If you liked 'Twilight'

The movie Twilight has just been released and if you didn’t know about the books that spawned the movie, you soon will.

Teens have made the best-selling love saga Twilight by Stephanie Meyer a multimedia sensation, with 17 million copies of the Twilight series in print, the CD of the movie sound track at No. 1 on Billboard's chart, and more than 350 fan sites.

The first book in the series has been chosen as the New York Times Editor’s Choice, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year, Amazon’s “best book of the decade … so far,” Teen People’s “Hot List” pick, and the American Library Association’s “Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults” and “Top Teen Books for Reluctant Readers.”

Fauquier County Public Library has multiple copies of Meyer’s books in print and CD format, and, if you just can’t get enough of this genre, or you are waiting for a title to be returned, the library has a book list entitled If you liked "Twilight” that is helpful for finding similar books.
