Yeah, there are thousands of reviews for Twilight. And even though this review of mine won't weigh in much, I'm still writing it for the heck of it.
3 stars means "I liked it". I really did, four years ago when Twilight was all the rage, and soon to become a movie. A friend of mine posted something about wanting an Edward Cullen as a boyfriend. So what kind of person - and bookworm - would I be if I wasn't even mildly curious about this book? I was then very surprised that my classmates, most of whom are reluctant readers, were lining up to read it.
I was ready to fall in love with Edward. And I did, for a while. (Rob Pattinson's portrayal was nothing like I imagined Edward to be, though). Edward had red hair and a playful smile (booya!), plays the piano (double booya!) and is very attentive to Bella (so attentive that he watches Bella sleep which I found really creepy even then). But still, I liked him. He's a hot, rich guy who noticed a plain-Jane Bella. It's wish fulfillment, man. I was totally hooked.
But I utterly disliked Bella, I resented having to read Twilight in her POV because she is so *makes a strangling motion*. I only read Twilight for the Edward parts, and Alice and Jasper. In fact, I hated Bella so much in New Moon that I didn't finish the book. Not even my love for Alice and Jasper would make me get through 3 more books in Bella's POV
. Besides, vampires have never really fascinated me.
So there you have it, I liked Twilight. It was fun while it lasted.
