Twilight by Stephenie Meyer This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

May 30, 2008
I was never in love with vampires until Twilight came out. I didn’t know it was possible, but Stephenie Meyer changed the stereotypical blood-sucking vampire into a beautiful god-like creature.

In Twilight, an average high school girl, Bella Swan, falls in love with one of the most beautiful boys at her new school, Edward, who happens to be a vampire. What does one call a stunning, mysterious vampire and his stunning, mysterious vampire family? I believe “The Cullens” would suffice.

The author’s style and characters will glue your hands to the book and your eyes to the page. In no time, the book is over. But don’t worry – there are three sequels: New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.

Twilight is well written from Bella’s point of view. It feels as though a movie is playing in your head. If you don’t feel that way, have no fear, the actual movie comes out November 21.

Twilight is such a magnificent book that it was a New York Times bestseller. Who would have thought that the idea for such an astonishing book could come from a dream the author had?

The theme is love conquers all, even the supernatural. Nothing stands in the way of love for Edward and Bella. Or does it?

Meyer’s style of writing will have you wanting to believe that there are gorgeous vampires roaming our world and just hopefully there will be Edwards for all of the girls who have fallen in love with this fictional yet breathtaking character. Since the characters’ love is forbidden, it only makes it better. ­After all, forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest.

Unless you've read the books, you can't say it's a bad book and that is just a review...why don't you find out for yourself if the book sounds bad, because you a little too opinionated to say anything

Steph is a excelent writter, obviously her style of writting is not of your liking, but that doesnt mean you have to put her down.

I don't see all the hype about Twilight. It's an OK book. It's not the best.

I agree. I liekd it before it was famous. Then I realized it's kind of dumb. But not horrible.

I care about vampires, just not sparkly ones...

In my opinion, Buffy should've staked Edward a while ago...DRACULA FTW!!! 

Real vampires (and real men for that matter...) DON'T sparkle.
