When I first started reading books all I read was romance (Harlequin Romance). But then I discovered Stephen King and a whole world of different genre of books. I still like the romance part but I want more than just the romance. Stephanie Meyers has done just that with Twilight. Theres romance, vampires, werewolves and action.
Edward and Bella love each other in a way that they don’t have to speak to one another to know how the other feels. Edward’s family not only loves Bella for who she is but also because Edward loves her. They all have such a close bond with each other and a place in their hearts for others that they would give their own life to protect who ever is a part of their “family”. To be a part of their “family” you don’t have to be “blood” related. They believe that “you mess with one Cullen you’ve messed with the whole bunch”. The whole Cullen family especially Edward tolerates Jacob and Bella’s relationship. They understand that this is what Bella needs and that it has nothing to do with how she feels about Edward. They are more mature than most people that can’t see beyond their own feelings and never think about how other people feel. If you are looking for romance and a little something extra thrown in then you definitely need to read Twilight....more

Edward knows that something has happened to Bella. He calls her house and is told that Charlie has gone to a funeral. Believing that it is Bella’s funeral he decides to go to Italy to see the Volturi, vampires that can and will kill him if he provokes them. Alice sees in a vision what Edward is planning on doing. She tells Bella and they take off to Italy to stop him. The Volturi tell Edward that Bella must be changed into a vampire or die. No human can know that vampires exist. They return to Forks and the Cullen clan vote to change Bella into a vampire, Edward does not like this. Jacob reminds Edward about the treaty between the werewolves and vampires.
I love how Stephanie Meyer’s brings out the feeling of love that Edward and Bella share. Most people probably never find that kind of love in a lifetime much less have that person walk out on them. They never experience the pain of loosing the one that they are in love with. Edward and Bella don’t just love one another they are in love. Bella is one of those people that has a very good heart that feels things to the very depth of her soul. I would definitely recommend that you read New Moon and all of the Twilight novels. It is not only about vampires and werewolves but a love that hardly anyone ever experiences....more
