I actually didn't know anything about these books until I saw the preview for the movie adaptation of the first one when I went to see part one of Breaking Dawn
. It's funny that that's how I ended up reading the first Twilight
novel too. Seeing the previews of the adaptations led me to the novels since I never like to watch the movie first then read the novel.
Have you read the Twilight Sagwa
? It's the last series that I really got into.
