The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide

by Jamie Sanford on May 17, 2011

The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide is now available after a very long wait by Twilight fans around the world.

As many of you know, I am into Twilight.  Even though after being exposed to some Twilight fan fiction, I think I might like that better.

I picked up Twilight after seeing the trailer for the movie and thinking that Robert Pattinson was hot.  I had previously been a Buffy/Angel watcher and so enjoyed some vampires, so it was a natural progression.  I bought a cheap paperback copy of Twilight and started reading.  About a day later, I was completely sucked into the vortex that so many have fallen into as well.  I was out buying New Moon almost immediately, only to then find out that Eclipse and Breaking Dawn were only in hardcover! Luckily, my husband indulged me and bought me the Twilight box set containing all of the books.  I plowed through the rest quickly, only stopping to occasionally sleep, go to work, and text my friend Christina about how I felt about the major plot points.

Anyway, this Twilight Official Guide was already in the works before the first movie even came out.  However, it got pushed back and pushed back and I guess it is OK.  This book is packed full of information about all of the major characters in the series, it has a plot synopsis, illustrations from the artist who did the Twilight graphic novel, etc.  With another 6 months to wait before Breaking Dawn: Part 1, The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide will keep a fan busy for at least a few days.

The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide is available from Amazon for $13.88.
