    I was like this when I first read them but haven't had the chance to read much lately. I start my new job on the 29th and will have a bus journey there and back again so I will finally have time to get some reading done.
    First on my list - re-read twilight i think!

    I also quite like Landover - magic kingdom for sale, sold! by terry brooks I think it is.
    Nothing like Twilight, but still a really good read!

    I want to read them, my daughter has them all.
    Loved the films so far.
    I really enjoy reading, just don't seem to find the time unless on holiday!

    The books are FAR better than the films!
    I was quite disappointed with the films to be honest.

    thats usually the case with film adaptations though. Harry Potter misses loads out, PS I love you was a bit poor compared to the book....the list goes on and on! I think thats why i havent even seen the films yet :giggle: Refuse to watch twilight till i've read them!

    Oh yes, I agree, books are always better than the films.
    Two reasons, they can't get everything in the film and also, with books, you get lost in your own world, create the way you think the characters should be and form your own opinions of everything.
    I can get lost in a book, I really love them!

    So, if I enjoyed the films so much I will really really enjoy the books!

    Completely true but its worse when they completely ruin a film for the majority who have ready the book.

    what is also better is real books, ill be having none of the e-books business! :giggle:

    I agree the books are sooooo much better. In fact i didnt think that she portrayed Bella very well, as Bella in the book is totally in love with Edward but that didnt come over very well on screen.

    Has anyone read her novella "The short second life of Bree Tanner"?

    Not amazing but worth a read if you like the rest of them, it gives a good "second opinion type thing if you like.
