I haven't read the books, but I watch the tv show Vampire Diaries (and Secret Circle). I love me some Twilight movies. She was writing a new book, but it was leaked on-line, which made her angry.

I read until book 3 of the Immortal Series. Liked the first book...after that I thought it was all cheese and drama. Same with the House of Night books, so much drama you wonder how the main characters don't suffer some kind of nervous breakdown.

Yeh, Midnight Sun, I liked the manuscript a lot. She should have had the full book out by now, even with the delay...

Never read the TVD books, but I love the show. Actually, the first few episodes for season 1 was boring as heck, but it picked up fast and it's pretty awesome.

I heard the show doesn't really follow the books though. Like Elena is suppose to be a blond, Caroline doesn't get turned etc. (also heard the TV series is better than the books?)

As for The Twilight Saga books, they were okay.. kinda boring to be honest but the 4th book was pretty amazing.

Don't like the movies though. I don't get what the big deal is with the actor that plays Edward Cullen. Please don't stone me.

Have you guys ever read The Southern Vampire Mysteries about a girl named Sookie? It's very good. SOO much better than the show True Blood. Definitely a must read.

And if you really like science fiction/ futuristic type books Uglies/Pretties/Specials and Extras by Scott Westerfeld is really really good. This was actually the first book I read back in middle school (for a school project) that got me into reading and introduced me to borders book store - memories

My opinion, is, and always will be, that Harry Potter is the best book series that has ever existed and will ever exist. I think reading them should be a requirement for everyone. Honestly, I'm not a big Twilight fan, yes, I have read the books, and I will commend Stephanie Meyer for succeeding in writing a book that plants little worms in your head that make your mind crazy about it, but it's only a temporary thing, once I finished the series, I looked back and thought, wow, those weren't very good. Harry Potter, on the other hand, will never stop fasinating me. It has a deep complex plot, with characters that you devote your whole heart to, and villians who you feel the deepest sympathy for. I love Harry Potter, call me a nerd, I don't care, but the characters, the plot, and the entire world the book creates has given me the greatest escape from life I could have imagined, while still teaching me life lessons.

I agree with you on Harry Potter, fascinating

What about Dan Brown's books? I think they're awesome.

I read and watched the Twilight saga a long time ago. I loved the books and found the movies not so good. I thought the books needed a better adaptation. Then, I started finding Twilight boring, I moved on and read Before I die by Jenny Downham, the Immortal series (I loved these -- that was what got me into spiritual stuff), and the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie. I was a little fed up with romance stories, to be honest, so I kinda read that last one purely because I was fascinated by the science fiction parts.

That's all I have concerning young adult books.
