    Okay, I have to say that I picked this book up partly due to all the hype (and partly because it's involved two of my favorite genres)... I mean, so many people had recommended it to me and I finally got sick of hearing about it, so I picked it up and read it... or as least tried to. ...

    Actual rating: 1.5 stars. Believe it or not, there are actually a few books that are worse than Twilight. Ok, funny story. I was sitting on my couch with my husband last night finishing up Twilight. I slammed the book shut and began rubbing my temples. Then, my husband goes, "So y...

    It turns out we don't need Dr. John Gray to tell us that men are from Transylvania and women are from Venus. We just need to read Stephenie Meyer books. For example, from this book we learn that the millions of women who have wolfed down the Twilight series (pun intended) want men who:...

    I really enjoy lively details. There's nothing better than knowing an author has really thought about her characters and situations, and come up with some surprising and delightful detail that makes the whole reading experience fuller. Lively details, you understand -- pointless detail...

    I hate this book. I will probably end up reading the rest of them, because if I don't, people that love this thing will think they can convert me if I just keep reading. (ETA (Jan. 2013): Never even remotely bothered to finish the series.) In short: the writing mechanics are atrocio...

    my name is bella. bella swan. here's what stephenie didn't tell you. it's super-duper-important. on the morning after it rained, it was rainy outside and i frowned at it being so rainy all the time. i chuckled to myself, darn weather! i stared at the rain outside, which is where the...

    I actually had to give this book three separate reviews by three sides of my personality. My three-star rating is the median of the three: Review 1, by My Inner Fifteen Year Old Girl (5 stars): Bella is smart, funny, well-read, pretty and yet misunderstood by most of her peers (jus...

    Save your time: here's the entirety of Twilight in 20 dialogue snippets & a wiggedy-wack intermission. First 200 pages: "I like you, Edward!" "You shouldn't! I'm dangerous!" "I like you, Edward!" "But I'm dangerous!" Next 50 pages: "I'm a vampire!" "I like you, Edward!"...

    Let me give you an idea of how much my opinion of this book changed at different stages of reading. When I was about a third of the way through, I was so into it that I immediately put my name on the library reservations list for the sequel, and wishlisted every edition on BookMooch. N...

    Oh my. This book, to me, is like chocolate: a delicious, sinful, addictive indulgence which you convince yourself has beneficial qualities (zinc, calcium, keeps me quiet at that time of the month...) in order to justify your addiction. By "beneficial qualities", I mean that it's rea...

    Welcome to Part II of the Vampire Compatibility Test (VCT). Before we continue, let's briefly racap Part I of the VCT. Your score in Part I should have given you a good idea of how critically you judge vampire fiction, placing you in either "Group A" or "Group B" based on overall ...

    Call me crazy, but Twilight wasn't that bad. Well, sure, it's bad, but it's not 1-star bad. The sequels were atrocious, sure, but the first book wasn't the worst crap I've ever read. What I suspect most of us hate about Twilight isn't the book itself, but the legion of rabid, terri...

    Reread in 2015! I forgot how much I loved this book. No, it's not the best written book, but it is incredibly entertaining to read and it has so many wonderful memories attached to it. I probably won't reread the rest of the series anytime in the immediate future, but I hope to some...

    Twilight is lame and stupid. I think everyone knows that the characters are essentially the ones who make up the book. It?s through them that the plot is developed, the conflicts are carried, the climax is revealed, stuff like that. And when you?re writing in a first person POV,...

    Where do I start with this? I don't know about you, but I was hyped when this book came out. Anything involving Vampires or Wolves....I want to read it. I read this again a couple of weeks ago and because I'm going to start reviewing more books (even though I'm not very good at i...

    there are so many problems with this book that i can't even begin to address them all. but i will say this, 'twilight' is probably one of the worst, if not THE worst, books i've ever read. the writing is amateurish at best [cliches, stereotypes, purple prose--how anyone can applaud mey...

    Since this book has already been reviewed from hell to high water, I thought that I could treat you all to what this whole book (and small part of New Moon, as well) was in a simple little gif nutshell. Enjoy, all: And that's pretty much it. ...

    Ok... I know that I'm going to offend a lot of people with this review, but I feel that I have to be honest about this. There are quite a few things that bother me about this book, I will only list the top 5 here: 1) Bella - She is the exact character that I do NOT want my daughters...

