My Name Is Snickerdoodle: And the second runner up is...

And the second runner up is...

Breaking Dawn. I know I already blogged about it, but my views have changed a little. I am reading it for the second time and totally taking my time this round. I have been reading on some other sites, reading reviews and hearing the murmurs that this book is a big flop. And the most common theme with these complaints is that everything is working out too perfect. There is no tragedy. Well, shouldn't that be a good thing? I am a big fan of the happy ever after endings because I believe that it can happen. So if you are one (like I was) that was not completely satisfied with this story, give it another try. For Edwards sake!!!

  1. whaaat?? i haven't heard it's being called a "flop". grrr! that makes me mad. seriously, can't Edward and Bella just have their Happily Ever After without any complaints? sheesh! personally, i LOVED the 4th book! even me, the dark and twisty one! lol it's my new fave. i love how it all works out. that's how the series should end!! duhh. people kill me.

    i'm glad you're reading it again. :)

    love ya!

  2. Round two is definitely better. And I love the happy ending-who wants something bad to happen anyway-not I.

  4. i MIGHT read it, again, but it really is my least favorite, it's not how i would have ended it, but it wasn't my story to write. i appreciate the story...just not a huge fan of some of the turns in it. ummm...renesme (hate that name)...and jacob stuff...not happy about it, and think the end dragged a bit...but i still love the series. i was torn between edward and jacob for bella, so that really explains my issues with the book. ;0)

  6. I loved the book! Twilight will always be my #1 but BD is possibly my #3. I intend on reading it again soon. Loved the very end of it.

    Found a link where Stephanie Meyer explains some questions people had about the book, you can see it linked on my blog http://yeahlikeihavetimeforthis.blogspot.com/2008/08/breaking-dawn-q.html

  7. I've checked out the interviews and message boards with everyones views on the book. I can totally relate to the people who LOVED the book...but on the other side, I can totally relate to the people who HATED the book.

    I did go back after my first read and re-read certain chapters. After a few days of thinking I can honestly say I loved it! I'm just wishing it wouldn't end! I was bummed too that there was no epilogue!
