    "Believe what you've heard: the Twilight series is truly fantastic! Breaking Dawn is such an exciting read, full of adventure and romance as only Meyer can write it. Bella and Edward's story is not a simple one but I adore seeing how their commitment to each other means they can get through anything together. I was breathless and will never stop enjoying this epic tale of true and everlasting love."

    "Although The Gargoyle spent a number of weeks at the top of the New York Times Bestseller list, it's not a great read. It relies on curious plot twists and unpredictable events to draw attention away from the lackluster writing."

    "From Dead to Worse continues the fascinating tale of Sookie as her true identity is revealed to both us the readers and her own self. This books is a great read that explores the strength with which characters react to grief and danger. There's a lot a of humor among the fear of the setting, which I really appreciate, and the dialogue is witty and sharp. I love getting deep into the history of the South and vampires in this book and series."

    "It's a bit of a wild ride, and I'm still not sure if I'd call it an enjoyable one. Still, Sedaris gave me plenty to think about during these sometimes meandering essays of his, so I guess he achieved his goal in the end."

    "Michelle Meads books are hit or miss. This one was quite enjoyable but I had higher hopes. Nice recap of the books and the illustrations are good. It is nice to see this series in picture form, but the story is very complexand leaves a lot out at the same time! So if you haven't read the actual book, I don't think you'd understand some of it. That being said these graphic novels are fun reads!"

    "This is a very great book that is part of an iconic and interesting series. It may be one of the best books released in the year 2008, but would have serious competition with The Hunger Games original novel that came out in the same year. Either way it's a very good book and is very imaginative."
