I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

Ok so everyone has heard about Twilight, and if you haven't, you must have been living under a rock. The story is amazing! A relatable main character, forbidden love, romance, werewolves and vampires what else could you want? Twilight is the book and series that made me fall back in love with books, and especially YA. If you haven't read the series it's a must! (I mean it! You must go out right now, after you read this, and read it!)

Anyway, this isn't about the book, but about the graphic novel vol. 1. I absolutely love this book. Young Kim is an amazing, amazing, did I say amazing artist. I love the fact that most of it is in black and white with a little color in places. The meadow scene is especially beautiful and colorful. Young Kim just captured the characters' beauty and uniqueness, and brings them to life in his illustrations. The Twilight Graphic Novel Vol. 1 is a unique way to read and enjoy the story, and it is a must have for any twilight fan.

-Overall Rating: A+

These covers are just amazing, and look how the two go together to complete the picture of Bella and Edward in the meadow. AMAZING!!!
