Twilight Saga

I'm having a bit of a slow week, blogging wise; the reading's getting done, but I'm falling down on the reviewing side of things. The problem is that this week I read Stephenie Meyer's New Moon and Eclipse... how do I write a review for books that practically everybody in the entire world (or at least the reading/blogging world) has already read and reviewed themselves?

Well I've decided to simply not.*

I liked the books, and enjoyed New Moon best of the three (haven't read Breaking Dawn yet). By now you've probably already made up your mind as to whether or not you're going to read the Twilight saga, and don't really need me to sway you either way.

Happy reading!


*I feel like such a cheater.

I would like to hear your opinions about the saga.

Don't feel like a cheater. I decided a long time ago on all my blogs that I can't compete when it comes to reviewing the latest books/movies/TV shows/games. In my case, I don't have the cash to buy new stuff right away so I can review it in a timely manner. I choose to believe that by reviewing older books, I am contributing to their long tail.

Serena - Aw, see, it's really hard to be a slacker when you go and say that! lol. Okay then, I'll review them after all, I'll write one when I get home from work today.

Dani - That's a good philosophy, and I tend to agree. As soon as a new book comes out, everyone's reviewing it and then that's all you ever read, I like to read reviews of older books.

Well, I'm probably one of the few people in the world that didn't like it. I wrote about it and Twilight on my blog: http://storytimewithtonya.blogspot.com/2008/11/new-moon.html

While I love the books, I decided not to review them, either. It's not that I don't have a lot to say about them! I guess I just find it hard to articulate why I like them so much -- especially when I know not everyone shares that sentiment. I know it's childish and silly of me, but it makes me feel upset when I see bad reviews about them! I'm generally open-minded, especially about books; it doesn't really bother me when other books I like get trashed. But I can't stand to see the Twilight books ripped up!
