Just so you know, I haven't read the Twilight series... yet. I only say YET because my dear hubby, knowing that I love vamps, decided to get me the series for Christmas. Andrew bless his little sparkly heart, I can't just NOT read it - because then he'd know. But I know enough about it that I won't find satisfaction from it because, let’s be honest... since when does a vamp only want to gaze longingly at his meal or potential mate? HA! Guess I'm used to Angel or Spike being snarky and aggressive.
I came across this, however, and I have to agree with King:
Stephen King On 'Twilight' Author: 'Stephenie Meyer Can't Write Worth A Darn' - Article in USA Weekend
I love King, he's just so damned twisted and I love how he plays with people's psyche. Plus, I really like JK Rowling - because she's a good writer, not necessarily because of Harry Potter.
Sorry Ms. Meyer - I like my vamps twisted and evil.
