Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

This is the story of a teenage girl who falls in love with a vampire. It’s not your typical vampire story, there is no gore, no sharp teeth, and very little blood.

Despite that, this book has it all! It gets your heart racing with all of the twists and turns that one novel can manage.

Isabella (Bella) Swan is an average, plain, boring, teenage girl who moves back to a small town to live with her single father. On her first day in high school, while trying not to be noticed, Bella comes across a very different family. More specifically, she sees a beautifully unique boy. His name is Edward Cullen and she is drawn to him.

It’s not long before the two become friends and she learns his deepest, darkest secrets. She should be afraid, and he reminds her time and time again that it’s in her best interest to stay away. But she can’t. There is a connection between the two that cannot be denied, and they fall in love.

He tries to be human, and she tries to fit in with his vampire family. But trouble follows her everywhere. She has many near-death experiences. How long can this vampire put his love before his thirst for her blood?

I recommend this book to any female. I’m not certain this is a book for guys. It might be, but I think it depends on their interest. If you’re expecting horror and gore than look elsewhere. If you’re ok with danger and suspense then look no further!

The reason I recommend this to the girls is because it’s a true love story. You know in high school when the average girl and the hot guy start dating? Or when the quiet, straight-A -student girl meets the dangerous, rebellious guy and wants to enter his world but be safe at the same time? OK so maybe it only happens in movies, but every time it does, our female heart flutters away, and you can’t help but blush as you secretly wish it was you.

This novel is quite the page-turner. I finished it in less than three days, and I am a very slow reader. Believe me, I couldn’t put it down!

  1. I have to admit that I’ve seen the trailer for the movie version, and it doesn’t do anything for me.

    But I’m a big believer that books are pretty much always better than the movie equivalent – and you’re enthusiasm for the book may just make this guy read it… 😉

  2. […] If you’ve got teenage kids, you’re probably aware of Twilight. Even if you don’t have teenagers, or aren’t even parents at all, it’s pretty hard to miss the pop culture phenomenon that is the Twilight saga. […]
