Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Series: Twilight #4
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Genres: Romance, Young Adult, Fiction, Paranormal
To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs.
Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life – first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse – seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?

In the last book, Edward and Bella made a compromise. Edward accepted to give her what she wants while human – sex in her honeymoon – in exchange for him marrying her. And that’s because other than the risk of him being vampire and being way too strong for a human body, he was also old fashioned, since he was born in another generation.
This book started with the wedding. After the wedding, they went to Isle Esme (a present from Carlisle to Esme, yes the all isle!) for their honeymoon. They passed their moments there and everything seemed normal until Bella’s period was delayed. Bella was PREGNANT!
Bella was excited while Edward was horrified. How was that even possible, right?
The second part of the book was in Jacob’s POV.When he discovered Bella was pregnant, and that she was having issues with it, for her sake, he trying to prevent the other wolves from killing her.
Back to Bella’s POV as a vampire. She finally got her dream come true and she was a mom. But not everything is that simple and some complications appear.
This book was in my opinion a bit better than the others. I loved that it had a lot of information and amazing new things!
But the thing I most love about this book is that Bella FINALLY stopped being an idiot! In this book we finally see Bella as a strong person and cares about her family and that would do anything for them. She is more reasonable in her decisions and more calm in her actions. For sure Bella got everything she wanted in this book without really sacrificing nothing but at least for the first time she was determined to.
A thing I didn’t like is that Bella was okay with leaving her family (mom and dad) behind. Without seeing them anymore if it wasn’t possible. I was okay with the fact that after the baby she didn’t really have other chance than becoming a vampire but even before that she already had made up her mind (although I think she was slightly backing off).
The thing that made this book was for sure Renesmee (weird name but the idea was sweet…). She is lovely! I loved to have this new character in the book, it made a huge different! She as an amazing power the draws people towards her and that was captured pretty well in the writing.
I loved how, even tho, Jacob imprinted on Nessie, his relationship with Edward only got stronger. And how even tho I thought every action he did before was stupid and reckless now he seems to change that.
I really liked the relationship all the family gained after Nessie was born. Including Charlie. That was a plus to this book.
Only big let down is that I was hoping for more action in the book. For an actual fight. I liked the outcome and Bella’s part on it but it seemed a bit easy. Other than that I really enjoyed this book! But I liked how the vampires and wolves actually joined to fight with them in case it was necessary.
It was the perfect ending and I couldn’t be happier about that.
The movie is divided in two parts.
The first part ends in the middle of the book basically when Renesmee is born. I enjoyed the movie but it really pissed me off with Jacob’s changing of moods and thoughts. The parts I must have liked most were the honeymoon and Bella’s pregnancy, also I thought she finally showed a bit more of emotions in this movie. The whole situation being a chaos was pretty cool. Also the effects on Bella’s body while pregnant and terribly sick were amazing!!
The second part of the movie was actually pretty cool! I thought time passed way too fast comparing to the book and obviously some parts are missing that I think would be nice to have but overall I liked it! Especially the element of fight they added! It was awesome! The way they betrayed Renesmee was a bit weird but nothing special. It was a nice movie to end the series!
What were your thought on all the series?
