I just finished Twilight late last night. Two of my teenage sons had read it and loved it. They are anxiously awaiting book #4 (which we preordered over a month ago).

I really liked Twilight. I plan to finish the series this summer!

Enjoy your summer vacation. I'm a teacher too and can't wait for more reading time. Yeah!

I want to read Wicked really bad!

I read Twilight... the thing about it is that is completely designed to fit a teenager's supposed fantasy (i.e., dangerous, angsty, only YOU can understand him, vampire who is completely in love with you) so it's kind of annoying in a sense. If you can get past that, it's really good!

I read Twilight last weekend. LOVED it. Very suspenseful, intense, interesting conflict between eternal life/undead and humanity. Too much "I love you, I want you, I can't live with or without you" dialogue - boring. Now I REALLY want to read New Moon.

Currently, I'm reading Backwater by Joan Bauer.
