Books That Suck Month: Day Thirty-One: The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

Last, but not least: Twilight. It's arguably gotten the most hype as a vampire book for teens, and the release of the fourth book, Breaking Dawn, has prompted bookstores to host midnight release parties, something they haven't done wince the release of the Harry Potter books.
You'd pretty much have to live under a rock to NOT know what this series is about, so rather than giveyou some reviews, I'm just going to voice my opinon on the series.
I think the first book is the best by far. I remember reading it for the first time and going, "Whoa!" The setting, emotions, and action all work together to give you that gut feeling that occurs only ever so often when you know you've found a really good book.
I am looking forward to the release, although I can't say I am going insane like some are, counting down the hours and minuted (right after I write that, I remembered the down and to the left...hm). But what about you? How do you feel about the series and the release of Breaking Dawn? Let me know what you think!
P.S. Are you a little vampired out? I know I am. I'll get my copy of Twilight Saturday morning and read it, but then I plan to dive into some nice, non blood drinking reads.

I'm going at midnight. I also went for 2 Harry Potter releases. I'm excited about the book but I guess why I go is to experience the whole thing with everyone. It's so awesome to me seeing tons of people all excited about the same thing. And who knows if many midnight releases will happen anymore, I thought Harry Potter 7 was sure to be the last!

I have yet to read this series, though I will get around to it eventually. Great blog post- I enjoyed reading your thoughts on the saga. :)
