Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Just so you all know, I have heard all of the arguments for and against this series. I have heard how reading these books "puts unrealistic expectations on spouses/future spouses." I think that anything that becomes an obsession can do that. I do not look at my spouse any differently than I did before I read this series. He still lights my fire! I still have eyes only for him. I don't lust for an Edward clone. I do however expect to be adored by my husband. I don't think that that is an unrealistic expectation. Edward and Bella adored each other. Why should I expect anything less for my marriage or for my children's marriages? And by the way, when I see my husband...he sparkles ;)
FYI: I'm still resentful that Stephenie Meyer hasn't finished Midnight Sun which is Edward's story. BUT I'm still a fan of the series.
