Happy Anniversary, Twilight!

Hooray! It is finally the release day for the Twilight Tenth Anniversary Special Edition!!
I know that Twilight hasn't always had the best reputation, but whether you love it, hate it, or are obsessed with it (like me) you have to remember that it has opened more people up to reading. That is what's important. No matter how you feel about it, more people started picking up books, and that's awesome! 

For me, Twilight holds a very special place in my heart. I have always been a book lover, but I didn't become book obsessed until Twilight. I never knew that YA existed until my cousin Sarah force-fed me to read Twilight. I honestly thought she was crazy when her and her friends became obsessed with this series. She even talked about one day going to Forks, Washington to find her own Edward. I thought I was going to have to convince her parents to commit her, but then I read it and I completely understood! I read each book in a day, back-to-back, and when I was done with the series I felt completely empty. What was I going to read now? That is when I found the YA genre, and it opened me up to thousands of books. Eventually, I wanted to share my thoughts on the books I read, and thus, Book Bite Reviews was born.

Twilight started it all for me, and I couldn't be more grateful to it and my cousin Sarah.

Any day now I should be getting my copy in the mail from Barnes & Noble, and I can't wait to start reading it!

Happy Anniversary, Twilight!!

Description from
Adrienne Speck is the biggest loser in her high school, so she can hardly believe it when a magical boy falls from the heavens to grant her three wishes. He is cool, confident, and definitely popular crowd material—everything Adrienne's not. With his help, she has a chance to get everything she's ever wanted: get kissed, get popular, and get a date for the upcoming dance.

But Adrienne discovers magic isn't all it's cracked up to be, and the road to popularity is paved with humiliation. To make her dreams come true, not only will she have to get the lead in the school play, ask out the most popular guy in school, and stand up to the current queen of popularity, but also keep her personal genie from trashing her room, dressing like a nerd, and revealing to her mom that he's living in their attic. For someone who's supposed to be helping her, he couldn't be making her life any worse. That is, until she starts to fall for him.

When her escape pod falls to earth, crashing in Ypsilanti Bloc, privileged seventeen-year-old Alice Walshe is dashed from the wonderland of wealth and prosperity into a ruined, walled city overrun with militias, gangs, and even cannibals. On top of this horror, her younger brother’s escape pod is missing.

Alice isn’t na├»ve – she’s always known blocs like Ypsilanti exist, left behind after a foodborne illness ravished the country decades earlier and left pockets of severe urban decay in its wake. Men like her father - a major player at Cerulean Holdings - renew the devastated blocs and bring stability back into the areas. But, Ypsilanti is even worse than the tales she’s heard, and rumor has it the bloc is faced with the threat of extermination by Cerulean, not renewal.

Trapped within Ypsilanti’s borders and left for dead, Alice teams up with a pair of teen scavengers who tracked the wreck of her pod. Despite their rough exterior and vulgar speech, they’re her only option for navigating the hostile and violent environment of Ypsilanti, finding her brother, and getting out of No-Man’s-Land alive.
