Yeah I'm not gonna lie, I've read this and the entire series. Honestly, I don't take it too seriously. To those who think this series is going to take the place of Harry Potter (and lets be honest, those people exist.) that will never happen. Yeah this isn't the one of the best written books ever, and it will never compare to HP. BUT, it is a good series to read when you want something light and fluffy as an in-between kind of thing. I consider the Twilight Saga a very light series to read when you're in between books you really want to read, hence the previous sentence. If you take Twilight too seriously, trashing it and things, then don't read it. This is just a fluffy romance, nothing more really.
