Review - Nightlight

This is the synopsis from Amazon:

About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.

And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight.

Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?

Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.

My review: 3 stars

Plot: This was pretty funny, I have to say. I don't dislike the Twilight series (I have read them all myself) but I only really liked Breaking Dawn. This book played up all the ridiculous parts of that book, but almost too much so. It kind of got annoying towards the end.

Characters: Belle was even more naive than Bella is. Belle is a lot funnier though, pretty similar to the girl in the Vampires Suck movie. Edwart was HILARIOUS. Being a computer and video game nerd myself, his antics just cracked me up.

Setting: I thought it was amusing that the town was Switchblade, OR :)

Overall: This wasn't a bad book, but I felt like the humor was over done which led to me just wanting to be done with it.


  1. Hi,
    Just following through
    I was tempted to pick this up the last time I was at the library but I loved the Twilight series so I didn't want to have it spoiled. Thanks for the review

  2. Hi there. New follower. I'm very curious about Nightlight, but I think that I probably wouldn't like it. I am a huge Twilight fan (if that wasn't obvious from my avatar), and I take it more seriously than I probably should. :-)
