Twilight Saga

by
  • (9 reviews)

    When seventeen-year-old Isabella (Bella) Swan moves to the rainy town of Forks, Washington to live with her Dad, all she is expecting to find is boredom, apathy and the usual jocks and nerds at the sleepy high school. Nothing could be further from reality. She is captivated by the beautiful but aloof Cullen siblings, but they have a secret to guard and the rude and hostile Edward is determined to stay away. But even the knowledge that Edward is a vampire cannot curb Bella’s dangerous desire for him, despite the warnings of her father and her new best friend Jacob Black, who just happens to be a werewolf. Bella and Edward’s story is a thrilling mix of horror and romance as well as a seductive coming of age story, where two lovers fight for their love against all the odds.

    The compelling romance was an instant hit when it was published in 2005, selling millions of copies and winning several awards including the 2008 British Book Award Children’s Book of the Year for Breaking Dawn. In fact, book one broke the UK record for the fastest time to sell 1 million copies of a book in Waterstone’s. The books’ success continued with the Hollywood blockbuster that made both Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart’s names. The Twilight saga books have been a modern phenomenon, bringing vampires to the masses. Twilight’s romance and its universal themes of rebellion, angst and finding your place have earned it fans (known as “Twihards”) across the globe. 

    The vampire romance saga is a four book series and it’s best to read them in order, so start with Book 1 or embark on the whole Twilight collection. Readers aged 10 and over (including adults!) will be sure to be sucked into this must-read series. 

    All the Twilight books in order:

    Book 1: Twilight (2005)
    Book 2: New Moon (2006)
    Book 3: Eclipse (2007)
    Book 4: Breaking Dawn (2008)
    Book 5: Midnight Sun (2020)
