Hey everyone! I'm Lisette, Liz for short, and I'm currently a second-year Ravenclaw. In the year or so I've been here, I don't believe I've ever introduced myself in this forum, so I figured that posting in this thread was long overdue ^^ IRL, I'm 17 years old. I'll be starting my first year of univ...

I love how she mixed romance and science fiction, how she made the characters so realistic and three-dimensional, and especially how she raised a lot of philosophical questions throughout the book, especially regarding what ...

I second what North Ellwood said. While the books aren't completely awful, the overall plot and love triangle get extremely irritating as the series progresses. Likewise, I find a lot of the characters to be extremely Mary Sue-like and not very realistic. But in spite of that, there's enough drama a...
