The Host Fan launch!
The oh-so-awesome-very-secret project I've been working on is coming out of the closet! Visit...


Since they announced the movie, my girls (aka fellow mods) at the_host_novel and thehost_movie and I decided to make a website to the splendid book and upcoming movie. (And Meyer has said she envisions this story as a trilogy, so possibly two more books and maybe even two more movies!)

Whether you love or hate Twilight, I really recommend you read The Host. It is really so, so good and much better than any of the Twilight books. (Stephenie Meyer has said it's her favorite thing she's done and even she admits she thinks the writing is better than Twilight. And this was in her Oprah interview to promote New Moon, not The Host. Watch if you don't believe.)

Our site is only partially up at the moment, but there's tons to do so at least go look because I worked my butt off. Thanks. :)

That's very exciting! I'm sorry to admit I hadn't heard it was going to be a movie. I agree that it's much better written than the twilight books though.

Do you know what year it's going to be released?

Yay! I'm glad you're a fan too. :)

No idea, although the IMDB page says 2010. I think that's not set in stone because they'd really need to work fast to get it done by then since the director/screenplay writer is/was recently finishing a different movie (The Cross). Late 2010 though maybe?

I want to see it quite badly but I hope they take their time with it and make it good though, because this movie may not require all the SFX of the Twilight Saga, but it's much more difficult to relay to an audience.

PS - Love the icon!

well, i can't wait to see it whenever it comes out.

It really is so much better written than twilight, it's not even funny. And sadly most people who read twilight haven't read it D:

The site looks great so far! And I agree, even if people don't like Twilight, they should check out The Host - I found it a MUCH better, and more adult (and more cohesive and well written) book! I'm not sure how they'll pull off making it into a movie, but I can't wait :)
