The book we all love to hate. Or hate to love. My gateway read into YA. The epitome of teenage angst and emotional crushes.
“twilight, again. another ending. no matter how perfect the day is, it always has to end.“
➡Young Adult Romantic Fiction
➡Me and @May14 decided to read the whole series together
➡A 17 year old girl named Bella Swan moved into a gloomy neighborhood named “forks“ she meets this guy name Edward cullen, they become a thing and turns out he is a vampire, but not an ordinary vampire, him and his family survive off of animal blood, but a mean vampire hunts after Bella, luckily Edward and his family manage to save her.
It‘s the first time I‘ve listened to this as audio, rather than reading the physical book, and it‘s just as good as the previous three times I‘ve experienced the story. I love the vampire versus werewolf acrimony, the legends and of course the love story. I don‘t think I‘ll ever tire of this series ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Please don't judge me...I love this series! 😶 Plus it was the gateway drug that really got me into reading YA! 💕📚 This copy is really special to me because I had it signed by the author when I met her at a library event in Philly!

Y‘all, is it possible for a book to get worse? Because I think Twilight got worse since the last time I read it... I think I prefer the Tumblr shitposts of amazing & absurd headcanons to the books at this point. Gah.
(Definitely not continuing my hate-#reread of the series at this time.)
There are 2 types of people in this world. Those who like Twilight and those who don't admit to liking twilight 😂 I loved this book, though so many years later I am still struggling between Team Edward and Team Jacob...
As much as I enjoyed this book, it isn't one of my top favourites, though fellow bookworms may agree one can never have a favourite book.

Giving in to the desire to hate-#reread this series. Makes for a good evening read — not too much work (the flashes of rage at the misogyny/ableism/racism et al in the text aside....) & just enough reasonable prose to bind it all together. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I‘d never given much thought to how I would die- though I‘d had reason enough in the last few months- but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this.

I feel like the love I have for Twilight and the rest of the series is merely nostalgia rubbing itself on the pages when I read them. The plot‘s there, some of the characters are there, but the writing feels like a Charlotte Brontë fanfiction and a good portion of side characters fall flat. And I guess that works for some! But do I still love Twilight? Yes. Will I read the rest of the books? Yes. #stillavampirenerd
Have you ever opened your book and then your head starts to sloooowly go back and then eyes become oh so heaaavy. And then. Within a second. You‘re asleep! Cause if so, you can imagine how I took a two hour nap and only read four pages. #alwaystomorrow
Again, I‘m moving soon and like the dense, idiot man I am, I packed every- single- one of my books. So, I downloaded the Libby app, got my library card, and searched for books to read. Reading Twilight now out of respect of the deep-love I found when I was younger. Let‘s hope it carries on! #twilightstan
Reread on audio of book one did not disappoint at all... in fact, I‘m switching this from a so-so to a pick, and 3 stars on GR to 4. 😃
I get the issues people have with the Edward/Bella relationship, but this isn‘t meant to be great literature, folks. The writing is not as bad as some say, and the story is fun and engaging.
I‘m still unapologetically Team Edward. 😍
This is happening... I‘m rereading the Twilight series, this time on audio.
Started this one during my cloudy, cool morning #audiowalk along the river, and so far, I still love it.
Feel free to judge. 😂

I know people either love or hate Twilight but I am firmly in the Love It camp. It‘s the book I wish had been around when I was a teenager but I had to wait till I was near 30 for! I recon I read this just after the movie came out after being encouraged by my eldest daughters friend who has loved the series. Never looked back!
I read this for the first time when it first came out. I was a young mom, often stuck at home, and it was a fabulously escapist book. I reread it for a YA Literature class I am taking in grad school, and I'll admit - I was worried. I am in a completely different place in my life now. I work full-time, my kids are closer in age to the main character than I am, and I have a degree in English Literature.

Well, my mom suggested this one to me (even loaned me the book😂) and you know what? I enjoyed it. I really did, for what it was I was thoroughly entertained. Was it deep compelling literature that moved me fundamentally? No, but those books aren't exactly common, and this was purely entertainment for me and I was entertained.
So I reread this as a part of a growth project for myself. I'm trying to be more open minded since I'm a librarian but it didnt quite make a difference in this case. Read my notes on the book on my blog
[#BookReview] Twilight by Stephenie Meyer! It had been at least eight years since I have read any of the books in this series so I thought it could be fun to take a trip down memory lane. And although I noticed issues with parts of the romance and with the writing itself I had a really good time re-reading Twilight. 🍎📖🌙
1. Twilight as a book. Dark chocolate as comfort food. So I guess a dark chocolate version of Twilight, maybe? 😅
2. Staying in! Taking long baths! Reading!
3. OMG literally none so far. I've read three books and didn't like any of them. Maybe Fried Green Tomatoes is slightly better than the other two.
4. I feel like I've been tricked into this question and don't know the answer LOL
5. will do ❤🖐🏻
Not sure this counts—I‘m not really ashamed. I think that as the grownup feminist woman I am, I‘m supposed to hate Edward Cullen. I love him.
I read these books in my early 30s, as a recently divorced mom of 4 little kids. Sparkle/blood diet aside, Edward reminded me of my first love (whom I didn‘t marry) and how passionately we were in love.
I get the problematic aspects, but Edward was a perfect book boyfriend for me. 🤷🏻♀️#lovehate
Wrong. So wrong. I HATE love triangles, especially in YA.
