Probably one of the most popular books to hit the shelf in 2006, following through with 2007 sequals. Many girls of their early teen years have absolutely fallen in love with this book, and it's caused a rabid swarm of binders and notebooks sporting the words 'I love Edward Cullen.' I blame the books on a higher rate of girls believing themselves to be dark and alone, and this book has caused quite a few of the people I know to believe they are vampires.

Despite the length of the books, I find it to be a fairly poor piece of literature. I have read the first two, and the two main characters completely lack origionality. Bella is nothing but a sniveling girl who takes advantage of some people, and then grovels at the feet of others. Edward is obviously a vampire thirsty for, ironically, Bella's blood, and at the same time he is abstinant from drinking from humans. In all sense Edward should draw himself away from such a 'dangerous'individual-- that or eat her. Many people fail to notice that the characters circulating around the main pair, such as Alice, Jasper, Jacob, and the rest of the crew are a lot more interesting, and less involved in cliche lives to match those of the main characters.

In any case. It's an entertaining book to read when you have nothing else to do, but there are many better books to read.
Twilight fanatic: I'm an Edwardist. I love Edward. Are you?
Me: No, personally I'm more partial to Jasper.
Twilight fanatic: Well I love Bella too. They're so great together!
Me: Actually, I think Alice is a much better character in the series. The relationship that she has with Jasper is cuter, more secretive, and I find a whole lot more interesting to read about.
Twilight fan: ...Yeah... well -denial-

The book designed for teenage girls to get off to and teenage boys to secretly read under their covers with a flashlight each night trying to feed off of what Edward does in hopes of getting a few pointers in winning girls over. Everyone will have negative things to say about this but all I can say is, congrats Stephanie Meyer; you sure won over the minds of a billion hormonal teenage girls by talking about Edward's chizzled jawline for 4 books straight.
"Really, what's the plot?"
"Uhmm..... IDK but Edward, the vampire boy, IS SO FUCKING HAWWTTT."

a book that just now everyone is obsessed with. You can't look for a bumpersticker on facebook without seeing"I love edward". omg get over yourself! it's a book, it's okay to like a book, but not if it prevents you from living your life normally (or as normal as an obsessee can be)
girl: "omg i love twilight, edward is soo dreamy"
me: "sorry to burst your bubble but he's not real, the dude who pays him is ACTING, please for the sake of humanity, get over yourself"

that book by stephenie meyer which caused the vampire genre to be classified as a "teenage love-story" instead of "badaas stories of hardcore blood drinkers". teenages girls eat this shit up for some reason.
Teenage Girl:OMG ILOVE TWILIGHT EDWARD IS SO HOT!!!1!!!ONE!!!!11!!!1!

Probably the worst series of books,
that later turned into one of the worst movie, ever created.
The story revolves around the protagonist Bella Swan, who is the average every day MaryJane new girl in town, with not-so-special looks, and personality.
But dispite all of that, the most inhumanely gorgeous boy, Edward Cullen, catches interest in her. That is just one of the many cliches displayed in this book.
Another being that he is a vampire who thirsts the most for Bella's blood, yet ironically loves her.
Woah, no one saw any of this coming. I could hardly stomache reading it. Every other sentance is describing Edward's perfect face, and body, and whatever, which leads me to believe Stephenie Meyer has some severe issues living in a sad fantasy to escape the reality she didn't marry someone like that.
Though I did not read the last one, I was told Edward and Bella have sex and produce some kind of mutant half vampire half human offspring. Which furthers Stephenie's perversions. It's a teen book for god's sake, keep that shit to yourself.
The fact that the book is about an average everyday girl like most of us, who finds the perfect boy is the perfect ploy to bring in naive lonely tween girls to purchase this horrible cliche book.
Though dispite how truely awful, and lacking in any literary devices it is, it was turned into a movie. Which proved that the movie industry has gone to shit.
The acting was nothing special, and the scenes moved so fast it seemed unreal. One scene they hate eachother, and the next they're in love. And it is not real love, it is based on shallow, looks-based feelings. But, it was a movie about Twilight, so I expected as much.
For some reason, girls, housewives, and even some boys seem to be obsessed with the book and the sweet things Edward says.
I think people need to get across that it is a BOOK. Therefore Edward will say the right things at the right time. And for that matter, Edward is a figment of Stephenie Meyer's mind. So anything he says is what SHE has made up. If you are "so so so in love with Edward" Then you really feel so about the author.
Fuck this book, and fuck everyone who loves it so much.
Twilight is the epitomey of shit.

An extremely overrated book read by the likes of fangirls. Who adore Edward Cumchunks, even though he's just text and does not exist. Has a very terrible storyline having to do with a stereotypical teen girl falling in love with a vampire. There is absolutely no literature value coming with it.
Twilight fan girl: OMG twilight rulleeezzz , i saw the movie likez 10 times. Edward is like so dreamy and hot.

Person with taste in books : Shut up you ignorant pre-teen. Twilight is a terrible book. Go and read something with actual literature value, like the lord of the rings, a clockwork orange, to kill a mockingbird, 1984, the silence of the lambs the adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Twilight fan girl: Yourrr a faggg, Twilight rulez ur just jelos tat ur not fameos like ppl in da twilight movie. Only gay people hate twilight

Person with taste in books: ....... (walks away)
