Writers are Readers: “Twilight”


REVIEWER: Sue Midlock


BOOK TITLE: Twilight


AUTHOR: Stephanie Meyer


GENERAL SYNOPSIS: High school student Bella Swan, always a bit of a misfit, doesn't expect life to change much when she moves from sunny Arizona to rainy Washington state. Then she meets Edward Cullen, a handsome but mysterious teen whose eyes seem to peer directly into her soul. Edward is a vampire whose family does not drink blood, and Bella, far from being frightened, enters into a dangerous romance with her immortal soulmate.


GENERAL IMPRESSIONS: I liked the way she wrote. It flowed well and there was never a lull in the story line.


HOW WAS THIS BOOK SIGNIFICANT FOR YOU? HOW WILL IT AFFECT YOUR WRITING?

It was the first book that got me to write my first book, Birthright. The Vampire genre at the time this came out was at an all-time high and the way Ms. Meyer told the story you could feel the main characters emotions and I’ve never had that feeling in any other book I read. So, I thought why not me? I had just started getting into writing then, so I wasn’t even sure that it would get published or even if I wanted it to. As it stands, Birthright was published in 2011 and republished this year, 2020, and has received two 5 Star reviews, made the Top Ten List and was best seller the first week it was out. From then I have written 8 more novels and I am currently working on my 9th.
