't bug me either. She was kind of like the "Jessica" and I love Jessica

Hot Pants said...

Yeah, I liked Vee.

Markie23 said...

I didn't hate it, but I definitely didn't love it. It just moved too slow for me. Not enough plot development, and not enough questions answered. I didn't really care about the characters and I'm not particularly interested in finding out what happens to them next.

eekareek said...

Yeah MArkie, you need to be fair.

Hot Pants said...

I just kept wandering why she could fall for Patch when Edward and Jacob are out there.

Jenny ESP said...

Yay, Markie!! Haven't missed a one!

Landee said...

All those who liked Vee & Jessica were beotches in HS. <---fact.

eekareek said...

Say What??? I am totally interested in finding out how Patch guards Nora. Not to mention we didn't know he couldn't feel anything. This changes the counter top scene.

Hot Pants said...

I.WAS.NOT!

Jenny ESP said...

Do any of you think the author purposely borrowed stuff from Twilight, or did she not see the exact similarities?

Hot Pants said...

Yeah, I'll probably borrow it from Sara when she buys it.

Amanda said...

Sorry I'm late. I've been trying for the past hour to get all my kids to bed with no success. What did I miss?

Amanda said...

Sorry I'm late. I've been trying for the past hour to get all my kids to bed with no success. What did I miss?

eekareek said...

Landee, your just jealous. ::sashaying towards the door::

Jenny ESP said...

I liked Patch, I just didn't believe the relationship between him and Nora. Nora is a lame name too BTW. Sorry if any of your gizes names are Nora.

Landee said...

I heard Becca had a dream where this girl reaches out and touches a nasty scar and he's all "WTF?" and then she woke up and wrote Hush Hush.

Markie23 said...

I am VERY excited to read Amy's new book. There's nothing more interesting than a vertically challenged Yeti.

Hot Pants said...

I love it when Sara sashays.

Jenny ESP said...

Hey Amanda! We need a "pro" perspective. Give it to us.

samandlysander said...

It was her first book maybe she just didn't really see the similarities. The next book may not be so similar.

eekareek said...

Us Vee and Jessica types can sashay anyone off the floor.

Jenny ESP said...

I love it when Sara "saunters" too. I hate it when she just plan walks. BOR-RING!

Markie23 said...

What is Amanda a "pro" in?

eekareek said...

I don't mind the similarities. In fact, I am fine if all the books are just remakes of the Twilight Saga

Landee said...

I mean Vee is going through stuff too...

StandsMom said...

Is the Yeti going to be shaved? Cause he might look a little scrawny and weird all baldy and stuff.

Jenny ESP said...

Oh Oh! Becca also used the word "flank" several times, and when describing positions of inanimate objects, a la Smeyer.

Amanda said...

I have been so disturbed by the similarities to Twilight that I plan on emailing the author and asking her what's up.

Hot Pants said...

I bet in the next book the group of angels that keep the fallen angels in check is going to come and claim to kill Nora unless she is changed into an angel. Then they will prepare for this huge war that is going to happen. And then they give there baby to a dog and say, "Jacob...my son." I'll probly cry.

eekareek said...

Amanda is a pro in investigating work. Amanda, google "v shaped scars"

Jenny ESP said...

"pro" as in, she liked the book. Like pro-life.

Amanda said...

Actually I did do some googling with this book. Did anybody else google the book of enoch, fallen angels, and nephilim? I did.

Landee said...

::getting fake teary thinking about Amy's "my son" comment::

Markie23 said...

In the next Book Nora will become pregnant and name her baby Renesvee.

Hot Pants said...

Is everyone off googling stuff right now?

StandsMom said...

I looked up the book of Enoch.

eekareek said...

I did my googling earlier and now I need to repent

Amanda said...

I also read the author's blog and stuff and she mentioned something about the book taking six years to write. How does that compare to when Twilight was written? I know she had her dream in June but I don't know the year, was it 2004?

Jenny ESP said...

Sara googled "v-shaped scars" and got pictures of naked people. I tried it but it didn't work.

Hot Pants said...

Sara were you googling Lady Gaga again?

StandsMom said...

I'm starting to get all the zombies, fallen angels, vampires (Cullen's excluded), graces and stuff all wound up together.

eekareek said...

Her baby rensevee, will be born with scars down her back and when she wants to communicate with someone, you will have to touch her scars

Jenny ESP said...

The author said she had a dream??? for reals?

Hot Pants said...

That took SIX YEARS?!?!?!?! Seriously? I expect way more now!!!

Amanda said...

So maybe it's all a coincidence, I'm not sure. That's why I plan on emailing Becca and finding out for myself. Even still the publisher shouldn't have allowed this book to be such a knock off. It's bothersome.

Landee said...

No no no...in the next book Patch is all "the worst part is, YOU ALREADY KNOW."

But he's talking about the fact that Vee is annoying.

Amanda said...

No, I meant Stephenie had a dream in June but I don't know the year.

