Stephenie Meyer Mini-Challenge COMPLETED!

I have completed the Stephenie Meyer Mini-Challenge. This is officially the first "challenge" that I have completed. Not that it is really that impressive, because once I read Twilight, I would have read every single one of her books, regardless of the challenge. They were that good. I started the challenge on June 24, 2008 and finished on August 5, 2008.

I finished the Host shortly after we got back from vacation. It was different from the Twilight Series, and it did take me a little while to get into it, but once I did, I really really enjoyed it. I finished Breaking Dawn about 15 hours after I bought it (and I was sleeping for about 8 of those hours). I won't spoil any of it for you, but I was pleasantly surprised with the twists and turns and plot developments. For once, I feel satisfied with how the story ends.

Stephenie Meyer is a very talented writer. Her "voice" sounds just like the thoughts in my head (nuances and such). It is very easy to get completely absorbed and caught up in the story. Yes, the Twilight series is about "vampires" and "werewolves". But that doesn't detract from the amazing storytelling. It just adds to it.
