Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

   Twilight by Stephenie Meyer is probably one of my favorite books right now!  I really did not think that I was going to like this series and was greatly surprised by how much I loved this book.  I think that Stephenie Meyer really wrote about what most of us can relate to with out it being a true boring story.

   This book takes place in Forks, Washington, where it rains all the time.  Bella Swan, our main character in the story, decides to move to Forks to live with her father.  She hasn't been to Forks in years due to the fact that it rains all the time and it's always cloudy.  She loves the warmth and the sun.  She is happy to move to Forks only to give her mother some time to travel with her new husband.
  Being the new girl in town is a little uncomfortable for her, but in time she makes new friends and learns her way around town.  On the first day of school she come to learn about the Cullens.  A family of children adopted by Dr. and Mrs Cullen.  She finds out through her friends that the Cullens are paired up in couple statuses, except for one.  Edward is a handsome, pale boy, who keeps to himself and shows no intrest in any of the girls at the school.

   Her first contact with Edward is an odd one.  He seems to be repulsed by her.  She plans on finding out what his problem is with her but, he suddenly goes missing for a few days.  When he comes back, he tries to learn more about her and be friends with her, all while trying to warn her to stay away from him.  This back and forth being friends goes on for a little while, but Edward can not stay away and Bella finds herself in need of his saving a few times.

  After a few near death experiences it seems that they are meant to be.  Some attraction beyond belief seems to exist for this young couple

  This was a quick read that sucks you in and keeps you going until the very last page.  I didn't want to get into another saga after Harry Potter, but I gave into the Twilight phenomenon.  I was hooked and had to go out and buy New Moon right away.  I love, love loved this book!
