Twilight Saga – Stephenie Meyer

#1 – Twilight
#2 – New Moon
#3 – Eclipse
#4 – Breaking Dawn

I started reading this series reluctantly – Twilight was on one of the ‘buy one get one free’ books and I needed another to get the deal. This doesn’t include the fact that i’ve never considered Vampire Romances to be my kind of book. It took me by surprise. The originality in the traits of vampires in this series, and the gripping plot made it a very interesting read.

Unfortunately I never felt that attached to Jacob – one of the major characters; and this did make the majority of New Moon uninteresting to me. In addition, a couple of the surprises were foreseen by me. My one final gripe is the ending. I just wish that we found out a bit more about the lives of the ‘survivors’ after the climax. Let me explain, Breaking Dawn near the end after the main climax mentions in passing that it may not all be over; and yet it then ends with the impression that all the survivors lived ‘happily ever after’. This incongruency, to me, leaves something to be desired.

However, it is still a very enjoyable series – it will definitely be re-read at some point.
