If you don't know; Rick Riordan is the #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, among others.
I know I got off topic, but here is a quote of the review:
" I'm a sucker for a good vampire story, so I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. The story was a page-turner: regular teenage girl falls in love with a guy who turns out to be a vampire. I thought the writing needed some editing. If the girl's heart skipped a beat one more time or the vampire smiled his "perfect crooked smile" I was going to fling the book across the room. But hey, I kept reading to see what would happen next. I'm sure the book will be popular. It would make a good movie."
Though I'm not the biggest Twilight fan out there, I could totally agree with what he said about how the book needed some editing or, in my opinion, a thesaurus for new words to use in place of 'murmured'.
