I watched the movie a hundred times before I got my hands on the book. No matter what everybody says, the book was so much better than the movie. Because, duh, try fitting a three hundred plus pages novel into a two hour film. Anyway, I was never a fan of vampires before. In Twilight, Meyer introduced a new idea about vampires. Vampires that are inhumanly beautiful and drink animal blood to survive. And glitters. Yup, they don’t go bye bye in the sun, they freaking glitter!
I can’t help but fall in love with Edward Cullen too. He’s just perfect that way, even if he’s hell bent on draining Bella. I think it’s cliché to have the forbidden love concept, but Ms. Meyer seems to take the route in an interesting way. A vampire and a human falling in love will surely face a lot of obstacles right? Approval from the vamp family, a coven of blood-thirsty vamps, a tribe of suspicious Quileute, and a chief policeman for a father? Who says falling in love was easy?

The hottest love has the coldest love.
Having a vampire for a boyfriend will never be easy. He’ll always be extra careful with you because the faintest lost of self-control might be your death. Edward refuses to acknowledge the thought of ‘changing’ Bella. There’s nothing more Bella want but to live forever with Edward. Meyer continued Bella and Edward’s forbidden love with new problems to face. A vengeful vampire was set on killing Bella while the Quileute werewolves promised her protection and a trip to the Volturi – the royalty/monarch of the vampires.
In this second book, (and movie) Twihards are split into two teams: Team Edward or Team Jacob. Jacob Black turned werewolf with a six-pack abs. Hotness aside, Bella was now caught in a love triangle. You can see the kind of love that you’ll want for yourself in this book. The kind of love that leaves you breathless and wanting for more. That somehow it gets better and better no matter how long it’s been. Yeah, this book just makes me want to replace Bella all over again.

Edward and Bella just prove how strong their love is. They manage to overpower a diabolical vampire, outsmart the royalty of vampires, and revisit the treaty with the werewolves. As normal as they want things to be, with Edward throwing college applications every now and then, Bella still felt that the other piece of her is still with Jacob Black. Added to that, they’ve got a new problem brewing in Seattle.
In the third installment of the series, the love triangle between Edward, Bella and Jacob will be tested now that they’re all in equal ground. Will Bella continue to pledge her love with Edward knowing that as she undergo ‘change’ she has to leave everyone she loves behind? Wanting blood more than Edward when the times come? And being forever frozen at eighteen, nineteen? Or will she take Jacob’s hand to be able to form a family? Grow old and die but never having to experience the excruciating pain of the venom for immortality?
Join Bella as she find her way to the survival of her family and her heart.

I’ve been dreading for this book. The last book for the series! It’s also the longest so everything’s out in the open now. At first, I don’t want to read it yet because I don’t want it to end. But I can’t wait to see how it will end at the same time! The book was split in three parts. Parts 1&3 was told in Bella’s POV, while Part 2 was told in Jacob’s.
The wedding and their long awaited honeymoon is finally here! I think it’s safe to say that Twihards were waiting for this (honeymoon) for a while now. However, such actions faced consequences. The Olympic Coven have to face the wolves, the Volturi and even their distant cousin Irina. Will Bella and Edward finally have their HEA of forever? Or will it be such a short-lived? And where will Jacob stand with all these obstacles?
Breaking Dawn is filled with surprises and revelation you wouldn’t dare imagine. We’ll encounter covens across the globe and having the world of vampires ripped open to be prod and re-written. Brace yourselves for heartwarming and gut-wrenching booby traps Stephenie Meyer hid all over the book.
P.S. Kleenex is a must when watching the movie.
