Waiting on Wednesday (7) and Twilightin' for a Good Cause
Been a long time, I finally saw HP Part 2 and I wanna see it again! But on to other things...
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.
For this Waiting on Wednesday, I picked Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 2.
Release Date: October 11, 2011
Book Summary: (From Goodreads:) "Having uncovered the dark secret of her enigmatic classmate, Edward Cullen, Bella Swan embraces her feelings for him, trusting Edward to keep her safe despite the risks. When a rival clan of vampires makes its way into Forks, though, the danger to Bella has never been more real. Will she make the ultimate sacrifice to protect the people dearest to her?
The second volume of Twilight: The Graphic Novelcompletes the visual adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's worldwide bestselling debut novel and is a must-have for any collector's library."
My Thoughts: I'll admit it, I'm an art nerd and manga geek. I was skeptical of the first Twilight graphic novel, because other book-series-to-manga-series stories I'd read had confusing plots and were seemingly a waste of time and money. However, the first Twilight graphic novel was well done plot and art-wise, and I'm looking forward to the second volume. Young Kim's illustrations are closer to how I imagine Bella and Edward, more so than the movies. (Although, thanks to the movies, I can't imagine Jacob, Charlie, Mike, or Jessica any other way, the casting person really nailed them in my opinion). And, honestly, since the Twilight graphic novel was released, if done right, I'd really like to see a Harry Potter and a Hunger Games graphic novel series.
And, speaking of Twilight, this Saturday, Oshie and I are attending The Twilight Moms of Middle GA's Breaking Dawn Gala to raise donations for the Ronald McDonald House in Central GA. The Twilight Moms of Middle GA are a fantastic group of ladies who do a lot of charity events in the Macon, GA area.
If you live in the Macon, GA area or can travel and would like more information about attending the gala please visit www.twilightmomsofmiddlega.com to buy tickets. If I remember correctly, the DJ will be playing tunes till 11pm, Michael Welch will be signing autographs, and they'll be heavy hors d'oeuvers.
