The Host was ok for me, a good read but it didn't hold the magic that twilight did.

i wish midnight sun would come out and make me love the series again. breaking dawn broke my heart. it was like the series got progressively worse (for me) as it went on. so having twilight and midnight sun together would be nice for me

I still say that the series should have ended after Twilight. I honestly didn't think there needed to be a sequel. If I hadn't known about New Moon when I read Twilight, I wouldn't have expected there to even be one.

I agree Novel!! it was only when i looked up the author did i see the sequel, which i didn't like (if i'm honest) and eclipse (i REALLY didn't like) and well BD (you know how i feel)

its like if jane austen (not that i'm comparing but you know what i mean) decided to do a sequel for P&P, sometimes things need to be left alone.

e.g. hunger games - i can understand that being a sequel due to the hints about goverment control etc. and breaking the rules (although could have been done earlier in novel)

I actually thought Eclipse was the best in the series, it brought so much together. Although, it could have done without the triangle of Edward and Jacob, but even then it was a relief to see she saw more than just Edward. She didn't seem quite so co-dependent in that book. Twilight was good, but she annoyed the heck out of me. Midnight Sun, if published, would be very interesting!

So, although yahoo is reporting as news that NM has been halted due to a plagarism charge against SM - Lex says its a hoax.

but i wonder is the hoax - a] the plagarism charge
b] NM halted as aresult

That's exactly what I thought, too!

Okay, my turn to share my opinions. Yay!

Honestly, I read Twilight and I loved it. Even though I had previously read most of the Harry Potter series (all of it wasn't out yet. I think I was missing the 6th and 7th books) and realized that SM was way inferior to JK Rowling's writing and sophistication, but I didn't mind. I still liked the simple storyline and the love and the cuteness and the vampirism (not a word? Yes? Maybe?), though I thought it was kind of odd how vampires just sparkle. I mean, Dracula didn't sparkle in the sun, it just bothered him a little. I prefer that, rather than sparkling or just melting in the sun, personally. For the most part I liked it, though NM really made me sad. It was like extreme Linkin Park "Crawling In My Skin" only in 500 pages. I rolled my eyes until the Volturi came, then I liked it again. Eclipse was only "eh" for me, but BD I only liked certain parts. I think, if anything, it should have been just the trilogy. BD went, to me, in a completely different direction (not climactic, mind you) that didn't interest me at all. :/ I personally thought the series would have the most pride in just Twilight, but then she wouldn't have been as successful.

The thing that bothers me THE MOST out of everything about how Edward is a Danny Stu (Well, he isn't a Mary Sue because he isn't a girl, duh!). It's just...UGH! Although I loved him and his maturity and everything else, I just wanted him to have a flaw or too. Bella is kind of a Mary Sue, but at least she's a spazz and is bad at sports and isn't super attractive. Geez, I don't think a vampire would be perfect, either. He's not a robot. But, that's just me. I still aspire to have her amount of success and wish the best with the whole Midnight Sun and Russet Noon thing.

Russet Noon - i wouldn't even mention that in same sentence with the other books. I'm not the hugest twilight fan now or anything, but when you see people who don't like twilight standing up for SM over it, you know that its a big deal.

writing an unofficial sequel fanfic and trying to sell it as a 'tribute' to make a profit(and breaking every law known to man) is terrible insulting to person who created the original series

I agree with all the other stuff you've said moon. i had such hopes that BD would pull a twilight but i found it very very disappointing.

I am too. I mean, Little Brown isn't a small little publishing company. They're extremely popular! Aren't they afraid of losing money?

I feel terrible for SM. I would be heart broken if I was her.

I'm way late to the party here, but that comic nearly made me spit all over my screen.

I thought having Twilight and Midnight Sun both out and together would have been enough.

I didn't like BD because it reminded me too much of the sitcoms where they throw in a baby to make things interesting, but having them forced to endure eighteen years of awful... doesn't happen. Instead, the child grows at lightning speed. The birth scene alone ruined it for me. Plus, at the end, every thing was wrapped up all tidy. Some books were not meant to end in a tidy present of perfection.

Bah! Midnight Sun was my favorite one and now she'll never finish it.

I liked the movie, though... especially with the commentary on the dvd. The commentary was the best part.

Wendy - TW and midnight sun (whenever its realised) our my favourite too. NM and EC were like fillers and i was hoping BD would be excellent. . .

My friend who just recently read the books pinned down what was wrong with BD perfectly,

she said it was like Stephenie Meyer was given a list of what all the fans wanted - and checked them off one by one

edward and bella get married - check

no main characters die - check

everyone is happy - check

Bella doesn't have to give up the chance for a baby and has one - check

jacob imprints and is happy - check

werewolves - check

volturi - check

charlie finds out but is ok with it - check

etc etc.

IMHO she could have done soooo much with this story. The pregnancy pulled me completely out of the TW world - there was no more suspension of belief.
