If you’ve never read the Twilight books, you could be missing out, depending on your interests! Twilight became a phenomenon when it was penned by Stephenie Meyer and changed the way vampires are portrayed in popular culture. But, did you know that the idea came from a dream Meyer had?

Apparently, the author fell asleep one night and dreamt of a human girl sitting in a meadow with a vampire, and not being afraid. This was the dream that gave birth to the central relationship in Twilight. Meyer wrote the first novel over an eight week period and managed to find a publisher to accept it. The rest, as they say, is literary history.
