I think she's borrowed from a couple different languages on occasion, lol
basic idea of what happens in Valdemar is that there are these not quite horses that actually pick their riders (basically people that are compassionate and want to help others and stuff like that with some kind of ability like mindspeaking or empathy or being able to move stuff with their mind) and bond with them which is like a permanent type deal connecting them so they're pretty much always in each other's heads, lol. I enjoy the whole idea of it ^_^ lol

I'm not big on the fantasy stuff XD I think manga is enough for me in that direction! My mum used to read us Narnia when we were kids and I've read Tolkien but that's my limit.. I didn't even bother reading Harry Potter after book 4 :P

I haven't bothered reading Harry Potter, period. The more popular it is, the more I tend avoid it. Needless to say I avoid Twilight too. I mean, all the best vampire stories are mangas anyway.

I think I did read that series, or at least some of it. there was some dragon series of hers that I think I wasn't crazy about, but I think it might have been more on the sci fi side, and I don't generally enjoy sci fi as much as the pure fantasy stuff, lol. I remember watching Hercules and Xena back in the day, never been to a convention though, but I've never really been to any kind of convention, lol

Gah! I run from Twilight... It sounds like a 12 year old's first release of hormones! I is guilty of reading Anne Rice though, teehee..

I'm against the whole idea of Twilight, vampires should be dark and dangerous, not sparkly

Yeah, if I wanted sparkly, I'd go with Tinkerbell.

Twilight isn't just a bad plot line, the books are just TERRIBLE. The word usage, the characters, descriptions, the whole lot of it. I've tried (emphasis on tried) to read the series just to say, "Yep, I tried it, it sucked." and I couldn't read past the first 2 chapters.. >.< She uses the SAME WORDS over and over and over again as descriptions, and somehow she goes so in-depth without actually creating depth. It's so bland, and a waste of time. I feel like she wrote it sleep deprived and starved at 2 am in the morning and sent it to the publishing company as a joke. There reallly isn't even a plot... everything can be said (from what I have read in summaries) in 1-2 books, yet she's made THOUSANDS of pages over this BS.

Here are some explanations:

http://psa.blastmagazine.com/2008/08...in-a-good-way/
http://theflintskinny.blogspot.com/2...-twilight.html

I just think it would have been better for this series to never have been published, so many young girls have been damaged by this series and will have terrible, abusive relationships because of it... *sigh*
