    I feel like I could've read the third book and been fine. Too many details! I hate Twilight, Edward, the whole story....BUT I really like vampire diaries. I just wish it was set in college!

    I liked the Twilight books when she finally got around to setting up something of a plot. The Volturi thing was way better than the love story. Unfortunately, the plot only showed up in about the last quarter of each book. The Grey books were even worse. It wasn't until the third book that the author finally got around to creating something other than longing looks and raging lust between characters.

    I'm reading the third book now. I started them to see what all the fuss was about and because Of the connection to WSU (go cougs!)
    I have to say that although the writing isn't the best, I was really glad there was a second book. I wanted to know what happened. But midway through the second book I started to get fed up with the "Ana defies Christian and he 'punnishes' her and she's anxious about it but secretly likes it. It seems a reoccurring theme in the story. I'm only on chapter 7 in the third book, and I hope that I don't have to read that scenario too many more times.

    Oh, and was it just me or did anyone else think that the first book was full of naughtiness while the second and (so far) the third has less?

    I just can't make myself read these books.

    Bad writing = fingernails on chalkboards.

    There are so many of the love scenes, I just started skipping them! They were all the same, and def not even close to what the hype suggested they would be. The story was better without the too long love scenes.

    I started doing that, too - especially in the first book.

    As did I. I figured either it tamed down or I got used to it!
