Twilight is terrible. And Edward is a jerknozzle. I have read the first one. I couldn't bring myself to care past that. To be fair, romance novels aren't my thing, especially romance novels full of badly wirtten Mary and Gary Sues.
I will have to see what the movies do with Hunger Games. I thought the first book was a really solid example of YA fiction, the second book left something to be desired, and the third book made me very very angry because it was so so bad. It could have been good! But it was terrible. (If your protagonist wakes up at the beginning of nearly EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER you aren't doing it right, and your story needs some serious tweaking.)
As some of you know, I am a Gaiman fangirl (I do not use that word lightly). However, Stardust the movie is superior to Stardust the book. I love most of Gaiman's work, but Stardust just didn't jive with me.
