The second book in the Twilight Saga.

It begins with Bellas birhtday. She now is one year older than Edward and that fakt haunts Bella in her dreams and life. Alice ofcourse throws a birthday party for Bella, but when she by misstake cuts her finger, hell break lose. Jasper throws himself at Bella and Edward has to defend her against his own family. Because of that incident Edward decides to leav Bella and never come back. Bella is miserable, she feels this hole in her chest and there is nothing she can do about it. When Bella finds out that if she does reckless things she can hear Edwards voice, she finds a couple old motorcykles and gets Jacob to fix them. Bella and Jacob became really good friends wich developes into something else on Jacobs side. When Edward thinks that Bella is dead he decides to infuriate the Voulturi and go outside in the sun and show himself to the people, Bella is the only one that can stop him.

I really like how Bella and Jacobs relationship developes during the book, but still, there is a lot of pages when nothing happens and you get bored reading the book. And after all this time I can’t understand how Edward was thinking, just leaving Bella alone in Forks after evreything that happend in the first book.

So summary; the beginning is slow, the middle is great and the end is kind of lacking.

But there is some great things in this book, my only problem really is the edditing. But the Romeo-Juliett story is great. The forbidden love, the dilemma in the books with the whole human-vampire relationship is that either way the human becomes a vampire or God forbidd the vampire somehow becomes human again. So it’s easy, turn the human to a vampire. But then there is the whole blood drinking-immortal-you-are-going-to-want-to-kill-your-family-and-friends thing 😉

Favourite quotes; “Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. …And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything.”

“What a marshmallow. You should hold out for someone with a stronger stomach. Someone who laughs at the gore that makes weaker men vomit.”

“His skin was a pretty colour, it made me jealous.
Jacob noticed my scrutiny.
What?” he asked, suddenly self-conscious.
“Nothing. I just hadn’t realised before. Did you know, you’re sort of beautiful?”
Once the words slipped out, I worried that he might take my implusive observation the wrong way.
But Jacob rolled his eyes. “You hit your head pretty hard, didn’t you?”
“I’m serious.”
Well, then, thanks. Sort of.”
I grinned. “You’re sort of welcome.”

“They call her my singer—because her blood sings for me.”

Twilight – Stephenie Meyer

Twilightbook

The book is about Isabella Swan who moves from bright and sunny Phoenix to the small and rany town named Forks. There she meets the hot, mysterious and intellegent Edward Cullen. Bella is mesmerized about Edward from the moment he steps into the cafeteria. The thing is, Edward is a vampire and he can read every ones minds, eccept Bellas. Edward is intigured to why he can’t read Bellas mind and he soon falls inlove with her. But being humand and inlove with a vampire isn’t so easy. Soon there comes other vampire clans to Forks, and they want Bella.

Okay, I love this book. It’s the typical shy and kinda booring girl meets hot and swoon worthy guy and they fall in love. But soon problems starts to show up, and the question is, will they make it?

I like the love story in this book, and I like that the book never makes you bored. It is 442 pages but from the first moment you open the book to the end things happen. The book is a little bit unreal, I mean, Edward falls inlove with Bella even before he knows her, and Bella doesn’t freak out just a little bit. No, she’s cool with the whole vampires-exists thing. The book would be better if it also had some more sarcasm och witty remarks. I love Bellas relasionship with her father Charlie. Even when you don’t get to know so much about it, you can still see that Charlie loves Bella a lot and the other way around.

I still love the book, maby that’s because I’m a sucker for romance 😉

Favourite quotes: “If  I could dream at all it would be about you. And I’m not ashamed of it.”

” And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.”

“What if I’m not the superhero. What if I.”
