Twilight - Stephenie Meyer, Stephenie Meyer

As someone who grew up with Bram Stoker as the epitome of vampire story tellers, this is just ridiculous. Yes, my 18 year old daughter loved it and so did her friends but I just have to assume that is their lack of maturity because this mash-up of teenage angst, YA romance and a complete rewriting of vampire lore made me fairly embarrassed to have finished the book.

 

I've tagged this as a horror novel because anything with vampires should be a horror novel unless it's a parody.  Vampires that don't inspire terror don't make sense to me.
