I vaguely remember when Twilight came out that it was popular. People thought it was really good. Never read it, but liked the cover!
I’m thinking I should investigate it, not because I really WANT to, but because some people think it’s full of Mary Sueish soppiness and stupid women in danger always rescued by saintly vampires, and also because it’s going to come out as a movie at the end of the year. Okay, cross that out — I actually DO want to read the book, primarily because of this vehemently scathing review on Amazon.com. Reviewer concludes:
Hey vampires are awesome, but not so much when they’re turned into superhero supermodels who wear way too much glitter body lotion.
Will says, “I’m a vampire, and I like glitter, and there’s NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. :p”
I have a weakness for poorly written books. They show me what NOT to do.
P.S. I am interested to read Companions of the Night by Vivian Vande Velde.
