I absolutely loved the twilight books when I read them years ago so I thought I’d give this one a try. I really struggled to get through this despite my love for twilight, but that could just be because I don’t particularly like reading in first person (I also couldn’t  connect with Edward). It generally was a recount of twilight but in his perspective so no complaints there since I enjoyed twilight and it was nice to get some insight into his thoughts and compare them to Bella’s. However some moments I thought were stalkerish/creepy or I just didn’t care about what he was thinking (I wanted to know about everyone else) 😅. I also felt that the story dragged in some instances.  Overall it was a decent read although I probably wouldn’t read it again.