StandsMom said...

I'm reading Fire right now. It's moving a little slowly, but I'm enjoying it.

eekareek said...

I googled "upside down v shaped scars" and tummy tuck pictures popped up. Some of them were not wearing bras or shirts and I got quite the show. Anywho, I am second guessing if I want a tummy tuck now.

Hot Pants said...

Speaking of Hush Hush, does anyone want to go see New Moon later tonight?

Amanda said...

Did it bother you guys that Patch was so manipulative?

Jenny ESP said...

You are gonna email her? Let us know what she says. Even if she wrote it years ago, she could make a few key changes and it wouldn't be so similar.

eekareek said...

I bet she is just saying it took six years so that way people are all like "well she couldn't have copied Steph cuz they wrote their books at the same time"

Amanda said...

Hot Pants. YES! I've only seen it once and I need another fix.

StandsMom said...

StandsMom said...

Yes it did! I thought he was kind of piggish. He was pushy and just played on her hormones for attention.

StandsMom said...

What is the current count for people and New Moon viewings? I'm at 4.

eekareek said...

It totally bugged me Amanda. I didn't like him getting into her mind. Edward would never do that.

samandlysander said...

I didn't think it was too similar. A couple things yeah but not the whole book. I agree they should've had her change a couple of things so people wouldn't connect the two books.

Landee said...

I didn't mind the countertop scene. For the record.

Amanda said...

When I got to the baseball scene I was like, "You have got to be kidding me!"

Jenny ESP said...

I'm on her blog right now, trying to find where she said that stuff...

eekareek said...

I really enjoyed the counter top scene. It reminded me of when Jacob kissing Bella in the kitchen. Both kissing scenes were interrupted by the phone ringing. Coincidence? I think not.

Amanda said...

Do we have to travel to San Francisco to see New Moon or is Boise okay?

Markie23 said...

Ok, I'm fading fast. Loved the reviews... Great job Samantha... Excited for the next one... aaaaaand... Goodnight!

StandsMom said...

Portland - Seattle. Biology - Biology. Dark Eyes - Black eyes. School Gymnasium - Ballet Studio. Fallen Angel - Vampire. Should I keep going?

Hot Pants said...

I really wish Bella and Jacob had made it to that dirty old hotel room before Edward came back for her. These two should have combined their books.

Landee said...

HE DIDN'T ASK FOR YOU!

samandlysander said...

Bye. I'm tired too. Who's picking the next book?

eekareek said...

The hotel scene was good too until Patch didn't put his shirt on. It was like reliving Edward in Italy all over again.

Jenny ESP said...

Some things were exactly the same. Biology. Baseball. Google. And then the biggest one: the fact that he wanted to kill her, yet at the same time loved her. It all adds up to too much.

Hot Pants said...

Wasn't it Portland Maine though. Just sayin...

StandsMom said...

In a hidden wine cellar on a diry old mattress would have been okay too.

Landee said...

What if when Bella touched the grey slouchy nipple she saw Edward 80 years ago?

Amanda said...

eekareek said...

Lets just talk about New Moon and Jacob...

Hot Pants said...

Amanda, we'll see it in Boise. Let's take our kids while our hubbies are at work so they don't know we're seeing it for a 5th time.

samandlysander said...

Yeah but he didn't want to kill her because he was hungry it was because he wanted to be human. Maybe a little similar but not completely. And googling I let that one go because everyone googles things these days.

eekareek said...

Edward got all mad afterwards and said "you shouldn't have touched that!"

eekareek said...

What was that deleted comment?!?!?!!?!? Come ooooonnnn....::said like Vee::

Amanda said...

My son won't stop his bawlin'

Be back later

Jenny ESP said...

Even tho is was twinerz with Twilight, with a poor-man's Edward, I still liked reading it. I just wonder if Fitzpatrick thought the similarities would make it appeal to Twilight fans. Confused.

Hot Pants said...

Who is next month?

Jenny ESP said...

Bye, Markie. Shel is supposed to pick the book next month. Are you lurking in here, Shel?

StandsMom said...

I should prob take my macbook upstairs. What if the ambien kicks in and I fall over here on the couch?

eekareek said...

Becca probably got frustrated cuz every time she came up with an idea, Steph had beaten her to it

samandlysander said...

Bye, It was fun! Can't wait to see what book is next.

Hot Pants said...

That's been my problem too Sara. I'm pretty sure I've solved it with the Yeti though. Night Markie, Sam, and Stands..and Amanda. Who else said they were leaving?

eekareek said...

Errr... What are you talking about Standz?? Maybe you should log off cuz I am not sure I wanna hear about Brian's twinkle.

StandsMom said...

Landee said...

Remember when Patch was all "this is the last time you'll ever see me" and Nora screamed like a pig in her sleep? I loved that part. Major page turner.

eekareek said...

Good bye everyone who said they are leaving!!!

Hot Pants said...

Why don't I remember Heidi?

StandsMom said...

