The Twilight Craze - the biggest thing in books in Ireland since Harry Potter

TwilightOutside the USA, Ireland has the highest teenage readership of Stephenie Meyer’s "Twilight" books. Written by a 34 year old mother from Phoenix, Arizona, the books have catapulted a new heroine, Bella Swan, into the lives of Irish teenagers. A young adult herself, Bella’s life is turned upside down when she falls in love with Edward Cullen after she moves to a new town. Nothing unusual about that you might say… but Edward Cullen is a vampire and it could be very dangerous for Bella to get too close! Stephenie Meyer is currently outselling Marian Keyes, Cecelia Ahern and even JK Rowling in Ireland.
