Happy Holidays from Bill Condon

Yesterday, on Christmas Eve, Bill Condon tweeted a holiday gift for Twilight fans, much like he did at Thanksgiving.

I love that there are four stockings — Charlie, Bella, Edward, and a small one for Renesmee!

 

From all of us at Novel Novice Twilight, we hope you have a happy and safe holiday and New Year’s.

Twilight Pumpkins

I realize Halloween has long since come and gone, but I promised to share this year’s Twilight Pumpkins and just realized I never did!

Having a new baby in the house made it difficult to do a lot of carving this year, so I only have a couple:

Happy Eclipse DVD Release Day!

Eclipse comes out on DVD today in the United States!  As I understand it, some countries have already gotten their DVDs (lucky!).

Did you decide which version you’re getting?  Are you getting more than one?  In case you missed it the first time, check out our Eclipse DVD Guide and make sure you know your options.

Did you buy the Exclusive Borders sets Twilight and New Moon?  If you want Eclipse to match, look for the Target Collector’s Edition.

What are you getting? Did you go to a midnight release party last night?
