Twilight

Released October 5, 2005, Stephenie Meyer’s breakout book reached a level of fame and following near that of Harry Potter. Twilight, a dark romance novel, developed into a four-part book saga with five movies and one crazed cult of fans. The “Team Edward or Team Jacob?” question can still spark a heated debate over a decade later. Meyers thought up, wrote, and published Twilight in a matter of six months and simultaneously launched her career to unthinkable heights. In 2010, Forbes ranked her at 59th on their Celebrity 100—an annual list of the world’s highest-paid celebrities—with $40 million in earnings (this year, the 59th spot was shared by Garth Brooks, Jackie Chan and The Chainsmokers). Which is better: the book or the movie?
