Vampire Romance - Go Team Edward!

It seems the popularity of the Twilight series is gaining new heights with the release of New Moon at theaters. My ten year old daughter Michelle, plans to make the Twilight series characters the theme of her Valentine Box for school this year. She received nice color pictures of all the New Moon stars in a kid's meal from a fast food restaurant, and plans to paste them on her box. She is diligently searching stores for New Moon Valentines to give to her friends, but has not found them yet.

Book #1: Twilight
Book #2: New Moon
Book #3: Eclipse
Book #4: Breaking Dawn

I have read all the books in the series, and I must admit I enjoyed them. I did receive some negative opinions from a few friends, but the majority were positive. I believe the target audience is teens, but many adults like them too. For those of you who have not read the books, the main character is Bella who falls in love with Edward, who turns out to be a vampire. It turns out that hanging around with vampires proves to be challenging and somewhat unhealthy for Bella. Their love story is very compelling with suspense, action, and romance. A good read for tweens, teens, and adults.

  1. I should add an explanation for the exciting competition between Vampire Edward and hunky local Quileute Indian boy Jacob for Bella's favor which inspired Team Edward and Team Jacob!
