The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.

My Review:  Yep, still love these books!  I finished re-reading them last month.  I had been without a set for a while, but recently got the movie inspired covers.  It was great diving back into Bella and Edward's world.  Even though there are movies now, I still enjoy reading the actual books (since most of us know that the books are better anyways)!  I still had a hard time putting them down, the only thing that got me to do that, other books I needed to read and I did have to eat, sleep and shower! 

If you haven't read this series yet, but still feel it's too YA for you, it's not!  It's a great romance, and action book.  You'll still be enthralled with Edward and his ways.  I still picture my Edward, Bella and Jacob.  Not to mention the other vampires, and wolves I run into just by reading it!
