About three things I was absolutely positive.

First, Edward was a vampire.

Second, there was a part of him—and I didn't know how dominant that part might be—that thirsted for my blood.

And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

In the first book of the Twilight Saga, internationally bestselling author Stephenie Meyer introduces Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, a pair of star-crossed lovers whose forbidden relationship ripens against the backdrop of small-town suspicion and a mysterious coven of vampires. This is a love story with bite.

What to say about Twilight?  I read this a few years ago because of all the hype it was receiving.  I wanted to see what it was all about.  I must have gotten caught up in the book’s popularity and entertaining storyline to realize how poorly it is written.  Twilight had a tendency to be pretty repetitive when describing the gorgeousness of Edward {he’s extremely good-looking and immortal already, we get it!}
I saw Stephenie Meyer on Oprah a few months ago and in her interview claims that before the books knew nothing or had any interest in Vampires, which I find hard to believe; and said the scene in which Edward shows Bella what he really is came to her in a dream, well if that’s true it’s a pretty incredible dream.  I guess that if I did ever read Twilight again it would be purely as a guilty pleasure
