Here I am - finally succumbing to reviewing Twilight. . .
Mrs. Meyer. What. Have. You. Done? The worlds gone utterly bonkers from the charm of your books - and frankly, Im sick of all the thirteen-year-old girls shrieking that theyve loved Twilight (read as: Edward) since the publication date.
Poppycock! I remember when I first got Twilight: I was in books-a-million, attending a sale, and the cover caught my eye. The back made it seem like a good read (which, dont get me wrong - Twilight was amazing!) and so I bought it. This was in 2006, I think. Maybe 2005 (I cant remember - but I know it was before all the hype began). It only really became popular in the last two years, after Eclipse was released (I know because thats when I settled down and read Twilight - then order New Moon and the newly released Eclipse) and thats when chaos broke lose.
Okay - ranting aside - Twilight is a beautiful novel and well worth the time to read it. The writing style isnt too grand, but that doesnt really matter. The plot and the characters are lovely - if you can look past all of the boys acting like weird stalkers around Bella and if you can stomach Edwards fierce protectiveness.
I recommended this book to many - some who hated it and some who loved it. I suggest that if youre a lover of romance novels with a kiss of paranormal activity, like I am, than pick this up. That goes without saying, though, that youve probably heard about Twilight till you developed a nasty qualm in the pit of your stomach. . .
But, hey, you chose to read this review, didnt you?
