  8. 8. Pre-teen and teenage girls will more likely enjoy Twilight . It is highly romantic and suspenseful, with a lot of drama. Teenage girls will fall in love with Edward’s character, and they will imagine themselves as Bella.
  9. 9. I recommend Twilight to others because it is a beautifully written story with romance and suspense. There is the element of the forbidden love between Bella and Edward that will have you turning the pages to see what they’ll do next. The theme of good vs. evil is one that is very prevalent in almost all vampire novels, and it helps to make for an exciting read.
