Stephenie Meyer

Updated Thursday, 18 October, 2012

I know I probably don’t need to tell you who Stephenie Meyer is. Pretty much everybody knows she’s the author of the Twilight Saga. She has also written a bunch of other books I have not yet read, although I’m not sure why. I really enjoyed all the books in the Twilight Saga (even New Moon, which was definitely the most difficult read of the series), so I would probably enjoy her other works just as much, if not more. Sooner or later I need to remedy the situation and read some of her other books.

Books I've Read by Stephenie Meyer

The Twilight Saga

  1. Twilight (Paperback Edition) or (Hardcover Edition) or (Amazon Kindle Edition)

    I’D NEVER GIVEN MUCH THOUGHT TO HOW I WOULD DIEthough I’d had reason enough in the last few months—but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this . . . . Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of someone else, someone I loved. Noble, even. That ought to count for something.

    When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the misterious, alluring Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terifying turn. With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistable and impenetrable. Up until now, he has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret.

    What Bella doesn’t realize is the closer she gets to him, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risk. And, it might be too late to turn back . . .

    Deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspensful, Twilight will have readers riveted right until the very last page is turned. (book description)

    Personal note: This book was a great start to the Twilight Saga, and made me eager to continue on with the rest.

  2. New Moon (Paperback Edition) or (Hardcover Edition) or (Amazon Kindle Edition)
    New Moon

    I FELT LIKE I WAS TRAPPED IN ONE OF THOSE TERRIFYING NIGHTMARES, the one where you have to run, run till your lungs burst, but you can’t make your body move fast enough . . . . But this was no dream, and, unlike the nightmare, I wasn’t running for my life; I was racing to save something infinitely more precious. My own life meant little to me today.

    For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning . . . .

    Legions of readers entranced by the New York Times bestseller Twilight are hungry for the continuing story of star-crossed lovers Bella and Edward. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural spin. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortaity. (book description)

    Personal note: This was, without a doubt, the most difficult book to get through in the Twilight Saga. I know, that makes it sound like it’s a bad book or something, which is not the case. If you’re going to read this series, you need to include this book. It will be worth it in the end, even if it does make for difficult reading.

  3. Eclipse (Paperback Edition) or (Hardcover Edition) or (Amazon Kindle Edition)


    Edward’s soft voice came from behind. me. I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair wondblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, just like he had in the parking lot, and kissed me again.

    This kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine—like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us.

    As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob—knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

    Readers captivated by Twilight and New Moon will eagerly devour Eclipse, the much-anticipated third book in Stephenie Meyer’s riveting vampire love saga. (book description)

    Personal note: The third book in the Twilight Saga is much easier to read than the second, while still leaving some definite loose ends that will need to be tied up in book 4. Which is a good incentive to make sure to read book 4.

  4. Breaking Dawn (Hardcover Edition) or (Amazon Kindle Edition)
    Breaking Dawn

    WHEN YOU LOVED THE ONE WHO WAS KILLING YOU, IT LEFT YOU NO OPTIONS. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?

    To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fate of two tribes hangs.

    Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life—first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipseseem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed . . . forever?

    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. (book description)

    Personal note: Book 4 is definitely my favorite book from the Twilight Saga. I guess I’m a big sucker for a happy ending or something, and this book definitely pays off in that respect. If there were a 6 stars out of 5 rating, this book would get it.
