I Laughed...I Cried...
Seriously, this is quality YA lit. I felt some trepidation at first, because I can't stand the syrupy kind of writing you usually find in a lot of popular romance/vampire/youth fiction.
Meyer won me over after the first page. I read all three books in the series in less than a week. The story is gripping and original (quite a surprise considering the sheer volume of vampire-love fiction out there). Her writing is clear, concise, evocative, and entertaining--but never overdone or inauthentic.
I applaud her. And I can't WAIT until the next book comes out.
