I finished!

That's right, I finished the Twilight series. All four of them. I could not put them down, I HAD to see what happened. I have been borrowing them from my neighbor and when she wasn't home for me to get the fourth book, I called Motherboard, and she was nice to drop it off to me. And I stayed up WAY TOO LATE on Saturday and got up early and read the rest on Sunday. And I was left disappointed.

I did not like the fourth book at all. If you haven't read the books and don't want me to ruin it for you, stop reading, but I think I am safe to assume that anyone who was going to read them has already. I have been WAITING and WAITING for Bella to become a vampire, and I don't like why it happened, I don't like when it happened and I especially don't like what kind of vampire she became. And I most especially did not like the second section that was taken from Jacob's perspective. I REALLY wish they would have taken it from Edward's point of view. THAT would have been interesting. As is I don't really like the character of Jacob. I know, sad for those of you who liked him, but I don't.

So now what? I finished, yet I'm not satisfied. I want the story to take a different turn. Maybe she should have written more books, done the whole Harry Potter 7 book thing like she originally said when she started Twilight. However, maybe the story would have gotten worse and worse and I would have just wasted more time. I can't say at this point that reading the books was a complete waste of time, because I was entertained. I just wish they would have turned out differently. I'm just sayin'.

I agree. I guess that's how I would term the whole Twilight series: Disatisfying.
I hate the section from Jacob's point of view, too.
I don't hate the series, but I don't love it, either.

I really enjoyed the books but hated the ending. I guess I just wanted a big battle or something. Instead it was anticlimatic. But overall they were fun.
