    The Psychology of Twilight

    Note: I received this book via Netgalley.

    If you want to know what the hype is about Twilight then this is the good place to start. This book is jammed packed with a collection of chapters written by different specialists in different fields. They are able to effectively explain the relationship feelings of the characters, Bella’s perspective of life and death, and the swoon worthy Edward Cullen.

    Overall, the book was extremely interesting with the contributors’ difference perspective. It is a entertaining light read.
