Twilight (Twilight Series, Book 1) Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book 1 in the Twilight series.

I absolutely LOVED this book! Yes it's in the young adult section at the library and yes it's about a girl who falls in love with a vampire, but oh my goodness the story was fantastic!!!! I haven't read a book like this since the Harry Potter series. A book that is so mesmerizing and intriguing as it opens up an entirely different world to your imagination. It took me 4 days to complete it (498 pages) and I found myself thinking about it constantly! The author does a wonderful job describing things so you can picture everything perfectly and the dialogue and suspense are great. It's the kind of book where you get to the end of the chapter and it leaves you with just enough bait to go "oh I can read just one more" and 3 hours later you are forcing yourself to get up and at least go to the bathroom! I'm in love with Edward and the entire Cullen's family. They are so captivating and I love how the author played with the stereotypes of vampires and changed it up a bit. This was just a wonderful, clean, charming romance! I can't wait for the story to continue with the next books and see the movie in December. Also if you go to Stephenie's blog, click on the Midnight Sun link. It's a little snippet of Twilight from Edward's point of view which will soon be turned into it's own book. Yes I am obsessed now! Losties, THANK YOU for getting me hooked!

It's SOOOO easy to become obsessed with these books! I don't know why I waited so long to read them, but I'm kinda glad I did because at least it's only a few weeks until Book 4 - I could never have waited a year for it, LOL! So glad you liked it!

I fell in love with this series too! I hear you about being hooked! I read all three books in less than a week. I didn't DO anything except read! I just couldn't put them down.

Kim, I'm so glad that you were able to read book 1. I'm still (not so) patiently waiting for my library to order books 2 & 3.

Oh I absolutely loved these books. I have never been so hooked on a book series. I am starting to read them all over before the next book comes out. I can't wait!
