Twilight fans who want to see where the vampire baseball scene was played in the movie won‘t be headed to Forks, Washington. Instead, they should head to Oregon to the Columbia River Gorge & Multnomah Falls. I spent many a field trip, family gathering, day date, etc. there. The upper & lower #waterfalls together are 620 ft of beauty.
I read as much as I could take. I couldn‘t finish this book because it was just so poorly written. In addition to the poor writing, I didn‘t like Bella. I found her to be a weak two dimensional heroine. Considering this is a YA novel, I thought she was a bad role model for young girls. I know plenty of people who love these novels, but I won‘t be reading any more of them. I personally believe there are better books for young people to read.
“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 potent that part might be—that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.”
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer is a young adult modern fantasy story focused on the love between a vampire (Edward Cullen) and a human (Bella Swan). The two meet in high school when Bella moves from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington. They immediately catch each other‘s eyes and, although Edward tries to keep his distance from Bella, he can‘t. Edward ends up revealing his true identity to Bella which in turn wraps her up in a dangerous war against
I wanted to end 2020 and bring in 2021 by reading books that I normally wouldn't. Starting off that list is, #twilight. I never got into as a teenager or had any interest in it all actually, so now all these years later, I've decided to give it a go!
When I heard that “Midnight Sun” came out, I felt the urge to read from the very start of the twilight series. While I was never a huge twilight fan, I have read the book back in middle school and I gotta say that reading it now, I really enjoyed it! There is something so beautiful about the characters exploring what it means to be human, not literally but in a metaphorical way and fighting for what ‘forever‘ means to them.
1. This is a real dilemma. I love both. Kooky characters can be more light and humorous, but creepy characters can be so fascinating and delicious. 🤩
2. I am pro-all-three, but I do have a lot of love for witches in particular. 🧙🏻♀️
That said, I haven't actually read much witchlit but was obsessed with the Twilight saga back in my final couple years of being a teen... 🧛🏻♂️
I had picked up Twilight as a post-Phd reading treat. In many ways, it was exactly the read I needed. I want to be careful about panning Twilight as, so often, a lot of the ridicule seems to trivialize it‘s young, predominately female fans, and often feels weirdly gendered. As for the writing: the characters are flat, the writing is unnecessarily bloated, and the story is riddled with plot holes. Will I finish the series? Probably.
Hey guys!!! It has been a while since my last post it‘s been really crazy with this pandemic and my move all at the same time, I haven‘t really had a chance to read! Now my home is coming along I can some what relax time for a re-read!
I read Twilight so long ago that the movie over shadow the book for me! Going to re-read this so I can read Midnight Sun!!! Can‘t wait!!! Who is re-reading twilight? Anyone wants to join me??
Day 4/20- Everyone has conflicting reviews about this series, but honestly, I really liked it. Both the movies and the books. Some people thinks Bella and Edward's relationship was toxic. But Edward's a vampire for Christ's sake! He's got his own issues to deal with! The movies are my sad days specialist. They always cheer me up😄
The book, (I feel) is more enjoyable than the movie. Bella has more to her character, though by the end of the book she is conterdicting herself because in the beginning she states that she hates characters/people who are so dependent on their significant other. The movie leaves out a lot of fun details that would be great to see on screen, but are in the book.
It may not be everyone‘s cup of tea, but I will forever love Twilight. I had the urge to reread it after almost 15 years, so here we are...
As a huge Twilight fan I couldn‘t be more excited about Midnight Sun‘s imminent release. As a treat to myself I decided to invest in the Twilight series in hardback. These aren‘t available new in the UK so I sourced an ‘as new‘ set, along with a couple of companion books. I‘m delighted with them 😃 🖤🧛♂️ #TeamEdward
• I was supposed to have a visit with one of my best friends who lives on the other side of the country, but that‘s also been delayed until further notice
• Twilight (series reread for book club 😁) In The Hand of The Goddess, and Sword in the Stars
• I took a break from classes and watched some bad TV
Why not!? Thoughts???? I‘m a far cry from my 23 year old self reading Twilight!
Oh hell yes!!! I am HERE for this! Excited for August 4 🤗❤😁
I read this book in three days. Yesterday i was up until 4am reading it. I COULD NOT STOP. I would not recommend this to everyone, just because some people might not like it at all. But if you‘re willing enough, READ IT!! Please
Reading this again via audiobook and severely judging the things my very young self thought were okay. For example, saying “I love you” after the meadow scene which, mind you, was only like 2 days after he started talking to her again. AND meeting the parents after 1.5 days. ANDDDD. Carlisle and Alice loving Bella after less than a week???? But I can‘t lie I‘m swooning again
It‘s been almost 10 years since I‘ve last read this and it still hasn‘t been long enough for me to forget 😂 Listening to the audiobook on my way to work and I keep being surprised (when I honestly shouldn‘t be) at how much I can quote and how much I giggle at everything. It‘s still hitting my feels so much even this many years later. Once a fangirl, always a fangirl.
I am usually a book monogamous but in my quest to reread some series this year I decided that in addition to my #Potteraday I would also do a #vampireaday... I am enjoying it, however I am having a hard time not picturing the movies and I hated the movies!
I‘ve been shelving the Twilight books so often at the library recently - it‘s definitely having a resurgence! Has anyone reread it recently?
