Very sassy, smart writing. What a great idea for a book. It's original and funny with some bittersweet and laugh-out-loud moments. The characters are very well portrayed (I love Cassie! I think we share the same hair!).

I'm pretty sure both teens and adults are going to love this delightful novel.

I was looking for the cover of Rachel's Twilight book coz I was relly curious. :)

She described it as "a super-rare first edition.... A haunted looking Bella Swan stared out of the cover. She had deep melancholy eyes, a sharp black bob and one of those faces that followed you around the room. She looked terrified. A modern-day Mona Lisa minus the smile."

oh. Look. here it is: :)

An absolute MUST READ for any Twilight fan, a love triangle to rival A Midsummer Night's Dream. It's a wonderful story that's funny and irreverent, clever and absorbing. This is YA fiction at its best!

This was one of those random Kindle purchases that I make every once in a while when I come upon an ebook that simply intrigues me. I mean, come on, a book about a guy that decides to become Edward Cullen to win the girl? For the female Twilight fans, that is a MUST read if for no other reason than to find out how it goes! Plus, at a price like $2.99, it's simply too hard to resist.

I adore this book. Not only was the premise amusing and just too cute for words, but the characters were seemingly

Rachel is in love with Edward Cullen. Really, who wouldn't be? It's not like she's writing "Mrs. Edward Cullen" in her notebooks, or plotting horrible deaths for Bella Swan. It's just that Edward is so...well, "perfect" is the only thing that comes to mind. Real boys just can't measure up. Clive's been interested forever, but she just doesn't see him. Lewis would change his player ways for her, but she can't see past them. Only Edward will do, and that's just who Lewis intends to be. New hair, ...more

I was pleasantly surprised by this. I thought it would be all moody teenager thinks he's Edward Cullen smarming his way around moody Twilight girl. It's much better than that. It certainly has us guys pegged - we do ridiculous things to get girls and when they don't work it makes us go a bit crazy. It's original, funny (at the expense of the characters, not Twilight) and I totally related to the two boys - one over-thinks everything and the other completely misses the point of why girls are attr ...more

A friend on goodreads sent me this recommendation. I'm indebted to her. I went to and read a sample. I was hooked. I had to get this book but it was only available in Kindle format. I don't own a Kindle. I know, I know, it's hard to believe. Someone like me who loves to read doesn't own the latest and greatest reading tool. Call me old fashioned but I love to hold a book in my hand. This book wasn't out in paperback so I googled the title and author. Low and behold, it was available o ...more

This book was hilarious! Lewis lost is mind. All the other characters were sensible. Overall it is a nice story to read and I think would be enjoyable for any Twilight fan.

A quick entertaining read. Thanks to Jodi for the lend of the Kindle book!
I thought I was going to have this finished this yesterday, but I just couldn't. It wasn't even 10 o'clock and my eyes were dropping.
No-one could ever be Edward, she realised now.
But could he be her Edward?

At the beginning of the book, our main female protagonist, Rachel, mentions the first edition of Twilight which looks like this:


The only one I could find for sale at this very minute was one on a website called selling for £399.99. See here.

Definitely better than I expected! It was an addicting story and I snorted laughing at a couple parts. A bit cheesy and predictable at the end and the people I wanted together didn't end up together. Still a fun read for a Twilight fan.

This is one of the worst books that I've ever read! I thought that it was going to be fun and quirky, but it was poorly writen with a predictable plot and shallow, boring characters.

Looking back on it, I don't know why I thought a book that is dedicated to worshiping Twilight would be good.

The most ridiculous part of the whole novel was the fact that a steady, level header man, who also is a bit of man whore,(Lewis) would be interested in a book like Twilight and get obsessed with it. Towards t

The reader gets to know Rachel’s background before we meet best friend Cassie. Cassie talks Rachel into going to Bournemouth town centre on the premise that she will buy her another copy of Twilight.

While they are on the bus, the story moves to Lewis. The reader is immediately aware of his easy lifestyle and the lack of respect he shows for the females in his life. Forgetting to buy a birthday gift for his sister Olivia, he rushes off to Bournemouth town centre. The shops are closing at the end
Becoming Edward is a sweet story about a girl in search of “her Edward”. Anyone who enjoyed the Twilight Saga can probably relate to this sentiment. Finding traits and qualities in a guy that resembles Edward and his devoted, romantic, and mysterious ways.

In the book Rachael’s heart is desired by both Clive and Lewis, but when one of them plans to “become Edward”, getting lost in the idea of winning Rachael’s love through fantasy, things really begin to get interesting.

This was recommended to me by a friend and it wasn't what I was expecting - It was much, much better! I read it in an afternoon. It's not Shakespeare, but it's light, fluffy, funny and totally entertaining. Five stars, easy.

Not the most well-written books I've ever read, but still an entertaining read.
The sudden changes in perspective make it confusing and chaotic. The characters aren't THAT likeable, and we don't REALLY get to know what motivates them, - and where the heck are all the grown ups?!?
LOADS of references to the Twilight Saga, which is what makes it fun; it not only talks about, but also mimics the Twilight Saga. How many similarities can you find along the way? Personally I gave up counting - there whe

Let me just start off by saying I don't like Twilight. I didn't always start that way, either. When I first saw the hype, I was intrigued. A friend bought me book 1 and insisted I'd love it. Given my 14/15 year old penchant for poorly written fanfiction and YA literature, I figured I'd like it. But I didn't.

Don't get me wrong, it draws me in. Even New Moon, there was a perverse need to keep reading [after DNF-ing on my first try]. (And yes, this is as far as I've gotten). The story hooked me, t

On one of the days that I was on Twitter there was a tweet to get “Becoming Edward” by Faye Meredith for free on that day on Amazon. Intrigue by the title and reading the summary of the story I could not resist and ended up setting up the Kindle app on my devices and downloaded this freebie.

Days later after purchase (and after I had finished reading The 2nd book from the Hunger Games Trilogy, “Catching Fire”) I needed a quick break from that roller coaster ride and started to read this book. I h

Cover: 4 stars. I really liked how it is so simple but catches your attention anyway. And how the Title and Author really stand out. Excellent.

Okay. This was a good book. I wouldn't say 'OMG! READ THIS' But i wouldn't say not to read it. In fact i am just about to borrow this book to my sister and cousin after telling them what it's about. Okay, one other thing you should know about my sister and cousin is that; They. Don't. Read.

I read a lot of Young Adult books and am often not conscious of them being aimed at that target audience. However, I was very much aware that this book was aimed at older teenagers.

That said, it made for an amusing , light read.

Rachel is a young girl, living on a rough estate with an impoverished single Mother. We don't learn anything else about her Mother, or the estate that she lives on (I presume that it was only mentioned to show that she didn't have much money).

It wasn't the first time that Ihad read this book. Actually, the first time I read this book was on last year. I think it was on September. My first impression on the story was hilarious. It was a fun read, not boring. Faye Meredith never failed to depict on her story what it was like to be a Twilight fanatic, especially the magical feeling whenever reading Stephenie's book.

Becoming Edward was a very cute and uplifting story from start to finish. The romance between the two main characters (Lewi
