I was skeptical about reading a vampire novel. I hate all things scary/gory/gross. But this, I liked. It was much more about an unlikely love story than about gross vampirey things. The book reads very quickly. Try it!
But beware...there are four in the saga and they will suck you in!
Plot: Bella Swan falls in love with her soul mate Edward, who happens to be a vampire.
Read: Nov. 6 - 16
Update: I saw the movie with my sister-in-law (who read all four Twilight books in about a week) and I thought the movie was almost as good as the book. It was good in its own way without deleting too many important parts or changing the story. Now that I have read all the books, I'm really curious how/if they will do them all as movies.
Next Up: New Moon (the 2nd book)
