Why is The Twilight Saga called a saga if its only made of four books?
The term "saga" is the term for the old Icelandic stories about ancient Scandinavian and Germanic history, about the early voyages of the Vikings, about immigration to Iceland and of feuds between different Icelandic families. How many volumes it has, has nothing to do with it.
Stephenie Meyer is incompetent enough to dub her series a "saga", not knowing what the term "saga" means. Twilight is not a saga, and never will be. It's a series.
Hope that helps! :)

In Bella's perspective, there are four books. These are Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. There will be a book coming out in Edward's perspective called Midnight Sun. To find out more information, please visit the Stephenie Meyer Website in the Related Links section. A novella of Eclip…se has been written in the point of view of the newborn army. It is called The short second life of Bree Tanner. There is also an illustrated guide of the Twilight saga. (MORE)
Twilight Bella Swan moves from Phoenix, Arizona to live with her father in Forks, Washington to allow her mother to travel with her new husband, a minor league baseball player. After moving to Forks, Bella finds herself involuntarily drawn to a mysterious, handsome boy, Edward Cullen. She eventual…ly learns that he is a member of a vampire family who drinks animal blood rather than human. Edward and Bella fall in love, but James, a sadistic vampire from another coven, is drawn to hunt down Bella. Edward and the other Cullens defend Bella. She escapes to Phoenix, Arizona, where she is tricked into confronting James, who tries to kill her. She is seriously wounded, but Edward rescues her and they return to Forks, having killed James. New Moon Edward and his family leave Forks because he believes he is endangering Bella's life. Bella falls into a deep depression, until she develops a strong friendship with Jacob Black, who she discovers can shape shift into a wolf. Jacob and the other wolves in his tribe must protect her from Victoria, a vampire seeking to avenge her mate, James' death, by killing Bella. A misunderstanding occurs, and Edward believes Bella is dead. Edward decides to commit suicide in Volterra, Italy but he is stopped by Bella, who is accompanied by Edward's sister, Alice. They meet with the Volturi, a powerful vampire coven, and are released only on the condition that Bella be turned into a vampire in the near future. Bella and Edward are reunited, and she and the Cullens return to Forks. Eclipse The vampire Victoria (James's mate from Twilight ) has created an army of "newborn" vampires to battle the Cullen family and murder Bella for revenge. Meanwhile, Bella is impelled to choose between her relationship with Edward and her friendship with Jacob. Edward's vampire family and Jacob's werewolf pack join forces to successfully destroy Victoria and her vampire army. In the end, Bella chooses Edward's love over Jacob's and agrees to marry him. Breaking Dawn Bella and Edward are married, but their honeymoon is cut short when Bella discovers that she is pregnant. Her pregnancy progresses rapidly, severely weakening her. She nearly dies giving birth to her and Edward's half-vampire-half-human daughter, Renesmee but Edward injects Bella with his venom to save her life by turning her into a vampire. A vampire from another coven sees Renesmee and mistakes her for an "immortal child". She informs the Volturi, as the existence of such beings violates vampire law. The Cullens gather vampire witnesses who can verify that Renesmee is not an immortal child. After an intense confrontation, the Cullens and their witnesses convince the Volturi that the child poses no danger to vampires or their secret, and they are left in peace by the Volturi. Midnight Sun The unfinished novel of Twilight in Edward Cullen's point of view. (MORE)
As many of you heard, when Stephenie Meyer was half way writing the book, it somehow got leaked on to the internet. She decided to stop for awhile as she doesn't like the fans, readers,etc... to read a book before it is completed, published,edited,etc.... I am not sure when it will come out but, I …do hope Stephenie Meyer will finish the book as soon as possible and publish it! (MORE)
The saga contains four books: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. There is also a shorter novel about one of the minor characters in the series: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Meyer did begin to write another book with the story of Twilight from Edwards' perspective, but the p…roject was halted after several chapters were leaked online. It will probably remain unfinished. (MORE)
it will probaly be rated PG-13, because in the book they don't really describe any of the inapropriate parts
It depends on who you ask but I think the best book is Breaking Dawn. So far, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn are out. Midnight Sun will be out someday...
