Whether you love it or hate it, most everyone has read Twilight, the sparkly vamp themed love story penned by the then unknown housewife, Stephenie Meyers.
We are definitely not a part of the Twi-haters camp here— in fact Vee is known to be just a teensy bit crazy when it comes to professing her all-out love for this series. And though I have some criticisms (and make fun of the characters ALOT), I also totally love these books because they’re fun and enjoyable and because I refuse to over-analyze them like all the other naysayers.
However you feel, there’s no denying that Twilight has opened the floodgates to the world of YA for many young adult fans and without these books, there just might not have been some of the great YA books we have today. Twilight has gotten people back into reading and showed the world that YA is a genre with a huge, limitless market.
So why all the Twilight talk? Because we’re participating in a re-read hosted by Ginger at GReads! Now, we’re not getting all crazy and like, putting up posters of Edward Cullen or anything, but we are totally excited to read it again and discuss it with our book peeps. Each week we’ll read 5 chapters and discuss five predetermined questions until the book is finished (again). Check back with us every Monday to see our progress!
This week: Chapters 1-5
