I'm sure this is old news to everyone. And to be honest, I finished these weeks ago. It took me about three days to read them all. They're that addictive. Reading the synopsis of the first one, it definitely did not catch my attention. It's not something I would ever pick up. But the girls I work with were all raving about them and I trust their judgement in books so I went to Barnes & Noble, gift card in hand. And these did not disappoint. Join the herd, they're right this time.
This isn't like that whole Twilight debacle. The herd lost some street cred with that crap.
Even if it was addictive crap.
P.S. The price for the whole boxed set (linked above) is really good!
