here are some reasons I think the books are so popular (and I'm speaking from experience) 1. it takes place in their hometown (I live in Port Angeles which is near Forks and over here and there people are truly obsessed with the series and practically worship it even if the may-akda claimed the town of Forks to be "fictional" and the series makes Forks look bad)
2. The people who have read it have never read a decent book in their lives
3. Most of the people who have read it are lonely teen girls who've never had a boyfriend in real life and believe that this is what true pag-ibig is like
4. The books are popular because crazy teenage girls and their mothers are totally in pag-ibig with Edward and Jacob and only read it because of sinabi characters
because meyer wrote the roll of bella so poorly, that anyone from a teenage girl who wouldn't know a good book if it bit her in the ass, to a putbol mom with too much time on her hands could fit her roll.
I have to admit, I'm a die hard HP fan, but I liked Twilight when it first came out. I can't speak for other Twi-hards, but I can tell you why I enjoyed it the first time I read it:
-It was a "love" story about a human and a vampire (that's what first got my attention). -Bella was an empty shell, so it was easy for readers to "relate" to her, or "put themselves in her place." -The guys were supposed to be "perfect." -Meyer used a lot of big words which, at first glance (or if you weren't paying attention to what words she used) made her seem intelligent. -It was set in the real world, so it didn't strain your brain to try and imagine. -When I first read it (when it first came out) there wasn't a lot of hype about it.
I used to like it. Now I don't. I think I liked it cause...
-Bella was happy. I'd had a big shock when Remus and Tonks died (I still liked Hp, don't go there!) and I was happy to see not everybody had the luck of a squashed-mosquito. - If you read it quickly when you're half asleep you don't pick up all the bad messages (until BD) - Mythical creatures were in it, and I'm a MYTHOLOGY FREAK - The guys were perfect - It was one of the first romance books I'd read, I couldn't compare sappiness or mary-sueism, therefore I didn't notice it - It wasn't the English version
alot of teenage girls think vampiers should spark and look hot and not drink human blood for they can go out with them and ww should have ads and look hot and not chage on a full moon and change any time they get mad at the hot vamiper and have a pag-ibig trinkle is hot and not aonnnying them to deth and that u should need a boy in ur life and nothing els and never ever listen to ur prants and go off and get marred and and have a baby right framed high school and do want ever the boy says and never ever do want ur parnts say to do
