    I don't agree with you about Bella. I think she's in love with him because of his dazzling effect of her... so mostly looks.

    Jasper will always be my favourite vampire. I love his story and I love his love for/with Alice. Alice is my second favourite... hehe.

    Nox you keep surprising me! I didn't know she was planning a Renesmee series? I want her to finish Midnight Sun :(

    Question to anyone: Are the books really that good? Everyone I've talked to has said that they're great, but i really refuse to believe them.

    She WAS supposed to start writing them right after she was done with Twilight.
    I think the first book was supposed to come out midsummer '09.
    But then she wrote the Host, the she tried to write Midnight Sun, but somebody posted a part of it on the internet and she got mad and gave up on it...so who knows what will happen with Renesmee series.

    Depends on your tastes.
    It's a love story above all, I think it's technically Urban Fantasy, one of the few that are not marked Adult.
    But yes, they are quite good.

    Alright, I'm seriously thinking of reading them, because my sister does own all the books.

    I do have winter break coming up to read them..

    Read them, I did before all this crazy hype so I enjoyed the expiriance more imo
    But don't let it put you off, they are still good even if every American scene girl has an Edward sticker on a...part of her body.

    Did you read what she wrote of Midnight Sun? I thought it was really good, even though I already knew the story.

    Also, did you read Host? I own it, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet.


    DO IT

    That's the reason i haven't read them as of yet. It seems like its just a bunch of crazy fan-girls. But one of my friends has actually read them- one you'd never expect to read something like that, and he enjoyed them, so i was like what the hell? But i still didn't trust him at all.

    No, I didn't want to start something I may never finish, it would just increse my anticipation.

    Didn't read the Host either, next to Kim Harrison, Karen Chance, Kelly Armstrong and the lot I didn't think SM would be even able to get close to them, so I've read them instead. ^_^

    Fair enough. I haven't read for enjoyment in years so I thought I would keep giving SM a my attention since she's the one who got me out of my slump.

    I didn't expect you to like them, but I thought I'd let it go :p
    My mom LOVED New Moon because she is obsessed with Jacob. I liked Eclipse the best because it's then that we find out all about Jasper!

    Join the club, I'm dieing for something that can grasp my attention, I'm getting dangerously close to finishing all the Discworlds, I don't know what then.
    I've read everything else that's a real "grip you by the neck and won't let go" like His Dark Materials, Abhorsen, Artemis Fowl, HP, LOTR, Barteamious, Twilight etc.
    And now, there's nothing *sob*

    ASoIaF - got put off by the hint of pedophilia.

    Malazan- nope, I shall look into it, thank you.

    Forgotten Realms - Did the Dark Elf, Icewind is on my to-do list, I wasen't in a mood for any soul searching lately.

    Lot's of things you don't know about me.

    I don't like Jacob, that kiss was forced, I don't like that.

    I know, and I often assume things about people... and until now i haven't talked to any guys that like Twilight.

    That's how I felt about the kiss too. I was really aggravated that my mother took his side! Though, Bella did lead Jacob on pretty hardcore.
