    Really liked the Twilight books but hated the movies. I love the Harry Potter movies but have not read the books yet. Its on my reading list for 2013.

    Thank heavens Harry Potter is winning. This is just my opinion, so I really don’t want any Twi-hate, but I hate Twilight and don’t understand why Potter is constantly compared. First off, they are not even remotely similar in plot. Potter is about a boy wizard, and the many different facets of his life becoming a man, including the build up to an actual war. It’s also an intricately written series, with some deep twists and turns. Twilight is a romance between vampires, minus plot or character development, or any actual romance. The two really have nothing to do with each other. 

    Facepalm. I just saw this thread is a year old.

    @icetea:  I can’t believe you admitted to disliking Harry Potter and lived to tell the tale! 😉

    I love love love HP. I was there from almost the beginning and loved every minute of the journey. Whenever a new book came out, I’d read all of the others in the weeks preceding to get the full impact. I saw just about every movie at midnight the day it came out. Just the other day, Fiance and I were talking about how bummed we were that it’s all over and has been for a while. (Despite all of the crap they sell in stores to make it seem still alive in a zombie-esque way.)

    Twilight…I read all of the books and admit to liking them in a mindless sort of way, but I kinda hated all of the characters and repeatedly “told” Bella that I wanted to slap the shiz out of her. Out loud. In public. Now, I still re-read the HP books and will continue to do so through out my life. I never owned Twilight, never will, and never want to read those books again.

    I read all the twilight books and didn’t hate them, but there is no comparison to Harry potter in my mind.  HP all the way

    I’m not sure how you can compare the two but Harry Potter all the way. I’ve been reading HP for more then have my life now since I was 12 and waited in line for the last 4. I would never do that for a Stephanie Meyers book. Stand in line for hours just to read 300 pages all about how obsessed belle is about Edward… Ew I’ll pass.
