I haven't read the book yet either! I remember "maternity leave" reading. I had the 4th Harry Potter book in the hospital with me and the nurses laughed at me. They said "you won't have time to read that" and I laughed!

I still have not read that book. LOL.
I guess the key is to read the book BEFORE you go into labor.

Yeah, I'm being optimistic, at best. The only book I managed to read last time was Anne Lamott's Operating Instructions--I could enjoy it in small bits, late at night, and it helped that she was going through exactly what I was!


I read all four books the week before the movie came out. I loved the movie too, so good!

Julie P.

I thought I was the only "book lover" who hadn't read them yet!


I do plan to read the book once I can get a copy from the library. I think I'll skip the movie though. It's a book I'm not really interested in myself, but I want to try it to see what all the fuss is about.


I saw the movie this weekend also!. I just finally read the book (so NOT me) about two weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised and eagerly anticipated the movie. Loved both the book and the movie. Can't wait for more.


Thanks to my son's babysitter, I just started reading the first book this weekend and I'm hooked! I can't wait to see the movie once I'm done. :)

this trailer gives you all the best parts. I can't wait for it to be on DVD...I'll be glued to the tv for weeks. I loved these books and hope all of them become movies.


I've read all the books and enjoyed them. I thought the movie was pretty good, too, though I'm not sure I was supposed to find it funny! ;)

I realize I'm in the minority, I actually thought the book "Twilight" was terrible. I was disappointed, because I really wanted to be able to get into this series. I tried to read the second one, "New Moon," just to give the books another chance, and couldn't even make it halfway through before I gave up for good. In retrospect, I should have realized that these books are mainly teenage romances, just with a vampire boy instead of a human. If I'd lowered my expectations more I might have enjoyed them.


I just saw Twilight with my husband and fell in love with the characters. This prompted me to read the book. I could not put the it down. I am hooked. I am started the second book in the serious.
I was on Stephanie Meyer website and I learned that she was writing a book in Edwards’s perspective (Midnight Sun), but someone leaked the first 12 chapters on the internet. She decided not to publish the book, buthas made it available on her website. I am disappointed that she will not publish it, in my opinion it was better than Twilight.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
