You know, I find this whole thing especially disgusting.

A few weeks ago I went to an acting workshop. It ended up being useless anyway, but that's not the point. There were a whole bunch of people, most of them eccentrics like me; others were wannabes that read the scripts in monotone. Throughout the hours I was actually able to get a long with a few people: two girls and a boy. They shared a lot of the same tastes as me: MCR, Muse, heavy makeup, foreign languages. It was awesome.

This was the first chapter book I read. I was starting 6th grade. I finished the whole series in a week (yes, I skipped a few chapters and the majority of New Moon & Breaking Dawn). I don't know about anyone else, but I like my male characters to act... I don't know... manly? Not like some possessive, always depressed, stick-up-his-ass glittery fairy princess. He wasn't a man to me, I couldn't picture him as a man. No matter how hard I tried, I pictured some girl with red hair and obsessive ...more

When this first came out, I was young (youngER, anyway) and easily influenced. Okay, so it wasn't like I immediately jumped the vampire bandwagon and started sticking posters of a shirtless Taylor Lautner all over my bedroom walls, but I DID think that it was a great series.

Well, it's not a BAD series either. It's good the first time around; then you read it again and you realize how annoying all the characters are. The best thing I can say about it is that the action scenes (the very, very mini

I've added the Twilight Saga Box Set on Goodreads for sorting and bookshelf purposes, since I've already reviewed and rated all 4 (5) books separately. Those reviews do however need to be updated and I am planing to do so, but I figured I'd write a new short review for the box set.

I am, and have always been a fan of the Twilight Saga; specifically the books. I think the only reason I was able to enjoy the movies was A) because I've read the books and know there's much more than the lame one-lin

...I'm just gonna go ahead and let Stephen King take this one:

“Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend.”


The one thing I will hand to Stephanie Meyer, however, is that somehow she is still aware of EXACTLY what a teenage girl wants to read. She is aware of the hero the teenage girl wants and the heroine the teenage girl wants to pretend she is. When I first re
My brain has been a bit burnt out recently, so I felt like reading something a bit lighter, and I was curious about the Twilight Saga having heard a great deal about the sexual connotations of the vampire narratives and the link to preservation of virginity movements in the USA. The books were jolly good page turners. I initially thought that it was interesting how Bella was presented as just an ordinary teenage girl with nothing really special about her. The best bits of the books were linked t ...more

Book 1: Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1) by Stephenie Meyer. Keeping in mind the target audience and not expecting great literary depth, I highly enjoyed the book. The depth of love between the main characters is a bit unsupported and unbelievable in the first book, but it is a fantasy after all. 5 stars

Book 2: New Moon (The Twilight Saga, Book 2) by Stephenie Meyer. My least favorite of the 4 books. I felt like Bella was slow to come to conclusions I'd come to early on in the book. It was a
Nothing beats the amazing franchise that is The Twilight Saga. Though we all have an image of what Edward and Bella look like if we were to read it now but it still doesn't take away from the glorious vampiric world that Stephenie Meyer created. However there are a select group out there who read this before the big film adaptations came along. Before the days of Pattinson and Stewart and Lautner. Before Team Edward and Team Jacob though that was around in its own way. The beauty of reading it b ...more
I'll be honest. I read these books because my daughter and my students were reading it and I like to be able to intelligently converse with them about things that are important to them. I think the reading/vocabulary is actually simplistic and easy-to-read so it is great for those who aren't the "best" readers and it got many of my reluctant readers to read avidly! I don't love the vampire/werewolf fad but I think it is basically the same old good/evil theme in play. Remember,that Edward and the ...more
Excellent series! One of my favorites. So much better than the movies.
The entire Twilight Saga was a great series. My favorite was the first book because it is all about how they met and I just find it the most interesting.

I think the theme throughout all of the books was love and sacrafice. Of course in each book they have other small themes. In the first book one theme would be everlasting love, because Bella falls in love with Edward even though he is a vampire. And in the third book a theme could be Good vs Bad because the Cullens try to kill all the bad vamp

the series were okay and were moving in a way. but to be honest i HATED bella swan. she is like the worst character ever made, both in movies and in books. she is given a lot of attention by author, more than she deserves, i mean like come on, a normal backward girl who is not assertive and not the "beautifullest" or outgoing is chased by allot of handsome hunks? seriously? if people would be asking alice out, or even rosalie, take at least jennifer who are far more mixing and awesome than this ...more

Twilight totally changed my life. Please don't quote me because that sounded pretty stupid. But before Twilight, vampires had a cape and chased Scooby-Doo around, ya know? Or he was ghostly white saying "I VANT TO SUCK YOUR BLOOD!" So, to actually find out that vampires could be these awesome indestructible babes, was quite awesome. And look at the effect it had, there are like millions of more vampire stories being written because of this series. But after seeing to many interviews or Rob Patti ...more

