I really didn't want to like this book. "Oh, another Harry Potter... another Twilight". The latest must-read. Ho hum. Of course, sometimes books really are must-reads. And now, I must read book 2...

(but you still can't make me read Twilight!

Cecily I take it that you've resisted the temptation to succumb to book 2 (or did you just not want to sully your virtual shelves)? ;)

Derek (Guilty of thoughtcrime) I haven't so much resisted, as failed to ever get book two off the bottom of my to-read list. I guess it's gone from "must" read to "may" read.

Cecily Life's too short to waste it on bad books. ;)

Derek (Guilty of thoughtcrime) I certainly agree with that - but I didn't find this to be a bad book. I probably rated it higher than it deserved because I found it a better book than I expected, but I definitely enjoyed it.

Cecily Well, yes, "bad" is a bit strong for this (and I'm very much not the target market), but nevertheless, life is too short to waste on books one doesn't really enjoy.
