Ummmm... Ew.

I'm not going to lie. I'm not really enjoying the first Twilight book thus far. Very very disturbing. I mean, the girl is making out with a weird, pasty white, ice cold guy... gross and creepy. I'm not sure that I can continue... Amber tells me to push through. We'll see. And yes, Carin, maybe you've left me for too long!

Uh oh. If you don't already love Edward, then you migh not enjoy the books. And hey, back off on the negative comments about our dearly loved Edward Cullen. Haha. ;)

My friend bragged about those books, so I loaded onto my Kindle before actually trying them. OMG--the writing is SO BAD. I got so distracted by the overabundance of adjectives that it was hard to figure out the storyline. To be fair, I am not at all interested in reading about vampires, but I could not/did not/will not get passed about 2/3 of the first book.
But I learned how to delete from my Kindle!

Oops, I meant past.

My friend Franki has forbidden me to read these or to allow my daughter to read them. They don't meet her literary standards & after reading your post, I'm glad I'm following her advice.

Phew. I thought we may have made a friendship error. Twilight? Can't stand it -- as a reader and a teacher of adolescent girls. Really? Give up your life, family, goals and brain for a boy? Hmmm.... I read the 1st one, though, just so I could have a reference point for my criticism. Two thumbs down from CJ.
