Seventeen-year-old Isabella Swan moves from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington and finds her life in danger when she falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen.
❚ “High-school student Bella Swan doesn’t expect life to change much when she moves from sunny Arizona to rainy Washington state. However it certainly does when she meets Edward Cullen a handsome but mysterious teen whose eyes seem to peer directly into her soul.
“Edward, as she discovers, is a vampire whose family does not drink blood, and Bella, far from being frightened, enters into a dangerous romance with whom she considers her immortal soulmate.”
About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him-and I didn’t know how potent that part might be-that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
❚ “Yes, I’m embarrassed to have put this on our reading list, but I just had to know what all the hype was about! Enough said.” – Nadine
❚ “Although this book is seemingly aimed at teens it is a surprisingly enjoyable read for adults. Easy to read with a tried and true vampire theme it is hardly a literary novel, however I didn’t want to put it down and even watched the movie.” – Jo
❚ “I can see why this book would be captivating to a teenage audience, and while it didn’t appeal to me so much, I am glad I have read it and know what all the fuss is about. Interesting to learn more about the author and her experiences in creating the Twilight brand.” – Rachel
