Well the first time i read the book was in the sumer of 2009. As it seems for most people i fell in love with Edward and could not put the book down. I would have to say that the Twilight saga was the best thing that ever happened to me. When reading i felt happy and content plus it was my getaway from the read world. Twilight became my favorite thing. I used to hate vampires and anything like that but i have learned to not be affraid of that. If yo want my opion i say the book is better than the movie and i hope that Mrs. Meyer writes more.
