Staff Pick

Moving to a small, dreary town is enough to cause angst in any teen, but for Isabella Swan, angst is only the beginning. Soon she's falling in love with Edward, the quintessential dark, handsome guy, who just happens to be a vampire. This is the perfect pleasure read for the dusky days of fall. This series (the sequel is New Moon) will give you goose bumps.

Review-A-Day

"Twilight is fantastic. It’s a page-turner that pops out a lurching, frightening ending I never saw coming. It’s also the first book that seemed at long last to rekindle something of the girl-reader in me. In fact, there were times when the novel — no work of literature, to be sure, no school for style; hugged mainly to the slender chests of very young teenage girls, whose regard for it is on a par with the regard with which just yesterday they held Hannah Montana — stirred something in me so long forgotten that I felt embarrassed by it." Caitlin Flanagan, The Atlantic Monthly (read the entire Atlantic Monthly review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Isabella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Isabella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Isabella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knife — between desire and danger.

Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.

Review:

"[T]he portrayal of dangerous lovers hits the spot; fans of dark romance will find it hard to resist." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Meyer's description of the lovers' emotions is palpable, and readers will be drawn into the couple's spiraling dance, feeling the intense longing that comes from being a hair's breadth away from the thing you want most in the world." KLIATT

Review:

"Realistic, subtle, succinct, and easy to follow, Twilight will have readers dying to sink their teeth into it." School Library Journal

Review:

"[T]his dark romance seeps into the soul." Booklist

Review:

"For older teens, this is a predictable love story laced with adventure and vampirism." Hornbook Guide to Children

Synopsis:

The third book in the phenomenal New York Times bestselling series is now in paperback!

Calla has always welcomed war. But now that the final battle is upon her, there's more at stake than fighting. There's saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay's wrath. There's keeping her brother, Ansel, safe, even if he's been branded a traitor. There's proving herself as the pack's alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers' magic once and for all. And then there's deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is.

Synopsis:

As Shakespeare knew, love burns high when thwarted by obstacles. In Twilight, an exquisite fantasy by Stephenie Meyer, readers discover a pair of lovers who are supremely star-crossed. Bella adores beautiful Edward, and he returns her love. But Edward is having a hard time controlling the blood lust she arouses in him, because... he's a vampire. At any moment, the intensity of their passion could drive him to kill her, and he agonises over the danger. But, Bella would rather be dead than part from Edward, so she risks her life to stay near him, and the novel burns with the erotic tension of their dangerous and necessarily chaste relationship.

Some of my friends read this series and encouraged me to read it besides my doubts. I tried as much as I could to get interested in the book, but I got bored very easily and found myself staring at the books I had wanted to read. Honestly, I tried to read Twilight, but the story created no spark in me. I see why people like the book since it holds an exceeding amount of romance with a love triangle between a werewolf, vampire, and a human.

I love this! It was very enticing. I had seen the moving and I thought if the movie this good how is the book. I took crack at it and finished it too quick. I reread this story every time I can, because I love. My favorite series. I still haven't read the middle two. I cant seem to get them. I don't have the money or none of my libraries hold them which kind of suck, but any who. Yeah this book is just too great.
