I haven't read any of the novels in that series.
Have not, and after having read the synopsis for each of the books, I have less desire to read them then I did before.
haven't read them
I like them just fine, though some were better than others.
I voted 'no' but technically I've never read them, because I could never get through the beginning of the first book.
Couldn't stand the writing style, and I've never been one for romance novels, teen or otherwise.
I love them.
(Although Breaking Dawn was a huge disappointment for me, I've come to terms with it now)
And uh.....Stephenie was spelled wrong.
Haven't read it.
Haven't read it. Probably won't ever.
Have only just started to read 'em, but yes.
Yes...except for the fact that Bella is a bit of a wimp and the second book was slow and boring.
Personally, I don't care much for the vampire genre. I find the writing to be borderline juvenile and the plot sort of pointless. To me, this isn't really sci-fi. This doesn't belong with Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke.
If there was a "OK-ish" option, I would chosen that. So, I didn't vote...
Really, the only reason I read the series is because I wanted to see for myself why so many girls were gushing over it...I stopped reading after Eclipse, and started reading again for some strange reason
Truthfully, I think the series was a little overrated...I mean, I bet I could probably write romance better than Stephanie Meyer...
I love the Twilight series, but I really wish that she did some things differently in Breaking Dawn such as making Jacob imprint on Renesmee when he was just starting to establish a friendly relationship with Leah. Ah well, there is always fanfiction.
All I know is, on every poster Edward looks like he wants to kill me...
I like what I've read so far with the first book. It's not as enthralling as I assumed it would be, but it's a good read.
No, it souds like a lame rip off of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, with Edward being a crappy version of Angel.
i read a little of it and was so appalled by the writing i couldn't get past the first page. and considering i'll give a book at least a hundred to get good usually that's some pretty damn bad writing. it makes rowling look like a great writer, and that takes a lot of work.
I haven't read it and don't plan on it. But I know people who love them.
I haven't read it, nor wish to.
Yes, I love them! Although Breaking Dawn did let me down, I figure that the first book is so great that it makes up for it.
World of Darkness > World of Twilight
Caine, Theo Bell, Sasha Vikos, Beckett, Hardetstat, Lucita, Fatima, etc etc = Win
Edward and his ilk= not so much
I did try though, I read the first two books before giving up and resigning to the fact that they were never going to live up to my expectations of what Vampires should be like.
I went for No.
They were good I suppose, but didn't grip me like Harry Potter did.
Mind you, I've read far far far worse.
Do I like it? Yes. It's a very entertaining series that really sucks you in.
Do I think it's good? Hell no.
