What the hell people!!!! It's like romance book of the years. The movies may not have been as good as the books, but the books were really beyond awesome and captivating!
Yes I'll admit my love for Twilight (it has my heart). It's the first book I ever read before getting into reading. And thanks to Twilight, I'm into not just reading but writing too. In fact, my first writing was a fanfic based on Twilight, and as of now I am working on it by heavily editing the work of a 13 year old (lol) and will be publishing it on my website soon (many changes are coming).
I really don't understand why so many people hate it. Writing should be fun and FICTION! Meaning, you can do whatever you want when it comes to writing. Fiction is based on making up worlds and things while you write away, and that's what Stephenie Meyer did! Yeah she may have made sexier vampires, werewolves that you don't form with a bite, she may have changed things of what we're used to reading, and that's the point: she's introduced us to a couple of new things. She made a lot of changes to the vampires and werewolves world and that's called creativity and she's not afraid to change. The world changes every day.
Twilight is a great love story. Aside from the extreme fiction behind it, in between the lines you read there's a great story line with a great romance. Hey, it may be a preppy type of story, and not everything has to be so dark and brooding like all other vampire stories.
Just wanted to let this all off my chest. I am rereading the series (I don't even remember my count of how many times I've read it, lol).
