Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

by Stephenie Meyer

Paperback, 464 pages

November 6th 2008 (first published 2005) by ATOM

From product description,

The book that started the phenomenon is now available in a deluxe collector's edition! Featuring a ribbon bookmark, cloth cover, ragged edges, new chapter opener designs, and a beautiful protective slipcase, this edition is perfect for fans and collectors alike.

Bella 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, Bella'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 Bella, the person Edward holds most dear.

Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.

No one really needs an intro to what this story is all about! Really my 5 on 5 rating is all that you need to know! Another devoted admirer of Meyer has joined the bandwagon :) and well, she is hunting for the next installments already. Well seriously I really heard about Twilight, when the movie was about to be released! All of the blog-world world went berserk raving about it! I really wanted to read this one, but suddenly I was scared of not liking it, and I kept on putting it off :)
And finally, finally I read it :)! In 2-3 days FLAT! Really! I am a very slow reader! And this was amazing! The only other book series I have devoured like this is the Potter series - but I am yet to read the last installment of that :D - that's a whole different story ... I will tell you later :)

So back to topic, I just LOVED it, period :)

Guys! I really like Bella Swan, Edward ... damn everything ;)! I so want to read more about Vampires! :)

I found this funny link @BookGirl's NightStand .. it is for all those who like me are Twilight Fans ... go read it! Seriously it is funny!

Actually I still haven't been able to start reading this book. Maybe because I have heard sooo much about it that makes it non intriguing. Someday I will pick it up. Nice review

Glad you liked it. It's a fun series if you're looking for light reading.

Glad you liked it so much! New Moon is kinda boring, I think (mostly Bella being whiny), but the others are okay. Now that you've finished Twilight, you really should read Midnight Sun - it's the same events, but from Edward's point of view. I like him as narrator more than Bella. :)

I haven't been inspired yet to jump on this bandwagon but I'm glad that you enjoyed it.

I read the books before it was famous. I would have a hard time reading famous books too. The pressure's too high to like the book...and there's always a chance I would loathe it....but I love Twilight, the first book.

I didn't like Flowers in the Storm, but I love Memoirs of a Geisha.

Iliana said...

Yay, so glad you enjoyed the book. Isn't the comic strip hilarious. I didn't like the rest of the books as much and actually haven't even gotten to the fourth one but Twilight is just great. Will you be seeing the movie? I loved it too :)

Darlene said...

You're too cute, Veens. I was pretty resistant towards this series as well but am liking it despite myself. Have you started New Moon yet? Vampires are hot, huh??

WOW! Love your reads!

Thanks again for dropping in and entering.

Glad you liked it. I really liked the story but thought the writing was just so-so.

I'll probably read the rest of the series in Sept-Oct.

Sheila DeChantal said...

I agree - much like the Potter books you just have to keep on reading until you are done.... food and life is optional... especially in Twilight. ; )

Meryl said...

OH MY GOSH--that cartoon is so true! They're like crack!

When you're done with the Twilight books you should read "The Host" (also by Meyer) too. Although the lead character in "Host" is a lot like Bella (who in turn, I think, must be a lot like Meyer), I really, really enjoyed it.

hey... i am completely in love with this one... already read the first and am about to start with the second one... 'New Moon'
I have kinda taken it up as a challenge to finish all four before the 5th book and 2nd movie comes out in 2009. :))
