Read in September, 2008

Many of those on my friends list have heard me talk about this book. Part of me was irritated by the writing and Bella's flat single, perspective look at Edward (gorgeous, angelic, golden eyes) while another part of me (maybe a throwback to my younger side) couldn't help but be sucked in like I was reading a guilty pleasure romance novel.

So the reason I gave this first one 3 stars is b/c the action at the end far overshadowed the angsty, immature romance and the not-so-great writing (otherwise it would have gotten a lower star value). Also--there is a part of me which remains convinced that it sounds like a seventeen year old, because it is narrated by a seventeen year old--not b/c Meyers can't actually write.