    I'm tired of people ripping this book to pieces and secretely devouring it. I don't believe you for a second that you didn't enjoy it if you happened to have ratings and long rants about the following books. Accept it! Stephanie Meyer kept you reading her very long books! And you ar...

    I got so tired of receiving Twilight questions on the Never-Ending Quiz that I went out and bought a copy. It's about as good as I had expected, but I have already managed to answer a few questions correctly. An anecdote which I at least found amusing. Shortly after buying it, I was...

    Since, according to the news, the sun is about to set on the Twilight movie franchise (because this stuff is apparently news-worthy), I will take this opportunity to share my favorite Twilight-bashing resources with you, my friends. * But wait, you say! Shouldn't I take some time...

    Beware of spoilers! This review is more like a review of all the books. You know, this is one book that I was aching to write a review on. I don't know now. You know those books that are just so horrible that you want to go on and on about how horrible they were, but you don't w...

    This book is featured on this week's Throwback Thursday. You can see my full review @ https://readrantrockandroll.com/2017/... I could read this book over and over again. After seeing mixed reviews on it and reading that many people complained about the writing and characters, I b...

    Reviewed for THC Reviews I have to admit that I haven't read a great deal of young adult literature during my adult life, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect from Twilight. There was also a great deal of hype surrounding this book, which can sometimes mean a really great book and ot...

    I loved this book. There. I said it. In fact, I loved the whole series. What can I say? It was a totally unbelievable paranormal love story filled with way too much drama and teenage angst. And I loved it. Why? The series reminds me of "fair food". You know, the food you buy whe...

    WHY? WHY did I allow myself to be a part of my life like I allowed the movies? The writing was awful, Bella was a mess and stupid, Edward is still the weirdo pale dude who freaks me out because of how he acted/acts around Bella, and the romance was the worst paranormal romance I've eve...

    When you're looking for a novel that has no plot, no common sense, jibber-jabber about pointless love, how hot someone is, and the climax thrown together three-thirds of the book, Twilight takes the cake! I don't even know what made me "unconditionally and irrevocably in love" with it ...

    Okay, I have to say that I picked this book up partly due to all the hype (and partly because it's involved two of my favorite genres)... I mean, so many people had recommended it to me and I finally got sick of hearing about it, so I picked it up and read it... or as least tried to. ...

    Actual rating: 1.5 stars. Believe it or not, there are actually a few books that are worse than Twilight. Ok, funny story. I was sitting on my couch with my husband last night finishing up Twilight. I slammed the book shut and began rubbing my temples. Then, my husband goes, "So y...

    It turns out we don't need Dr. John Gray to tell us that men are from Transylvania and women are from Venus. We just need to read Stephenie Meyer books. For example, from this book we learn that the millions of women who have wolfed down the Twilight series (pun intended) want men who:...

    I really enjoy lively details. There's nothing better than knowing an author has really thought about her characters and situations, and come up with some surprising and delightful detail that makes the whole reading experience fuller. Lively details, you understand -- pointless detail...

    I hate this book. I will probably end up reading the rest of them, because if I don't, people that love this thing will think they can convert me if I just keep reading. (ETA (Jan. 2013): Never even remotely bothered to finish the series.) In short: the writing mechanics are atrocio...

    my name is bella. bella swan. here's what stephenie didn't tell you. it's super-duper-important. on the morning after it rained, it was rainy outside and i frowned at it being so rainy all the time. i chuckled to myself, darn weather! i stared at the rain outside, which is where the...

    I actually had to give this book three separate reviews by three sides of my personality. My three-star rating is the median of the three: Review 1, by My Inner Fifteen Year Old Girl (5 stars): Bella is smart, funny, well-read, pretty and yet misunderstood by most of her peers (jus...

    Words need not be said. Anything Comic ...

    Save your time: here's the entirety of Twilight in 20 dialogue snippets & a wiggedy-wack intermission. First 200 pages: "I like you, Edward!" "You shouldn't! I'm dangerous!" "I like you, Edward!" "But I'm dangerous!" Next 50 pages: "I'm a vampire!" "I like you, Edward!"...

    Let me give you an idea of how much my opinion of this book changed at different stages of reading. When I was about a third of the way through, I was so into it that I immediately put my name on the library reservations list for the sequel, and wishlisted every edition on BookMooch. N...

