Twilight Series - For all ages?

[ Edited ]
Hi, I am wondering if I would enjoy this series?  I know it is labeled as YA, but so was Harry Potter and I loved all of those books.  Are there any readers out there that are adults?  How did you like it, is the writing on the juvenile side?  Thanks!!!

Re: Twilight Series - For all ages?

I'm 28 and I love these books.  I'm also part of a discussion about the twilight series on a mom's forum (CafeMom), so there are a lot of people out there that are older than the YA targeted audience. 

I think that SM writes to more than the YA audience just like JKR did.  She has a lot of mature plots that appeal to an older group of readers.

She also has an adult novel called The Host.  You should check that out as well.  Very well written and a great read (a bit boring in the beginning, but worth the wait in the end).

I am 23 and I loved the twilight series...it is not juvenile, I was actually not aware that it was for young adults when I started reading it!  If you enjoyed Harry Potter then I think you will like this series.  Happy reading!!

I don't think someone in 5th grade should read it but I know a bunchy of adults who read it. They are in love with them and don't think it's young.

My friends and I are in high school and we love the books. One of my friends mom reads them and she might like them even more than me which is saying something. Give them a try!
