Recommends it for: The extremely open minded
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.

So at lunch bre...more

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

...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.”

PREACH.

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...more

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...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...more

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

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

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

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...more

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

Where do I even begin?

I have read the books and watched all the twilight movies, at least 5 times. Each one of them. I don't think I could ever get enough of it because Stephenie Meyer is such a talented woman and the way she has written the books are splendid.

If you come across any of the books or even the movies, which are not as good as the books, READ IT! Because trust me, if you don't, you are missing out on something great.

I would happily read any other books if she wrote some because j...more

First, I have absolutely no problem with the people that like/love these books. Anything that gets people to read more is a plus for me. This is my (brief) opinion over the four books, which I've combined here (I could discuss them in more depth, but I'm behind on my reviews, so I'll keep it short.) This is just my opinion.

This more or less applies to the series as a whole.

I had no idea what I was getting into when I picked up this plotless book full of stereotypes (particularly the character...more

Although I'm not sure that this is the best written story, it is still a good read. While I find Bella to be such a wimp, and so in need of a man, at such a young age, it is still a beautiful story of love. Such a triangle of love, as young Bella is torn between two men, who wrap her into a world of the supernatural. She's in love with Edward, the vampire, and can't seem to be able to live without him. But, she's also in love with Jacob, the wolf. Though, her love for him isn't like her love for...more

Ok, twilight. I read them all and after that gave out my printed books to my friends who are interested in it.
Even as a non-native speaker myself, I find it speechless that the Stephenie's had a peculiar love for the word MUMBLE!! Can't count how many times this word popped out and seriously it is very annoying. Bella mumbled, Edward mumbled, nearly everyone mumbled in Twilight. Even my Chinese high school English teacher would say that in writing an article, you should try avoid using the sam...more

You can read my reviews of each book separately:
Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, & The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.

*Not impressed. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner is the exception to the series.
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.
Courtney Billiot
I have to say that I absolutely loved this saga when I first read it. I was fourteen at the time, and fell head-over-heels for a vampire/human romance. I realize now that the story is a little amateur-ish in some ways, but that doesn't even matter. The story itself is what got me reading bigger books and more books that were a part of series.
Emma Hansen
A simple easy read, good for young readers. The writing is simple and though the books look big they don't take long to read. Idea is good if a little basic but the execution is poor. Meyer struggled to write action so the books carry on about love triangles and skip over the interesting action scenes.

She is a very great author and I wish the series would have continued. I love this serie so very much that I have read it over and over! I think it would be great if she were to write another vampire shory.
I think it had a lot of suspense to it and she made the heroes and heroine the perfect way and put them together in the right way too bella was ment to be with Edward and Jake was ment to be with there daughter. And it had it's sexy moment too. I think it is Hot and sexy and suspenseful too!!!

#1 - Twilight. Phoenix girl (Bella) moves to Forks in Washington state to live with her divorced dad. Falls in love with Edward who she discovers is a vampire.
I had a hard time with this book, it was easy to read, but I did not like the weak female lead (Bella) who had to be saved numerous times contrasted with the super-everything-vampire.To be fair, the idea of
turning the vampire myths on its head was great! So while not the best book in the series, I didn't dislike it enough to make me stop...more
Megan
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...more

Twilight...what can I say.... I finally broke down and read the series (If I hadn't seen the terrible movies first I probably would have read them sooner. The movies are sooooo much worse) and I'll admit that I read it straight through and then promptly turned back to book 1 read the whole series again a second time. I also read all of the extras and the unfinished bit of her re-write of the first book from Edwards perspective, which is better than the original!

The books get progressively better...more

I loved reading these books! I had meant to read them way before the movie buzz started but I never did. I finally read them all after the first movie came out. I read them so fast I can't even believe it. I know there are a lot of criticisms of Meyers Vamps, but I love the characters and the developments of each of them. I love Edward for his flaws and his attributes, and I appreciate that Meyers created a man for modern men to live up to. Men can bash him for being too perfect or being soft, b...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

I was born in Connecticut in 1973, during a brief blip in my family's otherwise western U.S. existence. We were settled in Phoenix by the time I was four, and I think of myself as a native. The unusual spelling of my name was a gift from my father, Stephen (+ ie = me). Though I have had my name spelled wrong on pretty much everything my entire life long, I must admit that it makes it easier to goo...more

“Throughout the vast shadowy world of ghosts and demons there is no figure so terrible, no figure so dreaded and abhorred, yet dight with such fearful fascination, as the vampire, who is himself neither ghost nor demon, but yet who partakes the dark natures and possesses the mysterious and terrible qualities of both. — Rev. Montague Summers” 0 likes
