I originally began reading this book because my husband wanted to know more about it after seeing a lot of trailers for the movie that just came out. l was skeptical that I would enjoy it except that it seemed to possess many similar qualities to books that I have enjoyed in the past (aka Twilight and other books filled with the supernatural and mixed with a love story). Looking back through what I just finished reading I can see why it took me a few weeks to complete, though it was a decent story,and it definitely had it's moments of greatness, for the most part I was simply waiting for something to happen. I am sure I will partake in reading the sequels because that is usually what I do I finally feel like I Can go see the movie without wrecking the book for me. I wonder if they will be able to portray as much in the movie as she was able to write?
