Tonight I'm taking my oldest daughter to a Breaking Dawn Midnight Release Party at our local Barnes & Noble. Or is she taking me? Not really so sure about that. I read Twilight and New Moon back to back in September 2006 and she only read them last summer right before Eclipse came out in August 2007. Then we passed Eclipse back and forth for a few days while we read it at the same time. In the last two weeks she's been rereading the first three books so she's uber ready to read Breaking Dawn. Which will be in
my her my her my hands at 12:01 am tonight. Well... technically tomorrow morning, but you know what I mean.
We went to B&N last night to sign up for the party, and I'm so glad I did. The clerk said they have 200 books in the store and we were the 194th to sign up. I added my friend's
daughter's name to the list, and then there was a teen next to me who claimed the 196th, so as of 9:30 pm last night there were only 4 copies of Breaking Dawn unaccounted for at my local B&N! I imagine they only put aside 200 for the party, but there will be more available when the store opens again at 9 am on Saturday morning?!
It appears that as part of the festivities tonight we are asked to claim our team. Team Edward or Team Jacob. I'm hoping there is a Team Switzerland, because I love both Edward and Jacob. I think Edward is the one for Bella. Only because they have this intense soulmate kind of chemistry. Which is amazing and incredible, yet... not enough for me. Physiological chemistry is not enough to convince me he's the perfect hero or the perfect match for Bella. Or me. Jacob, on the other hand, is a genuine, warm, supportive friend whose love would be steadfast and true... from the heart. Edward's is this undeniably intense attraction that's more fantasy like. With that being said, the ideal hero, to me, is one who a little bit Edward and and a little bit Jacob all rolled up into one hero. Who is this hero? My husband.
If you read Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga, what team are you on? Team Edward? Team Jacob? or Team Switzerland?
