Okay. I am sure this has been hosted somewhere, but a quick search didn't show anything current in the blogosphere. Let me know if you know of somewhere. But I am not making it a hop or anything, so hopefully not stepping on any toes.
Twilight. I know, I know. There are so many opinions, some good, some bad. But I loved it. The books are what really got me back into reading (I used to read occasionally, with Harry Potter, Lurlene McDaniel, and even earlier the Babysitters Club, and Thoroughbred series being some of my go -to books.)
I really loved the storytelling and the characters, and the romance. It all made me have that drive to read more and find out what happened next. It also led me to blogging, because I found some awesome blogs that had lists of books to read after Twilight, and though I dealt with Post-Awesome-Book-Depression because the Twilight series gave me all the feels, eventually I found others that tickled my fancy like Vampire Academy, Mortal Instruments, the Minder series, and Iron Fey.
I recently watched the movies- all five over the weekend and it just gave me those feelings all over again. Excitement, connection with characters, Edward who I wanted for my book boyfriend, etc.
My questions to you:
Have you not read Twilight? If not, why not? If so, did you like it? Are you obsessed like me?
Have you seen the movies?
Which do you like best? Why?
Do you like the books but not the movies or the reverse?
Are there any books that got you into blogging or reading after long slump?
Books recs that give you all the feels and you have the fondest memories of?
