This week we discussed the first two books in Richelle Mead’s Georgina Kincaid series (involving Succubi, Demons, Vampires, Angels, etc) and we’re all gearing up for this weekend’s release of the New Moon DVD (with more vampires and some werewolves). It’s never boring around here, I’ll tell ya that, lol.
As far as New Moon goes… there are a variety of places offering a range of “extras” for the DVD. As far as I’ve been able to gather, the actual movie and the special features are the same everywhere. If you haven’t pre-ordered your copy anywhere yet… here’s what I’ve found are the differences in the “extras”:
- 7 Minute “Exclusive” sneak peek at Eclipse. Behind the scenes videos and interviews. Premiere of new Bella & Edward finished scene.
- Includes Ultimate Fan Edition DVD and Twilight In Forks DVD (exclusive to Walmart).
- Exclusive 3rd disc with over 60 minutes of featurettes and bonus material
- Limited edition 5X7 card with film cell
- Standard DVD with option to watch streaming online at midnight on the 20th.
- In store and online – Standard DVD with “dreamcatcher” themed bag clip
- In store – Standard DVD – preorder includes $50 coupon book and 2010 Twilight or New Moon oversized calendar
The standard DVD’s with no extras will be available just about everywhere for a range of prices. These are the listings for anything special I could find. Can you guess which one I’LL be getting??
NOW… for the books… 🙂
We had two books to talk about this week. I’ve posted a review on our reviews page for Succubus on Top, and the review for Succubus Blues will be up ASAP. Feel free to click on the links and leave comments over there. I’ve tried to summarize our talking points from Monday’s discussion below in the comments section. It’s down there (instead of up here) because there will be spoilers. If you haven’t read up to book 2 yet, you can just skip the first comment to this post, lol. Feel free to add your own thoughts if you have read along with us. 🙂 I’d love to hear what you all think of the series so far. *we’re all liking them a LOT* Next meeting:
Monday, March 29th at 5:30 pm
at the tables outside Books-A-Million
Remember… Anyone wanting to participate in the project for this series needs to buy/download from public domain the Andrew Lang Color Fairy Tales. Read through as many as you like and find a modern day equivalent to compare/contrast it with. Discussion of these fairy tales will be on April 26th after we talk about the 5th Georgina book, Succubus Shadows.
For any of you who didn’t already know (most all who were there Monday knew, others may not), Tuesday the Twilight Graphic Novel was released. It’s absolutely beautiful! It’s illustrated in the very popular manga style by Young Kim, and is the first in a two volume set retelling Steph’s first book. I’ve ordered a copy online but don’t have it yet. I did, however, peek at the one in the store and I think it’s split right after the meadow scene (chapter 13 in the book). I can’t wait for it to arrive!! I haven’t seen a date for the second volume yet, but I’ll be keeping an eye out and will let you all know as soon as I do :-).
We also brought up Dragon*Con again. I know, I know, it’s a long way off (September 3-6), but I’m trying to get a ballpark idea of who’s still interested in going. I’ll definitely be going. I’ll be volunteering so I won’t be available to wander the whole time we’re there, but it’s better than not going at all. There’s a link in the sidebar for the Dragon*Con website to find out ticket and hotel information. There are a LOT of authors that I’m dying to meet, and quite a few actors from the Twilight/New Moon/Eclipse movies (and a few True Blood peeps). Keep me posted if you’re seriously thinking of attending. I know of a few online people who’ve already gotten tickets and hotel rooms 🙂
OK… I think that’s it for this time. Meeting was pretty basic this week. Remember to read Succubus Dreams for the next one, and be looking for those fairy tales.
See you all in town, or in cyberspace, on the 29th!
