About three things I was absolutely positive.

First, Edward was a vampire.

Second, there was a part of him—and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be—that thirsted for my blood.

And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

Deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight is a love story with bite.

I am definitely a Twilight fan. Why would I reread something I didn’t like? I can also see why people don’t like it, to each their own right?

If you don’t know Twilight follows Bella Swan as she moves from Arizona to Forks, Seattle to live with her dad so her mum can travel with her new husband. She is initially miserable until she notices a mysterious boy, Edward. Suddenly Forks isn’t so boring.

I love Bella, I really do, but this time around I began to notice how she complained and what she complained about. Like the weather and that Charlie isn’t home. All things that no one has any control over, which leaves very little reason to complain. I can appreciate that it must be difficult to move to a new state and start at a new school but she really didn’t want to be there and definitely acted as such.

I found the backstories we got to be honestly the part of the story I really enjoyed. I couldn’t remember how I knew any of Alice’s back story and when it came up in the story I was so happy – I really wish there was a book about Alice, I would love that – I love reading about all their lives before hand, Carlile’s is another interesting one.

Forks as a setting is stunning to me. I am someone who loves the rain and the mountains so I am always in heaven reading books based in Seattle or Alaska.

Overall Twilight is a nostalgic read for me. Will I reread it again? probably. Does that mean that its a spectacular novel? no. But for me it will always be a go too.

Identity Crisis Book Tag

I was scrolling through WordPress reader, because who doesn’t, when I camp upon a tag. I’d seen this tag before and had even attempted it but I got distracted and forgot to finish it. So we are back, this time to actually complete the tag.

I saw it on Kristin Kraves Books blog and here we are, taking a second attempt at this tag. The creator of this tag is Loretta at the Laughing Listener, thanks for creating such a fun tag!

Red Queen

Did you forget about Kilorn? Well you shouldn’t have! He may not be the centre of attention but he has stuck by Mare’s side since day one and didn’t even hesitate to join the Scarlet Guard. Just like Kilorn, your loyalty and bravery are your most admirable qualities. Rise, Red as the dawn.

Shadowhunters

You’re Clary Fairchild & Cristina Rosales

Sure, sometimes you act without thinking, but your determined to do what you believe in and you’re often coming from the right place. Try to keep your faith in the world around you – your ability to find the beautiful in the ordinary is a gift.

Throne of Glass

Shockingly. you’re an overwhelmingly sarcastic bookworm. You try to look on the brighter side of things, but your snarky sense of humor hides depths of concern. You’re probably the most responsible of your friends, as they know they can always count on you.

The Hunger Games

Joannah Mason

Yes, you can be known to be feisty and sometimes you feel like life can be unfair. But you won’t let that get in the way of your happiness. You use your charm to your advantage and won’t take any nonsense. But when you finally let your barriers down your personality shines and so do others around you.

You are outspoken, and walk to the beat of your own drum. You’ve always been different and take pride in your individualistic nature. Although you try to maintain a rebellious streak, you are consistently told you are sensible. Remember, don’t kiss strange boys.

Twilight

Victoria

Yeah, no one better cross you. Mess with you and it’s a death sentence. You’re not one to play games and are willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goals – no matter how bloody it can get. But life doesn’t always have to be filled with hate! Just blood, lots of blood.
