REVIEW | Twilight – Stephanie Meyer

I like the night. Without the dark, we’d never see the stars.

Ha! Apparently I rated this a 2 star back when I joined Goodreads (about 6 years after reading the book. That would have most certainly been a lie if I rated it when I actually read it! This book started my love affair with reading. No way in hell it would have been a 2 star in my eyes back in the day!!

I’m pleasantly surprised to tell you the truth – I expected to hate this book this time around. It’s been 12 years since I read it for the first and only time – but back then it started a mania in me. I was obsessed.

Now I can safely say that, yes, A Discovery of Witches is most definitely Twilight for adults (I’d seen it hinted at a few places, and reading them back to back. they are so similar!), I prefer that story to this one – it feels so much more. This one is just lacking that something.

But the nostalgia factor hit hard for me – I have a lot to thank this book for. As I say, it started my love of reading. It also greatly shaped my music taste – I had never listened to rock/indie/alternative, and the baseball scene in the film introduced me to my favourite band Muse. I also gave classical a chance after Edward’s love of it, and now it’s one of my favourite ways to unwind.

Is the book a cringe-fest?

Did I think it was a well-written story?
Not overly. Some of the dialogue was just…urgh.

Did I still enjoy myself?
Yes! And that’s all that matters.

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
