by Stephenie Meyer
Twilight is not only a global phenomenon, it is also a great book! Since this was the first book that got me into reading, it'll be the first book I review! It took me a little less then a day to read this at first but if and when you read this you should savor it! Take your time to appreciate every sentence and every character carefully!
Isabella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Isabella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Bella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knife -- between desire and danger. Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.
Freshly original and shockingly romantic, Twilight has become one of my favorite books on the bookshelf! Isabella or Bella Swan's character is klutzy and naive, which is easy to relate to, while Edward Cullen's (sigh) character is hypnotic and charming! This is the ultimate story of forbidden yet true love! The characters are caught in a life or death situation that tests there love and trust, making suspenseful yet mesmerizing! Like all books there is some points that are not to great- like the over klutzy-ness of Bella or the overprotective-ness of Edward, of course these characteristics can be easily overlooked when viewing the book as a whole. When I first started to read this book I was instantly intrigued and then hooked! It IS MOST DEFINITLEY A MUST READ!