    Oh my. This book, to me, is like chocolate: a delicious, sinful, addictive indulgence which you convince yourself has beneficial qualities (zinc, calcium, keeps me quiet at that time of the month...) in order to justify your addiction. By "beneficial qualities", I mean that it's rea...

    Welcome to Part II of the Vampire Compatibility Test (VCT). Before we continue, let's briefly racap Part I of the VCT. Your score in Part I should have given you a good idea of how critically you judge vampire fiction, placing you in either "Group A" or "Group B" based on overall ...

    ... That is all. ...

    spoiler alert: he's a vampire!!! has anyone heard any press on this book yet?? i think that once the teens hear about it, the author will be quite successful. definite cinematic potential here. ................................................................................ pop ...

    Call me crazy, but Twilight wasn't that bad. Well, sure, it's bad, but it's not 1-star bad. The sequels were atrocious, sure, but the first book wasn't the worst crap I've ever read. What I suspect most of us hate about Twilight isn't the book itself, but the legion of rabid, terri...

    Reread in 2015! I forgot how much I loved this book. No, it's not the best written book, but it is incredibly entertaining to read and it has so many wonderful memories attached to it. I probably won't reread the rest of the series anytime in the immediate future, but I hope to some...

    Twilight is lame and stupid. I think everyone knows that the characters are essentially the ones who make up the book. It?s through them that the plot is developed, the conflicts are carried, the climax is revealed, stuff like that. And when you?re writing in a first person POV,...

    Where do I start with this? I don't know about you, but I was hyped when this book came out. Anything involving Vampires or Wolves....I want to read it. I read this again a couple of weeks ago and because I'm going to start reviewing more books (even though I'm not very good at i...

    there are so many problems with this book that i can't even begin to address them all. but i will say this, 'twilight' is probably one of the worst, if not THE worst, books i've ever read. the writing is amateurish at best [cliches, stereotypes, purple prose--how anyone can applaud mey...

    Since this book has already been reviewed from hell to high water, I thought that I could treat you all to what this whole book (and small part of New Moon, as well) was in a simple little gif nutshell. Enjoy, all: And that's pretty much it. ...

    Ok... I know that I'm going to offend a lot of people with this review, but I feel that I have to be honest about this. There are quite a few things that bother me about this book, I will only list the top 5 here: 1) Bella - She is the exact character that I do NOT want my daughters...

    I'm tired of people ripping this book to pieces and secretely devouring it. I don't believe you for a second that you didn't enjoy it if you happened to have ratings and long rants about the following books. Accept it! Stephanie Meyer kept you reading her very long books! And you ar...

    I got so tired of receiving Twilight questions on the Never-Ending Quiz that I went out and bought a copy. It's about as good as I had expected, but I have already managed to answer a few questions correctly. An anecdote which I at least found amusing. Shortly after buying it, I was...

    Since, according to the news, the sun is about to set on the Twilight movie franchise (because this stuff is apparently news-worthy), I will take this opportunity to share my favorite Twilight-bashing resources with you, my friends. * But wait, you say! Shouldn't I take some time...

    Beware of spoilers! This review is more like a review of all the books. You know, this is one book that I was aching to write a review on. I don't know now. You know those books that are just so horrible that you want to go on and on about how horrible they were, but you don't w...

    This book is featured on this week's Throwback Thursday. You can see my full review @ https://readrantrockandroll.com/2017/... I could read this book over and over again. After seeing mixed reviews on it and reading that many people complained about the writing and characters, I b...

    Reviewed for THC Reviews I have to admit that I haven't read a great deal of young adult literature during my adult life, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect from Twilight. There was also a great deal of hype surrounding this book, which can sometimes mean a really great book and ot...

    I actually had to give this book three separate reviews by three sides of my personality. My three-star rating is the median of the three: Review 1, by My Inner Fifteen Year Old Girl (5 stars): Bella is smart, funny, well-read, pretty and yet misunderstood by most of her peers (jus...

    Save your time: here's the entirety of Twilight in 20 dialogue snippets & a wiggedy-wack intermission. First 200 pages: "I like you, Edward!" "You shouldn't! I'm dangerous!" "I like you, Edward!" "But I'm dangerous!" Next 50 pages: "I'm a vampire!" "I like you, Edward!"...

