Breaking Dawn -- FINALLY Finished!!!

Well, I finally finished Breaking Dawn today.

Now, I have fully fallen prey to the power of the Twilight series. I devoured the first three books, and the movie was awesome (more on that later).

However, Breaking Dawn dragggggggggged on. The first two parts were decent. I know a lot had to do with the thoughts of Bella and Jacob, so it provided a real insight to both characters. However, the third part was just, I dunno. Slow. I can't even think of anything to compare it to.

The plot was great. I enjoyed the way it went, and the story line with Renesmee was really good. However, the final scene shouldn't have lasted five chapters. Was it five chapters? Let me check. Ok, it was three. But it felt like five.

So, here is my take, including spoilers:

Jacob imprinting on Renesmee kind of tripped me out a bit. I don't know if it's because I have girls, or if it's because it happened immediately after birth. And the fact that she'll be fully mature when she's 7? My daughter is 7. It just seems weird.

Alice and Jasper. LOVE them. Loved them in the movie, too. However, Alice just ditching the Cullens ticked me off like it did Bella. And the thing with J. Jenks? There were a lot of times when I was like "Just get to the POINT already!" The book read like talking to my ex-boyfriend. I felt like I was being asked to be a mind reader.

However, once everything panned out, things made a whole heck of a lot more sense. I will defintely be re-reading this series. I have Twilight and New Moon on order from Amazon, and I already own Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. I will be taking a break, though. I am on my way to check the box of books I have in the garage.

So, what are your thoughts? On Breaking Dawn? On the whole series?

If you want to give me your thoughts as a guest blogger, let me know, and I'll tell you how to post!

  1. I agree with you on the imprinting part... creepy!
    I enjoyed all the books a lot, although some parts were slower than others, but that happens a lot when you get into a series of books
