Welcome to my feature, Pastime Pleasures all about books I have loved and adored and were published over five years. Today is the turn of Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.
With that huge announcement last month (or was it the month before??) that Midnight Sun, Twilight from Edward’s perspective, was going to be released in August I thought that it was high time that I had a reread.
I remember at the time being slightly snobby about this book. Like who really cares for Vampires? And maybe I was slightly older that the intended audience. All I remember is that my sister and she friends were obsessed. So with that six year age gap, I had every right to be a snob and not read the baby book.
Oh my days, what a mistake I made! I saw the build up for this book as took my sisters copy to read. As a bookworm I had to see what the fuss was about. From the beginning I was hooked. And I need to know the answer to all the secrets.
And since then I have had to read the book every couple of years or so. So what makes it so good? At the time Edward was definitely swoonworthy, especially if you forgot about him being all glittery and a 100 years old. And Belle was slightly annoying
But put you put those things aside, Twilight is a very entertaining read. It is light and fluffy. And really quite a quick read. There is a romance. And an element of danger from the Vampires. Who really you just want to know better. Let’s be honest Jasper and Alice are pretty awesome.
This is a book that is better than the movie, so for all you haters out there, try the book first.
