The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

Postby diamondlil » Sun August 31st, 2008, 12:11 am

There has been a lot of hype around recently about these books which are YA vampire fiction. With a movie of the first book due out in November, the hype is likely to only get bigger. The books so far in order are:

Twilight
New Moon
Eclipse
Breaking Dawn


There was supposed to be a book written that told of the events in the first book from the vampire hero's point of view (his name is Edward) but it is looking like that book which was to be called Midnight Sun is now going to be pulled because some early drafts of the first 12 chapters have been leaked onto the internet and then distributed around the place. More details on this can be found here

Just finished reading the Twilight Series! :)

That's really to bad that something like that happened. :( I have to admit that I did go and save Midnight Sun! :)

I've read Twilight and nothing else. My students are all over my case to read the other books, but they forget that they keep taking them out so I dont get a chance to read them. :D

How are you liking it, cookie? I just finished Breaking Dawn and thought it was good, some slow spots, but other wise good. :)

It's good - I'm reading very slowly though - so I'm frustrated with myself that I can't get stuck into it.

Sometimes the internet is a thing of Evil. How sad that she won't publish the book now, but I can understand why she is doing it. And it doesnt shock me that her female fans are angry.

i've read twilight, and stopped there.
i found it very compelling.

we've been discussing the midnight sun
leak over on the blue boards at verla kay's,
and it's truly sad. i wouldn't wish that
on any author.

i find her success story truly
fascinating.
