Okay I've mixed feelings about this series. Did I enjoy them? Yes, absolutely. Would I put them up there along with books by Melina Marchetta or Sherman Alexie? Absolutely not. They were entertaining, just like the Twilight books were--but by no means were they great literary novels. I choose to give this book 4 stars because if I was to be honest, yeah, I really liked it. Did it move me, make me cry or think? Nope, not particularly. But they were fun and I'd definitely recommend them.
