Where is Twilight?

Les Savy Ferd said...

that the book about the abstinence vampires?

Meggie said...

no. The vampires had sex in the fourth book.

Linda said...

the main characters don't remain chaste in a teeny-bopper book??

Linda said...

but I do think that's why Oline has boycotted Harry Potter. No sex.

oline said...

yes, i am all about the sex. why else would anyone watch gossip girl?

Meggie said...

There is no sex in Harry Potter but Harry Potter was initially aimed at a much younger audience. J.K. Rowling wrote each year of the book for that age so that the books grew older with the kids.

However, Twilight actually wasn't geared toward the 12 year olds. It was more geared towards upper high school into college crowd. So, obviously, more adult material. Read them. You might be pleasantly surprised by how much you like them.

the chances of Oline reading twilight are about as good as...

Linda said...

as good as her drinking a for-reals full calorie coke instead of a diet pepsi.

oline said...

... as her ever reading harry potter (even in spite of croftie's hex).

Les Savy Ferd said...

waitwaitwait, she's put a hex on you?
