You see that one little star? It’s there because I can’t give this series a 0 stars, if I could, I would.

So I’m finally reviewing The Twilight Saga. Ugh, honestly I’d rather not because I know this will make me even more angry about these books, but I had to say my opinion on them. So if I sound angry in this review…. It’s probably because I am.

So let’s get started, shall we?

First of all, I’d like to say that yes, I did love these books the first time I read them, 3 years ago, I was kind of a f

See this review and more on The Moonlight Library!

In Twilight, Bella goes insane when her mother re-marries and ships her off to live with her absent father. In trying to cope with this, Bella imagines a world where she is the centre of attention from every boy in school, especially the hottest, most desirable Edward Cullen. But Edward isn’t just the most desirable guy, no: he’s also a vampire, and sheer coincidence, Bella’s blood sings to him. This should be a problem, because Edward’s supposed

Reviewing The Twilight Saga is a nearly unwinnable battle. If you admit to enjoying it, you run the risk of being branded an idiot. Luckily I have loads of experience with people telling me I'm an idiot, so I'm cool with it.

Let me paint a picture for you and maybe you'll understand how this little series came to garner such a high rating from me. I read all four of the Twilight novels back-to-back (to back to back) over the co

These are the worst bunch of books I've ever read (they're almost as terrible as that godawful The Hunger Games series). Mind you, I'm sure that Twilight is really important and amazing to some readers. In my opinion though, it was just bizarre.

This book was by far the best book i have ever read. Usually i dont find any interest in reading, but when i started Twilight i couldn't put it down. Ever since i read the Twilight series i've started reading on a regular basis. Even though i've read all the Twilight books i know that i will continue reading them over and over again and never get tired of them. I've told all of my friends about this book and they have read it and enjoyed it just as much as i did.

The final edition of Anuradha, Stop Using the Word Rebuttal. The previous four (yes, I wrote four more of this shit) parts of this ramble may be found in my reviews of Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.

I repeat, I'm only posting this because I read this article. I'm literally only refuting the points mentioned in this, nothing else. I don't like comparison, but if the other party does it, be sure that I will respond.

I feel like I'm being generous with my two stars. Writing? Overwrought. Plot? Sooo thin. Characters? Mostly unlikeable (or forgettable). Misogyny and patriarchy? Slathered on with a spackle knife. Thinly veiled hopes to compare her stories to "Romeo and Juliet" and "Wuthering Heights"? Meyer, c'mon. Mormon subtext? Go read storey321's review here: http://stoney321.livejournal.com/3171... because I will never top that.

These book are a shame to literature. One day, I can only hope and pray, this Saga will be laughed at in sheer disgust and mocked, and all who said that it was the "best and most romantic book ever" will be mocked as well. If your looking for gushy, teenager romance junk, than these are the books for you. If you want something truly romantic, characters that actually have personalities, and a plot that dousnt make you cringe and want to stab yourself, than don't even glance at these "books".

How this series was ever published is a complete mystery to me. How this became a BESTSELLER is just stupid.
I could rant all day but lets start at the so-called main character. Bella Swan is not the kind of strong female character that I like to see. In fact she's the complete opposite. She spends the entire series whining, sulking and just overall being useless (when she's not unconscious). What kind of a main character is she that when her "boyfriend" leaves she becomes a living zombie and sim

Thanks to a bet (involving things I would rather not disclose) I had to read the entire Twilight Saga (all four books). I accomplished the feat in four days back to back (no DNF option). I already had the books on my TBR pile, but I kept finding excuses not to read them. And I was right to dawdle.

Instead of writing the review for each and every book in this "saga", I decided to put all my eggs in one basket, so to speak, and write only one review, listing only the three major gripes.

I used to think these books sounded stupid and refused to read them, making fun of anyone who did. However, when my nineteen-year-old self got dumped a few years ago and I was looking for a distraction, I decided "you can't knock it till you try it, right?" I read the whole series front to back in 4 days (which speaks more to the lack of complexity of this series than it does to my reading abilities) and here's my verdict:

This series is about as entertaining as reading a twelve-year-old girl's d

So there is a Japanese manga adaptation of the series and I need it ASAP. I may not be a Twilight fan, but I am a fan of manga. Sometimes, I even read bad manga because it is fun. There is only a level up to which a bad story can annoy the reader. If it gets any worse, it becomes funny. I go pretty fast from, "What the heck am I reading. It's making me so irritated, I want to tear this book." to "LOL, the author actually thought this would work." I know this one is going to be hilarious.

This shouldn't even be called a book. It is horrid. It should be illegal.
I'm not just saying this because it's a bad book (which it is) but because it's such a bad influence. The message of this book (given out by one putrid Bella Swan)is that a girl is useless without her boyfriend.
Honestly it's all Bella's fault, I mean when Edward leaves her she crawls up on the ground and is depressed for, like, half a year. She only gets better when she gets another man in her life, Jacob Black (canine shap

I am going to clump all the books into one review even though I preferred the first and 3rd books to the other 2. I enjoyed Breaking Dawn until I read the reviews about how dissapointed everyone was with the book...saying it was too perfect. I heard in Utah there is a group of ladies who have thought less of their husbands after reading about Edward and how perfect he is...a gentleman and handsome etc. Please! He's a vampire. I thought Breaking Dawn ended just how I wanted it too. Yes, there wer ...more

The story is not worth much, though I must admit 5 years ago I was completely crazy about these books. Since I am not a fan of the triangle or whatever it was between Edward-Bella-Jacob, I always liked Alice, Emmett, Carlisle etc.
Even today, I do like some of the characters in the series and there are bunch of my hostel buddies with whom I bonded and became quite good friends because of these books/movies so yeah, this story will always have special place in my heart.
Hence, 3 stars! ;) Otherwi

Before I talk about what many expect to hear from those who didn't like the series, I would like to say that this series actually had SOME moments of redeeming qualities. Alice is an amazing character. She is sweet, she is likeable and it's too bad she didn't become more of a main character. Jacob's character had a potential to be well-written and his tribe and perspective was sometimes interesting, but his likeability died for me in the 4th book for a reason that is a spoiler.
