I first heard about Twilight in 2008-2009 when all the ladies in the email department at my corporate job had the book on their desk and was reading it. Finally, after tired of seeing it, I decided to buy the book myself and see what all the hoopla was about. OMG, when I read the first book Twilight. I was in awe. I LOVED IT! Then I read New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn soon after. I was not a huge fan of New Moon or Eclipse but I LOVED the finale of the series Breaking Dawn. See I grew up reading V.C. Andrews books, aka “Flowers in the Attic” which they did a movie about in the 80’s and Sweet Valley High Books. Plus I have never read books about Vampires before. Very much less books about vampires and werewolves. After I had read all the books, I was excited to go and see the first installment at the movie theater at the midnight opening showing, and omg the girls were going crazy. But it was fun!
The other two movies for New Moon and Eclipse I waited till they came out on video and I saw Breaking Dawn Part 1 a week or so after opening and the same with Breaking Dawn Part 2. But I did go to the Walmart DVD Midnight Release Party when Breaking Dawn came out. Im sad that the story is now over. :/ I may re-read the books again and do a movie marathon as well, idk.
Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 was just AMAZING, I was in tears! What I thought was really happening really didn’t happen, thank goodness! I know it doesnt make sense what I am saying but you have to watch it to know what I am talking about and I aint going to put any spoilers in this post. I love it though when Bella gets mad at Jacob for imprinting on Renessme and says and I quote “You nicknamed her Nessie, after the lochness monster?!” lmaoooooooooo! I loved watching the relationship between Bella and her daughter Renessme. It just reminded me so much of Liz and myself. <3
I love the love story between Bella Swan and Edward. Even though there was a love triangle between Bella, Edward and Jacob. When Jacob ended up imprinting on Bellas daughter Renessme proved that Edward Cullen was Bellas True Love and she was not meant for Jacob.
My favorite character aside from the main characters was Alice Cullen, so sweet and happy and could see the future. She has always been a good friend to Bella as well. Carlisle Cullen was also a great leader amongst the vampires who hunted animals instead of humans and saved peoples lives as a doctor and turned them into vampires if they could not be saved.
I will forever love the Twilight series story <3
