No reason for me to ponder on what to answer here. I'll read anything that Stephenie'll write and I mean that literally. Even if she wrote a book about girls and their love for horses, I'd read it (and that's really stretching it, since I'm a guy).

I was just wondering how many other people are planning on reading Stephenie's other books like The Host and other future books.

I know I would probably read anything written by Stephenie, Twilight related or not. If she re-wrote the the phonebook (as has been said before) I would probably read the whole thing. That's just me- what about you?

It is not only that I really like the topic that she talked about in twilight but I really like the style she uses to write. It is wonderful. I read the host and i liked it. not as much as twilight but that is becasue I love edward.
I was already past trying to live through one week at a time, or even on day. I was fighting to make it through a single hour. It was only a matter of time - and not much of it- before I showed up at your window and begged you to take me back. I'd be happy to beg now, if you'd like that.

I wish that there was a "Maybe" option for this poll...not just a "Yes" or "No". :)

I'm not a big fan of books that are strictly categorized as "romances" (read entirely too many of those years ago) for one thing, and I'm too cynical for another; and that's absolutely not why I picked up the Meyer's Twilight series -- I was curious about how Stephanie chose to develop her characters in a vampire kind of world. But I admit, it was Bella and Edward that kept me reading. And likely the memories of my own "true love(s)" while I'm reading about those two. And I've been re-reading "Twilight", "New Moon" and "Eclipse" because of their character development and their growing relationships, as well learning about the unique world they live in...not because it's supposed to have romance (although that is a sweet, but minor guilty pleasure). And I seriously enjoyed Stephenie's writing style (regardless of some minor quibbles that I noticed and others have mentioned). It's why I picked up the other two books immediately after reading the first "Twilight".

That being said, I finally pre-ordered "The Host" via Amazon the other day, after discussing the book with my friends at work who've also been bitten by the Twilight series I'm sort of willing to give it a try, although I'm rather uncertain that I'll like it. But, I do love good science she's got me with that hook.

After all, as dull as Harry Potter got in the last book, I pushed on reading till the end...just glad I'm a fast reader.

I'm also intensely author-loyal and I love the idea that she started the Twilight series because of a dream. I love fantasy and sci-fi too, so I would defenitely be reading The Host when it comes out.

I really like her writing so i would read one of her non-Twilight books.
But i wouldn't go out of my way to get them like I would the Twilight books. If one of my friends gets it I'd brow it for sure.
