message 759: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine Cervik I'm not saying Stephenie Meyer is the best author in the world, but I didn't enjoy reading until I read her series. Now I'm trying all kinds of new books and found that I can actually enjoy reading.

Tracy Davis I like MY HUSBAND RAN OFF WITH THE NANNY AND GOD DO I MISS HER (amazon #6 fiction, humor out of 13,000 books) because it is very funny but also real. Portion of sales donated to The Retreat _ a shelter for abused women. Why does a husband sleep with a nanny and then the next nanny and then a three hundred pound nanny? Because her wife is so disorganized with 2 kids and a household he meant to destroy her. But that all happens right away and it gets very romantic and it is funny from the start.

Read Peeps, its amazing!


message 762: by Komal (new)

Komal Stephine Meyer understands the psychology of the teenage group- particularly girls! So she's liked more among the girl's community

Devy I say respect all reads. A good book no matter what it is can bring out the best in all people. A good book can help you relate when you need it most or simply help you escape when the world gets to heavy. Whether its the Twilight Saga or Candide a good book is a good book. Its all on what you need fed the most at the time.

message 776: by Della (new)

Della Scott I think I did it wrong. I voted for books that I'd already read and liked, for the benefit of others who were thinking of reading them.

I just joined Goodreads and am still learning how to use it.

Summer Time For anyone who enjoys poetry- I just read a poetry book titled "Angst for the Memories". It was really great. Very versatile and very metaphorical in a beautiful way. I definitely reccomend it. It's by an author named Rachel Daigh. I hadn't heard of her before and I think it said it was her first book. I really hope to see more work from her. The book is definitely worth checking out. Very easily relatable. Has anyone else read this book?

To, David
I'm sorry but i'm very offended by your comment. I have read the twilight series and hate it (Maybe cause i'm a guy IDK) but my mom and 4 sisters love them. I like alot of books from the teen selection (Young adult) and the adult but i hate to kill a mocking bird. I like anne rice "Interview with a Vampire" and "The Vampire Lestat" along with alot of other adult books like "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" in fact I liked that whole triogy.
The whole point of me saying all this is that i think it is mean to think all teens are that way or that the reason for this is teens (like i said my mom liked them) Thats just stereotypical.
How would you like it if i blamed the reason for some of the books up there that i don't like on all the older people on this site?
Don't blame teens, look at everyone on this site with a neutrality to it all as though everyone were some universal age. Respect the differences in taste other's have. Try some of these books that the "Teens" are comenting on because of the passion it sparks in them, maybe it will spark something in yourself.
I know i'm picky to (I hate westerns) but i have read them (Maybe you've read the twilight books to IDK) still I don't say anything such as well you're old like my parents age that was populare then but this is now.
Thats what i feel like you're saying. If you read through all this thanks :)
Thats about everythng i have to say,
Yours truly,
Luke

Your English skills leave much to be desired. How is it that you can read and yet are unable to write?

Maddie Just because Twilight is at the top of the list, doesn't mean it's a bad list. This list is open to all ages, and though it isn't an amazing book in terms of literary value, it is highly entertaining, addictive, as well as being an easy read. I think I knocked all 4 books over in 3 days. Maybe less. Have I read better? Of course I have. So have most people. That said, it still doesn't decrease my love for the books, and if I want an easy read and I'm bored... I know Twilight ensures entertainment. My recommendations for this list however consist of Mockingjay, Cosmopolis, This Is Where I Leave You, The Perks of Being a Wall Flower, and The Night Watch. All 5 books I'm eager to read once I've completed Catching Fire, and On The Road.

While I do believe this is a good book, don't you think the weird names for the different worlds/species kind of takes away from the book. The names are weird, and it doesn't feel like they should be named what they are. Glad you're enjoying it though, it's a great story line. I just wish SM was a little more realistic in naming things.

You go, Luke. The point of social media, and user reviews, is to free us from the "these people like this" mentality of publishers, reviewers, and chainstore policy makers. Read what calls to you, no matter what anyone else says. I appreciate what To Kill a Mockingbird says as a social/historical message, but I can't say I enjoyed it.
As my plug for the day, if you like fantasy/romance, and brilliant writing, consider The Ballad of Young Tam Lin. Tam Lin must choose between his lover, the Queen of Elfland, and the young and (formerly) innocent Lady Janet Dunbar, the unmarried mother of his unborn baby. Sensual without being graphic, touching, thought-provoking, and gripping.

When you are ready, check out Amazon's "Create Space." None of the economic traps of conventional self-publishing.

KareB Good literature doesn't have to be difficult to read. What Stephenie Meyer has done for literature is awesome. Because of her books, she has inspired many young readers to read. I work in a high school and because of the Twilight series there are many students that actually enjoy reading now because FINALLY an author created a fun world. I believe that some of the criticism on here is due to the movies, not the books. The books paint a powerful fantasy world with just enough of realism to keep readers turning the pages. That doesn't sound like poor writing, that sounds inspiring. Twilight is a phenom for a reason. To criticize is basically calling millions of young readers idiots. I applaud any author that can touch millions of readers and inspire them to read on. This is coming from a fan of authors from William Shakespeare to Edgar Alan Poe and YES to Stepehenie Meyer. All authors have their own unique voice. That's what it's about.
