A few months before the book fair at my school, I saw a lot of my friends reading the same book. The cover was black with snow white hands holding a bright red apple on it. I never knew that in just a few months, this book would become my favorite novel.
On the day of the book fair I went during sixth period to shop for some new books. I’d been wondering what was so great about this book with the hands and the apple on the cover, and there it was at the book fair, too: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I decided to pick it up and read the first couple of pages. I was so engrossed in it that I didn’t even notice that the bell rang. I grabbed my stuff and ran to the car riding area and ordered my mom to park, come inside and buy me a copy of Twilight (she always wants to buy me books, so she did.)
Although my mom didn’t know it, I stayed up all that night reading Twilight. About the time when the sun rose over the horizon, I had finished. I was so tired but I had to know what would happen next to Bella. My mom went out right away and bought the next two books, New Moon and Eclipse, for me.
Twilight has some kind of magnetic pull to it. It’s like you can’t get away from reading it, even if you don’t like that kind of stuff. I personally never cared for vampires, nor did I like romance, but Twilight kept me reading, and I really loved it. It is a young adult book, but I think it’s a great book for anyone to read.
My mom says you should give copies of books you love to other people, so I asked her if I could give away three copies of Twilight here on her blog. She said I could but that I'd have to write up the post myself. So here it is. If you’d like a chance to win one of them, in comments name a book you think I’d like to read (I'm thirteen and a half years old, and right now I’m reading Beauty by Robin McKinley and The Ruby Key by Holly Lisle.) Post your comment by midnight EST on Saturday, July 12, 2008, and then I’ll draw three names from everyone who comments and send the winners an unsigned copy of Twilight by Stephenie Meyer plus a bookmark I made myself. Mom says my giveaway is open to everyone on Earth, even if you’ve won something here at her blog before.
