I Am Bereft

Main Entry: be·reft
Function: adjective

1 a : deprived or robbed of the possession or use of something : lacking something needed, wanted, or expected

I just finished Book 2 (New Moon) of the Twilight Saga, and I don't have Book 3 (Eclipse) in my possession. I may actually have to clean my house this weekend.

If you're looking to borrow a copy, I'm pretty sure that my sister (Tori) has it.

Like you, before your bandwagon hop, I don't get the Twilight thing. And just three blogs ago I ran across an article in which Stephen King said this chick Stephenie Meyer can't write!


I guess when you have tons and tons o' novels under your belt you can criticize. But I was still really surprised that he would go on record saying that.

Have a little heart Steve.

He also said James Patterson cannot write but admitted that both of them are highly successful. Hmm. Maybe there's hope for me yet.

SarahPee: Thanks for the offer, but I ended up ordering the complete set of books from and it should be here by the end of the week. I can wait.

Cardio: I used to be on the "King" bandwagon (in the 80's), but lost interest in his style. He IS a good writer, but slamming another author isn't cool. Stephanie Meyer's isn't a great writer, but she sure writes compelling character's. She's got me coming back, and he doesn't.

Anon: "suckaaa!" Is that a 'pun intended'? or are you a vampire? You're right either way.
