This is one of my absolute favorite books that I have read in such a long time. I read it in one weekend, it's the kind of book that takes hold of you and you just can't put it down. I've fallen in love with the saga of a girl who falls in love with a vampire. It has such a balance of love and suspense. Stephenie Meyer is such a talented author with a distinct voice that I'm so happy she shared it. Everyone should read this book... You will love it!
