I love Twilight. I also love that people of ALL ages are reading it and falling in love. Like my 12 year old cousin. And my 45 year old aunt. Enjoy!

I read all four in quick succession to be ready to go see the movie... I felt kinda lame for doing so, but MAN! Addicting & awesome.

Twilight = where feminism goes to die

I/ve heard such mixed reviews. My favorite (w/ relation to the new movie) was Interview w/ a Vampire meets High School Musical..,.

and that was enough to make me not get involved!

Enjoy!

Hmmm...Must be some good book for all to forget one thing!

Wishing you Kelly, and Jerry, Allison and Toby, too, the Merriest of Christmases beyond any of your imaginations.

(And best holiday wishes to this "family" of fellow commenters , too!)

Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

uhhhh YES! Definitely read all 4 in about 2 1/2 weeks (one of those weeks was Thanksgiving break for teachers/students... we get the entire week off for Thanksgiving in Texas). ENJOY!!!! (25 y/o who borrowed her high school student's books... then my 51 y/o mom doing the same thing:)

I just finished the first one and I was surprised that is was much better than I thought it was going to be. When I finally put it down, I was just about craving to read more. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I heard that it's much better than the books. However, I watched the first season of True Blood on HBO, and I think that is much better. I can't wait for the boxed set to come out.

twilight sucks! i found the writing to be really immature and boring.

I thought your blog was really awesome...but now it just got even better! I read all 4 in 4 days. They're amazing!

crystal said...

Laura said...

....Seriously? The writing was so horrible I couldn't finish the first. Tweech her own I guess.

Ahhhhh I have to start them soon. I've forced myself to wait until after the holidays. I have friends who have read all 4 in less than a week. Enjoy your reading!

I refuse to start reading them. Not for any reason except I don't have time to be addicted to books. I'll admit, I was a Harry Potter addict : ) But I'm currently an English major, and I had to read 25 books last semester and god knows how many next. Maybe this summer!

Johanna said...

The books are pretty much amazing. My high school students got me hooked on them. I will warn you though that the second book is hard to get through (not as much action as the others). I haven't seen the movie yet, and I am not sure that I want to but we shall see. Have a Merry Xmas!!!

Your a writer!!! Thats the WORST book ever written! (not meaning its a badly written), but its such a bad storyline, and the plot is nearly decipherable after the first page!!!!!!! Such a bad book! (Not in my opinion, just obviously), but I must add it is quite addictive because of the twists... of the totally obvious plot... lol.

I didn't know you liked, "Twilight!" I haven't read it but I know it's everyone's top fave right now, especially with the movie out. Hmmm, I remember last year it was Harry Potter that you were so into. Am I right? ;o)

Well, happy reading!

I was so enamored by the book, I went out the next day and bought the rest of the series...I wonder if I - a 32 year old woman - could get away with going to see the movie without a teenager in tow?

My 27-year-old coworker/managing editor read all the books a couple months after I wrote an article about the release of the fourth book. I thought she was crazy, but I'm a Harry Potter dork so I thought it was plausible that they're actually decent. The coworker sped through them and when the movie came out the two of us went to see it opening night at midnight. We told our boss we'd be in late the next day. I enjoyed the movie so much that for Christmas I asked for the books so now I have the first one to start on.

And to the anonymous poster who said "You're a writer, how can you read that?" -- many reporters love cheesy stories. In fact many of us live and die for them. Harry Potter, Meg Cabot books, fluffy chick lit; it's all a getaway from the boring real world stuff we usually have to deal with. And since most of that stuff is "quick read" type of books, we can gobble them up in what little spare time we have.

I know!! Me too!!! I've already read Twilight, New Moon, and currently on Eclipse and Breaking Dawn is "in the mail". Let me know if you want to borrow them!! I don't know why, but I always liked vampire stuff.
