Eclipse  
I just finished. It took me a little while but it was definitely worth it. I'm very impressed. I REALLY enjoyed this book. I liked it better than the second and possibly more than the first, but its hard to compare because they all have such a different feel.

It was weird because I was kind of embarrassed to be reading this book on the train (particularly when a couple people asked me about it and I was like, "Its a teenage vampire love story"). I should keep in mind that every other person on the train is reading Harry Potter. I'm always tempted to yell something spoilery to these people (they aren't TRUE fans if they are still in the process of reading it), but I hold back. But then the other day, the Metro (this free newspaper they give to everyone on the train) had a full page ad for Eclipse. I couldn't believe it. I mean, the ad was HUGE and seriously staring me in the face. I was definitely less embarrassed to be seen with it after that.

More people need to get into this series. It is too good. I'd say that I'd write a review of the book but seeing how the Spider-Man 3 and HP7 reviews haven't quite happened yet, I wouldn't hold your breath.

In other news, I think the shows I'm most excited for this Fall are Heroes, Ugly Betty, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. I'm going to continue to pimp Avatar until people start watching it. Its really that good. M. Night Shyamalan is slated to direct the live action version but I can't imagine it being anywhere near as good as the cartoon.

I enjoyed it as well - I'm going to a signing in Cincinnati to meet alphielj, so I'll get to see what the BIGTIME fans are like!

I'd watch Avatar except I think I'm down to Heroes and Smallville this year. Just too busy!
