What is it about the Twilight books that engrosses you? For me, the immediate attraction Edward and Bella feel for one another is something only fiction can bring to life. The way they are drawn to one another is something I am jealous of. The seamlessly endless nights, the adoration, the innocence of "I love you and there is nothing you can do about it" is what capatured my imagination. I suppose it's a modern day Romeo and Juliet. Who can deny the passion of young love?
But if you step back and compare it to your own life and experiences, who is to say there isn't a little Twilight in all of us? At one point in time, our emotions overruled any sort of logical thinking. Somehow we can relate to the idea of the forbidden fruit. This blog is not meant to be a purely fanatical site dedicated to the characters or the book. Instead it is a dedication to how our own life, after close inspection, relates to the events, quotes, or ideology of the novels....even if it has a sort of "six degrees of separation" effect.
The first challenge is simple, a way to get you inspired for future prompts. Use the cover of Twilight for inspiration. It might be the colors, the image of the apple in hand, or the idea of forbidden fruit. With the right mind set, the possibilities are endless.
