Twilight?

Some of us who are frequent visitors to Floor 22 (the blog of Jess and Todd) have been talking about reading Twilight (etc) for book club. Any takers? I haven't read it, though did have the ARC, started it, put the seed in Julie's brain that she needed to read it, then never followed through myself. Matthew's store, along with many others, I'm sure, is doing a big midnight release. Meyer's books and movie stuff are everywhere... but I'm learning that, even though I feel like the only person alive who hasn't read them, I'm not alone. Thoughts?

I'm in the middle of it right now, and I'd love to discuss it sometime in the future, if you guys want to read it too!

I've just officially arranged to borrow it from my sister. I'm in!

rebecca said...

I'll be reading it in about a month, for a project, but I can't read it sooner than that... would it be too much to ask that we start the discussion at the end of August rather than now? I'd be grateful for the chance to participate. :)

I finished it last weekend and am looking forward to some discussion ... just say when!

Amanda said...

i'll pluck my copy off the shelf and get reading. i'm with rebecca--let's maybe give everyone a few weeks to read twilight, then start discussing. yay!

kristin said...

it will certainly take me some time to read, too -- i have a number of books ahead of it on my list -- so this works for me. yippee!

I would be happy to!

(Also, I'm all new here, recently invited in by Rebecca and sent an invite by Amanda. What's the protocol? House rules? Should I introduce myself somewhere?)

Amanda said...

deborah, i made a post, as i'm sure you saw, to introduce yourself. as far as protocol, there isn't much! post about anything you want, YA or otherwise. if you read through older posts, you'll see some posts about book club picks, things we're reading, advice, suggestions, interesting links, current topics in children's lit, etc. the more posts, the better, i say!

I would love to read them too-- I keep feeling as though I Ought To, but I really can't bring myself to independently. I figure that's exactly why I have you guys-- the perfect partners in crime.

Cool - a book discussion for something I just finished reading. I feel so ahead of the curve (finally)! I'd love to hear others' thoughts on Twilight (or any of the later books). I just finished reading The Host on vacation - although it's billed as an "adult" book, I'm curious if any others here have read it and what you thought of it.
