    I'm only on the third book and I'm absolutely obsessed with the series as well. I love her style of writing and Bell and Edward's relationship is so intense ... it's just amazing ...

    I've missed having a good vamp series to read since Anne Rice went all weird and non-vampy ... *sigh*
    If you want a great vamp series you should read Laurell K. Hamiltons Anita Blake series. Now I will warn you there is ALOT and I mean alot of sex in her books. But if you don't mind they are great. I'd call them semi fluff but the story line is amazing!!

        I gotta say I like the cover. I think she did keeping it simple black and red. No fangs. I think fangs throw people off vamp books.

          My best friend raved about these books and she hates to read...I was not that inspired to read them after she said they are geared for young adults, but after reading this thread, I think I'll give them a try...

            I completely agree about feeling a bit lost once the books were done. They sucked me in so completely that when I was finished, all the books I've read after, they just haven't done it for me. There was something really special about this series that has captured me. I also read the Harry Potter books and totally loved that series too :) I had never read young adult books as an adult before and I'm happy that I've enjoyed them all so much!

              Hey girls do any of you want to sell your series to me?? My mom just started reading them and is totally into them. I don't want to wait for her to finish them to read them. So, I figured maybe someone on here would be willing to sell. Let me know :) If not I'll hit up ebay.

                Havn't read them yet, but I live about 20 mintues from Forks, which is where the author is from...and where the book is set. People in our area are totally obsessed with the books, and most of them are adults. There have been tons of tour groups through to the town for book signings and tours.....so funny. They are on my list to read this winter since my MIL has them all. Kind of fun knowing they were written and set so close to home :)

                    I'm a little late to this thread, but I love the whole series. I read The Host as well and really liked it. My FSIL is reading them too. I am surprised that she likes them since she reads less fluffy books. But she enjoyed them as a nice escape.

                      I just bought the host on monday. I haven't started b/c I have 6 books on my shelf. I bought my niece a book and had to read it first. But I'll read it within the next week. I hope it's good.