Twilight New Moon Eclipse Breaking Dawn possibly Midnight Sun FYI -- the 5th book, Midnight Sun, is not yet complete. Midnight Sun is currently on indefinate hold because the first 12 chapters were leaked on the internet. this happened because Stephanie Meyer released a rough draft of the… fist 12 chapters to some of her associates and one of them was leaked. Stephanie Meyer asked all of her fans to PLEASE DON'T READ MIDNIGHT SUN UNTILL IT IS RELEASED OFFICIALLY. So please listen to her, PLEASE! Yah of course!!!! Here, I'll give you the names..... BY THE WAY Just in case there was any confusion. Midnight sun isn't the fith book of the Twilight saga. It's just Twilight from Edward Cullens point of view x (MORE)
Twilight: October 5, 2005 New Moon: September 6, 2006 Eclipse: August 7, 2007 Breaking Dawn: August 2, 2008
the whole saga in order is 1. Twilight 2. New Moon 3. Eclipse 4. Breaking Dawn 5 Midnight Sun (although it cant come out for a while because someone illegaly put on the internet for more info go to stepheniemeyer.com) . Yep but technically Midnight Sun is just Twilight but from …Edward p.o.v (MORE)
Actually, there is only 4 books. But, Stephenie Meyer started working on a book called "Midnight Sun". Midnight Sun is what happened in Twilight, but in Edward's point of view. But, since the first 12 chapters were leaked on the internet, because she released a rough draft of them to some of her ass…ociates and it accidently got leaked on the internet by one of them. Stephenie is asking fans, and all others, to please not read Midnight Sun until it releases officaly. Also, right now, there is a book called "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner". Bree Tanner is one of the newborn vampires in the third novel, Eclipse. Bree Tanner has her own book now, it is available in stores for you to purchase. So, techinally, that is the 5th book in the saga. Midnight Sun can be called the 6th book. Actually, there is only 4 books. But, Stephenie Meyer started working on a book called "Midnight Sun".

TWILIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cuz it gives better description and cuz it starts the saga off it is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beyond the four books already released, there is no current plan for another book in the series. As stated by the author, the story is finished; there is nothing more that could be written about them. A retelling of Twilight named Midnight Sun , which tells the story from Edward's perspecti…ve, was partially drafted, but stopped after copies were leaked on the internet. The author has stated she may return to finish the story at a later point if the buzz around it dies down, but has decided to find another project. (MORE)
Twilight- The apple symbolises the forbidden fruit. The bible story of Adam and Eve. Edward is Bella's forbidden fruit, it is also representing the same but as Edward and Bella's forbidden love.. New Moon- The ruffled tulip has no significance, as this cover was the only one in the series where Ste…phenie did not input. The title refers to the darkest phase of the lunar cycle, indicating that it is about the darkest time of Bella's life.. Eclipse- The tearing ribbon symbolises how Bella is torn between Edward and Jacob.. Breaking Dawn- The pawn and Queen chess pieces represent Bellas transformation; from weak to strong. (MORE)
my fav twilight books in order from 1-4 is twilight eclipse breaking dawn new moon but it will change when midnight sun comes out ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mine goes 1. Twilight 2. Breaking Dawn 3. Eclipse 4. New Moon. ///////////////…///////////////. (Eclipse awesome I love Jacob Black) (Breaking dawn great love story) (twilight its ok) (New Moon I can't stand it) (MORE)
there is going to be midnight sun wich is twilight in Edwards point of view.and then stephine Meyer already released The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.and then there is going to be a 7th book about jakes and renesemees releshinship.
there is no sixth book because Stephanie Meyer stopped writing midnight sun, but she is writing a new book about the girl in eclipse who got killed by Jane, her name is bree. It is going to be called "The Life of Bree Turner" or something like that. Yep, its out soon and you were close. It's cal…led 'The short life of Bree Tanner' (MORE)
No, after Breaking Dawn there isn't going to be any continuation. The only possibility is another book Stephanie Meyer is thinking about writing called Midnight Sun, which is Twilight told from Edward's perspective.
Stephanie Meyer has sold 4 books so far and she is writing another now.. The books are;. Twilight . New Moon . Eclipse . Breaking dawn . Midnight sun(not written yet.)
Sorry but this is what I think. . The Apple- Bella is the forbiden fruit for Edward . The flower- How Bella smells to Edward . The broken ribbin- represents choice . The Chess Piece- Bellas progress in the story . Hope I'm right>>>>>>>>>>
Twilight, New Moon, Eclipce, and Breaking Dawn, but in the movies there are two parts to Breaking Dawn:)
\nThe four books are: \nTwilight\nNew Moon\nEclipse\nBraking Dawn\nStephenie Meyer is also talking about writing another book; Midnight Sun. It would be Twilight written all over again, except in Edward's perspective.
