Sunday Salon

The Sunday

It's Sunday once again. The last Sunday in March. . . how can this be? 2009 is just moving by too quickly for me. Anyway, Friday evening I finally saw Twilight. Honestly, I thought it was just okay. At times I thought the acting was a bit stiff. I was disappointed with Edward's and Bella's relationship. Don't get me wrong; I thought the actors had great chemistry. It's just that I didn't believe the intensity of their relationship. Had I not read the book, I would have interpreted Edward's facial expressions and behaviors as angst, not love for Bella. After the movie ended, it made me realize how much I enjoyed reading Twilight and may be I will read it again.

I spent my Saturday afternoon and evening watching the NCAA tournament games. I'm happy that my alma mater, UConn, is in the final 4!! GO HUSKIES!! Today I finished reading While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky. I hope to write the review later this week. I have to write my review for Handle with Care first. Later this afternoon, I will start True Colors by Kristin Hannah. Last year I read Firefly Lane, the first novel I read by this author, and loved it. So, I'm looking forward to reading this as well.

That's my Sunday. How are you spending your day?


  1. I had the same reaction to the Twilight movie. All of those huge pauses and meaningful stares. Didn't really do it for me.

    Enjoy the rest of your GO HUSKIES! weekend.

    I am reading The Post Office Girl today and loving it. Highly recommend it if you get the chance.

  2. The movie definitely did not do the book justice. Bella and Edward's relationship was so much more complex in the book than the movie made it seem. Very disappointing!

  3. I haven't watched the movie or read the book yet. I'm still not so sure I can do the whole vampire thing.

    I spent most of the weekend doing major spring cleaning, but did find time to finish up Flying into the Sun by Ginger Blymyer. My age is starting to show because I'm really loving finding books like this one where the heroine is older and living life on her terms.
