Twilight! (Stephenie Meyer: Twilight; New Moon; Eclipse; Breaking Dawn)

Posted by nybookworm on July 18, 2010

Hi, my name is NY Bookworm and I am an adult who loves the Twilight series.  Ok, love may be too strong but I would lend them to you  if you told me you were looking for a gripping commute read (discreetly, of course or perhaps even using a kindle).   The Twilight books, like the Harry Potter books and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, are children’s/teen books that have found a wider audience among adults for a good reason – they are well-written, imaginative and entertaining.  As I’m sure many of you know by now, the books tell the story of the “forbidden” romance between a seventeen-year old girl, Bella, and her strikingly handsome vampire classmate Edward.  The romance  is drawn out over four books that introduce the reader to the world of good and bad vampires, werewolves and the rainy northwest.  I have not met anyone who read Twilight but managed to restrain themselves from buying the other three books- New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.  If you manage(d) to read only one I’d like to hear from you in the comments. 

You can buy all four Twilight books at:  http://www.amazon.com/Twilight-Saga-Collection-Stephenie-Meyer/dp/0316031844
