33-35: Twilight 3/4 and Kleypas

35/52: Blue-eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas, 1.5/5 Stars
Someone said to me earlier this year that I wasn't reading enough female authors. I wasn't aware that this was the case. So, I started reading more female authors! However, if this book is indicative of what reading female authors is about (though I think it is not), then I want no part of it--every other page was about sex and the pages in between were about the things that a woman thinks and never says... just say it already!

34/52: Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer, 1/5 Stars
What? Is this book really necessary? It would have been nicer to find a way to answer the remaining questions in the third book rather than slog through this one.

33/52: Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer, 3.5/5 Stars
Best of the four books by far. Good balance. Large enough carrot to keep me starting the first sentence of the next chapter. Big battle at the end.
