I'll start this review by admitting that I'm not a Twihard, but I'm also not a hater. This book is kind of like a can of Pringles. Once you start reading, you can't stop, but when you finish the entire can in one sitting, you kind of wonder what in the world you just did. Bella's narrative is compelling, and Ms. Meyer does an excellent job of making the reader feel like she is experiencing the story personally. Maybe that's the magic of Twilight? The plot is actually fairly slow (the villains don't show up until 3/4 of the way through the book), but we keep reading because we're caught up in what Bella wants. The setting is beautifully described, and the vampire mythology (which is very different from most vampire mythology) is detailed. I actually don't care for Edward much. I find him overbearing and hard to get to know on anything beyond a superficial level, but I did feel Bella's strong attraction to him and kudos to Ms. Meyer for that.

Overall, this is a book that (obviously) will gain a ton of fans. While I'm not one of those who will rave about the series, I'm grateful to Ms. Meyer for reigniting many readers' love of YA. She brought readers into bookstores and created a thirst for more epic stories.

I started reading YA Paranormal Romance with these amazing series. I
mean, who doesnt know Twilight? I started reading the first book, and
I fell in love with the story, the characters, the plot& and Edward! I
literally read the first three books, in less than a week. But& Im
really sorry to say this; I didnt like the last book, Braking Dawn. Was strange. I
was so disappointing& I mean, it's not a bad book, but I was waiting
too much from it.

Even so, I highly recommend this series.

Millions of copies of this addictive series has been printed and presented to the public. It is a romantic novel that tells the story of two teenagers, one of which, is a vampire and how they overcame their differences to fall in love with each other. Bella, a junior is high school, that moved to live with her father in a small town in Washington called Forks, comes to know Edward, a perfect gentlemen but also a vampire. Edwards desire to drink her blood is quickly repressed by his unconditional love to her. It is a book filled with love and fantacy and is usually finished in a couple of sittings. It grabs the readers' attention and interest in such a way that leaves them thinking about it even after they finish it.

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?

If I write another review on these ridiculously popular series, I will honestly burn these books out. That was only a joke that had a very deep meaning to it. So I wasn't exactly sure if I was a fan of any related vampiristic urabn/supernatural fantasy books out there, because it's not really the best combination of the two, but it was... well, pretty large, in terms of the pages, which determines the volume of the book. I remember I stepped in the school library and started to look for something new and less historical, so I realized that there were new releases which were displayed on the top shelves of each book case. So I picked each book up to take a glimpse of what the novel is mainly about. When I came across a black cover with hands holding a red apple, the first image that came to my overactive mind was wolves and other creatures. When there is romantic twist in the storyline of any novel, you must atleast try to look through the pages, it's rudimentary and imperative. So finally I finished reading the first novel of the saga in about 2-3 days and I was totally aligned with the description of each major and minor characte. So again, it was very important for me to read the rest of the books. You may come across very slow and repetitive scenes in the book, but that's the way it's structured. Have fun reading them, I know I did.

I know Twilight is a huge thing right now, but I will always love this book, even after all the fame and popularity of the series is over. I was there on the dayTwilight was first released in bookstores, before the big hubbabubba started. Only one other girl was in the store buying it. We were so excited to start reading it. I was taken in by the off balance personality of Bella. I was in love with the nerdy Tyler Crowley who wanted Bella but couldn't have her. I hated the rude Jacob and his possi. I wanted to meet a boy just like Edward so I could try and figure him out. I wanted to be Jasper's best friend. I can always return to this book and find a character that I feel could be my best friend, and it makes me so happy. I will always love this book and I hope those who jumped on the bandwagon after the movie will find why the book is so good and will want to keep reading it again and again.

This book is an intruding tale about love. There is a vampire and a human. They both play hard to get but in the end they make love. The vampire, Edward Cullen has an amazing personality. Bella, the human is outragous! At first, she does not know that her boy friend(Edward) is a creepy vampire. This will make you turn the page wherever you are and whenever you are.

Okay....before making this review, I made an attempt to count all of the Twilight reviews but gave up at ten.

Bella Swan, smart, pretty, her blood smells delicious? After moving to Forks, Washington(a real town, cool right?) Isabella Swan quickly finds herself in love with handsome Edward Cullen. Who just so happens to be a vampire!

Before moving on, it almost felt as if Eddie liked Bella because she smelled good, and Bella liked Edward because he was cute. Sweeties, that is not REAL love.

The closer Bella and Edward get, the more danger Bella's life is close to. She is willing to put her life on the line for the man of her dreams and Edward finds himself protecting her from any harm, though harm was soon on its way.

- Vampires gone clean.

5 things I liked/ loved about this book:

- Edward Cullen, what girl doesn't like him? Don't answer that you Teaam Jacob-ers people, whatever it is!

-The umm...natural love Bella and Edward share for eachother.

-All of the exciting lovey- dovey scenes Stephanie seemed to provide us with.

- The cover.

- Alice Cullen.

5 things I didn't like/ HATED about this book:

- The REAL plot didn't come until like beyond page 250.

- Edward's charming beauty is described WAY too many times. Bella, he's cute, we got it after the like fifth time!

- Rosalie.

- I can't name a fourth, move on to the fifth please.

- It's too hard naming FIVE things you don't like about a rare book such as Twilight.

In Twilight, Meyer shows young adult readers everywhere the essence of fantasy. Set in a small town called Forks, Meyer fills the readers mind with first love, everyday challenges, responsibility, and of course supernatural creatures.

The captivating novel shows battle between blood and lust for Edward Cullen, on of the town's few vampire citizens, who lusts after Isabella *Bella* Swan from the moment he laid eyes on her...or just by reading the thoughts about her in his classmates minds.

Bella, a average female, is the new Kid at Fork's highschool, causing embarrassment and awkwardness towards her classmates, but she soon becomes mesmerized by the mysterious Edward Cullen who shows hatred at first but then teaches Bella what it is like to love.