Sooooooo..........

Memzy said...

::glaring at the room with black eyes::

eekareek said...

I was just wondering about Heidi. And what is this twinkle she is talking about???

Hot Pants said...

Memzy was teasing us with herself.

eekareek said...

Sup Memzy?

Jenny ESP said...

Bye Sam! Thanks for picking the book this month! It was a fun read. For me at least.

StandsMom said...

I'm just talking nonsense cause I'm in that kind of a mood. And, I'm tired. T.I.R.E.D. I won't use the word twinkle anymore.

Hot Pants said...

Seriously, who was Heidi?

Memzy said...

You'll be happy to know I'm all clean and dreaming of a shirtless Jacob.

That's what this discush is about right?

Landee said...

PS I HATED how Patch kept "smiling with a hint of curiosity" and crap like that. Plus people's smiles never reached their eyes. Derrrrr.

Memzy said...

I liked the book too. I wouldn't recommend it tho. But it was an easy, keep me going, read.

Hot Pants said...

Anyone else download the New Moon soundtrack yet?

Jenny ESP said...

Heidi who? Twinkies? I think the Ambien is kicking in.

Memzy said...

There were a lot of double-smile meanings, tis true

Hot Pants said...

I just smiled so big it made my eyes close. I bet that's what she meant to say.

Memzy said...

I'm liking the NM soundtrack better with time.

And multiple viewings of the movie

Hot Pants said...

I love that Killers song.

Hot Pants said...

Is this ending? I was having fun. Guess I'll go get my homework done...

StandsMom said...

Never mind the Heidi thing. There is no Heidi. None. I'm just being a weirdo tonight. Plus - my sisters were snotbags over Thanksgiving weekend. They mocked me and New Moon the whole time. I hope I don't have screaming nightmares tonight.

eekareek said...

I always try and smile without it reaching my eyes. It is creepy looking. I don't have the New Moon soundtrack yet cuz I am poor but I do have a blank cd...

Amanda said...

I'm back. That was my deleted comment because one of my comments came up twice.

Does anyone plan on reading her second book? I do just because I think the author shows potential unlike that stupid Carrie Ryan chick.

eekareek said...

I will totally read the next book. That is when it starts getting good. Earth angel, earth angel, will you be mine.

StandsMom said...

I like the Muse song. The time signature is cool.

eekareek said...

I love Super Massive Black Hole.

Amanda said...

Oh em gee. I bought the NM soundtrack the second it was released. What's wrong with you guys? "Possibility" is my favorite song on the album but it took me a month to figure that out because I love them all.

eekareek said...

And Spotlight

eekareek said...

Weeeeellllll.....

Amanda said...

Did any of you watch the New Moon premiere on myspace? Anya Marina was a commentator and she was so annoying. Do any of you check TwilightMoms.com everyday like I do? I'm just wondering if that's normal or extra freakish?

Hot Pants said...

Fine, see ya later.

eekareek said...

I thinks Stands is asleep and Landee is probably at the movies for the 12th time and no one else is talking....

Amanda said...

Sara, I'll make you a copy and give it to you when we see the movie.

Jenny ESP said...

I always try to smile with just my eyes and not my mouth. It's called smizing, and all the top models do it. Ask Tyra.

Soundtrack... perfect.

eekareek said...

I don't check Twilightmoms but I don't think you are a freak cuz you do. In fact, it makes me like you more.

Amanda said...

I'll be the one wearing the "Property of Edward Cullen" tee shirt.

eekareek said...

WHO KEEPS DELETING THEIR COMMENTS?!?!?!?!

eekareek said...

Ohhhhh, you an Edward fan ::trying my hardest to not look disappointed::

Hot Pants said...

it's you Sara

Amanda said...

That's not me. I just did it once.

StandsMom said...

I was just removing some key words that could get me in trouble later. No biggie.

eekareek said...

Would I be using my CAPS if it was me, AMY??!!?!?!

Amanda said...

Jacob can kiss my .....

Jenny ESP said...

Gize, lets keep the comments clean, then I won't have to delete them.

Hot Pants said...

WHAT?!?!

eekareek said...

How. Dare. You.???!!! Don't bother burning me a copy of your CD

eekareek said...

Stands!!! No more deleting!! Just put up your ambien comment and suffer the consequences.

Amanda said...

And really it's a good thing I don't like Jacob because the other night my daughter finally admitted to a tiny crush on Taylor. I would be pretty freaked out to have crush on the same guy as my nine year old. At least Edward isn't jail bait. Or shark boy for that matter.

eekareek said...

La la la la la la ::covering my hands over my ears::

Amanda said...

And I'm still making you a CD because you know you want one, Jacob lover.

Landee said...

Sorry gize, my in-laws are here & we're visiting. I'm being lamerz.

Plus Amanda is...::sigh:: I can't even address this without getting emotional.

Amanda said...

Are any of you guys Kristen Stewart fans? I totally heart that girl.
