I would have not only loved this book, I would have fallen in love with Edward Cullen. Sure, he’s a vampire, but what teen age girl could resist his charm and mesmerizing good looks? The level headed Bella certainly couldn’t! Even after learning that the urge to bite her neck and suck her blood was every bit as strong as the urge to kiss her, Bella was hooked.
When Isabella (Bella) Swan’s mother remarried a minor league baseball player, Bella knew that her mother would want to travel with her husband, so Bella chose to leave sunny Phoenix and move in with her father in the small constantly cloudy town of Forks, Washington. As a child Bella had spent summers in Forks until she finally put her foot down refusing to go. She had always hated the place, but she loved her mother and did not want to hold her back.
The very first day of school, Bella found herself seated next to the mysterious Edward Cullen. Was it her imagination, or did he actually glare at her with hate in his eye?. Bella could not imagine what she had done to make him dislike her so. Only days later while standing in the school parking lot, Bella looked up to see an out of control car coming towards her. She was frozen and couldn’t move. Before she knew what was happening someone pushed her to safety. It was Edward and it seemed like he had appeared out of no where and stopped the car with his bare hands. Bella was determined to find out how he had done it. What was his secret? Why was the gorgeous Edward Cullen interested in Bella?
How much did I enjoy reading Twilight? Enough that I am now reading New Moon the second book in the Twilight series! There is something addicting about these books. Who doesn’t enjoy a romance novel with a twist. They are just plain fun to read, even if you are not seventeen years old. Twilight was a New York Times Best Seller within a month of being published. I can see why!
If I were 17 years old…. definitely a 5 omelet book!
35+ years later- 3 1/2 omelets
