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.

    I really enjoy this novel a lot, the main reason is that I like the way that the author writes this book and the techniques he uses to make me get more and more interesting into it and make me wanna read more and more as I go on. This novel is talking about an ordinary human and a vampire's love story, Bella, the human, moved to the gloomy town and meet Edward, the vampire, while studying in school. Edward couldn't look at Bella as a human, he could only see her as meal because Bella is very different to the vampire, her skin and everything just make her really tasty to the vampire. Even though the vampires can control themselves, but when they see Bella, they just can't control themselves, just because that Bella is that special, so Edwards want to protect her, but also want to eat her. After Bella knows Edwards' secret, she determined to uncover his dark secret. Then Bella fell in love with Edwards, and so did Edwards, but as Bellas get closer to Edwards, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risks. But it is too late for them both to turn back even though they want to, because they love each other a lot, and all they both want to do is to protect each other from harm and to also discover each other more. I really really enjoy this book, I would recommend people to read this novel, and I'm also excited for the next series.

          This book was so good! I don't even like Romance. But this one was great. So I encourage people who never read this book. Then they should try it out.

              "About 3 things I was absolutely positive. 1. Edward was a vampire. 2. There was a paper of him and I didn't know how dominant that part might be that thirst ed for my blood. 3. I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him" - Bella Swan
