My All Time Favorite Series!

Twilight is the epic love story of Edward and Bella. Forget any vampire romance you have read before, Twilight is unique. It's insta-love, yes, and I have a big problem with insta-love, but it works. I insta-loved this story, too.
Bella is sarcastic, lacking in confidence, and annoying at times, but I like her and can't help rooting for her, while Edward is absolutely devastating!!! The romance between them is touching and compelling. They both are unwilling to give up hope that their relationship is not doomed.
Maybe Twilight is not for everyone. Bella is quite annoying. Edward is too perfect. Jacob is sadly adorable. BUT this book is my very first love! Jacob, Jacob, Jacob, oh how I adore you too...

This was one of the most enjoyable, most romantic books I've read in a long time.
DEFINITELY A MUST READ! I will love this story forever.

Good Points
A gripping story line with a love triangle between two completely different beings.

Twilight

Loved it!!!

Good Points
Nice writing. Loved the way Bella started out as this vulnerable girl that was so clumsy and insecure that she had to be protected by a vampire and then a werewolf. And by the end of the series, she was the protector of them all, vamps and wolf pack included. I think that is a very empowering message for girls to hear.

I give it 5 stars again. Twilight is my own personal brand of heroin.

Honestly I was a little worried what I would think after so many years and books between me and my first read(s). I gave it five stars then because of how it captured my attention. I was luckily the whole series was out, and I couldn't stop until I read every last word of the series, including the partial draft of Midnight Sun. The story telling still swept me away, the romance made me feel bubbly and made me imagine myself as Bella. I loved the family aspect on both ends. Charlie and Renee, her mom and dad, and then Edwards' vampire family. Carlisle is so compassionate, Esme motherly, and then there is Alice. She is so happy, and I love how she just accepts Bella in and loves her as a friend.

It made me happy, transported me to a different place entirely, where the words flew by but I tried to savor each one. I loved the character development in this one, and can't wait to go even further with these awesome characters.


I really loved the storytelling and the characters, and the romance. It all made me have that drive to read more and find out what happened next. Twilight rekindled my love for reading, getting transported to another place. Giving me new characters to love, new settings to imagine myself a part of, and a romance to swoon over. It also led me to blogging, because I found some awesome blogs that had lists of books to read after Twilight, and though I dealt with Post-Awesome-Book-Depression because the Twilight series gave me all the feels, eventually I found others that tickled my fancy with the help of my library and book bloggers with awesome recs and reviews.


Bottom Line: I give it 5 stars again. Twilight is my own personal brand of heroin.

One of my favorites!

I have read and reread this book many times. This book is a age crosser. I have friends that are older than me that love this book and their daughters love this book. Luckily that is how I found it. I bought all 4. The first is my favorite. Nothing like first getting to know the love of your life. Stephanie Meyer just truly has a way of describing scenes and events that makes you feel part of the story. You just plain get pulled in and can't wait to read more.

Good Points
Good love story

Love can conquer anything

I guess it's hard to go to a book site and not rate Twilight and The Hunger Games in this day and age. So here goes my opinion on Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.

Twilight was thought to be a new concept when it first came out. Vampires, and love? Could love conquer one vampire's need to feed off of the most delicious smelling blood ever? According to Meyer, love can conquer anything. If a lion and lamb are in love, then they will indeed stay in love. And from that point, I can't rate twilight badly.

The only real problem with Twilight are the annoying fan clubs. Some people just got too into the idea of vampires.

I really liked Meyer's comparisons and the different characters. Although it did seem kind of weird to me that Edward just out of nowhere seemingly fell in love with Bella upon meeting her.

Vampire romance

The first book in the Twiight series starring Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Bella moved to the rainy town of Forks, thinking her life was just gonna get really boring. But while at school she meets Edward, a beautiful, pale-faced boy. But Edward is not what Bella thinks he his, a vampire.

Sometimes this book got slightly boring as nothing was really happening. There wasn't enough action for a vampire book. I didn't fins this book as the review said it was but I guess it was written pretty well.

Good Points
Brilliant characters with strong personalities that were described beautifully.

Classic Teen Infatuation

I will always love the Twilight series if for no other reason then it turned me onto paranormal romance books. I actually hated to read before I picked up Twilight, and now I've read more then 200 books in 3 years!

How that happened, I work at an elementary school and I noticed all the kids (boys and girls) reading it, then I noticed that parents were reading it, and finally a few of my friends had it... I had to see what could possibly have all of these people interested. Yeah, I was hooked after the first couple of chapters. I couldn't put it down and I swear my husbands jaw dropped when he saw me reading. lol

It's a classic teen infatuation story, add some mystery and vampires to the mix and you have a pretty good story. I think what makes it is the writing style. Everything flows from beginning to end and it's almost as if it's really happening.
