Rowling,’ says Huie. ‘Twilight,’ Meyer’s first book in her girl-friendly vampire series, is on 53 top 10 lists on’s online community. ‘This is the best thing in the universe.’ I can’t wait to finish the next book.’ Reader commentary like this explained why ‘Eclipse,’ the third title in Meyer’s series, became the fastest selling youth-adult title within one week of its August 2007 release.”
