I read them a few months ago...
It's really all about expectations. I was expecting nothing and I found them more hilarious than anything and they've become the source of numerous jokes among my friends.
It seems like any plot is just randomly tossed in after a few hundred pages and is very thrown together. The rest is just about Edward's "hotness"
What made the books for me was the rest of the Cullin chilluns... they are ridiculously under-used.
