Recommended to Rachel by: the guilty shall remain nameless.
Read in January, 2009

I cannot believe I wasted three days reading this book. I knew about the Twilight's plot before I started reading and wasn't impressed, but a lot of my friends liked the book and I figured I'd give it a shot. I mean, why say you hate something if you haven't read it?

Well. I've read it and I'm still not impressed. It's basically 498 pages that describe Bella's clumsiness and dependency and Edward's beautiful eyes. Also? You'd think that after 498 pages I could believe their love, but I didn't. It was so forced and the dialogue was cheesy ('Do I dazzle you?' Come on. Really? Dear Lord...). I could rant forever about how the author treated vampires and romance, but it's all been said already and a lot of the other one-star reviews can phrase the displeasure better than I can.

The sad thing is? SMeyer CAN tell a story. I would've loved to hear more about the Cullens themselves, especially Carlisle and Alice, but the bad overshadowed the good.

Needless to say, I'm not spending the $10 on New Moon.
