I read the first one and the second one.

The first one seemed too dry. Nothing really major happens, in my opinion. I mean, she finds out he's a vampire, and that's about it.

The ending was totally tacked on.
The best person ever.  She should have won the Peace Prize.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

I know a little about the Twilight books from one female friend who is really into normal vampire stuff and hates the series, and from quizzing another girl who I am free to make fun of as much as I want.  I've really had to hold my tongue, because to me the books sound rather silly, but I don't want to make most of the girls I know who like the books angry at me.

The books are written for young teen girls, like age 14/15. It's not adult material but she writes about feelings that a lot of girls have and as sappy it sounds, they can relate. I considered it light reading, it was interesting enough that I finished the book. I don't really care about the vampire part though.

Yeah, that's the thing, all these 'girls' I don't want to make angry at me are in their 20's.

Lulz it's happened again.
Apparently, every bookstore manager in Egypt thinks that all teenagers of both sexes love twilight.
Wtf.

So so true :'(
As soon as it started getting into 'Divine Mission/Save the Children'...
The ending was a big meh.

i dont remember the title but it was a book about this girl and her sick hyperintelligent brother who travelled through space to bring light to planets... it was so ridiculous bringing in alot of christian propaganda in here and there, and the main plot was awful...

also i didnt like inkheart by cornelia funke, my uncle gave it to me, as it was hyped for a while... it was simply childish and girly, and also a product of the big harrypotter-lookalike-bandwagon...
OK, both of you die and let us know what happens.

Was the first book you're talking about A Wrinkle in Time?  I liked that one, but then I read it in elementary school and didn't quite catch everything.

It may or may not be stupid, it's been too long for me to say.  I liked it, but to each his own.

Anyone who doesn't like A Wrinkle In Time clearly has no knowledge of literature whatosever.
