Mary Todd (marytodd) | 924 comments A note about the Twilight series:

I was curious...I work in a middle school and wondered about the books.

Bought one, read it in 2 days. Bought the rest and read all of them (@2400 pages) in less than a week. They kept me up into the wee hours. Also, I found myself almost ripping the pages to get them turned!

I don't forsee me joining the 'Twilight cult', at 56 I'm not into cults much anymore, but they certainly were entertaining literature...good job, Stephanie Meyer.

Mary Todd (marytodd) | 924 comments DRUM ROLL PLEASE...

#50
The Time Traveler's Wife

I was disappointed in the end...I thought it kind of fizzled out, however, it there really is no end, I guess there really can't be a BIG FINISH.

Pretty fine book, especially for some one's first! Extremely complicated. Her mind must be something!
