    Perfect 4 any Twihard =~)

    Love them, exactly as described, very Twilighty.(I know not a word) My only complaint would be is that if you push a book to far up against the side of one of them they seem to tilt.

    Can't do Without!

    I am so happy with these. They are the perfect size and weight. They're a must have for every fan of the Twilight saga. With the pre-order of the new Eclipse novella coming out, my collection is now complete.

    A Nice Addition to a Twilight Fan's Library

    I was sooo excited when these became available to purchase on B & N's website! I snatched them up quickly!! I had seen them in-store around Christmas time, but when my husband returned to buy them for me as a gift, they were sold out!!! When Christmas rolled around, I was so disapointed...instead my husband had purchase on ebay these incredibly cheesy "Twilight Bookends" that someone had clearly made from pieces of spray painted wood, plastic chess pieces, and a plastic apple...they were ridiculously expensive too!!! Of course, he felt horrible he couldn't get the ones I wanted, so he bought a replacement...I love him for his thoughtfullness!!! Anyway, these WONDERFUL bookends are now displayed on my desk holding up all of my favoriate vampire series books! My only complaint (to explain the 4 out of 5 stars), is that because of the chess piece shapes, they don't hold the books up straight, instead, the books kinda lean against them, that kinda bugs me!

    Great Gift Idea

    Got these bookends as a gift for my daughter who is a HUGE Twilight fan. She loved them! The bookends are good quality and can be used as decorations anywhere in her apartment. The colors are neutral so that they can used for a girl or boy's room.

    Adult Twilight Fan Here!

    I've had my bookends for about a month now....they still look like they came right out of the box (but of course I don't have children to throw them around to see how durable they really are). They hold up anything I put between them without sliding (so I would say they have a decent weight to them). I'm a Twilight fan but I'm an adult not a teenager (which the books are really aimed at). I just wanted to put that out there if anyone is considering it for a gift. Thanks.

    love them

    I got them awhile ago after i read through the books for the second time so I was pretty sure I reached the fangirl stage when i saw then and had to have them. they don't actually say they were made for the Twilight series or anything to do with them, but they look just like the cover of Breaking Dawn. which I'm sure was the point. they're actually really heavy and sturdy. but the display ones in the store were broken and chipped so i figured they were easily broken so i don't even touch them. they sit there holding all my books (other than twilight) on my dresser. they're pretty expensive. i'm not so sure they're worth 50 dollars, even if they are solid wood. but they sure beat the candles i was using before as bookends.

    These Bookends were the perfect gift...

    My daughter is an avid reader and loves the Twilight Series. She asked for the movie version of Twilight for her birthday so I surprised her with this set of bookends that match the cover of one of the books. She loved them. They are a good size and very heavy. They are a nice addition to her book shelf. I recommend these bookends to anyone who loves the Twilight Series or Chess.

    Really cute...

    They are very large and heavy and as cute as they can be. The only problem is that there are occasional flaws in the pieces. I opened a couple of different boxes until I found a perfect pair, and I can't be happier with them. They surround my Stephanie Meyer books and look divine.

    The White Queen & The Red Pawn

    A must have for every Twilighter out there. This holds the collection on your bookshelf perfectly - besides it ties the whole saga together. Looks really good too. The red, white, and then the black covers of the books. ;)

    MUST HAVE!!

    I've been after these since late last year. At the actual store they don't last! They sell like hot cakes!! Because everyone wants their Twilight books to be on regal display by none other then Breaking Dawn cover-the white queen and the red pawn. I'm a HUGE Twilight fan. I've been looking for these online for sometime and I'm so glad that they're finally on here. Thanks goodness I asked for BN giftcards for xmas! Honestly, people might think they're a bit steep in price, but they're SO worth it. They're huge! Very, very beautiful! A must for any Twilight fanatic.

    Wow.

    I bought 2! My friends birthday is coming up and she loves Twilight as much as the next person. I was so excited that I bought one for her and one for myself. I got the only 2 the store had. They're a great gift for any Twilight fan.
