Growing up, I had always heard mixed feelings about the Twilight Franchise. My mom had told me that she read all of the books and loved them, but I felt as though they’d be cheesy. Yet, here I am, writing a review on the first book in the series.
Since 2020, I have read the first three books, and am currently on the fourth. I would have finished it a long time ago, but I get distracted very easily. Enough information about me, let’s get to my thoughts on the book!
I had no prior knowledge about anything in the Twilight universe. The only thing I knew was there was a girl who liked a boy who happened to be a vampire. In the first few pages of the book, I was hooked. The way Bella’s thoughts were organized in the book were so relatable to me.
She seemed like a very raw character to me and I loved seeing how she grew throughout the book. She is a very relatable teenage character to me. I see a lot of aspects of me in her character throughout the book.
Before I even read the book I knew I would love Edward’s character. I am always down to read a romance book, but with vampires? Even better! I love mystical creatures like vampires so it was non stop entertainment for me.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer is available to check out from the Mission Viejo Library. It is also available to download for free from Libby.
Yesss! I love the Twilight series, especially Midnight Sun, which is like Twilight, but told from Edward’s point of view. I agree, I also see some aspects of myself in Bella (such as her clumsiness . . . :)) Great review!
Midnight Sun is a really good book. I enjoyed it just as much as Twilight.
