“I like the night. Without the dark, we’d never see the stars.”


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.

Personal Experiences

I would never have read this book if it weren’t for my friend who said that the books were not like the movies. I promise. This series has been getting a lot of negative reviews, but I’d like to share with you a pretty positive one. Have you ever read a vampire romance? Vampire romance books are going to seem implausible and out of proportion, because they are. They are a type of fantasy romance, depicting something that can’t happen. This is why, I think, the Twilight Series has been getting negative reviews. Because it doesn’t seem real. But the truth is a vampire romance cannot seem real, because vampires are not real. Now with that in mind, let’s look at Twilight. Stephanie Meyer does an excellent job in writing about how a human can get sucked into a fantasy world. I will admit that it is written sort of like a movie script, without much detail or imagery. I also wish we could have Edward’s point of view a couple of time, but it’s not that bad of a book.


“And so the lion fell in love with the lamb…” he murmured. I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word.
“What a stupid lamb,” I sighed.
“What a sick, masochistic lion.”

“I decided as long as I’m going to hell, I might as well do it thoroughly.”

“Even more, I had never meant to love him. One thing I truly knew – knew it in the pit of my stomach, in the center of my bones, knew it from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, knew it deep in my empty chest – was how love gave someone the power to break you”