Of course they are! I read all of them and they have good points of view. Stephanie Meyer is a very good writer! If she published books that are gonna or already are movies then that is some good work! ~Alexludwigluvr5126~ It's pretty good. But I recommend Percy Jackson series. It is amazing not on…ly full of romance, but mythology and adventure. Older people over the age of 14 and people that loves romance should read the last book called The Last Olympian. Rick Riordan made #1 popular mystery books. It's called the Tres Navarre series. And watch the new The Lightning Thief trailers because it would make you drop your jaw. It is amazing! And it's a little crazy because on this site when you type Taylor Lautner or Logan Lerman so many people chose Logan Lerman! I totally agree he is so hot. He is the one that will play as Percy Jackson. Keep in touch with Twilight Saga books but start the Percy Jackson and The Olympians books. ~Sharooisthebest~ (MORE)
The answer to this question really depends on personal preference. (warning: spoilers below) . Some would say Twilight, as it is the original. . Jacob fans might pick New Moon because Edward is gone for most of it. . Edward fans might pick Eclipse because Bella chooses Edward over Jacob. . Peo…ple who just like happy endings might pick Breaking Dawn because everything works out and everyone gets a happily ever after. . Breaking Dawn is great because there are a lot of unexpected events and despite it's length it isn't at all boring. Twilight is about finding love, New Moon is about losing love, Eclipse is about choosing love and Breaking Dawn is about making love. (MORE)
I think that all of them are great! BUT if you really had to decide it truly does depend on your personality. I loved New Moon because of the drama, I loved Twilight because of the emotion and new experiences, I loved eclipse because of the action, and last but CERTAINLY not least I LOVED breaking d…awn because of all the detailed description and the emotional rollercoaster and page turning events. Over all I think Breaking Dawn is the best! :) But I really do LOVE them all so it is VERY HARD to decide. (MORE)
The first book is called Twilight. ____________________________________________ 1. Twilight 2. New Moon 3. Eclipse 4. Breaking Dawn 5. Midnight Sun ( Twilight from Edward's point of view) Possibly!!
At all good bookstores!!! You will probaly have to buy them seperatly, but most bookshops have special offers on most of the time!!! WHSmith's and borders are good for the books, they have them in most of the time!!! Amazon are good but expencive, but you can get them as a whole set there. Just brow…se around and see who's cheapest. (MORE)
The second book is New Moon and it has a red flower on the cover.Twilight-apple in handsNew Moon-red flowerEclipse-red ribbonBreaking Dawn- chess setThis is the order. They also have movies for three of the books.Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse.Be sure to check out the new comedy - Vampires Suck
Midnight sun is suppost to be coming out soon, but it was leaked by some person so it will be re-started when Staphenie is feeling better... It is about Edward's version of twilight.
i really enjoyed reading the twilight saga books but my least favourite was new moon..it got a bit boring. I am a bit over twilight because the media doesn't stop talking about it everywhere!
my fav was either eclisp or breaking dawn.. they were more exicting. i didnt realy like newmoon...kinda booring but still good
No. There are many adults who read it too. The twilight saga was written for teens and adults to read. i would personally recommend everyone check it out :)
Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. Then they have The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner which is an Eclipse Novella.
Twilight is a time of day, just when the sun is setting "the milky twilight settled on the atmosphere Edward was creating" (quote!!) so the books are twilight, new moon, eclipse(i can handle the clouds, but i cant hold back and eclipse
Yes, there are four books in the series. This is the order of them- Twilight, New moon, Eclipse, and Breaking dawn
say what, u didn't write anything. Plz write somethin so i can answer it. Thank u yes, please do use this site the way it's supposed to be used. you're supposed to ask a question, not write some random babble
If your wondering how the Movies got started, they are books. Stephenie Meyer wrote the series and now they have been made into Movies. Twilight is the first book (Also first movie), New Moon second book and movie, Eclipse third book and is being made at the present and then Breaking Dawn the fou…rth book in the series (MORE)
yes, the twilight saga is a group of four books by Stephenie Meyer. The first book was published in 2005 (i think) by little brown and company There are various books based on and related to the twilight saga. There are numerous books with puzzles, questions, key ideas and secrets based on the seri…es, the twilight graphic novel, the movie companions (for twilight, new moon, and eclipse), the twilight parody, nightlight. There is the short second life of Bree Tanner, which was written by Stephanie Meyer and the uncompleted, unpublished draft of Midnight Sun which is readable online on various sites. (MORE)

(MORE)
You can get them on the Internet on different sites or a bookshop. Try Whsmiths or Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk. They got good prices!
I think it's because the other books continue with the twilight story, they are a continuation from edward and Bella's story, so I think it's because of that.
four books are out so far :twilight,new moon,eclipse,breaking dawn. but Stephenie Meyer is writing another book midnight sun. There is also an Eclipse novella called The short second life of Bree Tanner.
Twilight - 2005 New Moon - 2006 Eclipse - 2007 Breaking Dawn - 2008 These are the exact dates because I have the whole series and looked on the copyright pages.
(In order) Twilight New moon Eclipse and Breaking dawn. Breaking dawn is still yet to be released in cinamas.
Just about any book store or online store. walmart sells them kmart, target, and barnes and noble are a few!
The last book in the series is breaking dawn. but if want to know the ending Bella marries edward and they have a child. Jacob imprints on Bella's little girl. All things work out for them in the end. hope that was the answer you wanted!
