First Sighting: New Moan

New Moan (The first book in the Twishite Saga series)
by Stephfordy Mayo
Heffa Lump is a self-centred seventeen-year-old who needs to grow up and get a life. Fortunately, the Spatula Academy of Fictional Excellence specializes in helping characters from kids' books cross over into adult fiction. Unfortunately, she's distracted from her attempts to leave adolescence behind when she meets Teddy Kelledy - an impossibly gorgeous boy who eats rare meat, is super-strong, and never goes out in daylight. Could he - just maybe - be a vampire? (Hint: totally.) Soon, Heffa finds herself harassed by supernatural forces on all sides: vampire goths peddling the deadly drug 'Emo' all over town, Jacko-worshipping zombies trying to eat her brains, and werewolves lurking in basements reading copies of Wolf Whistle. A fight is coming, and apparently she's involved...Will Heffa be able to narrate herself out of danger? Will Teddy learn that being with a girl doesn't always have to be about biting? And what will happen when the New Moan rises? "New Moan" is guaranteed to make any fan laugh out loud with its irreverent and clever take on this popular series, which is brilliantly on the nose. (Fantastic Fiction)

I was sooooo amused with the synopsis (heck, the title's already hilarious!). I think I'll still be amused with this even if I don't dislike the Twilight saga. Haha! I think this parody is even milder than what the bashers could come up with, so hopefully even Twilight fans can see the hilarity in it. Come on, so many already being made fun of in the synopsis hit the mark so much already. Haha!

I'm not sure if I'll bother to buy this though. I don't really like being reminded of a story I didn't appreciate much, even if it's just a parody of it. But I admit I could imagine myself laughing my a$$ off while reading it. Haha!


  1. Lol, the sypnosis really looks awesome and amusing.Specially to someone who doesn't like the saga lol. I have yet to read the original novels, I've only watched the first movie (someone made me do it).

  2. I was so excited by the synopsis that I bought the book and am now halfway through it. Rubbish! Constantly highlighting the same points it had already made in the synopsis. Not much more. The first sentence of the book is probably the most funny of the whole thing. All in all - a dissapointment. Only good thing is I bought it during sales, so not too much of a waste of money. :)

  3. i find this book awsome! i am loving it so far and i did find it very amusing that winnie the pooh was a drug dealer! it makes me and all my friends laugh so much that they are going to go out and buy their own coppies.

    WE LOVE TWILIGHT soooooo much. and this still makes us laugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

    I don't recommend the novels to you. I think the movie's more tolerable compare to them, for someone who hadn't been that fond of the movie.

    @ Aurelia
    It wasn't that different from the synopsis? It's a shame if that's the case . . . there's so many things to make fun of with this series. Haha!

    @ Alyssa
    I love people who enjoy even the parodies of the titles they love~ That's good to hear.
