On her first day at school she meets a mysterious and irresistible boy, Edward Cullen, who goes out of his way to avoid her. After meeting him, Bella’s life takes a thrilling and dangerous turn. Edward is irresistible and impenetrable and he had managed to keep his real identity a secret but be Bella was determined to find out his dark secret. Bella didn’t realise that the closer she became to Edward, the more danger she and those around her where in. Edward is a vampire and doesn’t trust himself to be around Bella but she will not leave him alone and will risk her life everyday just to be with him.
When I first picked up the book to read it took me a couple of paragraphs to get into the storyline and then I was hooked and found it extremely hard to put the book down. This is a brilliant book and it is perfect for young people who love to read fiction books and love a bit of the supernatural. This book mixes the supernatural with a love story. This book is part of a set and they are all about love, vampires and werewolves. Even if this book does not sound appealing, I recommend reading it anyway as I once thought that the Twilight book set was bad until I actually took the time to read them and then I was in love with this book and went from one twilight book to the other as I just couldn’t stop reading.