    Oh my. This book, to me, is like chocolate: a delicious, sinful, addictive indulgence which you convince yourself has beneficial qualities (zinc, calcium, keeps me quiet at that time of the month...) in order to justify your addiction. By "beneficial qualities", I mean that it's rea...

    Welcome to Part II of the Vampire Compatibility Test (VCT). Before we continue, let's briefly racap Part I of the VCT. Your score in Part I should have given you a good idea of how critically you judge vampire fiction, placing you in either "Group A" or "Group B" based on overall ...

    Call me crazy, but Twilight wasn't that bad. Well, sure, it's bad, but it's not 1-star bad. The sequels were atrocious, sure, but the first book wasn't the worst crap I've ever read. What I suspect most of us hate about Twilight isn't the book itself, but the legion of rabid, terri...

    Reread in 2015! I forgot how much I loved this book. No, it's not the best written book, but it is incredibly entertaining to read and it has so many wonderful memories attached to it. I probably won't reread the rest of the series anytime in the immediate future, but I hope to some...

    Twilight is lame and stupid. I think everyone knows that the characters are essentially the ones who make up the book. It?s through them that the plot is developed, the conflicts are carried, the climax is revealed, stuff like that. And when you?re writing in a first person POV,...

    there are so many problems with this book that i can't even begin to address them all. but i will say this, 'twilight' is probably one of the worst, if not THE worst, books i've ever read. the writing is amateurish at best [cliches, stereotypes, purple prose--how anyone can applaud mey...

    Ok... I know that I'm going to offend a lot of people with this review, but I feel that I have to be honest about this. There are quite a few things that bother me about this book, I will only list the top 5 here: 1) Bella - She is the exact character that I do NOT want my daughters...

    I'm tired of people ripping this book to pieces and secretely devouring it. I don't believe you for a second that you didn't enjoy it if you happened to have ratings and long rants about the following books. Accept it! Stephanie Meyer kept you reading her very long books! And you ar...

    I got so tired of receiving Twilight questions on the Never-Ending Quiz that I went out and bought a copy. It's about as good as I had expected, but I have already managed to answer a few questions correctly. An anecdote which I at least found amusing. Shortly after buying it, I was...

    Beware of spoilers! This review is more like a review of all the books. You know, this is one book that I was aching to write a review on. I don't know now. You know those books that are just so horrible that you want to go on and on about how horrible they were, but you don't w...

    This book is featured on this week's Throwback Thursday. You can see my full review @ https://readrantrockandroll.com/2017/... I could read this book over and over again. After seeing mixed reviews on it and reading that many people complained about the writing and characters, I b...

    Reviewed for THC Reviews I have to admit that I haven't read a great deal of young adult literature during my adult life, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect from Twilight. There was also a great deal of hype surrounding this book, which can sometimes mean a really great book and ot...

    I loved this book. There. I said it. In fact, I loved the whole series. What can I say? It was a totally unbelievable paranormal love story filled with way too much drama and teenage angst. And I loved it. Why? The series reminds me of "fair food". You know, the food you buy whe...

    Okay, I have to say that I picked this book up partly due to all the hype (and partly because it's involved two of my favorite genres)... I mean, so many people had recommended it to me and I finally got sick of hearing about it, so I picked it up and read it... or as least tried to. ...

    Actual rating: 1.5 stars. Believe it or not, there are actually a few books that are worse than Twilight. Ok, funny story. I was sitting on my couch with my husband last night finishing up Twilight. I slammed the book shut and began rubbing my temples. Then, my husband goes, "So y...

    It turns out we don't need Dr. John Gray to tell us that men are from Transylvania and women are from Venus. We just need to read Stephenie Meyer books. For example, from this book we learn that the millions of women who have wolfed down the Twilight series (pun intended) want men who:...

    I really enjoy lively details. There's nothing better than knowing an author has really thought about her characters and situations, and come up with some surprising and delightful detail that makes the whole reading experience fuller. Lively details, you understand -- pointless detail...

    I hate this book. I will probably end up reading the rest of them, because if I don't, people that love this thing will think they can convert me if I just keep reading. (ETA (Jan. 2013): Never even remotely bothered to finish the series.) In short: the writing mechanics are atrocio...

    I actually had to give this book three separate reviews by three sides of my personality. My three-star rating is the median of the three: Review 1, by My Inner Fifteen Year Old Girl (5 stars): Bella is smart, funny, well-read, pretty and yet misunderstood by most of her peers (jus...
