My love for vampires began with Twilight and will continue to be with the Cullens – forever! Full marks to Stephenie Meyer for her imagination, and portrayal of each character. Twilight is the first of the four books in the series.
Bella Swan has to move in with her Dad in Forks, and she just doesn’t seem too keen on it. Not like she has a problem with him, but it’s the weather and the thought that she has to make new friends. During one of her breaks in school, she sees the Cullen Family who are amazingly beautiful and love to keep to themselves. Bella couldn’t stop herself from literally staring at Edward.
His weird behavior and aloofness around her manages to bug her no end. But as things slowly fall in place, they manage to strike a friendship and Bella falls hopelessly in love with him. Her friends envy her as they have been around longer but nobody has ever got that close to Edward.
Bella meets Jacob Black as her Dad’s friend’s son when he comes to drop off a truck that her father got for her to travel to college. During one of her beach trips with her friends, she bumps into Jacob who enlightens her about the vampire stories and how Edward wouldn’t come to the beach as he wasn’t allowed in their territory.
Edward’s entire family is of vampires and most of them have special powers like reading minds, seeing the future and being able to control minds. Edward invites Bella to a baseball game with his family. It is during the game that they have fellow visitors. Edward’s eagerness to save Bella from their view and his failure in doing so sets off the most dangerous game for James – a tracker.
From there on, it’s an interesting chase. I could kill to be loved like that by Edward! Every Cullen member was lovable, but Bella – ugh, never mind! Without exaggeration, I have read this book a good five times, and I can read it over and over like a million times. Unfortunately, I left it back at home when I moved cities. With the turn of every page, I was only asking for more and did not want it to end. The book definitely gets a 5/5. Of course a must read!!
