I love to read fiction. It's such a great escape from reality. Reading, to me, is like therapy and I love how it's endlessly at my constant disposal. : )
When I thought about what my "favorite" book is...I had a few in mind, but in the end, I chose the one that truly moved me the most.
The book I chose doesn't stand alone...infact, it's probably the most anticipated book I've ever read. I decided Breaking Dawn is, no doubt, my favorite book. It's the fourth and last book from the Twilight Saga, and it tremendously 100% delivered, in my opinion! I've never read a book that had me so invested. I give a lot of credit to the 3 books before it, but Breaking Dawn was like a fascinating, live story in my head....and not at all like I was reading. The author, Stephenie Meyer, has an incredible way of making the reader fall into the book, into the lives and world that she created...and almost hypnotizes you with the soulful, artistic imagination she shares. People can judge all they want about this fictional book, but I will never be ashamed to admit that I fell in love with it. Here's a few lines from my favorite chapter.
"All I really saw was Edward's face; it filled my vision and overwhelmed my mind. His eyes were a buttery, burning gold; his perfect face was almost severe with the depths of his emotion. And then, as he met my awed gaze, he broke into a breathtaking smile of exultation."
I've read many, many books and have enjoyed most of them, but Breaking Dawn had everything I want from a book.....artful writing, an epic romance....and a strong heartbeat.
