My opinions on The Twilight Saga

Ok people, i have finished reading the Twilight Saga (all 4 books) and im here to tell you my review (im told i have a way with words!). I will explain the plot of the series through each book.

Twilight

Most boring book of the entire series, but also very crucial, because they refer back alot. Bella Swan moves in with her father, because her mother (and dad in-law) are going to Florida and she doesnt wanna go. So she goes to her dads in Forks, Washington. She goes to school and finds these awesome perfect people. She gets to sit by one in her science class. hes creeped out. she is creeped out. they talk. awkward .... she almost gets mugged, he saves her life and speeds away (not in his seatbelt!) ... They talk in the forest. OMG HES A VAMPIRE !!! He throws her on her back and runs (AHH!!!) he takes off his shirt and it sparkles his skin in the sunlight (MAGICAL !!). she calls him beautiful. they fall in love. (now i skip ahead), they play baseball. bad nomad vampires come. they have to kill one. they run. James dies (the nomad #1 / #3). There in love and go to prom. The End.

New Moon

Boring at first. its Bella's birthday. she gets a papercut. one vampire goes nuts. he has to leave ... Edward leaves her. she gets depressed and screams in her sleep ALOT. she falls for a werewolf whos younger then her (Jacob Black). Theres a romance there almost. she doesnt want to love him. he is in love with her. her dad gets mad and she tells him shes not crazy, she just needs a girls night out. she goes out with her girlfriend (friend who is a girl, its girl talk!). She see's a biker, she gets a ride on her bike, because she wants to feel a rush so she goes crazy and see's her ex, edward. she see's him. she just needed a rush. shes happy then for 30 seconds. she doesnt feel pain when she is around Jacob. She gives him a scrappy bike. they fix it. they ride it. she gets a rush and sees edward (she used jacob ...). she falls off bike and hits head on rock. she bleeds. she screams in sleep again. she tries to kill herself by jumping off a cliff. she lives, because jacob saves her. she doesnt care. vampire nomad #2 (lover of #1) kills bella's dads friend. edward thinks bella dies, but it was her dads friend. he wants to die now. he lied and still loves bella. she goes to Italy to save him. he lives. almost. it was a close call. The Voltori are the Vampire Gods (almost) and are in Italy. there happy.


Eclipse

The story opens with the revelation that Seattle, Washington is being plagued by a string of unsolved murders, which Edward suspects is caused by a new vampire that is unable to control its thirst for human blood. As Edward and Bella apply to colleges, Bella explains to Edward her desire to see her friend, Jacob Black, a werewolf. Although Edward fears for her safety, Bella insists that neither Jacob nor his wolf pack would ever harm her, and she begins visiting him occasionally. Meanwhile, Alice Cullen has a vision that Victoria, a vampire who is hunting Bella for revenge, has returned to Forks. A few days later, Edward proposes to Bella and, despite harboring an aversion to marriage, she accepts.

Bella and the Cullens soon realize that the Seattle murders are being committed by an "army" of newborn vampires, controlled by Victoria. The Cullens join forces with the wolf pack to combat this threat. As everyone else prepares for battle, Edward, Bella, and Jacob camp in the mountains, hidden during the battle, where they are later joined by Seth Clearwater, a young wolf pack member, to wait out the fight.

In the morning, Jacob becomes upset when he overhears Edward and Bella discussing their engagement and threatens to join the fight and get himself killed. To stop him, Bella kisses Jacob and comes to realize that she is in love with him as well. During the battle, Victoria tracks Edward's scent to Bella's forest hiding place, and Edward is forced to fight. After Victoria and her army are successfully destroyed, Bella explains to Jacob that while she loves him, her love for Edward is greater. After receiving a wedding invitation from Edward, Jacob runs away in his wolf form to escape his pain, angry and heartbroken at Bella's decision to become a vampire.


Breaking Dawn

Breaking Dawn is split into three separate parts. The first part details Bella's marriage and honeymoon with Edward, which they spend on a private island off the coast of Brazil. Two weeks into their honeymoon, Bella realizes that she is pregnant and that her condition is progressing at an unnaturally accelerated rate. After contacting Carlisle, who confirms her pregnancy, she and Edward immediately return home to Forks, Washington. Edward, concerned for Bella's life and convinced that the fetus is a monster as it continues to develop with unnatural rapidity, urges her to have an abortion. However, Bella feels a connection with the child and refuses.

The novel's second part is written from the perspective of wolf shape-shifter Jacob Black, and lasts throughout Bella's pregnancy and childbirth. Jacob's Quileute wolf pack, not knowing what danger the unborn child may pose, plan to destroy it, also killing Bella. Jacob vehemently protests this decision and leaves, forming his own pack with Leah and Seth Clearwater. Bella soon gives birth, but the baby breaks many of her bones and she loses massive amounts of blood. In order to save her life, Edward changes her into a vampire by injecting his venom into her heart. Jacob, who was present for the birth, almost immediately "imprints"—an involuntary response in which a shape-shifter finds his soul mate—on Edward and Bella's newborn daughter, Renesmee.

The third section of Breaking Dawn shifts back to Bella's perspective, finding her changed into a vampire and enjoying her new life and abilities. However, the vampire Irina misidentifies Renesmee as an "immortal child", a child who has been turned into a vampire. Because "immortal children" are uncontrollable, creating them has been outlawed by the Volturi. After Irina presents her allegation to the Volturi, they plan to destroy Renesmee and the Cullens. In an attempt to survive, the Cullens gather other vampire clans from around the world to stand as witnesses and prove to the Volturi that Renesmee is not an immortal child. Upon confronting the gathered Cullen allies and witnesses, the Volturi discover that they have been misinformed and immediately execute Irina for her mistake. However, they remain undecided on whether Renesmee should be viewed as a threat to vampires' secret existence. At that time, Alice and Jasper, who had left prior to the confrontation, return with a Mapuche called Nahuel, a 150-year-old vampire-human crossbreed like Renesmee. He demonstrates that the crossbreeds pose no threat, and the Volturi surrender. Edward, Bella and Renesmee return to their home in peace.
