I got Breaking Dawn for Christmas and started reading it shortly before the new year. In the beginning of January, I came down with the stomach flu and was stuck in bed for 3 days. Once the worst of the flu had passed, I spent my time laying in bed reading. Breaking Dawn was the first book I finished.
I had glimpsed spoilers of BD and couldn't wait to read it. BD was definitely my favorite book out of the four. It seemed to me like the story had finally come full circle. Without giving any details away, I will say that I was pleased with the way things fell into place. While napping through my flu delusions, I dreamt that I had a similar experience as Bell in BD. It was quite an experience to wake up and recognize that no, I was not in BD. Darn.
