Rereading Twilight – Review

I actually did it – I reread the first Twilight novel by Stephanie Meyer. But it wasn’t totally out of the blue: her new book, Midnight Sun, has been all over the news lately.

Here is my wildly confusing, irrational and controversial review of rereading a series I always put in the “I read it when I was 12 and was the biggest fan but now it’s rubbish and I hate it” box.

First Impressions: A Winter’s Promise

This is one of the books I got for Christmas (list here!) and I started reading right away. My mum got me this book because the last time we went to the book store, we found an astonishing cover with a great story that turned out to be number two of this series called The Mirror Visitor – and she got me the first book and I love it. Here are my first thoughts!
