Last night at 12:01 AM I, along with a theater full of teens, gasped with delight when the opening scene from the movie Twilight began. The delight was evident again with the first appearance of Jacob and even more so with the first appearance of Edward. This movie is great! Agree with me or not, I think we can all declare with full confidence that this blockbuster hit is going to make the Twilight Saga even more popular with readers of all ages.
So, the question I’d like to pose is as follows: what’s best to recommend to readers who want more? When vampire books are what they want the upcoming PPYA list “Dead, Dying and the Undead” will be great. But more often I find that it is the innocent romance that they love about Twilight. In that case, what books do folks recommend? Does anyone have a book with romantic elements that they recommend with full confidence? Teens who aren’t die-hard fans might not already know about Midnight Sun but beyond that, I’m always scrambling for a recommendation that I feel will really satisfy. And a final question, are Twilight fans going to find the “more” that they are after by reading Stephenie Meyer’s The Host?
