SPOILER WARNING!

i fell for all the hype, and read twilight on my way to disney world, new moon on my way home, and eclipse early last week.


so, i have been putting off posting about this, but i cant take it any longer. what did you guys think? i was SOOO aggrivated by the end. seriously, stephenie meyer, when you write a 500+ page book, cant you write about more than feelings? i mean, i was tortured the whole time i read it, wondering what would happen, and in the end, NOTHING HAPPENED!!! there were no plot twists or turns. i didnt have to read closely each chapter looking for some forshadowed event. it was like she had a picture of edward and bella, a picture of jacob, and then drew a line to them all fighting together and beating the victoria character - all that took more than 500pages?? nothing else happened!!! there was nothing i had to read into. i appreciate the fact it was written for a younger audience, but even the harry potter series had important little turns that happened in each chapter! nothing of the sort happened in new moon or eclipse. ok, i get it, edward and bella are in love. couldnt jacob have imprinted with angela or something? couldnt SOMETHING else of importance happen? right now, i have invested 3 days of my life to reading this "trilogy" and i am just frustrated. i think i am going back to jane austen.

I agree that there could have been some more plot twists and I'm kinda irritated that it just ended like that...i wanted so much more. BUT I did fall in love with the characters and even though it was pretty predictable I enjoyed reading about them (i like emotion) And I will read the next book and hopefully that will give me the rest of the story that I wanted to read about...I can't just stop reading before the story is over no matter how frustrating it may be

Oh great! You ruined it for me! I haven't begun reading any of her books yet, but I am about to purchase Twilight. So the third one isn't worth it?

I love that you love Fatasy football. My husband and I love March Madness and are big time College football fanatics. I am starting the famous book soon, so no comment yet. Your kids Emily are so cute! I love the haircut picture.

I have to ask are these the books about vampires? Someone told me about a good book that involved them and I can't remember who it was. Anyway just wondering about this series. It sounded familiar!

Ok. So I finally started Eclipse a week ago and took it nice and slow and enjoyed it. The story difinitely didn't go far enough for me either, BUT I still loved it! I love all the emotion and how detailed she wrote. I also loved all the history this one gave us. And I loved how this one was a bit more graphic...:)
