Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Okay, so everyone and their mother has heard at least something about “Twilight” by now. However, I read it, so I’m going to review it.
“Twilight” is your basic story: Girl moves to new town, meets boy who is also relatively new. Boy seems to hate girl, girl is intrigued. Boy saves girl, likes girl, turns out to be a vampire whose very existence threatens girl’s life.
Okay, so the book is totally cheesy and definitely not great literature, but I thought it was fun. From what I hear the other books may be more whiny, with Bella (the aforementioned ‘girl’) mooning too much over Edward (the aforementioned ‘boy’). However, I’m willing to at least give them a try – this made for a quick, fun read at a time when that I was I needed.
