Is it because some publisher liked the books enough to take em on? Is it because they are so popular? I really don't understand why so many people have to hate on her books or any book at all for that matter. Just because some didn't like the book doesn't mean its bad it just means it isn't their type of book. If anything giver her some credit. She wrote 4 and a half books based on a dream she had. Those books blew up and became popular. She has talent.
