Synopsis: When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved? To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs.
Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating, and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life-first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse-seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?
The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions. (SOURCE)
This is only the second time I’ve read Breaking Dawn since it’s release. I loved it then but I think I enjoyed it more this time. I saw a lot of things differently this go around. I don’t know if it was just because of the movies or other factors [fanfic].
There were things that I didn’t really remember from before, and other scenes that will always be embedded in my brain. I laughed a lot (mostly when it came to Emmett teasing Bella). I wanted to hug Jacob for the agony he went through in the beginning. I didn’t dislike him the first time but I definitely have a different view now that I am partly Team Jacob (not for Bella, just in general).
The Ness thing never bothered me but I find that I appreciate her even more now. Her existence sort of fascinates me. I want to sit down with Carlisle and pick his brain.
It’s also nice to see Edward happy (except for the stress of the outside sources) with Bella. And for Bella to still have her “human” family in her life. If she had to stay away from Charlie or even Jacob, I would have been so hurt for her.
Seeing it all play out in my head was a lot easier during this second reading; probably because of the three movies that are already out.
It made me happy to re-read after all this time. I even want to start all over with Twilight and read them back to back. Too many books, too little time.
