The Twilight Series

Most teenage girls along with melting when the hear the name Justin Bieber, also melt when they hear the name Edward Culled. Edward Cullen is the main character in the Twilight Series written by Stephanie Meyers. These books are fantasy romance novels about vampires, which first came out in 2005.  The series is about a girl named Isabella Swan who is a high school student who moves to Forks, Washington and falls in love with Edward Cullen who is a 104-year old vampire. First starting out as a book, Twilight was the first in the four book series that has now turned into something so much more. The second book is New Moon, then Eclipse and finally Breaking Dawn. The series has been made into movies by Summit Entertainment, and the first Twilight movie came out on November 21, 2008 and was a huge success. All of the other books except for Breaking Dawn have also been made into movies. Breaking Dawn will be split into two parts, part one coming out in November of 2011 and part two not coming out until 2012. Not only has this book series turned into movies, the Twilight brand has become so much more. The faces of Edward Cullen played by Robert Patterson and Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart, have been seen on posters, magazine covers, notebooks, hats, t-shirts, it has been turned into a board game, you can order Bella Swan Halloween costumes, and much more. This simple book turned into such a phenomena that people can’t seem to get enough of.



  1. This is so true, everywhere you go there is Twilight stuff. It has come to the point where even some fans of Twilight, that I know, are getting sick of seeing it everywhere and on everything. They even have the main characters faces on packets of eclipse gum to coincide with the latest movie.

  2. This is unfortunately true. I actually found myself today using the name Edward Cullen as a adjective to describe a particular type of character in movies today. It is scary to see how something so… well to be honest, bad, has managed to sneak it’s way into everyday society and even vernacular.
