Twilight by Stephenie Meyer | Book Review

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer


(from GoodReads)

About three things I was absolutely positive:

First, Edward was a vampire.

Second, there was a part of him – and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be – that thirsted for my blood.

And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

When Bella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistible and impenetrable. Up until now, he has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret.

What Bella doesn’t realize is the closer she gets to him, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risk. And it might be too late to turn back.

Yes people, I have never read Twilight before this year. I’m super, super, super late in reading this book and I still have yet to finish the series! I am slowly but surely finish the four books, I’m on book 3, Eclipse, right now. I don’t know why I’m suddenly picking up the series I just feel like almost everyone has read the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and I’m missing a huge part of the reading experience if I don’t read the books. Do I have not like them? No. But I will feel accomplished if I read them. So that’s why I am slowly but surely, finishing the Twilight series. Here’s my review of the first book, I read it back in February. I wish I made it more funny because most reviews of this book now-a-days are hilarious.

-Spoiler Free Review!-
But everyone should know what happens right?

The book wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I was hoping it’s be better but it wasn’t terrible, it was simply okay. Some parts of this book were eye roll worthy moments but I didn’t dislike the book as much as I thought I might but then again I’m not really into the whole “vampire” thing so that might explain why I didn’t fall in love with it like some people.

Bella annoyed me at some points. Like how weak and helpless she was. But I guess that’s just her character and I need to except that. I just don’t think I’ll ever understand why she so badly wanted to be a vampire. I get it she’s “in love” but still, being a vampire does not sound appealing to me at all. I feel like she doesn’t fully understand the consequences of being a vampire. She too blinded by the thought of “forever” what about her family? She can’t just up and leave. Her and the ending irked me. I hope the other books get a little better. Maybe?

The characters I actually liked were Alice and Jasper, they were really cool and awesome, I just wished we got to learn more about them.

I believe Stephenie Meyer is truly a good writer I just didn’t connect with ten Twilight world, but I will continue to read her novels and probably finish this series eventually.
