I was excited to read this series after watching the movies and feeling a bit disappointed. I love love, and unfortunately the acting in the movies ruined them for me. However, I was recommended by bibliophiles over and over again that I HAD to read the books and boy were they right. These books are so much better than the movies (as is the case most of the time.) If you enjoyed the movies at all read these, if you love romance, read these, if you love vampy teenage angst..read these. They did not disappoint like the movies.
Also available as an Audiobook and an E-book. If you like this series you may also enjoy the Divergent Series.

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.
