There are two sides to every story....You know Bella and Edward, now get to know Beau and Edythe. When Beaufort Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring Edythe Cullen, his life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With her porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edythe is both irresistible and enigmatic.What Beau doesn't realize is the closer he gets to her, the more he is putting himself and those around him at risk. And, it might be too late to turn back....With a foreword and afterword by Stephenie Meyer, this compelling reimagining of the iconic love story is a must-read for Twilight fans everywhere.

I started this about a month ago, and I still haven‘t finished. Maybe I‘ll try and come back to it another time, but this is kind of brutal. It makes me wonder if I would like reading the Twilight books still, now that I‘m older...

I‘d be lying if I said I didn‘t love reading the Twilight books a million years ago. Why not a reimagining?

Life and Death - Stephenie Meyer
So, I liked this book pretty well. And I loved the alternate ending! But, the Beau and Edythe just didn't grab me as much as Edward and Bella did. Because of the swap, some of the scenes were down right comical - Beau riding on Edythe's back, for example. He compared himself to a Gorilla riding a gazelle lol. It was a good read for the most part. Now I have to reread Twilight and see if I can spot all the changes!

When I heard Meyer was releasing a new version of twilight a few years ago I made a bee line to the book shop to grab a copy. I wasn‘t sure how this would go, it was to be different obviously and I honestly loved the original twilight. But I truely enjoyed reading this. Loved Edythe. It‘s not for everyone but I enjoyed the new rendition.

Meh. 2.5 stars. Meyer gender swaps Bella & Edward to become Beau & Edythe to fight allegations that the book is sexist, & somehow makes the book even more sexist. I‘m not sure how that is even possible. Considering that the first 3/4 of the book is almost word for word Twilight with the names swapped, and I love me some Twilight, I don‘t know how it got so boring, but it did. The twist ending was okay, but my heart broke for my favorite, Charlie.

TheSpineView I agree! I wished that only Bella and Edward were swapped around and all the other characters had stayed the same. I also thought that Beau should have been a shy, geeky, smart guy kind of guy. 8mo

I couldn't resist sharing this double parody! 🤣
Starring Duke and Missi from Daria Cohen's Vampair Series. Safe to say this was NOT the original ending of Ms. Cohen's animation 😅

Yay! Twilight reimagined! I think Meyer was right to do the original story in the gender that she chose to, but that the story totally works flipped around. It gave some interesting insights into the thoughts and backgrounds of the characters, even though strictly speaking they were different characters - they were supposed to be the opposite gender version of them.

Very interesting and enjoyable. Well done Stephenie Meyer!

I did not like this gender swap version at all. Im not sure if it was because it was young adult or seeing Beau so "weak". It just came off a little cheesy. It is cool that Stephenie Meyer would do this because its interesting to get another point of view plus the gender swap in top of it. I would not recommend.

RadicalReader @rather_be_reading makes me curious if they were to do a film adaption of this 1y
The_Heeler_Booklife I wish she came out with Midnight Sun instead of this. 😭 1y
MeesesPieces @rather_be_reading I wasn‘t happy with this version either. I mean in the long run how was Edward going to give birth to Renesme? It was interesting but definitely not something I recommend. 1y

Recent #bookmail: an order from Zulily that I completely forgot about because it‘s been so long since I placed the order. ???

Tagged book is the one I‘m most giddy about because #Twilight is my favorite series to hateread, by which I mean I hate it but also love reading it. (I rewrite it in my head as I go while simultaneously raging again shitty misogynistic & abusive tropes. It relaxes me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) #bibliophileconfessions

Lmstraubie I found this one to be very powerful 1y
lauren.lerner @Lmstraubie — I‘m usually wary of Picoult as I tend to get bored by her formula, but heard enough good things about this one to give it a try. Sounds like I made a good pick! 1y
Lynnsoprano I‘m not a huge fan of Picoult, but Small Great Things was excellent. 1y

I don‘t care what anyone says or thinks. I love the Twilight series and I will die on that hill 🤣🤣. I‘m glad I found this book yesterday because I had heard quite awhile ago about her possibly writing this but didn‘t realize she actually did. Looking forward to reading it.

Man... I forgot how slow the first book is. I mean, it's a bit different with the gender roles reversed, though to be honest I keep thinking Beau is a girl. Makes the book a /tad/ more interesting. =P Bella/Edythe 4 life.

I definitely think this book was written because those that fell in love with the story in the beginning are going to buy it regardless. I am enjoying the gender swap and how the story is the same but seems entirely different at the same time. It's holding my attention, so I will count that as a win.

Totally taking inspiration from @Jas16 's post regarding the #moneygrabber prompt. Like E.L. James, this is purely a money making enterprise by Stephanie Meyer that adds nothing new to her saga. 🙄

Jas16 Lol. Good choice. 3y
DGRachel I find this kind of thing offensive. 3y
Zelma @DGRachel my post or the book? 😳 3y

Leniverse Same with the fourth Millenium book. Or that's worse, actually. Pure money grabbing from Stieg Larsson's relatives. I'm never reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. 😠 3y
DGRachel @Zelma Omg! Not you. Absolutely not you!! I'm so sorry you thought that! Totally Stephanie Meyer's greed. When the anniversary of Twilight came around, I read she did the gender swap thing because she figured it would be easy and she was still mad at the betrayal of her friend who leaked chapters of a different retelling she was working on. She totally threw this together to capitalize on the anniversary. No respect for her readers. (edited) 3y
Zelma @DGRachel whew! 😆😆😆 glad i didn't offend. 😋 yup, pure greed. I remember the other retelling being leaked and the debacle around it. What a mess. This was such a waste of time a print. I hate when authors do that. 3y
Cinfhen I agree with @Leniverse and the rest of you guys! 3y
Sayantika Will she ever publish those books that were written from the point of view of Edward and Jacob?? 2y
