Jemma asked:

Should I read this or not? Watched the movie and thought the book would be amazing, too. But reading all the 1-star reviews kinda scare me. My mom said she would get me the whole series- she watched all the movies- but not sure if I should get it or not.

Madison This book is great. You should totally read it. I gave this book 5 stars. Victoria, That is not what the book is about. It is about true love, and vampires. Who else is one Edwards side? I love him. So hot.
Geneva Millikan I read this first book and never got involved. Unless you like shallow romance plots with no meaning, you will regret reading these. It is not something you can erase from your memory, and now you have been warned......
Autumn I rated Twilight 5 stars. If you like love stories that aren't weird, you absolutely have to read it! I read all of the books in 4th and 5th grade and loved them! In my opinion you should read them!!
Victoria🌻 Twilight is decent, but the message it sends is really not good. All the book says is that you can't make it without a man. If you want a really good series, try Throne of Glass, the Harry Potter books, or Percy Jackson. They are my top rated, and they all have romance like this, though a much better and less shallow plot.

Hailey The books are 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.33333333333333333337% better than the movie. Although Robert is ssssssssuuuuuuuuuuuupppppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrr cute
Mae Anne Personally I am with the majority...Blech! Despite this it doesn't mean you can't read it! Read it and enjoy it, and don't feel guilty for being different.
Vanessa B If you liked the movies there's a good chance you may end up loving the books. If your unsure if you want to own the series you can just borrow the books from the library and if you end up liking them you can always buy them. :)
cmtan cmtan You should honestly read them! Like, right now! They are amazing. Forget. The. one. star. reviews. I gave them five stars each. My favorite of the movies are Eclipse and Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2. But, i read them first. Read them as fast as possible! You shall thank me later.
JasmynWasFlowers Just... try it out.
Maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't.

If you liked the movie, you'll probably like it- most people agree that the book is better then the movie, so you'll probably find it enjoyable.

It depends more on your taste then the book itself, to be completely honest with you.

Actually, most things are like that.

Anyway, just try it and find out. Who knows, maybe it'll be really fun! :]
Maddie Ofc! This was the best book of the century!
Lilly if your into horror-romance go for it. The books way better than the movie
Sophia yes you should, Twilight is one of my favorite books and i feel that people are too hard. It does start off kinda slow but you should give it a try. It does pick up about 100 pages in though
Eman Ahmed i rated it 5 stars. i could give it 10000000000 stars if possible. i would advise u to read them if u r into fantasy.
Bill Durrenberger You should try the sample. Maybe borrow it from a friends before you spend money on them. Even go to a bookstore and find it and read some before buying it. Deicde for yourself
Natasha Morales Its a good book for little teenage girls. I liked it, though I couldn't go back to reread it.
Jeanaya Adams You have read this because I am just 10 in the 5 grade is awesome
Ella I loved it when I was 11-14.
Now I'm 21 and re-read the series again.
The books are not bad, but in my opinion they might be more interesting for teenagers, than for adults. Also for me, Meyer leaves to many plot holes open and she contradicts herself quite a lot of times.
brooke Yes you should read it
Summer Brodersen The books are way better than the movies. I assume all the one star reviews are probably from people who don't like the story like the person above who basically stated they don't have a good purpose. If you enjoy the movies then you will enjoy the book. Stephanie Meyer is very well written and she is very good at character development even if people don't necessarily like the characters he provides.
Gréta K If you enjoyed the awful movies, you're gonna LOVE these books! They're seriously 10000x better than those waste of cinema budgets, and in my opinion, do not deserve the harsh critiques that everyone deems 'cool' to give. This is a very good, unique love story. Give it a try.
Cameron why did you watch the movie first?
y I've read the series many times, you should read them. You won't regret it
Ellie Kuhlmann Before I read the books I watched the third movie which got me to read the books. In my opinion Twilight is the best book money can buy.
