**spoiler alert** I loved this book, it had action and was never boring. i honestly don't think it should be in the romance section of the book store b**spoiler alert** I loved this book, it had action and was never boring. i honestly don't think it should be in the romance section of the book store because A. it is so much more than that and B. the little bit of romance it has its at the end.
I'm not one for romance novels, infact you wouldn't see me caught dead with one,I mean sure books with romance in them sure but the whole plot no way, but as I said it should not be there. I loved the pace, there was never a dull moment and the characers were likeable, honestly I would have killed that Reyad bastard way before Yelena did.
The one problem I had was at the end with Valek and Yelena, sure we were waiting for them to finally comfess there love for each other, but dude, having sex in a filthy prison cell with rats and disease is just gross, I mean sure I get the whole passion thing, but who the hell would do that.
But other than that, I loved it, i'm now reading th sequel magic study and am enjoying it....more
So I'm not going to lie, i really enjoyed twilight, it was something new and interesting. But after reading more books that were actually better, i reaSo I'm not going to lie, i really enjoyed twilight, it was something new and interesting. But after reading more books that were actually better, i realized that this whole series is completely ridiculous.
First of all everyone says they can identify with bella, er...why? Bella is a fine character for the first half of twilight then she becomes this annoying little school girl, in new moon was a serious over reaction, he is a guy for gods sake, some people say thats romantic i'd say its psychotic, she's so absorbed in edward that she doesnt care about anything its all edward edward edward, she was literally acting like a drug addict in rehab. in eclipse her addiction got worse, she added jacob, bella acted completely selfish and stupid. she wants to be a vampire so bad, rosalie tells her the cons and all she cares about is tanya liking edward, what the hell? at the end she says she loves jacob but she cant leave edward, CAN'T. even jacob says hes like a drug to her.
next, why does everyone love edward so much? okay he's really good looking, anything else? Oh yeah he's stalkerish, who doesnt love that? he's controling, love it. he's dead, awesome. he's as moody as a pmsing girl.
jacob used to be a cool character but now he's so arrogant and snarky, he has no real reason to like bella, i mean what he only is "in love" with her because she fake flirted with him to get information on the moody vampire that is edward. yeah that is a great reason to love someone.
stephenie meyer has said that she's not anti-feminist, but anti-human. uhhh, what kind of message is that sending? that you can only be a strong women if youre a mythical creature.
honestly i dont get why its such a big fanbase, but if youre an overly romantic teenage girls will and do love it.
this book is set in new york in 1906, the plot was good although it is a bit slow most of the time, the flash backs were a bit confusing. The story isthis book is set in new york in 1906, the plot was good although it is a bit slow most of the time, the flash backs were a bit confusing. The story is about Mattie Gokey, she lives on a farm and loves books and writing and everything literature. she lives in a town where you dont go to school past the sixth grade and get married at sixteen. it may be the modern girl in me saying this but I cringed throughout the whole book because of how awful it was back then. The writing was real and well researched, i liked it but it doesnt make my top ten. its a good read if you want to read something about a strong, smart girl trying to make her way to get a higher education. ...more

I read this book in September of last year, in my "death faze". The book starts out when Miles a teenage boy with little to no friends is a few day away from going to a boarding school in Alabama. When he goes there he is fast friends with his roomate and his friends. One of them being Alaska the hottest girl Miles has ever seen. with witty humor and heart breaking scenes. This book deserves all its praise. Mils/Pudges obsession with last words is a giant metaphor for all of life, making us wonder ho we will get out of this labyrinth....more
Okay this was the book that got me reading, I loved this, LOVED. But after reading better literature I realize that this book isn't all it's cracked uOkay this was the book that got me reading, I loved this, LOVED. But after reading better literature I realize that this book isn't all it's cracked up to be. Bella is so freaking annoying, I mean seriously she wants to become a vampire for a guy. Now a lot of people find that romantic, guess what? It's creepy and a little bit sick.
Next, the only thing Edward has is his looks and his music, that is all, other than that he is a total douche. He stalks Bella, I don't care what people say going into a girls room to watch her sleep is considered stalking, as is randomly watching her, and following her to Port angeles, which I guess was a good thing considering what happened.
Now the writing was good, Stephenie does know how to put a story together, I found her characters well developed,just not likeable.
I honestly don't see why every teenage girl and some middle aged women, find Edward so remarkable, he's pretty much every brooding hero with a dark past in every romance novel. What makes him so different?
There are some good points, I found the other vampires interesting, although the villain really had no motive except that he's evil, oh wow where have I heard that before?
It is a good read nonetheless, I just don't understand the phenomenon, it's no Harry Potter. ...more
