A book called Twilight

Before the story starts time to know how I stumbled across the book in first place.

It’s story of Bella Swan (the 17-year-old girl, and main character of the book) and she narrates you through the entire book. She shares her thoughts, her desire to be with the guy (Edward) who keeps staring her yet never shows interest and to whom she’s unconditionally attracted to.
Edward is stunningly attractive, almost inhumanly yet he never toys with humans. His looks attract many girls to him but he is intrigued only by Bella Swan. He wants to be with her but still as a vampire he knows his boundaries and his weakness.  Edward's suffering to keep her alive even though as a vampire he wants to drink her blood has been depicted incredibly.

The story progress to tell us what happens when two people from two different world bound by love and desire try to be together..

Once started reading Twilight, I couldn't stop. The story, the characters all mesmerized me.

The Story has been plotted in 'Forks' where Bella moves from Arizona. The description of both the places has been done so nicely that you would feel you're actually visiting the places yourself. Bella has been portrayed as very sensible &  thoughtful girl who takes care of her family and is always ready to sacrifice her happiness for them. First few hundred pages describe Bella’s inner struggle to decipher whether or not Edward likes her ‘for reals’ or not. The pressure/suspense was maddening and I had to shun my desire of reading the last few pages of the book.

This forbidden paranormal romance has been beautifully written and to get the best out of this book it should be read in one sitting.

Here are few of my favorite quotes from the book:
And so the lion fell in love with the lamb..." he murmured.
I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word.
What a stupid lamb," I sighed.
What a sick, masochistic lion."
— Stephenie Meyer

"About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him-and I didn’t know how potent that part might be-that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him."
— Stephenie Meyer
