Well I gave it a shot. I didn't hate it quite as much as I expected to, but I think it is because I went into it knowing I was going to be reading a bad book. With that said, it DEFINITELY is a bad book. The writing is lame, the "love" story makes me gag, I could do without the constant description of how pale, cold or graceful all of the vampires are. And the ending was just too predictable [THEY WENT TO THE PROM? SERIOUSLY??:]. I think I'll skip the rest of the series.
