I just read an interview with Steven King where he said that Stephenie Meyer "can't write worth a darn." I'm sure she's crying herself to sleep, on top of a pile of money.

Yeah, she is laughing all the way to the bank. The books might not be the deepest or intricate of writings, but they sure are quick and entertaining to pass the time riding public transportation! I'm interested to see the first movie and see how well it matches up to the book.

I haven't yet had the chance to read these, but I think I might have to given the number of people I've heard talking about them recently.

I finished all four books!! I finished the fourth one in the shortest amount of time. In my opinion the fourth one was the best!
What do you think?

I really like this article! I am 17 and It is really cool to hear that an adult likes the Twilight series! I haven't read the books yet, but I have seen all the movies thus far and I have enjoyed them a lot.

I write for a blog (RadicalParenting.com) where teen’s give advice to parents and write about issues from the kid’s perspective. Vanessa Van Petten, Radical Parenting’s founder, wrote an article on 5 lessons that teens should NOT take from Twilight. It may provide some interesting insight, you should check it out: http://www.radicalparenting.com/2009/11/30/real-life-lessons-teens-shoul...
