I am a lover of books and of the Twilight Saga. I have noticed that since these books have came out that people tend to compare other dark romance or vampire novels to these sensational books, calling other books cheap imitations or another twilight wannabe. Has Stephenie Meyer's changed the "Status Quo" of books that fall under this genre?
Tell me what you think.

i don't think it really raised the bar for me.
it's definitely my favorite book but i can like another book a lot too.
i love the blue bloods series and a bunch of other books.
so of course no book can touch it in my library but i still love other books as much as i would even if i haven't read twilight.

I'm not going to compare other vampire books to Twilight because each author's interpretation of the perfect vampire is so different, and there are a lot of really well written vampire books out there, but I'll probably compare love stories to it from now on.
the only other vampire books i've read are the anne rice and blue bloods.
they are all so different. and SM doesn't exactly follow in the lines of waht "real" vampires are supposed to be from other lore. but whatever, i love them all.
but no, she hasn't raised the bar. every on here thinks so because not everyong has been exposes to/appreciated/ better quality writing and literature.
Hey Stephen, I could give you fifty reasons why I should be the one you chose. Those other girls, well, they're beautiful, but would they write a song for you?
book nerd. music freak. movie fanatic.
major obsesser over so many things.
I love to read and write poetry/lyrics and short stories. The layers of music fascinates me. Someday, I want to do movie soundtracks, maybe, or teach. The book to movie transition fascinates me to the extreme. I've been mesmorized by the way Harry Potter and Twilight and so many others have been brought into movies is something I think I would love to do.
