I do not understand this obsession over these books! I read the first book in the series and while I didn't hate it, it gave me no desire to read the rest.
Some people are absolutely fanatical about it! (I fear that I may be referring to some of you blog readers) I saw the movie with my sisters and I thought the casting was all wrong! I'm not hating on you Twilight freaks (lovers? what do you prefer?), it just didn't strike me the same. I'm sure some of you don't like Harry Potter (which I totally don't get, Harry is amazing!)
