Review'd: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Book Review:
Title: Twilight
Author: Stephenie Meyer
Pubished: July 18th 2007 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Rating: 4 Stars

Goodreads Summary:
Stephenie Meyer's thrilling debut novel is a love story with a bite. In this suspenseful and sensual tale, 17-year-old Isabella moves to a small town in Washington State and gets more excitement than she bargained for when she falls for an enigmatic classmate -- who happens to be a vampire. Filled with fantastic mystery and romance, it's a heart-stopping novel that captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires.

DeLibrarie (Nichole) Review:
I originally fell in love with this book the first time I read it for probably the same reason that everyone else fell in love with it: because Bella is such an outcast she's easily relateable, Edward is described as the most perfect guy ever so he's easily loveable, and the attention and care that Bella receives throughout is easily desireable. So while it's sort of a dream come true story for most readers and the plot is a great idea, the writing style really could have improved. It was almost unbelievable and word choice could have been better. But I'll always enjoy reading this for the story and I hope that you do, too! Just don't go see the movie first... it did not do the book justice in any way.
