Book Review: Breaking Dawn

Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer

Rare is it that I don't have oodles of words to say about a book review, but this time, I really don't.

Huh.

(no spoilers!)

We finally come to the end of the "Twilight Saga" with this 750+ page beast which wraps up the story of Bella and Edward, Jacob, the Cullens and Forks as a whole. I'm still on Team Edward, but I came to like Jacob more with this book, so that's something.

I found some of the plot points a bit...Mary Sue fanfic-y...but Meyer still draws you into the story with her writing, making you want to know more. Based on her ending, I surmise that she has put the saga to rest, not planning to resurrect the series any more. Bella and Edward are still achingly romantic in this novel, and the atmosphere once again pulls the reader in. Like the others, this is an easy read that can be devoured in no time.

I still have mixed feelings about the book, but overall, I give it a thumbs up, as I do with the whole saga. If you haven't read Twilight, what are you waiting for??
