Default Do you like Twilight?

The title pretty much speaks for itself. Do you like the Twilight series? I'm mostly regarding the book series, which I believe are horribly written. I used to enjoy reading them, but after picking them up again recently, I realized how bad these books are.

There should be the option 'I have never read them due to skimming them in a bookstore and having to violently compress truckloads of chunder'.

Oh, and 'No because the author regards herself as better than Tolkien'.

The books were better compared to the movies. However, I have lost most interest after the Twilitards made it overrated.

They're okay if you want something different to read. They don't hold a candle to Harry Potter by any stretch of the imagination, but I've read far worse books (like 1984 and this one about this Mexican kid who died, became a ghost, and spent the whole book wandering around and nothing else.) I mostly hate the hype and the fact that you have to force yourseld to read half of Twilight and New Moon just so you can get to a good part.

I've never read any of them. But wait, there's Twilight movies? I mean, I wouldn't consider filming feces during defecation to be a movie...

That's an awfully nice rock you've been living under if it shielded you from that.

The series is boring and Bella and Edward each have all the personality of sparkly cardboard, but at this point the diehard an-Twis are actually dumber than the fans. I can safely say I would rather watch Twilight and snark about it to myself than have to sit through the painfully unfunny Vampires Suck again.

Regarding the books, I don't normally enjoy reading in general. The only books I've ever really liked so far were The Giver and Biocentrism. So missing out on them was easy.

Regarding the movies, I made a joke referring to them as shit.

First vote for yes? I feel really horrible now. )=

I honestly loved them. A little melodramatic, yes. They're not my favorite books, but I did enjoy reading them.

And to think, the original plan for the Twilight movies had Edward as a SWAT-team killing vampire commando.

No, but this isn't a no because hating Twilight is the bandwagon thing to do.

When the first book came out, a friend of mine was reading it. I'd heard it was written by somebody living in Arizona, and it was about vampires, so I decided to read it. I found it pretty dull, didn't like the idea of a mutual Human-Vampire relationship. Bella and Edward have nothing on Dracula and Mina.

Honestly, I would've said they're okay if it wasn't for all the god-awful hype, but now another mediocre author struck a gold mine praying on teenage fantasy. Now I can't even talk about Vampires and Werewolves without it turning into a Team Edward or Team Jacob argument. That's just not fun for me.

This.

I voted 'no,' even though I've never read the books. I don't really want to bother at all.

I have read all four books and I found them enjoyable. I understand that there are flaws in them but overall I did enjoy the books from start to end. The little relationship between Edward and Bella was interesting to watch and I found Jacob very funny.

I don't love the books nor am I as diehard as some fans but I like them.

I never cared about that series. In fact, I didn't know of it until there were noise of its criticism. However, from the sound of it, it appears that for such a popularity, it's unhealthy, kind of like junk food.

Thanks for reading.
