The biggest question to hit the literary world since "Does Harry die?!" is "Will Edward and Bella have a happy ending?!"  And thankfully, we don’t have to wait much longer to find out.  As I type, it’s about 11 hours and 49 minutes until Breaking Dawn hits the shelves.  But who’s counting, right?  Stephanie Meyer Mania has hit and if you haven’t noticed, it’s likely you are living under a rock or purposefully avoiding all media outlets.  As an avid fan, I’ve watched nearly every trailer on YouTube for the Twilight movie, but avoided reading any spoilers for Breaking Dawn because I don't want to ruin it for myself. 

If you don’t know what I’m talking about or who Edward and Bella are, you have some catching up to do.  Here’s the three run-on sentence summary of the first three books of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga: 

Bella moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father and transfers to the local high school where she meets Edward, who is the hottest thing since toasted bread and who, interestingly enough, is a vampire of the non-human eating variety, living with his family nearby and of course Edward and Bella fall madly in love, much to the chagrin of her best friend (and werewolf) Jacob, who is also in love with Bella and is by (werewolf) nature, a sworn enemy of vampires.  Bella, clumsy, but endearing heroine that she is, gets herself into all kinds of trouble with not-so-friendly vampires, which Edward saves her from repeatedly.  Bella wants nothing more than to be with Edward forever through becoming a vampire herself, but Edward, and Jacob think this is a bad idea, which is where we are now, eagerly awaiting Breaking Dawn. 

                I have to admit, I tried to use my Librarian Connections to get a copy of Breaking Dawn before it hit the shelves.  But this book is locked up tighter than Fort Knox.  So I’m waiting like the rest of you to find out the fate of Bella, Edward, Jacob and everyone else I’ve come to know in Forks.

 The only real question I anticipate having after I turn the last page of the book’s 768 pages is, What am I going to do now that it’s all done??               

What do you think is going to happen?  Who do you think Bella should end up with?  Share your thoughts!


Want to catch up or reread her other books?  Find Stephenie Meyer at the Free Library! 

And if you haven’t done it already, place your hold now; copies are expected to hit library shelves Monday or Tuesday due to a shipping snafu.  (Sorry!!)

True to form, Meyer surprises us with a few twists in this final book. I walked away happy, and I think most readers will too.

When you are in the corner and have no cash to go out from that, you would have to receive the . Because that would aid you unquestionably. I get college loan every year and feel fine just because of it.
