I read the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer so long ago, I don’t even know what to say in a review right now.  I have been putting off writing a review because I didn’t know what I could write that hadn’t already been said, and I still don’t, but I suppose I’ll write a few quick notes anyways.  I decided to review them all as one for time’s sake, and because I don’t know if I could write full reviews on each.  I think everyone knows the basic plot of these books by now, Bella Swan, typical teenager, moves to a new town and falls for Edward Cullen, who happens to be a vampire.  This results in a lot of danger for Bella  and Edward, from other vampires and retaliating werewolfs.  Twilight is the first in the series, and we are introduced to Bella and Edward, and we see the progression of their relationship.  New Moon is a continuation of this story, with Edward leaving Bella “for her own good”, and Bella moping around because her heart has been broken.  Eclipse really sets us up for Breaking Dawn, the finale where we find out what will become of Edward and Bella.

My favorite was Breaking Dawn, although this seems to be the most heavily criticized of the bunch.  I was happy with it because finally things started to happen!  Often in the other books, especially through New Moon, I felt frustrated with the lack of progression of the story.  A lot of the same problems arose; nothing was ever resolved.  I was happy with where Bella and Edwards lives took them in the end, and I know a lot of people thought it all wrapped up to nicely, especially with Bella’s best friend Jacob, but I think the ending served it’s purpose.  Anyways, I don’t have much else to say, so how about a poll?!

And another?

    just starting reading this series. i really got into Twilight. I just finished New Moon and agree w/ you…slow slow progression of story. i found it very frustrating that she took so long to move the characters along. i did something i normally never do, i started skipping paragraphs and pages b/c i was getting bored! i was considering not reading the last 2 books but maybe i will just to read Breaking Dawn which another blogger said was a great end.
