Book you’re most embarrassed to say you like
*mumble mumble* Twilight by Stephanie Meyer *mumble mumble*
I may bash the entire series to death and accuse SM of being cowardly in her writing but I actually really enjoyed reading all four books (right up until the end of the last book which annoyed me. Lots.)
They are very clever books – there are plot holes, serious storyline issues, SM is clearly madly in love with her own characters and the writing is a bit dubious at times and yet you just can’t stop reading them. Or enjoying them when you are ‘in the moment’.
Summary (from GoodReads)
Isabella Swan’s move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Bella’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Bella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knife—between desire and danger. Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.
