Fall in love with the addictive, suspenseful love story between a teenage girl and a vampire with the book that sparked a literary phenomenon and redefined romance for a generation (New York Times).
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, Isabella'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 Isabella, 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.
It's here! #1 bestselling author Stephenie Meyer makes a triumphant return to the world of Twilight with the highly anticipated companion, Midnight Sun: the iconic love story of Bella and Edward told from the vampire's point of view.
People do not want to just read Meyer's books; they want to climb inside them and live there. -- Time
A literary phenomenon. -- The New York Times

Our customer reviews

"...Okay, I know after reading some of this, it might sound like I actually didn't really like Twilight. But I do. I joke a lot that "trashy romance novels are my guilty pleasure," but I don't really mean that I think they're trashy. They're fun, and sometimes I need to vicariously get a little romance in my life, because much like pre-Forks Bella, I am very much lacking in that department. You will never, however, catch me saying that I want "my own Edward." That's a little too into it for me, and anyway, it's Jasper who's my favorite Cullen male..."

NOTE: Read the book before you watch the movie, probably THEN you would be more interested and knowing of what is going on. The first installment of The Twilight Saga starts off pretty slow, but continues on in becoming interesting as you go from chapter to chapter. Many have been ridiculing this Novel/Series, and from my perspective it may be because of the built-up hype and opposition of it's chosen character representatives. It's a young adult book that can pull the heart strings, a soft as well as humorous vampire-werewolf scenario, and a love triangle to add (or could it be a love-quad...i.e. Mike) I enjoyed this novel as I read it all the way through to the last book (Breaking Dawn). It's a great and entertaining escapism of a novel/s. On to read the second book 'New Moon.'show more
