Bella is a perfectly ordinary girl… until she meets Edward. Edward is no ordinary high school student; he is a vampire. Follow the series as Bella and Edward develop their relationship and face immortal enemies together!
Alice – With small stature and feminine tastes, it’s easy to underestimate Alice. I love her intelligence and devotion to her family. I think she’s the closet thing to a feminist in this series.
“You nicked-named my daughter after the Lock Ness Monster!”
I’ll be honest – there were NOT many lines I liked in this book. I can’t like the romantic lines, because taken out of context, they make the Edward-Bella relationship seem healthy, and it is so not. This line is kind of random, but also kind of hilarious. Because we all know that despite how much effort parents put into their children’s names, they always get nicknamed.
Is this worth a book hangover?
I was pulled in by the story, and connected well enough by Book 3 to want to finish the series. However, I wasn’t satisfied with the ending. I give this a meh at best.
Fun Author Fact
Some of Stephanie’s characters are, presumably, named after her family members . Three of her sibling are named Seth, Emily and Jacob.

If you appreciate the Twilight world, but want something with a slightly better message, I suggest reading Beautiful Creatures by Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia.
