Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

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 dominant that part might be–that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

“I’D NEVER GIVEN MUCH THOUGHT TO HOW I WOULD DIE– I’d had reason enough in the last few months –but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this. . . . Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of something else, someone I loved. Noble, even. That ought to count for something.”
When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistible and impenetrable. Up until now, he has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret.
What Bella doesn’t realize is the closer she gets to him, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risk. And, it might be too late to turn back. . . .
Deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight will have readers riveted right until the very last page is turned.

I finally get all the hype behind this book, what a fantastic read!!!! You must understand that I am basically a 300 page book girl, and anything with alot more pages, like 200 more intimidates the crap out of me, which is part of the reason this series has been sitting on my tbr for AWHILE!!!!! I am so glad I finally picked it up and read it. The graphic details the Ms. Meyers portrays throughout the book paints such a vivid picture in ones head, it was like I could close my eyes and envision the scenes perfectly. She captures emotions so well, also, I could feel what the characters were feeling. Although I was a little worried that the book would not live up to the hype, it far surpassed it. A beautifully, descriptively written story of love, and how much one will put on the line just to bask in the glow of it. 5/5
