Yesterday I went to see Breaking Dawn part 2. I really enjoyed the film and thought they adapted it well. There was one part that shocked me (you’ll know what I mean if you’ve seen it) but I realised what was happening and it all ended up fine.
I have been a fan of the Twilight books for a long time now – I read them before they really took off, just after the final book was released. Then the film came out and it went crazy! Twilight was the first modern YA books I read and I was completely hooked. I totally understand the critics out there but for me they were page turners and I fell hard for them. I have enjoyed the films, they kept the tone of the books even improving some parts so I’ll admit that I felt a little sad that it was all over as I left the cinema.
For me the biggest thing I’ll take away from the Twilight Saga is the love it gave me for both reading and writing young adult stories. After Twilight, I have practically only read YA books and because of the series, I started to wrote my own and would love to make a career out of it. The books have given me something wonderful and I’ll always be grateful for them.
The power of a book to inspire you in any way is why I love reading – and writing – so much.
I shall leave this post and Twilight with my favourite quote from the series:
What books have inspired you?
