Twilight Book Series

From the first time Bella Swan glimpsed Edward Cullen, millions of fans were hooked on author Stephenie Meyer's vampire romance saga. If your kids (or you!) are already fans, the titles on this list will be old friends. If you're new to the Twilight phenomenon, get ready to be sucked in. And beyond the fun, romantic, paranormal story, there's lots to discuss, including the nature of controlling, obsessive relationships and how the movie adaptations compare with the books.
