Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Even though I've read all the Harry Potter books and really loved them, I'm not very familiar with the Young Adult genre. I wanted to see what all the ruckus was about about this series since its been highly recommended by so many "tweens" to teens.

Twilight was an interesting enough book, an imaginative take on vampire lore. Perhaps if I was part of the demographic it's aimed at, I would have enjoyed it more. As it stands, it has just a bit more teen angst than I enjoy, and a few too many flowery declarations of eternal love. I probably would have liked it much more when I was a teen, however, romantic type stories have never appealed to me. I'm doubtful I'll pick up the next book in the series to read. I'm not sure I care enough to see where the story goes.
