New Moon — Stephenie Meyer

I have my fingers in my ears ready for the howls of derision. Very much enjoyed this book and hope she can keep the story telling and bring it to a satisfactory conclusion at the end of the series – I’ve got Eclipse and I’ll get the one after when it’s out in paperback. These books are also very successful and selling well so I want to know why. Apart from their targeted demographic, they have exactly the same quality as the Harry Potter books, which I also enjoyed: transparency. The author isn’t getting in the way of the story. Of course these won’t make it to many people’s top tens – I don’t mean the ‘what I really enjoyed reading’ top tens, but the ‘what I want people to think I enjoy reading’ top tens.
