Book cover Synopsis:

When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring 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. . . .

Deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight will have readers riveted right until the very last page is turned.

bunnyWhy I love these books:

I have to admit I was hooked on the Twilight series. I read book after book after book. I would pass them onto my mother and she gobbled them up like candy too.

Stephenie Meyer is not the best writer in the world, she writes popcorn. But the popcorn she writes is so buttery and thrilling to swallow that before you know it you’ve read all four books and seen the movie twice.

Meyer’s writing got much better as she developed the series. The first book was rather infuriating with the repetitiveness of how gorgeous and amazing Edward was and how Bella didn’t deserve his beauty and did I mention his amazing body? Blah blah blah on and on for a few hundred pages of the same gaga drooling. It’s the plot that draws you in. The world of vampire culture that Meyer creates is thrilling, dangerous and utterly addictive. It’s a fantasy world filled with vulnerable magic powers and deathly enemies. It roams from fighting inner demons to significant battles.

I think the most compelling aspect of the Twilight series is the fact that it is set in our world. Bella is a normal, slightly awkward teenage girl who goes to a regular high school. The only difference is, vampires in disguise are also on the attendance sheet. It’s the world that you always knew was lurking round the corner, just past the corners of your eye.

    Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
    I think Stephenie Meyer underestimates the intelligence of the 14 year old girl reading the book because the language would be more suited to a 9 year old. That being said, for the 26 year old who read the books, watched the movie, got the T-shirt, she is skillfull at selling an idea. The idea of a deep, enduring love that you would die for – literally! Meyer has written good characters that the readers can relate too. The books as they continue develop better plotlines and backstories and the characters are more engaging.

    I read Twilight when it was first released and threw it away. That’s how terrible I thought it was.
