Twilight (Twilight, #1)Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Ok, so, everyone who's anyone has heard of Twilight at this point, and for the most part, we've all formed our own opinions of it, be they really bad, or really good. I fall in the in between category. I first read these books back in 2009, but I realized I'd never done a review on any of them, so, I decided to re-read them to do a review.

If you base your sole opinion of the Twilight Saga on the movies, then yes, your opinion is bound to be bad, because, I'm sorry, but the movies are not very good. But as for the books, I think you should give them a second look.

Now, I'm not saying they're amazing, and honestly, the writing style is a bit juvenile, but hey, it's a YA romance, so, it fits. But honestly, the books aren't that bad.

Twilight is the story of Bella Swan, who moves to Forks, WA to live with her dad when her mom marries a minor league baseball player. She kind of becomes the instant star in a small town where there are little to no changes in day to day life.

When she meets the Cullens though, it all changes. Bella surmises, through a little help of an old friend, that Edward Cullen, who seems to hate her, but then slowly starts to warm up to her, is a vampire. And she starts to fall in love with him.

But when a rival band of vampires come to town and decide that Bella looks like a yummy snack, it's up to the Cullens and Bella to keep her out of harms way.

All in all, yes, the storyline doesn't seem very exciting, but the whole book/series is about finding love, and the differences that "people" face going through love. If you like YA romance, and you like vampires, and you put the movies out of your mind, chances are, you'll like this series.

All in all, the whole series gets better as the books go on, and while they can be a bit dry at times, and the writing can be a bit juvenile, the series isn't bad. It's an entertaining read.
