Vampire Bites

Ok, gals (& guys?) I finally finished up my rather belated devouring of Breaking Dawn, and the verdict is...
I have to be honest...
One thumbs up--&, yes, one thumbs down
(I can hear you yelling now, but as someone once said, "honesty is the best policy," right? :)
What I liked:
  1. Bella kicked b*tt
  2. She didn't eat her dad
  3. She got to "keep" both her boys
  4. She's matured (no more whining!)
  5. But, above all, as always, our dear Edward :)

What I didn't:

  1. It all seemed to wrap up a tad too neatly
  2. The whole weird Jacob middle book thing
  3. That even weirder sci fi Rosemary's Baby thing (creepy gross!)

Still, it was grand to hang with the Cullen crew & friends again--can't beat that!

Your turn--time to comment away!

P.S. Have fun at school Tuesday! :)

Breaking News

Just a friendly update from your local frazzled teen librarian--I'm finally, finally almost done with Breaking Dawn, so we can dish soon. Also, I hope you all are enjoying these final weeks of summer. Rest up & enjoy a few fluffy reads before homework resumes (which, by the way, I am finally, finally finished with FOREVER!
Alas, I can no longer share in your pain.
Sorry (not!)

P.S. I'm also finally getting around to order some fresh goods--keep an eye on the newbie shelf!

I'm still here (just not reading quite yet!)

Greetings & Salutations, my readerly people!
Just wanted to let y'all know that Breaking Dawn has, at long last, finally made it into that old backpack of mine, & I aim to read it before the week's out.
Scouts honor! :)
Looking forward to lots of fantastical blog discussions--& a real lively chat when book group resumes next month...
