I thought I would incite a few comments...

.
If I mentioned that about 5 months ago I tried to read Twighlight, but never finished because I didn't enjoy it.

Go ahead ladies. I can take it.

It's alright Katie. You Foutz girls are just too practical. I figured that out when your mom and Jane didn't love it either. I must just live in too much of a Fantasy world - or am dying to escape mine!

I just feel bad that you can't enjoy it as much as I do - love it, love it, love it!

What? You don't have patience for a book that features a slightly annoying heroin with few redeeming qualities and an author who likes to describe her characters in the same way over and over and over again? Thats weird...

I have admittedly never tried to read these books, but I still can't figure out what the big deal is with them. What makes them so amazing? Vampires? I don't get it. For the record I don't like Harry Potter either (the books that is, I've seen the movies).

WHAT?!! After I read the first one I was like...I have GOT to find me a vampire!

Kristin said...

It doesn't surprise me at all that you couldn't finish it (I mostly kept reading because I like Edward :). The main chick is seriously annoying. It's definitely something I would have liked much more when I was about 12.

Do you ever read Orson Scott Card? He's my current fav.

I LOVE that you don't like the books either! I refuse to read them, but you already know how I feel about it all.

PS- Kristin, my current English teacher is Orson Scott Card's sister-in-law. Are you jealous?

PPS- Katie, I had a horrible editing mistake on the last comment and could not stand looking at it, so I had to repost my comment.

Katie, I was waiting for you to finish the rest of that post. I was sure you were going to say that you gave it a second try and now you just love it! Its ok though, I forgive you.

I do not do vampires, werewolves and other weird sci-fi AT ALL! I don't even do Harry Potter, not the movies or the books. I walked out of Men in black, couldn't handle the nasty creatures! Sci-fi stuff is just weird to me and definitely not my thing! HOWEVER...I made it through all THREE books and I can honestly say they kept my attention and weren't too weird/bad! No I am not as obsessed as my friends, seriously they need help...BUT I did have a few "can't freaking put this book down" intense moments that I rather enjoyed...wish you could get through them all just to give a more honest opinion of them! I hope I can make it through the movie, that will be even worse and more weird. You should at least TRY to get through them katie...it's only fair to give us a better represented opinion...I'd love to hear what you think of them all. =)

Hi Katie. Found your blog through Jane's. Your girls are adorable. I liked (didn't LOVE) Stephenie Meyer's books, but I like most kid fantasy stuff.

If you want to read a really great Vampire themed novel (or just a great novel), try Elizabeth Kostova's "The Historian". She's an incredible writer.
