Memory Lane Monday #5 ~ Breaking Dawn Memory Post

Memory Lane Monday is a feature that is hosted by 
Amber at Paradise of Pages 

Amber and I have been talking about wanting to re-read some of our favorite books and how we feel like we never have time trying to keep up with the latest and greatest books for our blogs.  So, we came up with a great plan, let's start our own meme and get everyone else joining in on the re-reading fun as well!  We are, of course, still planning to keep up with current reads but we are intertwining old favorites at the same time.  

Here's how Memory Lane Monday will work:

  • Each week the co-hosts will trade off with recapping when it is a re-read or what they have heard so far about the book and the other co-host will put up their review. 
  • The participants can read anything that they remember reading in the past, or something that they have wanted to read that has been around for a while and just haven't gotten around to reading it yet for whatever reason.
  • Participants can decide if they want to recap the book before reading it or just put up a review of what they read.
  • Anyone can join in, just please link back to our blogs as well as add your name to the linky so we can hop around and see what everyone is reading.
  • Please put our banner on your post as well, so we all look the same!
  • We ask you kindly to follow BOTH of our blogs.
  • Most importantly remember to just have fun! :)

We will be providing each week a linky that you will be able use to link your posts for us and everyone else to see as well. All we ask is for you to put up our banner as well as a link back to both hosts on your post. 

We hope you enjoy doing this meme as much as I am sure we will!

This week I am doing my Memory Post for 
Breaking Dawn

Breaking Dawn (Twilight, #4)
"Don't be afraid," I murmured. "We belong together."
I was abruptly overwhelmed by the truth of my own words. This moment was so perfect, so right, there was no way to doubt it.
His arms wrapped around me, holding me against him... It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire.
"Forever," he agreed.

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, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates 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 Eclipse-seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed... forever?

My Memories

When I found the Twilight series,  Eclipse had just come out and the books were barely a blip on the radar.  I waited so patiently for this book to come out and at the time I didn't have hardly anyone to talk to about it.  

I was excited to finally get to Edward and Bella's wedding.  

I was anxious for the resolution between Bella and Jacob not knowing how things were going to work out with Bella getting turned into a vampire and if she would ever be able to be friends with Jacob again.  

There were so many loose ends to tie up, and then the way she brought Renesme (worst name ever by the way) into the book which made problems with the Volturi.  It was so much to digest.  

I loved the way Bella was such a terrific vampire from the start.  Life didn't seem to agree with her before then and now she was living happily and easily in her new form.

I remember feeling satisfied with how the series ended up.  I was glad all was right with the world in the end and I look forward to revisiting the emotions that came along with this series finale.
