I just finished reading the atrocious Twilight series. I do not recommend them. At the risk of offending my blog followers, I will explain my reason for not liking the books. The first one started out decently (but nowhere near the literary genius of a series in a similar genre: Harry Potter), then got progressively worse with each subsequent novel.
Each time author Stephanie Meyer built up excitement toward a potentially important and/or dangerous event, she never came through with an equally-as-exciting conclusion. Quite a few times, the reader anticipated something major happening, and it didn't. It just didn't happen.
PLUS, some parts of the series got just plain creepy. You know what I'm talking about. Men falling in love with (excuse me, "imprinting upon") toddlers. ????? Can't handle it.
So, I am taking suggestions for what to read next. Please help me recover from Twilight's drain on my brain cells and free time. It's time for some quality literature!
