I'm with T - body glitter and lack of pointy teeth would put me off the story . . . ;)
Just someone please tell me if the werewolf people actually transformed from human to werebeast? Because frankly, the vampires without pointy teeth were an issue for me in the first movie. And their body glitter. And the fact that sunlight didnt hurt them. And given immortality, the chose to stay perpetually in highschool. LOL! ;D
Ok, I found someone who let me borrow the first book in this series. (And seriously, we don't already have a thread going for these books?) I know Ginafish has already read the whole published series, and Majinjc has talked about reading them. I'm starting the first book this evening and figured a thread wouldn't be a bad idea. So....if anyone else has read them, feel free to post. Just give a warning before spoilers so I can avert my eyes. ;D
Ginafish said:Apparently, for the most part, the adult females who have read the books seem to be just fine with them. LOL! I used my free movie ticket (Regal Club Card Reward) to see New Moon tonight. I got up to go to the ladies' room and once in the hallway, I heard a woman running behind me and she suddenly screamed "HURRY!" She liked to have scared me half to DEATH! Turns out she also had to use the facilities and she was tremendously stressed about missing "the best part". It was near the end in New Moon, what I call "Ming's favorite part" when Edward sheds his shirt to walk out into the sunlight. LOL!
Now I wish someone had written the books a little more with an adult tone. *wink, wink*
