Still undecided…

I’ve just finished New Moon, so I think it’s safe to say that I’m going to stick it out and read the whole Twilight series.  One book is curiosity, two is in for the long haul, especially as there’s only two more installments left.  The weird thing is, I don’t like them.  I know that they’re YA, but that’s no excuse for the poor writing quality, obvious plots, and bad dialogue.  In fact, it’s insulting to both teenagers and authors to excuse them that way.  Edward is disgustingly condescending and Bella is just plain stupid.  So, why am I compelled to read the whole series?  I guess, firstly, annoying as they are, they’re easy tube-reading.  Secondly, well, I’m a total Buffy addict – what’s not to love about vampires and a girl in love with one.  Bella Swan is no Buffy Summers, for sure, but the comparison’s there.  Is that enough of an excuse?  Hmm…
