Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.
Summary from Goodreads:
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.
In the first book of the Twilight Saga, internationally bestselling author Stephenie Meyer introduces Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, a pair of star-crossed lovers whose forbidden relationship ripens against the backdrop of small-town suspicion and a mysterious coven of vampires. This is a love story with bite.
So for the longest time I told myself I would never read Twilight, cause I’d seen so much hate for it, but I decided that I should form my own opinion on it.
Well, I’m glad I decided to form my own opinion about this, because even though I didn’t like it that much, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be.
I liked it at first and I thought I was going to actually really enjoy it, but as I kept going it just got worse…
First, I didn’t like Bella. I think that’s the reason I didn’t like this book all that much. She just really annoyed me. I did actually like Edward though, and when I was starting this book I thought it’d be the other way around, but nope…
And Bella talked so much about Edward being her entire life. I mean, she’s only like 16, and they like had just met. You gotta give it a few books before you say something like that.
The romance also just kind of felt weird to me and I didn’t like it…
I don’t think I’ll be continuing this series… It was just really hard going into this book with all the hate surrounding it. It was so hard to form my own opinion without being influenced by other people’s opinions. I might have liked this book more if there wasn’t so much hate around it, but oh well.. I’m still proud of myself for reading it and forming my own opinion.
3.5 out of 5 stars
