the awesomest review of TWILIGHT you will ever READ!!!

Yes, this is [probably] one the greatest reviews of Twilight you will ever read!
Why? Well, for one...I did not write it!
And if Twilight seems like a really random book to "review," it's a banned book, and this is Banned Books Week! Yay, relevance.
Again, lemme say that I did not write this, but it's pretty much WORD FOR WORD how I feel about the book!
So here's a review of TWILIGHT from someone who knows a thing or two about writing.
Guess who it is!!

Twilight, Stephenie Meyer. I'm a sucker for a good vampire story, so I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. The story was a page-turner: regular teenage girl falls in love with a guy who turns out to be a vampire. I thought the writing needed some editing. If the girl's heart skipped a beat one more time or the vampire smiled his "perfect crooked smile" I was going to fling the book across the room. But hey, I kept reading to see what would happen next. I'm sure the book will be popular. It would make a good movie.

That's right, folks. This review was written by the one, the only:

Nice tidbit! I had no idea it was Rick Riordan's review! On Twilight/banned book week... I would think that adults wouldn't be so harsh on it when if you look at the romance in Twilight compared to, say, Gossip Girl, Twilight's pretty darn innocent!

Hoppin' on off to the next blog!

Lol, I wonder how he got through it in the end. And as it turns out (personal opinion), it doesn't make that good of a movie. =P

Oh Rick hahahaha most honest and succinct review of Twilight ever. I loathed the books...I'm glad to see he said the writing wasn't the best, but he figured it would be popular :)
