!!!!! I never wanted this book to end! i wish that stephanie would have made this series last forever. i dont know how her version of a vampire love story became such a hit among teens and tweens but she made an awesome set of characters and made you want to read about them forever. she must be living large right now because her books were freaking fantastic!!
My daughter (16 years old) is an avid reader and was hooked on Stephanie Meyer the instant she read "Twilight." She kept wanting me to read it, but I just never found the time.
Now, many of my 7th grade girls are reading it so I figured it was about time for me to read it too. I must say that I'm pleasantly surprised by this book.
It is basically a love story and one of the main characters is a vampire, but there are so many parts of the book that young adults can relate to. The characters deal with peer pressure, falling in love, trying to be accepted by others, etc.
My school library chooses not to carry this book, but I think I will put it in my classroom library very soon!
This is my second favorite book of all time. I love this book because it's about vampires and I'm into that sort of thing. All the creepy and scary stuff. Though this book I could probably give to a 6 year old and it wouldn't be scary. This book is fabulos, I hate all the romancey stuff but this book was AWESOME! Now the movie I can't say the same for because Kristen Stewart- GOTTA GO. Taylor Lautner- stay as long as you like. ANYWAY, if you haven't read this book (I'd be shocked if someone hadn't) READ IT. I remember sneaking this book from my mom and reading it in the dark so she wouldn't know I had it. Seriously the big was like crack to me. I COULD NOT stop reading the book. As soon as I set it down, somehow it was back in my hands and I was reading it again.
This book was captivating. It is the kind of book one wants to read over and over to get every little detail. I also liked this book because it was romantic but their is more to romance than sex. I have read many books and quite often that is what the whole book is about. It was refreshing to read a book that verbal instead of JUST physical love. Bella was one of my favorite characters because she is 3 dimensional and dynamic. I love Edward because in spite of that Bella thinks he is perfect, well he is not. He has his own troubles and difficulties that he has to overcome.
I read Twilight because all my friends were saying how good it was, and when i finshed this book, i immediatly wanted to read the next one. Infact, i like this series so much that i used Eclipse (book 3) for an english assignment. By now, i think all the girls in my grade have read and re-read it, myself included.
Bella is the new girl in town. Everyone seems to be very welcoming, except for a boy in her chemistry class, Edward, but strangely enough, Bella is fasinated by this pale, perfect boy. As she tried to find out more about Edward and his family, she discovers a secret that might be better left unknown.
Twilight is a book that I know many teenagers have heard about. At first, i din't want to read the book because that was the book that everyone was reading but then i started hearing more and more about it, and thought to myself if everyone is reading this book then it must be good. Twilight is about a teenager, Bella Swan, who moves in with her father. She starts school at the local high school where she meets Edward Cullen, when something happens, she learns that Edward and his family are hiding something that no one is to know about but Bella is determined to find out his serect especially when she realizes she loves Edward.
Meyer takes forbidden love to a new level. What's more forbidden than a vampire in love with a human??? New to town, Bella Swan is in for the ride of her life when expecting a quiet boring home, and instead gets the love story of the decade! I picked up this book and did not set it down until I was finished... One of the best books I have ever read... If you like romance and action go to the nearest bookstore and get Twilight now!
Twilight is the best book I've read in a LONG time!!! I only started to read the book because I had a report to do on it for English, but when I opened the book and started to read; I couldn't stop!!
Twilight starts as Bella, (the main character) moves to Forks to live with her dad. She starts a new school, meets tons of new people, yet it's not enough. The beautiful, flawless Edward Collins is the one she can't keep her eyes off of.
Bella's a clumsy one, and Edward always seems to be right there; at the right time. As time passes on, Bella falls in love with Edward, soon after finding out he's a vampire. Though Bella knows being with Edward is a danger, she doesn't care. Things seem to be perfect, but as we all know, perfection doesn't last a lifetime.
Now that the Twilight series has exploded with almost cult-like popularity, its various features and drawbacks have been picked out and away at by various critics. I do agree that the Bella and Edward love story is not perfectly ideal- but I think teens can handle it. Can adore the couple's chemistry while not adhering every aspect to their own life and be able to see it all in a fantasy context. The writing of Twilight is very straightforward, like a teen's diary practically.
twilight is a sotry about a young girl who moved to forks to live with his father.there, she meets a mysterious pale-looking attractive boy who seemed to hate her when he first sees her. she soon discovers that he is a vampire and his family but they are the different kind. she soon learns that she is irrevocably in love with him and so is he. but obstacles keep coming on the star-crossed lovers. while playing baseball one day at the field, three nomad vampires gets in their and one of them, james who is a tracker and hunter, smells bella's delicious scent. edward and his family tries to take her away somewhere far from there. however, he finds her and tricked her into him. at then end edward found where bella and james were and tried killing him because he had hurt bella and bit her. at then end bella was saved! :)
