It's really great to be alive right now for several obvious reasons. When I was released from the hospital one of the things I found that made a big impact on my life post transplant were a series of books from an LDS writer. My aunt from California told me I really needed to read them just before I became sick and dying. I would have never had the opportunity to have ever read them had it not been for Divine intervention :) I didn't know anything about the books when I began reading them. But seriously, they really gave me something to be excited about and looked forward to the other book releases. I read the three that were already released and had to wait for the 4th book of the Twilight series. It was a goal I knew I wanted to live to experience. After reading the books series I began to convince everyone I knew that they needed to read the books. You can imagine my excitement when in 2008 I heard they were making a movie. . .to be released November 2008. I had a new goal to live towards. November 20th was a must live to day. I waited in a mob of teeny boppers and hormone driven teen girls and boys for over 3 hours to watch my movie. I was a little disappointed and irritated at the result. . . . When I heard a movie of the second book got the green light, they got a bigger budget and a new director that I was familiar with my hopes began to build.
November 20th, 2009 was a must live to date. . . today is here, I am here, I went to the 9:30am matinee. I really, really liked this movie more than the first. I won't complain about what I didn't like, but I did really like the Wolves, Jacob, and how accurate & well done the director interpreted the book. It was very close and entertaining. All I would say is "Less Edward and Bella and MORE Jacob PLEASE!!"
I have even read Stephenie Meyer's book "The Host" and I am happy they are also making a movie of it. How I would love to be in it :)
So as you can see I am a big fan of Stephenie. Her books are a big part of my life after transplant. They gave me something to look forward to and be excited about~ it was what I really needed.
*Hopefully one of these days I can give her a signed copy of my book and get my Twilight series books signed by her :)
