Throwback Thursday - Twilight

Five years ago the hottest selling books were Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series, with all three volumes in the top 20 for the year. Although no one can call any of them classic literature, they told a compelling classic story of young love with serious obstacles, from family to species. The story grew with each volume and the readers anticipated the next volume breathlessly. It was an excellent phenomenon and kept a lot of people reading.

Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Never Too Fond of Books!

Here’s how it works:
  1. Pick any media (or non-media item) released more than 5 years ago. Remember to keep it book-related!
  2. Write up a short summary (include the title, author, and cover art, if applicable) and an explanation of why you love it.
  3. Link up your post at Never Too Fond of Books.
  4. Visit as many blogs as you can, reminisce about books you loved, and discover some “new” books for your TBR list – or some other classic!
Thanks for participating, and we look forward to seeing what you choose to remember!

  1. You know, I really appreciate you picking this series.

    I fell in love with it the first time I opened it (long before it became an international craze) and I always appreciate it when someone quietly remembers what it was like to simply read the book(s) and enjoy.
