(Book) Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

1

With all the hype about this series, I really thought I’d hate it. I was surprised to actually like this book. I won’t say that I “loved” it, but it’s a cute YA book and I’m definitely looking forward to reading the next books. Although, to be honest, the thought of hugging or being kissed by someone as “cold as marble” doesn’t appeal to me. Kinda makes me look for my blankie. 😉

Nah, cute series. Pretty well lived up to all the hype.

I’m trying to find info on the movie without finding info though… I remember someone saying that the movie goes beyond the first book, right? I like to read the book(s) before I watch the movie, so I guess I’d better get a move on!

Synopsis

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.

“I’D NEVER GIVEN MUCH THOUGHT TO HOW I WOULD DIE– I’d had reason enough in the last few months –but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this. . . . Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of something else, someone I loved. Noble, even. That ought to count for something.”
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.

    A good friend of mine LOVED the first book but isn’t so crazy about the second (is about halfway through the second now). I liked the first three well enough, but the fourth annoyed me.

    Her non-YA book is far and away my favorite, though — check out _The Host_. It’s sci-fi for people who don’t usually read sci-fi, if that makes any sense at all. To put it another way, it is on the short list of books that I will read a second time.

    I’ve seen that one too… I might have to read that one. I like some Sci-Fi, but very limited. I’ll add it my wishlist to grab one day. Thanks for the rec!

    I was so eager to hear another “adult” review on this book. My daughter and her friends are beyond fatuated with it. (Although she would be angry for me using such a word for a book as good as Twilight!)

    I myself was one of those that couldn’t put it down. It was such a good love story! I read the next 2 within weeks and am now on #4. If I didn’t have to be a good mom and work on Christmas I’d be done with it too now.

    What was funner thought was going to my daughter and talking to her about parts of it so we really bonded. Good thing know that she’s 15.

    Thanks!

    Hi there, Diana! My kids are 5 and 8. Tom and I both read like crazy. I can’t wait to be able to talk about books (real books) with them. Jamie is already starting to read chapter books. But yeah, it was a well done book, and as my friend, Dy, pointed out, it didn’t have a lot of sex or other “inappropriate” stuff in it.

    Is Twilight the first one in the series?

    I suppose this is a stupid question. They wouldn’t make a movie of the second or third book in a series.
