I knew we were both in mortal danger. Still, in that instant, I felt well. Whole. I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pulsing hot and fast through my veins again. My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin. It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. I was perfect – not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place.
For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella could ever have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning…
Ok so this one the writing was a tad better than the first one.
But Bella is still as annoying as ever!
Edward is nuts, especially the whole part about him wanting to commit suicide by the hands of the Volturi if anything happens to Bella. That is just NUTS! then the fact that Alice ”sees” Bella die so Edward goes to the extreme and goes to Italy.
I did enjoy getting to see more of Jasper he is a great character.
So now about Edward leaving, maybe he should’ve stay gone and Alice should’ve stuck to her own business instead of coming back to Forks. Jacob is a much better fit for Bella. Wait scratch that, Bella doesn’t deserve someone like Jacob.
Like I said this book is a tad better than the first but it still sucks the same
About three things I was absolutely positive.
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him—and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be—that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
In the first book of the Twilight Saga, internationally bestselling author Stephenie Meyer introduces Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, a pair of star-crossed lovers whose forbidden relationship ripens against the backdrop of small-town suspicion and a mysterious coven of vampires. This is a love story with bite.
So doing a re-read of this one and I had to lower my stars to 3, I actually should rate it 2 stars. It is pretty horrible.
Bella is annoying as hell. She is just I don’t know, childish for lack of a better word.
Edward is overprotective.
Not in a good way either. He treats her like she is property. Women are not property. Nothings drives me more crazy!
The only characters I really liked was Alice.
Oh and don’t forget about Emmett!!
This book is seriously horrible. At first I was re-reading and thought it was just the movie that gave the book a bad rap, no unfortunately the book is no better than the movie sigh
It is not just the story line that is horrible it is the writing. The writing was “immature” I feel like maybe to me being on my way to 30 that maybe that is why. When I first read this I loved it but that was a long time ago. Now I find it childish and almost painful to read.
On the plus side, I am glad that is over!
