Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer

Breaking Dawn
(The Twilight Saga #4)
by Stephenie Meyer

Summary from Goodreads:

"Twilight tempted the imagination. New Moon made readers thirsty for more. Eclipse turned the saga into a worldwide phenomenon. And now, the book that everyone has been waiting for...

Breaking Dawn, the final book in the #1 bestselling Twilight Saga, will take your breath away."


I loved a lot of things about this book: (1) Bella and Edward’s wedding; (2) Jacob’s perspective; (3) Bella’s pregnancy; (4) The division between the werewolves, (5) Renesmee; (6) Jacob imprinting; (7) Bella turns into a vampire and; (8) More gifted vampires in town! 

The whole thing got me psyched up on finishing this. The first half of the book was good enough since everything was rolling in, from the wedding to the honeymoon, to Bella getting pregnant, it was all very exciting. It slowed down a bit when it got to Jacob’s perspective but I savored it nonetheless. Jacob’s point-of-view was funny and new. 

But when it got to the part of Bella turning vampire and the whole Volturi drama, it slammed me to boring-mode. The only thing that got me through it was that there were new vampires in town and a lot of them had gifts, also I was anticipating the clash of the vampires against the Volturi. 

And then we reach the verdict. Damn! Where’s my fighting scene? Where’s the clashing? Not even a smidge? That was the disappointing part. I’m not a blood-crazy fool, people, but from what Meyer had set, it screamed: FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! But they eventually didn’t resolve to violence. I just expected much of it I guess. 

Well, in spite of my dismay I still liked this book. And I’m such a sucker for happy endings so, yea, that was good.
