Review: Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer

"'Breaking Dawn, the final book in the #1 bestselling Twilight Saga, will take your breath away.'

Twilight tempted the imagination. New Moon made readers thirsty for more. Eclipse turned the saga into a worldwide phenomenon. And now, the book that everyone has been waiting for... "

Bella Swan is marrying Edward Cullen, the [not so] man of her dreams.  She will soon become a vampire and leave the life and people that she loves behind her to spend an eternity with him.  The wedding, although a little outrageous for her taste and Jacob having wolf rages, was perfect.  The honeymoon was equally fabulous, she finally did the deed for the first time with someone that she loves and was going to be with forever.  She and Edward on a secluded Island with tons of things to do, but what Bella really wants to do is have sex with Edward, who refuses, again.  Other than that their honey moon is perfect as well.  That is until the impossible happens.  Bella misses her period and starts having strange cravings.  But that’s impossible, Edward is a vampire, and vampires do not reproduce that way.  Edward and Bella’s lives are about to be turned upside down and the forever that they thought that they would have together might be caught sort by a disaster.

My rating for this book:

[Spoiler Alert for those who haven’t read the book.]
When Breaking Dawn, the fourth and final installment of the Twilight series came out I was so excited I went to Walmart to get it at midnight.  Although it started out really good, it was my least favorite of the series.  I’m not really sure how I would have went about doing to story myself if I was Stephenie but I feel like a happy ending for everyone was way too forced with Bella ending up with the best of both worlds.  Although I myself usually enjoy books with weird aspects, this one was a little too weird for me.  But then again that’s what’s so great about the supernatural genre: anything goes.  
I did like how the book starts and ends with Bella’s perspective but in the middle it’s Jaocb’s point of view.  I also liked how all of the character’s finally come together and there are no more secrets which is the way I feel books are supposed to end.

Stephenie Meyer lives in Arizona with her sons and husband.  The Twilight series was her first and then she followed with a second book called  The Host, which is now be casted to become a major motion picture.

So are you guys going to see the movie tomorrow?  Tonight at midnight?  Are you bigger fans of the movies or the books?  Let’s get some discussion going!!!

Great review! I have to agree, this one wasn't my favorite in the series. But then, I would have loved for the series to keep going.

I am looking forward to the movie though, it looks great! :)
