{another try}

I was never interested in the Twilight Saga. I guess because I've never been into vampires -actually, I could say that I hated the idea of the whole vampire deal-. Not too long ago a friend of mine convinced me to pick up the first book and what can I say...I really liked it! Hmmm that love, who could resist that type of love.

The first book was great! I couldn't wait to start New Moon. The same day I finished Twilight I stared it. Those first chapters were killing me. I could feel everything she was going through. The chapters where the author just wrote the months...Wow! Those chapters made my heart ache. I was enjoying every minute of the book.

But shortly after, I found myself dreading something about the book. I realized that there was something that had been bothering me since the beginning. It was Bella! I couldn't deal with her self esteem problems anymore. Self confidence is a MUST for me, and her character has serious problems in that department.

Regardless of that, the fact that the book was pretty slow, and that Edward was barely in the story, I finished it pretty quick and actually enjoyed it, especially towards the end. Right after, I started Eclipse. All my friends said that one was the best out of the four. But this time I had to put it down. I realized I needed a break from Bella.

It's been a couple of months and I think I'm ready to pick it up again. I am going to give it another chance. Plus isn't this one the best?!?

I would like to finish the series this summer.

If you read them, which book is your favorite?


  1. YES!! Eclipse was the best one!!!! I like Twilight as well. The books are pretty good and I found myself not wanting to put it down till I was finished...but it isn't all it's cracked up to be in my opinion. I also thought the first movie was TERRIBLE!!!!! I haven't seen the second. Have you??

  2. Oh...Eclipse is sooo good. I liked Twilight best, then Eclipse (although it is so good it could almost be first) then Breaking Dawn and New Moon would have to be last. (Probably because of the absence of Edward so much!)

    Let me know if you like Eclipse when you finish it...I am guessing you will be swooning!!!
    Hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday!!!

  3. Eclipse and Breaking Dawn are my favorite! New Moon is tne worst fron the saga.

  4. I haven't read them, but did see the movies. Usually the books are better, I think. :)

  5. Oh I so agree with you. I read the second book so quickly just because I wanted to know Edward comes back, not because I actually liked it that much.
    Bella seriously got to me so much. She does get better though. I would have to say my favourite is the 4th book! Bella is much happier and confident so I definitely think you should give it another go :)

  6. Hello Mavi!
    I just had to come by and say hi. I found your lovely blog via Bonjour Romance. My dear Mimi, isn't she the greatest? As a fellow pink lover, I had to come check out your blog just from your blog's title. If you get a chance, stop by my blog and get your daily dose of pink! I am now following you.
    Have a wonderful day!

  7. I love them all so much... but i can see why Eclipse is the fave, full of action and sexual tension everywhere lol and we all love some good sexual tension!!! You will love it bff :) muah <3

  8. I agree Bella is annoying at times. But the love story is pretty beautiful I think.
