Congrats, Stephenie! SM Wins Author of the Year :-)


Lately, I've been writing about a lot of smutty stuff, like paparazzi pics, because there's just no new news lately, folks! However, here is some real, wholesome news to balance everything out!

Stephenie Meyer has won a Children's Choice Book Awards 'Author of the Year' for Breaking Dawn.

Congrats, Stephenie!


[Source] Thanks, Twilight Lexicon and MakeMeAVampire!

P.S. It's unclear what category BD won in, may be the teen category! Still baffled as to how BD could ever be considered a kiddie book.

  1. Am I the only person out there who thinks maybe Breaking Dawn isn't exactly a children's book? Isle Esme's not okay for little 8 year olds to read. But that's just my 'pinion. Still, congrats Stephenie. I'm glad she won teen's choice too!

  3. Breaking Dawn isn't totally a children's book, I agree. My only complaint was that it kinda fell in the middle. Not for 8 year olds, but not as steamy as most women my age would have like it to be. lol

  4. Yeah Breaking Dawn....def not a kids book. Maybe that's because us 20+ women have imaginations that get away on us when reading things about Isle Esme and the cottage, hehehe. But either way, all that gore I wouldn't be wanting my child to read

  5. Yah while I'm very excited for Stephenie (Congrats Stephenie! You SO deserve it!) I have to agree that aspects of Breaking Dawn did strike me as being inappropriate for young children.

    I thought I read somewhere (I could be wrong) or saw an interview somewhere where Stephenie her self considered having a warning placed on the book (something I'm sure her publisher did away with).

    The part that struck me as something too adult for a young child to read (or try to imagine/picture) was the part where Edward has to cut her belly open with his teeth and then the baby biting her.

    While necessary to the story and definitely believable I think that mental image can be sort of scary for wee ones.

    Isle Esme and the cottage were cool with me 'cause it was more implied than completely explained.

  6. Side note: You know Twilight has resulted in tons of vampire books...well I'm secretly hoping that New Moon results in tons of hot shape shifting Native American books.

  7. That bugs the living crap out of me. BD is so not a childrens book. Im 31 years old and have to say, the contents of BD we're NOT child like.

    Im not complaining, their first night together as vampires was very steamy. I loved when Alice returns from the cottage with the key and Edward says, "Finally!" I still chuckle at his impatience!

  8. How in the world Isle Esme or the "birth" of Renesmee could be classified as children's reading material is beyond me.

    However; congrats Stephanie!!!!!! It's my favorite in the saga (this week)!!!!

  11. Breaking Dawn was my favorite and it so deserves an award, Congrats Stephanie!

    But as a 30+ I dont think it was for children or Tween material, i believe it was just right for the 20+ category letting us use our more developed imaginations...LOL

  12. I don't think that Breaking Dawn is a book for kids, but congrats Stephanie!!!

  13. I'm definitely the last person who should be judging what is or isn't inappropriate material for children but BD is definitely not! Teenagers, yes but someone anyone young than that... not so much.

  14. Woot Woot! Congrats to Stephenie! I agree with everyone, this is not a children's book.

  15. It won in the "children's" category, but I don't understand why...there was nothing "kiddie" about this book.

  16. I agree that BD is not a childrens book. But, if you've read what it says in the [Source] link, it says that the winners were chosen in six differet categories based on the different age groups, and that Stephenie won the "teen category". ;)
