We don’t know of any teenagers who read the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and had a bad word to say about it. However, parents and educators were less than impressed by the relationship between vampire Edward Cullen and human, Bella Swan. And because of that, Associated Press have reported that the American Library Association has rated Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels at number 5 on their list of most ‘challenged books’.
The Saga tells the story of the romance between Edward and Bella and the two are abstinent
until the final book of the series. Barbara Jones, director of the association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom told OK!:
“Vampire novels have been a target for years and the Twilight books are so immensely popular that a lot of the concerns people have had about vampires are focused on her books.”
Did you have a problem with any of the themes in Breaking Dawn?
