    Before Breaking Dawn came out, I would have voted yes. Now, I would vote "It depends." Recently, I've been re-thinking my opinion on the series, so I can't answer strict yes and I can't answer a strict no.

    So I didn't vote. :p

    1/4 good vampire action 3/4 teen angst.
    voted no.
    I will see the movie though. Good director and choice of actors.
    Being a movie, hopefully it will have all the action that was in the book.

    Haven't read it, don't plan on reading it, and from what I've heard, don't want to read it.

    Yes. It has its problems just like any other series, especially those written for teenage girls, but on the whole it was very engaging.

    Yes, I thought it was good. Some angst and whining, but Harry did his share of whining as well.

    A very, very, very emphatic no.

    The Twilight Series is some of the worst writing I've ever read. Its just unbearably angsty and she has a thing about taking a 200 page idea and streching to 750 pages. I could go on...

    Okay, I voted. There are some things that I like about the series, there is something that I find addicting about her writing. s there is no half-and-half option on the poll and overall my problems with the series made me vote "no" as I would probably give someone looking to read the series cautionary advice.

    If it had stopped at the first book I would have said yes, but what started out as a great plot turned into a teen angst fest. And now all the girls in my grade (particularly the ones I can't stand) have read it and started gushing over it I really can't stand the series. I will see the first movie however (only because of Robert Pattison)

    I wish there was a "so-so" choice. ;) I enjoyed Twilight and Eclipse but reallllly did not like New Moon and Breaking Dawn. I feel the writing is overrated and there are so many typos (especially in the first book). IMHO the Harry Potter series will stand the test of time but the Twilight series is more the flavor of the week. ;) *waits for screaming fangirls*

    ;)

    Haven't read it, don't want to. Not my genre anyway, and from what I've heard, it doesn't sound very appealing.


    Yes, I've been ignoring the whims of the girls in my town.

    I heard about a Twilight something or another. But thanks to media, I now know what it is. A book...which has a movie coming out or something.
    So uh, third choice.
