Romance and Creatures
Twilight is the most recent book I have read. What I liked about the book was that I was able to relate to the story the writer was telling. The book is not only about the vampires and werewolves in the story, but the love between to young people. The love between the two characters is what I was drawn to in the story. It is a love that most say shouldn’t even happen. Ms. Malee’s blog also describes a love that was not suppose to happen in the book called Red Cat.
The book takes place mostly in a town called Forks, Washington, where a young girl named Bella Swan is the new girl in town and she meets a handsome mysterious boy at school named Edward Cullen. His family that consist of two sisters and two brothers, who are very beautiful, are all vampires. Edward and Bella fall deeply in love with each other, but it is a unforbidden love because Edward’s big secret of being a vampire. He struggles with his desire to drink her blood, but he loves her and doesn’t want to hurt her. Bella doesn’t care that he is a vampire and wants to become one too. The love for each other is strong and powerful which plays out with the other books as the story unfolds. Some people seem to love to read where a human becomes a different creature in the book, like David of Sasun blog where he read The Heart of a Dog “a well-respected surgeon and his unorthodox operation that transforms a street dog into a real life human”
Stephenie Meyer wrote the series, she lives in Arizona where she is a stay at home mom of three sons and married. From there she started writing the series and went to many publisher when finally Little, Brown and Company took the chance to publish it. The book was a easy read that kept me reading and not wanting to put it down.
