Author: Stephenie Meyer

Series: Twilight Saga

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 Isabella, 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.

New Moon

For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of an evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may just be beginning....


As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob -- knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

Breaking Dawn

In this riveting novel, questions will be answered and the fate of Bella and Edward will be revealed.
How will it all end?


This is the first book that got me into reading young adult books, and books in general. Do I think the book is corny? Yes, in the sense that the plot is ridiculous (though still unique).

It is definitely unlike any other vampire book you've read. Vampires don't go out killing random people and drink their blood. And these vampires don't turn to ash when they're exposed to sunlight, they sparkle. Yup, like glitter, or, as Stephenie Meyer describes it, diamonds.

I will always agree that the plot to this book is ridiculous, but I still think it's a good book. Because of the intensity between the main characters (Bella, Edward, and Jacob). There's just something about the way they interact that keep you interested throughout the book. I can't explain it.

I've had many people ask me why I would read such a book but I can never explain it. I tell them to give it a read. Some have, and I know that some never will. But the ones that have read the book, got hooked.

The writing is good, the connection between the characters is the thing that keeps you reading, and the plot is...egh, I guess.

You'll just have to read it for yourself to understand what I'm talking about ;)
