    My Review:
    The story took me down memory lane of reading Twlight back in the day. I did rush out to grab the books and waited for each one to arrive! Anyways, it was interesting to see Edward’s thoughts and perspective of meeting and connecting Bella. Wile I was reading it, the vibe gave me a sense of Louis from Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire. The emotions of dealing with the hunger, guilt and wrestling with emotions. To me the writing from Meyer and Rice felt parallel to each other just a bit. I think this shows Edward’s darker side that he battles with his darkness. There was so much more drama, emotions, personality and flirting between Edward and Isabella. Even the cute moments between Edward and Isabella was thrilling. I think this book just takes you down memory lane and the writing is just so rich. I can’t explain it. So if you are fan of Twilight, pick this book up and read it. I am glad that I purchased this book. This book is going to hang out with the other books.
