So... I finished the book

I have to admit that I read the whole thing yesterday since I haven't been reading much the days before yesterday. I just settled myself in the garden in a very warm sweater and a pot of tea besides me and started reading. I finished the book so quickly, it was hard to believe it myself haha. So.. What do I think?

I think the book is an easy read and I can imagine why millions of teenage girls go nuts over this book. It has rather flat characters though so if you're into a more intelligent version of a vampire novel, skip this one. It felt my guilty little pleasure, because the story was pretty cheezy at some points. Some things are described in depth, like what she eats for breakfast (a granolo bar) and how fast she eats it (in three hasty bites). Maybe if it meant something to the story, but it contributed absolutely nothing.

I do want to say that I got sucked into the story completely and I could really imagine some of the interaction between Bella and Edward. It was tense at some moments and I could feel it myself. I don't know how Stephenie Meyer did that, because she didn't fully descripe the situations or whatsoever.

Overall: A nice, light read if you don't mind vampires that sparkle and don't even attack when there's someone bleeding all over the floor and they're dizzy with thirst (I didn't understand that they were going crazy because of the thrist, yet nobody tried to attack.. That just doesn't make sense!)

I'm gonna start New Moon tonight and I'll try to update some more so you know what I'm up to. I do want to tell you what happens in the story, so if you don't want spoilers (because you haven't read the book(s)), please be aware that I may tell something you don't want to know.
