ISBN-13: 978-0316015844

My Rating: 5/5

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 potent that part might be-that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

I need to start off this review by saying that I read 'Twilight' a long time ago. However, I didn't have my book blog then. If I did, I can assure you that it would have been fulled with me swooning over Edward Cullen and just gushing about the book in general. I thought that, since it's been a little while since I've read (or reread) 'Twilight,' it was safe to write a fair and accurate review without having heart palpitations every time I mention a certain sparkling vampire. I fully intend to write a review for all 4 books in the Twilight Saga but for now, let's just start with Twilight.

'Twilight' is the story of Bella Swan. Not that I feel the need to reiterate the story to you as I am sure we are all VERY aware of who Bella and the Cullens are. Bella moves to Forks, Washington, meets an incredibly beautiful boy named Edward who turns out to be a vampire. And a sparkling one at that! I think that Stephenie Meyer has a very...unique writing style. I do love 'Twilight'-the book-even to this day. But Stephenie Meyers book is unbelievable. I am not ashamed to say, I was obsessed when I read 'Twilight.' From the first page on, I was hooked. I was "irrevocably" in love with it lol. I do highly recommend that everyone at least try 'Twilight' out, it may not exactly be your cup of tea but I love it.

I don't think I've ever read through anything as quickly as I read through the 'Twilight Saga.' It completely consumed my life for a long time. It's so...compelling that I've heard of women leaving their boyfriends, heck even their husbands, because they can't compare to Edward Cullen from 'Twilight.' I won't comment on that but I will say, I almost loved 'Twilight' that much lol. However, my love for the 'Twilight Saga' has faded, I'll never have a bookshelf that doesn't have the entire Saga on it. It rekindled my love for reading and brought me back into a world I had given up on! I haven't stopped since so I am forever thankful to Stephenie Meyer and the 'Twilight Saga.'


  1. I agree wholeheartedly with your review! I couldn't stop swooning over Edward the first time I read this. =P Twilight is what got me into paranormal books so while I am not as obsessed with it anymore, it will always have a special place in my heart. =)

  2. I've been thinking of re-reading at least the first Twilight book. The first time I read it, I enjoyed it and then it became this huge, much loved, much talked about, much dissected phenomenon. It'd be interesting to look at it again with that in mind.
