Twilight by Stephenie Meyers is a very addicting series. I just finished the first book and I can't wait to get my hands on the next one. I think I may have to buy it. Every copy in all our county libraries are on hold or checked out. I am 108 on the waiting list. Yes, I can't wait any longer.
I am not into vampire or zombie books, but Meyers' writing is so enthralling that I couldn 't put it down. The physical and emotional tension between Edward and Bella, the two main characters, is so strong that you can't help feel breathless after certain scenes. What I really liked about this book is that it's about the relationship between the vampires and the rest of the humans. Mainly with Bella. In a sense it's a love story but with so many complications.
It is a young adult book, so don't expect classic literature writing. It's an entertaining book and will make a great movie. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns into a t.v. show on the CW. But of course it will be ruined and turned into a "Gossip Girl" or something. So read the books.