A SAGA THAT STARTED IT ALL!! For me, the first book was really the best. The meeting of Edward and Bella were probably the best highlights of the whole story itself. Those were the spine-chilling times where the hairs of my body would shiver and the tension becomes better and better. The books that followed were also great but for me, it didn't much move me. Though it did but it wasn't that great unlike the first book where I went crazy! The part where I disliked the most was when Bella was preg ...more
I had a YA Literature professor who reffered to some books as "potato chip books". Meaning that, they taste really good, you cant put them away, and you always hunger for more. But once you have finished the "chip bag" so to speak, you didnt really get any nutrients out of it.
Thats how I felt about this series. Its crazy addicting, and I loved it. Its one of the first series of books I ever completed. I read each one of them in a day or two.
I always want to go back for more, but at the end of th

The Twilight Saga is undeniably one of my guilty pleasures. I know there are many people out there who have called the entire saga stupid, and there are many parts of each of these books (and the movies) where I could see where they were coming from. I would also never claim that Bella Swan/Cullen is in any way the best fictional role model for girls. But it is entertaining, and kind of romantic. I think Breaking Dawn is the very best of the four volumes, and Renesmee, the daughter of Edward and ...more

This is the second time I've read this complete series

The first time as for many I had to wait for each book to come out...waiting to see what Bella would do and hoping that she would choose Jacob (yes I was team Jacob, who wouldn't want a warm wolf to cuddle with)....
This time there was no waiting and I the outcome....but it was like reading them all new again...I could not stop...
I read the first in a day...the next one in a day...the third one in day and half and the last one took me two days

The Twilight Saga Trilogy was the first book series that I was really able to get into. I have read each of the books at least two-three times in my lifetime and they still don't get old to me. I think the story portrayed by Stephanie Meyer is a really good concept for readers and something good to build on. The struggle throughout the series is having to chose between what everyone else thinks is best for you and what you want and you desire. This concept is one that we all struggle with at cer ...more
I read the series back in 2008 and totally loved it. I can't stand Bella Swan and evrything she represents, though. I kept rolling my eyes at her clumsiness.

And the movie? God, what insipid actress. She only has two expressions on her face. I didn't like the Edward they chose for the movie, either. For some reason, I couldn't see him as the Edward described in the book.

But I loved Jacob in print and on screen!

I loved the Twilight saga because I became inmersed in the vampire world. I dig Meyer
Kat Norwood
I was pleasantly surprised when I pick up this first book of the twilight saga. I fell in love with Stephanie Meyer's interpretation of vampires and the romance between two characters meant to be yet not meant to be. Intertwine with friendships, enemies, and magical creatures its whole world with each person playing an important part that I easily get lost in once I crack open the book. I love Bella's point of view and relate to her. I was even more amazed when she added Jacobs point of view in ...more

I was introduced to this series from my friends in high school. Thought the first book was okay but thought it could have been better! But then I continued the series and fell in love with it! This is the book series that made me become an avid book reader and explore the different genres and writing styles each author portrayed in each book! For this series, I thought the last book was the best because it drew the perfect conclusion to a happy forbidden love story! Kudos to Stephanie Meyer!
I've read all 4, plus Bree Tanner. I loved ALL of them! The Twilight series is very addicting and easy to fall in love with. You are instantly attracted to the relationship between Edward and Bella. It certainly isn't one you'll forget any time soon!

I remember running to the store every time the next book came out. And, should there be any more in the future I'm sure I'll be doing the same thing!

Check out Edward and Bella's everlasting love, you won't regret it!
Josie Bahr
Read them all quite a bit ago (though I will confess I haven't read "The Short Life of Bree Tanner") and I thought they were really good books. I think the hype surrounding them has really turned me off to them for awhile now. I am probably one of the few who actually liked how Breaking Dawn turned out. I like how she wrapped everything up. Overall, I really enjoyed the books.
Kim Miller
I received this gift set from a dear friend and it has been a constant companion. Whenever I want to revisit Forks, all I need to do is grab the first book in the series from the beautiful covered case and I'm transported back there once again. A beautiful gift set that I would highly recommend for the Twilight fan in your life!
Must reads hands down!!! The books are far more intense than watching the movies period! I enjoyed all of them very much and I even plan on reading them again someday, but before that day comes I'll have my daughter read them so she can be a part of an awesome series that took place while she was still to young :)

I love the Twilight Saga and have re-read the books several times. I am glad that Stephenie Meyer came out with the Bree Tanner book as well. I will probably continue the read the books as long a I can. I would really like the if Stephenie Meyer did finish Midnight Sun!

The saga that started my obsession with reading. I don't think I need to write much about it, except that I think Stephenie Meyer is an incredible storyteller. I feel it's more appropriate for older teens and up.
Lulu Obaditch
Set in rainy Forks, Washington, this book is all but boring. Stephenie Meyer paints a beautiful scene for the reader throughout these amazing four books. She keeps the reader captivated and wanting to know more about the story’s main characters (Edward, Jacob, and Bella). While some may think that the idea of a vampire, human, werewolf love story is ridiculous, this is worth reading. Meyer has created a wonderful and thrilling love story, while also making it interesting and original. After you ...more
The movies are pretty good but they're nothing compared to the books. I really like Stephenie Meyer's way of writing and it is kind of more fun to imagine the characters rather than see actors and actresses interpreting them.
I'm not ashamed to say I finished this complete saga in less than four days. Many people regard these books as worthless, but it piqued my interest and I ended up devouring it in short span of time. I loved it.
