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.

“I’m a little worried about Edward… Can vampires go into shock?”

Breaking Dawn isn’t very well liked book, especially concerning certain plot in it but it’s actually my favorite in the series, maybe because it focuses more on the romance.

It was just weird how much Bella hated to be engaged. The girl loved Edward enough to wanting to become a vampire but have a problem with marriage?

“I want you, and I want you forever. One lifetime is simply not enough for me.”

Edward’s the better man. He really would do anything to the girl he loves and instead of seeing Jacob as competition, he sees him as a friend, even a brother.

Not to say that Jacob was as horrible as I found him in earlier books. He had his total teenage angst going on but the girl he loved got married, so I think he was titled for it. I was glad to see him using his humor towards a Cullen that wasn’t Edward.

I liked the side characters even if I didn’t always keep up with who is who because there’s so many. I think I really enjoyed Stefan and Vladimir because most of them were there only to help Cullens while they just wanted to fight Volturi.

All in all very enjoyable last book of the series! We got romance, family, friendships, some mystery and even action. And the action didn’t even bore me out of my mind since it wasn’t as described as some fantasy/ paranormal books.
