Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

When seventeen-year-old Bella leaves Phoenix to live with her father in Forks, Washington, she meets an exquisitely handsome boy at school for whom she feels an overwhelming attraction and who she comes to realize is not wholly human.

I read this book for a few reasons. I was involved in the summer reading group - Read-a-ton. My boss, the March Hare and every female student I had this year told me I HAD to read it. At last, with the sequel a few months from publication I guess it would be good to know what we are stocking in the library. I tried 3 times unsuccessfully to read this. I couldn't get into it, and failed every time. So I tried once more time, determined to toss the book into the "lost cause" pile if I couldn't read it. Well, I read it and I was able to even enjoy myself. I don't think this book is for everyone but in the end I really did like it. It's more of a Chick-lit book than I really care for but it is a good story. It's kind of a soap opera with vampires. If you read it, forget everything you thought you knew about the blood stalkers of the night. Those old rules don't apply here. Everything is different! There is action in this book but it is primarily a love story, one of those sweet and perfect love stories.
