Told through a series of four novels, written by Stephanie Meyer and released between 2004 and 2008, this Young Adult fantasy romance has exploded beyond its initial category to capture legions of fans. Adding her own twist to classic vampire lore, Meyer created vampires with less prominent fangs, as well as the abilities to survive daylight and consume animal blood, paving the way for the unorthodox relationship between Bella and Edward. Meyer was inspired by literary classics, with Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, Wuthering Heights and A Midsummer Night’s Dream providing a loose structure for the saga.
