I really liked the books!  I also was extremely skeptical…but the books are actually totally entertaining.

I am depressed that they turned these books into COMPLETELY S*&%TTY MOVIES!!  They are just such a let down. Yell

I just read the first one, but I was really addicted to the Harry Potter books so I know what you mean. I feel sad we don’t get to visit their world anymore. And there are so many amazing things about the wizarding world. But at the same time, there is more danger and destruction. And chores, too. It’s not like Bella doesn’t sometimes have to do the laundry too, or load the dishwasher, she might not just write about it, right? Plus it rains all the time there. Wouldn’t you rather be on a beach??

Anyway, you might not have unlimited wealth or youth but you have the protection and love of your FH! Is that not all you need?

My Fiance refuses to read them again because he went through the same thing. I do it with many different series so i’m used to it. I don’t think it’s sad. I just think we have to focus on what we have that they don’t…. like chocolate. haha.

@ApplePie:

I’m right there with you, girl! Have you ever heard of fanfiction.net? It is where people can go and write their own versions/interpretations or add onto books. I have to admit I have read quite a few of Twilight fanfiction, and some of them are extremely well written! If you don’t want Twilight to end, I seriously suggest you check this sight out! PM me if you want to check it out and have any other questions about it. I’m such a dork lol

@ApplePie: He really did. He was miserable for weeks cause he thought that there was no way that real life could ever live up to this perfect amazing world that they lived in and had. He wont read them at all.

I understand it but I prefer to think of my life as it’s own book and just because it hasn’t reached it’s ending yet (and hopefully wont for many many years) doesn’t mean it wont turn out just as good =P

self-proclaimed Twihard here and proud of it!!!!!!  Not so depressed though and i will tell you why!

First off, i am not AT ALL ashamed, embarassed about the fact that i LOVE the books.  And i LOVE the movies. I take the movies for what they are and never expected them to reach the quality of the books, so i am okay with that. and let’s face it, Taylor Lautner is hot.

So, i don’t think you have to worry, because you are sooooo not alone.  And i totally get what you mean about wishing you were in their world.  That is after all the point of books/movies. an escape!  I do also love Edward and Jacob. I could never pick a team.  Well i am guess i am like Bella, in the end, i always knew I loved Edward, but Jacob made it hard!

But here is why i am not depressed, because i think i was when i first finished them.  And i spread them out. I held off reading the 4th book for almost a year because i didn’t want it to end!  But, what i love about the Twilght books is that when i was done, i just read them again!  You think its addictive and hard to put down the first time you are reading it?  It is almost as enjoyable the second and third time!  I even have them all on audiobooks and they are a great way to pass time listening to them when cleaning and doing chores, driving in traffic, exercising.  I listen to a lot of audiobooks, not just these ones! But when i run out of other audiobooks to listen to, i just go back to Twilight!

Oh, and please don’t be so ashamed for being a fan!  I just roll my eyes at people who think they are too cool/above liking the Twilght books.  They can be as snobby as they want about it. And in the meantime, i am happily enjoying them to fullest!

I haven’t read the books, I hated the first movie. I think it was the stupidest thing ever and and refuse to watch it again. It’s beyond cheesy with the super slow shots of Edwards pale ass walking towards Bella, or him staring at her in the Chemistry class. But the last two are awesome! Every single time New moon & Eclipse comes on, I have to watch them. Again, and again. Sometimes twice in day. I freaking loveee them and I can’t wait for Breaking Dawn. Urghhh… like really? I’m thirty-freaking-nine years old LOL. 

Team Jacob!!! Cause he’s way hotter.

Ok I am chiming in here. I read the books before the first movie ever came out. I read them in one weekend. So yes, I am a fast reader. The first movie was crap. It was wooden and cheesy and if there were no books to support it would have never gone any further. The rest are getting better as time goes on.

As for the teams. In the books I am strictly Team Edward. The Edward in the books is a million times better than the one in the movies. As for the movies, I think Taylor is yummy and I am 32 so yes he is jail bait….lol. I don’t get the Robert thing, but that is just me. I think his face is shaped wierd.

I am not ashamed to admit that I have read and re-read the books several times. My fav book is Breaking Dawn. I have read that one more than the others. I have always liked supernatural books and have many series that I enjoy

@StormyRose: all I can say is ditto to exactly everything you said!

I thought the films were rubbish, and the books were…okay. the first three,yeah they kept me reading but when edward left,I had to skip that part because reading about bella being depressed,made me so depressed (is that weird lol)But breaking dawn is the only one I will read over and over again. I dread to see the film, I just know theyre going to get reneesme all wrong lol!

My sister was obssessed with these books and being that I really enjoy reading and everyone seemed to be in love with them I jumped right in. I got half way through the 3rd book before I gave up. I simply didn’t like the books…no worries though I’m not going to start bashing them 🙂

That said OP I understand how it is to read a book and just fall in love with the story. I read a 4 book series from Jude Deveraux when I was like 17 and was obsessed myself. I’ve probably re-read the last book in the series 30 times. It gets better!
