October TBR

So I’m getting back into reading and I thought I would make a post about the books I want to read is month. img_5158

I really want to reread Twilight by Stephenie Meyer this month! It has been awhile since I’ve reread this book, and Lately I’ve been in the mood for it.

I want to get to Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children this month since the movie is coming, or already is out. It seems like it would be an interesting read(and I’ve had this book on my shelf for some time now!)

At the end of this month, I’m hoping to participate in Deweys 24 hour readathon. I’m going to be getting some graphic img_5160novels from my library for that, but as of right now, I’m not sure which ones. However, I do want to read Saga Vol. 6!

Those are what I’m hoping to get to this month. What are you reading?

Book Discussion- Life and Death

Title- Life and DeathLifeanddeathtwilightreimagined
Author- Stephenie Meyer
Pages- 389
Rating-  4 out of 5
Companion/Sequel/Other- Twilight Reimagined!

This was my first read of 2016, and I have to say, I quite enjoyed it! This story brought me back into the world of Twilight, which I haven’t been in awhile! It definitely made me want to reread the original as well, so I’m thinking I may do a reread of the saga this year.

This story follows the same story as Twilight, however with some changes in the scenes, and dialogue to work with the gender swap! It does take some time to get adjusted to these characters. I admit that I definitely had a hard time picturing Beau and Edthye because I was so use to the original characters. However, once you’re able to do that you do get to enjoy these characters. My favorite was Archie, who is this books Alice!

The ending! I really enjoyed the ending of this book! It was fun to see how Twilight could have ended if it was just a stangiphydalone book. I’m glad I got to see this alternate ending, however I do feel as though it was rushed. I do prefer the original ending for Twilight. This ending also made me a bit depressed. Because of Beau changing, he had to fake his own death and he never got to apologize for what he said to Charlie before he left, and you can tell how he regrets that. It was upsetting, and I’m glad that wasn’t the original ending!

I honestly believe people had too high expectations, and were expecting a bit much from this story. Going into this I expected a fun, enjoyable, slightly different story because of the gender swap, and that’s whatumblr_n0pwfyPVHH1t77ydgo1_500t I got. I honestly believe because I wasn’t expecting a lot, I enjoyed it more than others.

You have to enjoy this story for what it is. A fun, enjoyable story that Stephenie wrote for the fans. Also for those saying that this was published for just a cash grab, I have to disagree. A tenth anniversary edition would have been published anyway, this was just something fun that she though the fans would enjoy. Enjoy it for what it is, and I think you’ll have fun with this story!
