Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Well, since I read the first three, I figured I should give the fourth Twilight book a shot, and borrowed Breaking Dawn from a friend. I haven’t really found love with the first three, possibly because I’m not that into vampires, and I think I’m simply too old for the books. *Sigh* So with Breaking Dawn, the story picks up where Bella Swan has decided she wants to be a vampire so she can live forever with Edward Cullen. She has made her decision between Edward and Jacob, and vampire trumps werewolf in this case. We watch her make her decision, marry Edward, have sex with a vampire and get pregnant with a vampire baby, and read about the gruesome birthing scene that has terrified me. I’ll be honest – I stopped really reading by the 100th page of so. So I had a lot of speed reading ahead of me, as this is one ginormous book. With the series not doing much for me, it was hard to keep my attention commanded on the fourth. I haven’t watched any of the movies yet, and I probably won’t unless I’m super bored one day and stumble upon them on Starz or something. While the books weren’t for me, I clearly understand that many, many others love them, and I’m happy I gave them a go.
