Atm, cause I change so much, my favorite book is Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. No, not the others in the series, just Twilight. Breaking Dawn... TT_TT Worst. Book. EVER.
Kaylee: Wash, tell me I'm pretty.
Wash: If I were unwed, I would take you up in a manly fashion.
Kaylee: 'Cause I'm pretty?
Wash: 'Cause your pretty.

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today

I haven't read it yet.

Is it that bad, really?


I liked Eclipse, personally. New Moon was good, too.

O_O

I LOVE YOU.

Breaking Dawn was like reading badly written Fanfiction. Bella gets preggerz, which, is wtf? And... ugh. It's bad.

Eclipse was okay, I didn't like the whole triangle part. New Moon kicked ass.

Yay...I didn't know if anyone else would like those. I listed the series on my list on the previous page. IMO the first 3 were fantastic all for different reasons....Breaking Dawn was written by someone who wanted everything to end in nice, neat little package all tied up with a bow, but I swear it was never edited. Tons of plot holes and questions left unanswered (at least in my mind). Weird, weird stuff. It's worth reading, but def. sub par compared to the rest of the series.

Looking forward to the movie, but I saw the pics of the actors and they are not what I had in mind at all. It will be interesting.

Mmhmm. Robert Patterson isn't exactly what I had in mind, but he works. Alice and Emmett are the best suited.

Yeah.. if you really wanna find out what happens, read Breaking Dawn, but expect a bunch of crap.

What? You have to be kidding me.

Also: I, too, was disappointed with the actor they cast for Edward.

So true. So true. I'm re-reading it for the second time to try to figure out the plot holes I thought were there were perhaps overlooked by me. It was supposed to be the last book, but it so left room for a 5th book. It's just dissapointing. I think she was on crack when she wrote it..which is an internet rumor I read which was pretty funny.

"BYU graduate, Mormon mother of 3, and Bestselling author admits she was on Hallucinagenics while writing Breaking Dawn" (crack just isn't enough to explain the plot).

This'll hit the headlines so soon... that book was so stupid. Betting she was probably turned on or something by all the bloody smex scenes. ><

So.. am I the only teenaged female out there that hasn't read the twilight series?

My favourite book would be 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill. It's a bunch of short stories most with something to do with ghosts, but not really horror.
Look! A new sig.

That series tanked after book 4.

Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual.
