I LOVED BREAKING DAWN!!!!!
(okay...that's the last of of my teenage-girl screaming, i promise).
i got the book at midnight, was back at my house by 1220 and read the entire thing in one sitting. it took me twelve hours!! that's by far the longest marathon read i've ever had. anyway, i loved the book because pretty much everything i wanted to happen, did. the wedding and honeymoon were completely swoon-worthy. i was scared that something bad would happen before they got married, so i'm infinitely glad that i got the wedding scene that i wanted. could anyone ask for a better honeymoon, especially with the song dark blue by jack's mannequin playing in your head during it? i mean, really? well...besides for the whole getting pregnant at the end of it...which leads me to...
i was NOT expecting bella to get pregnant and i hated SM for a minute because i had this thought like "stephenie meyer would have bella be pregnant and then let her DIE! she would SO do that to me!!" needless to say, i was in a state of perpetual anxiety during jacob's section. but, i did like having his point of view. oh! and then jacob imprinting on nessie came completely out of left field. i really didn't see it coming, but i'm glad jacob got someone! now i can love him without feeling like i'm betraying edward. and bella can live without questioning her love of edward.
i don't know about anyone else, but i cried at the part in jacob's section when he says he knew bella was dead because he couldn't feel her pull anymore. and then something about leaving edward to work over his dead corpse. i was like NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! i slapped my hand over the page where it said part three because i was terrified to see it be edward's or nessie's section. it was terrible....but then it turned out good so yay!
i thought bella as a vampire was absolutely wonderful. that whole first day of her immortality was just classic. i was so happy that bella wasn't one of the crazy newborns, too, because that probably would have ruined it for me. and! i'm definitely glad that bella had a cool power and that her "power" wasn't just amazing self-control, cuz that would have been lame. overall, SM put in everything i would have been curious about. definitely my favorite part of the book, and one of the reasons why BD became my second favorite of the series---twilight will always be first, for starting it all.
umm...i kinda wish there would have been more action at the end of the book--you know, an actual fight with the volturi--but i'm happy that no one died. well, except for irina, but does anyone really care about her? i know some people have a problem with the ending being too neat, or have problems with happy endings in general, but i love them. i am a hopeless romantic so the end really couldn't have been better. ::sighs wistfully::
i was so caught up in the book that i had to read it again like two days after. even now i'm tempted to go back and read the entire series in one go but, alas, i have stupid things like school to worry about...grumble.
okay, i loved it. and that's all.
