Perhaps I should be ashamed of myself for obsessing over Twilight the way I did, but I'm not going to lie about liking it. Perhaps the series would not appeal to the taste of bourgeois and elitists, who might feel that reading Twilight somehow compromise their immense intellects.

I'm not a bourgeois nor an elitist, I'm a simple person who reads simply for pleasure. I just like what I like.

If this one gets published I would definitely buy it. Though the main reason behind it would be totally pointless you might say. I just need to see the complete series arrange neatly together on my shelf!

Bri Oh my goodness, thank you for your review. I'm a 28-year-old mother of a 2-year-old and I am hooked on Twilight. I love what you said about Twilight possibly not appealing to the tastes of bourgeois and elitists. Hilarious! I so agree with you on this. I hate that the books and the films and the actresses and actors get ripped just because this story doesn't sit well with the groups of people you mentioned. I feel like some people harp on the series just to hate something so popular. Thank you!

Tippy Jackson "I feel like some people harp on the series just to hate something so popular." Yup. That's exactly it. I've even heard people explicitly state as much.

Thanks for your review. And yes, like what you like, with absolutely no shame. I know exactly what you mean and I had a hard time trying to justify liking this to my very educated friends. Frankly, you just have to let go. Liking this book is beyond the realm of logic. There are many flaws, but it is really imaginative and unique and being able to pick it apart does not make one any smarter. I could pick out all of the flaws as well-but what's the point? You lose the fun.
