vampires and werewolves

twilight saga

These are the main characters of the Twilight Saga. Plus the human of course.

Yup, I've read it. Haven't watched the movies though.

I didn't plan on reading the books by Stephenie Meyer when I learned that it was a love story. I have been a love story retiree for years, I am into suspense and mystery novels now. But my friend R has a collection of the Twilight Saga, she let me borrow it last weekend.

What's the verdict? Do I like it?

I love the Twilight book. What I love about this book is the unconditional and selfless love between the vampire (Edward) and the human (Bella). I shed a few tears because of the intensity of their love for each other. Ok, I admit it, I am a sucker for love stories. That's the reason why I don't like reading love stories anymore, I am such a cry baby.

I was so excited to read the next book, New Moon. But it was a disappointment, for me though, because this is more of Jacob's story, the werewolf bestfriend of Bella. I did finish the book, Edward resurfaced from his hibernation towards the end of the book. Edward left Bella because he doesn't want Bella to get hurt anymore.

I don't even remember the title of the 3rd book. I got so bored with it I decided to NOT read it halfway through the book.

Breaking Dawn is the 4th and last book of the Twilight Saga. This is more about Edward and Bella's daughter. A thick book that didn't make me excited to read every single word. I just scanned the book, the "conversation" parts of the book.

My verdict? I definitely love the first book. The second and third, Not! The fourth, it was important to make the vampire-human love story a happy ending.

Have you read the Twilight Saga? Did you like it?

Oh i've read the books..all four and convinced my hubby to take me to see New Moon. Which he hated! I thought it was rather cheesy, bad acting, but a delight anyways.

Haven't read the book yet but I watched the movie Twilight and Twilight Saga: New Moon. I am pretty excited to watch the 3rd series which is the Eclipse.

The best thing od watching the movie is you can satisfy your 'visual imagination'.

Have a nice day. Thank you for visiting my blog.
