Stephenie Meyers has created a capturing web that gets inside your mind and you can hear the thoughts of the characters even when you are not reading , it mesmerizes you. I have not seen the movie but I can bet that its not half as interesting as the books. I am sure of that because the written words hook you up in their tangles no images or characters can...read it I highly recommend it.

I was told about how much I would like these books on and on by many many people. I do not know if this brought up my expectations and this made me disappointed or if it is just my lack in apathy towards whining oh woe is me people/characters. I did read all the books with a book club and wasn't thrilled at all. My cousin was instant I watch the movies with her and though not bad the same annoyances with the main characters arose. I just can't like that sorta whining.

I love the Twilight series! I just got done reading the third book. I just have to get breaking dawn. I had never heard of them before there was all they hype of the first movie coming out. I'm not one to jump on the bandwagon, but after awhile I figured I'd check them out. I was going to rent the movies but I love to read so I figured I'd check the books first. I don't think I've ever read anything that kept me so involved the way those books have. I read the second one in one day. I could not put it down. I'd put it down to make supper and felt like I was missing something while I was gone lol. I'll hopefully pick up Breaking Dawn this weekend and then I'll rent the movies. I hate to see the series end.

I have to honestly say that I was underwhelmed by the series. The first book I found to be repetitive and slow-moving, and the last book was very hard to finish. The two in the middle were pretty fast-paced and interesting. I think I found the whole premise a bit silly--and the idea of a high-school girl ending her life at such a young age was kind of disturbing. But maybe I had heard so much hype about the book that I couldn't help but be disappointed.

These books got me... I started reading them after Harry potter finished and they got me captured as much they the harry potter ones did. Although I still prefer the harry potter ones. The movies aren't nearly as good as the books, as in the books you get to know what bella is thinking and the movies can't show that.

I also enjoyed the Twilight series, which was highly weird of me since I usually don't enjoy books with any of the following: hype, vampires, and love triangles. I enjoyed the movie too, not as much as the books, but I'm a book person rather than a film person when it comes down to it.

I also read the book 2 years ago. I never let go of it as far as I can remember. I ever read the last book twice. When I read it the first time, I felt like I didnt read all of it so I decided to read it again and felt satisfied after that.

I am just starting to read the twilight book today. I was at my local library and saw the two books Twilight and New Moon. These are books that people donated so they arent actually in the system so we can borrow them for as long as we want. I didnt want someone to get them before me so I borrowed both of them. I cant wait to see how I like them. I watched the movie and I loved it.
