I got through Twilight and was so frustrated by it. The author is not devoid of talent - she had a few twists of phrase that I really enjoyed. But then she would sink back into the endless repetitions of how gorgeous Edward was and I wanted to scream YOU ARE CAPABLE OF MORE THAN THIS. I JUST SAW IT ON THAT OTHER PAGE!
When I get bad reviews on my books, I read bad reviews belonging to other authors to make myself feel better.
