REVIEW: Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer


When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?

To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs.

Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating, and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella's life-first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse-seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed... forever?

This is my personal favorite of the series. It’s also the first book I read BEFORE seeing the movie(s), so I went in blind and it was great. It was a work night and I still stayed up until 3am just to finish it.

This was also the first book we see from a POV other than Bella’s and the insight into Jacob’s mind and the pack dynamics was cool. Some of the events that happened were predictable, but some surprised me a little.

Despite loving the pregnancy portion of the book, I especially loved her vampire life. The new perspective was nice after three books of being the human among the supernatural. It’s an attractive life, maybe not counting the thirst and hunting parts. The amount of things I could do if I didn’t need to sleep?!

I adore Renesmee (though, seriously with name?) and how Charlie is brought into her life. The showdown with the Volturi was the coup de grĂ¢ce. All the abilities we got to see and sticking it to Jane and all was oh so satisfying.

Bottom Line:

Breaking Dawn is a perfect conclusion to an addictive fantasy romance saga.
