Book Review: Twilight

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on June 23, 2008

Wow, has it been awhile since I did a book review. I have been reading a lot, but just not posting about the books I’m reading. Recently, I have read Uglies (as you know), Pretties, Specials, Extras, Twilight, New Moon, some magazines, and, of course, some textbooks/notes/study materials (lucky me). Oh yeah, and I’ve been reading tons of blogs, and browsing the internet, and I think I’m out of excuses. No, I’ve got one more. I don’t like to post about sequels to books, because I find myself ruining the first one.

So, now that I’m done telling you why I’ve been ignoring them, how about I do one? I think that that sounds good. This review is on an amazing book, one that I resisted reading for quite some time, but once I read it, I couldn’t put it down. Right now, I am resisting reading the rest of the third one in the series.

Summary
This is a very difficult book to sum up. I’m going to do this one a little differently, and I’ll use key words to describe the book (if you want a better explanation, Amazon can probably help you).
Bella. Renee is her mom. Phoenix to Forks. Charlie is her dad. Meets Edward. Very Odd. Forks equals rain. Vegetarian vampires. Emmett and Rosalie. Alice and Jasper. Jessica and Mike. Bella in danger. Nothing happens as expected. Watch out. Life or death. 17 forever. One bite.
What I thought
Although I resisted this book for awhile (some friends that NEVER read books were obsessed, and something about it didn’t appeal to me), one day at the book store, a sales lady asked if she could help me, I was buying Extras at the time, and just wanted a book to read after that. Somehow, this girl made me want to read it, or at least try to read it. Something about vegetarian vampires got me interested. Anyways, I read the book. Very quickly. Very good. I could go on and on. Stephenie Meyer is an amazing writer. Read this book. If you have, you know what I mean, if not, read it. I guess the sign was that some of my friends that never read were obsessed, because it was amazing, and a bit different. This book will change your views on vampires and make you want to read the next ones (The 4th one [Breaking Dawn] comes out August 2nd).
Note:
This book is being made into a movie, and if you want to be able to imagine the story without the hollywood version nagging at your mind, go read it now!!!
Also, it is about vampires, so if you’re not good with that stuff, don’t read it (or read it in daylight =D).
Enjoy this amazing book (and the next two… New Moon and Eclipse),
xoxo
