The Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer- After seeing the first Twilight movie I was hooked and had to find out what happened next. I received all four books for Christmas '09 and read all four in January '10. I loved the series, I love the movies and I can't wait for the final two movies to come out.
The Bride Quartet Series by Nora Roberts- I started reading these books while I was planning and obsessing over the wedding and read the last book after receiving it for Christmas this year. It's a cute series and if you love weddings and love chick lit this is right up your alley. However, each book is VERY predictable and follows the same format which is disappointing. But they are quick, easy and light hearted reads if that's something you are looking for.
The Millennium Series by Stieg Larrson- For the most part I really enjoyed this series, I thought the overall story line of each book was interesting and I loved the Lisbeth Salander character. However, there were several issues I had with these books. The first being that they should have been edited down by at least 100 pages or more. There was way too much useless descriptions of what people were eating, how their homes were decorated etc. There were way too many characters, most of whom had very similar names, making it difficult to keep track. And there were several side story lines that ultimately could have been removed without losing anything from the main plot. With that said I did really enjoy these books and I can't wait to see the movies (both the Swedish and American versions) which I hope will focus on the meat of the stories rather than all of the sub-plots and excess information.
And finally I just started reading The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins- So far I've only read the first book but I loved it! I know some people have an issue with the teen violence but unfortunately it's not unheard of for teens in other countries to be sent off to war to kill others their age. As soon as I started reading I couldn't put this book down and after I finished reading it I couldn't stop thinking about it. I can't wait to read the next two books in the series and continue following Katniss's adventures.
