Flo's Review
I picked this up on a whim when I was visiting my parents over Easter. It's a great little read! These books always astound me because they remind me just how much thought and planning goes into every little thing about a film. I really liked seeing some more of Catherine's thoughts about how to translate the book to film, especially since this one laid the framework for the rest of the movies. If you're a Twilight fan, this is definitely worth spending some time with!
