Twilight: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion by Mark Cotta Vaz

Now, if you’re around my age (I’m currently at the very start of my twenties) you may be completely brought back to an era of simplicity and beautiful nostalgia with this particular companion novel. For those who weren’t huge fans of the Twilight phenomenon, written by Stephanie Meyer, the entire saga follows a young woman, Isabella (who goes preferably by Bella) Swan who helplessly falls in love with a stunning, though emotionally tortured vampire named Edward who has been seventeen for, let’s just say, “a while.”

While this is not the novel itself, I saw this at my local thrift store and couldn’t part with it. Though the original movie came out in 2008, nearly 8 years ago, I wanted to revisit the modern romance that instilled so many warm, thrilling and exciting feelings in my youv teenage self. If you are a fan of the twilight saga, or perhaps just someone who is interested in the in’s and out’s of what goes on behind the scenes of a major motion picture, consider checking this one out. It includes a plethora of technical movie terms which, in addition to exploring one of my favorite novels one more time, taught me quite a piece or two about CGI special effects, visual effects, as well as the prominence of how weather really has so much to do with what you can and aren’t able to film!

Wonderfully done.
