I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies.
What I Remember:
I tore into this book on a Mediator binge read back when this book was released. I think it might’ve been the first time I’ve binge read a series. I rapidly tore through the pages wanting to read what was next. And the result it made me laugh, cry, and just have so many feels.
I am still getting the feels from this book roughly eleven years after the last one was published-God, I don’t like thinking that this book is that old.
It still holds up pretty well though. In some ways, it’s holds up better than a lot of Cabot’s older titles. I think it’s because rather than relying on a lot of pop culture references and jokes that other Cabot titles rely on, it really focuses on the story.
And the story is really aw-ing, although there are some plot holes that I noticed on reread. But I try not to think of them. Because we all know time travel is a very strange thing thanks to the Doctor, and it’s better to NOT try to make it logical.
Twilight ties up the series very nicely. So nicely in fact, that when I heard there was going to be a new book, I was a little nervous.
Because Twilight ends just perfectly.
That last chapter, every single time I read it I just tear up. It makes some one a little weary seeing how things are going to progress with these characters.
Especially since there was a point in time where Meg said that no one would want her to write a sequel, since bad things would happen to the characters.
Who knows though?
All I know is that Twilight is pretty much the perfect book. While I wouldn’t say it’s as action packed as Darkest Hour, there is a lot of action in it AND more importantly it’s a very emotional book. Things are nicely tied up in this installment and can’t help but make you cry with tears of happiness.
