Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

As most of my close friends know, I love suspense-horror-fantasy-romance books/movies. Mostly about vampires or zombies killing people or people killing vampires. I just so love them. Usually the ones we see have so much action however this one wasn't like any other vampire movie we see onscreen.
If you are looking for something like blade, van helsing, underworld, well you would definitely hate this movie. A friend was complaining that she got bored watching the movie as it had nothing like the expected killings. But the movie offered something different, should be categorized as romance too.
So i got interested checked for the books and couldn't find them anywhere! So i immediately searched the www and it took me weeks to get good copies of free ebooks. The series is absolutely amazing, kept me up until midnight (considering i was still pregnant while reading the series).
Oh yeah of course, I also bought all the four books, re read them and still couldn't forget my edward cullen. So what i was trying to say was, i loved the series. Seriously i think of all the series i have read, nothing could compare. Looking back at my all time favorites, my Lord of the Rings (aragorn - arwen love story) and Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice can now be considered as my 2nd and 3rd respectively .

Hey an update, they just started filming New Moon, and it would be shown in November can't wait! Oh i have to mention, of all the four books, New Moon's the least one i like, the most boring maybe because I'm on team Edward all the way. I hope they make the movie better than the book. The best i think - hmm still Twilight and then Eclipse. Breaking Dawn was a bit something, i don't even know if i liked it or not. It was funny though especially the bond formed between Rose and Jacob, very funny.


Bella Swan moves from Phoenix, Arizona to live with her father in Forks, Washington to allow her mother to travel with her new husband, a minor league baseball player. After moving to Forks, Bella finds herself involuntarily drawn to a mysterious, handsome boy, Edward Cullen. She eventually learns that he is a member of a vampire family who drinks animal blood rather than human. Edward and Bella fall in love, but James, a sadistic vampire from another coven, is drawn to drink Bella's blood. Edward and the other Cullens defend Bella. She escapes to Phoenix, Arizona, where she is tricked into confronting James, who tries to kill her. She is seriously wounded, but Edward rescues her and they return to Forks, having killed James.

New Moon

Edward and his family leave Forks because he believes he is endangering Bella's life. Bella falls into a deep depression, until she develops a strong friendship with werewolf Jacob Black. Jacob and the other werewolves in his tribe must protect her from Victoria, a vampire seeking to avenge her mate James' death, by killing Bella. A misunderstanding occurs, and Edward believes Bella is dead. Edward decides to commit suicide in Volterra, Italy, but he is stopped by Bella, who is accompanied by Edward's sister, Alice. They meet with the Volturi, a powerful coven of vampires, and are released on the condition that Bella be turned into a vampire in the near future. Bella and Edward are reunited, and she and the Cullens return to Forks.


The vampire Victoria (James's mate from Twilight) has created an army of "newborn" vampires to battle the Cullen family and murder Bella. Meanwhile, Bella is impelled to choose between her relationship with Edward and her friendship with Jacob. Edward's vampire family and Jacob's werewolf pack join forces to successfully destroy Victoria and her vampire army. In the end, Bella chooses Edward's love over Jacob's and agrees to marry him.

Breaking Dawn

Bella and Edward are married, but their honeymoon is cut short when Bella discovers that she is pregnant. Her pregnancy progresses rapidly, severely weakening her. She nearly dies giving birth to her and Edward's half-vampire-half-human daughter, Renesmee, but Edward injects Bella with his venom to save her life by turning her into a vampire. A vampire from another coven sees Renesmee and mistakes her for an "immortal child". She informs the Volturi, as the existence of such beings violates vampire law. The Cullens gather vampire witnesses who can verify that Renesmee is not an immortal child. After an intense confrontation, the Cullens and their witnesses convince the Volturi that the child poses no danger to vampires or their secret, and they are left in peace by the Volturi.
