The first Twilight book ever


What was the world's first Twilight book?

The first book in the Twilight series that’s written by Stephenie Meyer has the most interesting story of the 3 in the series. Not necessarily in plot line, as that’s all a matter of personal preference, but in the way that it came to be. Stephenie Meyer did not have much of a writing background before she went to bed on the night of June 2, 2003. The dream she had that night was as clear to her as the actual date still is. She says that night she had a dream about a vampire that was in love with a young human girl but also had a severe thirst for her blood and subsequently, desire to kill her at the same time. Very shortly after having this dream, Meyer wrote what is now Chapter 13 in the first book and within 3 months, had the complete Twilight book written. She wrote and edited the entire novel by herself and she presented it to Little, Brown & Company who in turn, offered her a deal of $750,000 for a series of 3 books. From there, Meyer’s fame skyrocketed as she became the biggest selling author in 2008, 3 years after that original book was written.

The first Twilight book is about a young girl by the name of Bella who moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father. Shortly after she’s introduced to her new school and friendly classmates, there’s one boy in particular, Edward Cullen that befriends her, even though at first the two seem to have a distinct dislike for the other. Throughout the beginning of the book, odd things keep happening in which Edward seems to display super-human strengths and capabilities. Through this and speaking with an old friend from the area, Bella determines that Edward is a vampire and although he does not drink human blood, he still thirsts for it. Once they fall in love, things become even more troubled as another group of vampires moves into the area and causes much trouble for Bella, Edward, and the entire Cullen vampire family.

The first Twilight book shows a young girl’s hands holding an apple. The entire cover is black and white, except for the apple which is a bright red. The apple is to symbolize the forbidden fruit, which is often referred to as an apple, that’s spoken of in the book of Genesis in The Bible. This represents the forbidden love between Edward and Bella and the red symbolizes the blood that the vampires thirst after. Twilight was published in hardcover on October 5, 2005.
