Three things, okay?

One, King did not write Twilight--Stephenie Meyer wrote Twilight.

Two, don't double post.

And three, don't bump tons of old poll threads (or any old threads), all right?

I belong to the majority- it's SM. All the stuff that came out after Twilight is worse than the series itself. Impossible to find a good book in "Teenage Fiction"!

I actually like Paolini... 0.o

I went for Dan Brown. I read the Lost Symbol purely because I was home from a trip to Washington and was able to read descriptions of the city and go "OMG, I saw that!"... But once the initial excitement died down I got bored to breaking point. It was tediuos and hard to follow and the plot seemed kind of... Meandering, if that makes sense.
"These stories exist because sometimes we need to create real monsters to stand in for all the things we fear in our real lives."

How can you guys say that? I know Twilight has become this whole big thing for crazy, hormonal teenage girls, but that doesn't mean that the books are bad! I think that Stepheni Meyer wrote an amazing piece of literature. She even based the stories on classics like Pride and Prejudice, Romeo & Juliet, and Wuthering Heights.
"If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger: I should not seem a part of it."
- Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights, Ch. 9
