This year, it seems teens can't get enough of a story about a vampire, a teenage girl and their impossible, yet unfailing, love.

" On Friday, Bella and Edward's story jumps from book to screen as the first film made from the series, "Twilight," is released in theaters.

Now Summit Entertainment brings "Twilight" to life in a romantic movie coming to theaters on Friday, Nov. 21. "Twilight" was to originally premiere on Friday, Dec. 12, but with the film release date of "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" being pushed back from Nov. 21 to July 17, 2009, "Twilight" was moved up.

Since 2008, the "Twilight" movies have been one of my favorite annual traditions.  Not because of the movies themselves, which are drippy romances with endless lovelorn dialogue, but because of the reactions of the audiences that accompany the films. The camera's obsession with the actors' looks is painful. Hundreds of girls' obsession with the actors' looks is hilarious. There is no sound in the world quite like a sold-out auditorium squealing over the sight of Robert Pattinson's face or Taylor Lautner's abs. The storylines and dialogue are downright laughable, but it's such a genuine laughter that it turns out to be a positive reaction.

Anyone who is a member of Team Edward, Team Jacob or Team Jasper is probably eagerly awaiting the release of "New Moon" (especially you, Team Jacob fans), the latest theatrical installment in the "Twilight" series by Stephenie Meyer. While you are waiting, instead of rereading the series for the -nth time, why not explore some other vampire books, both the classics and more modern tales involving the famous fanged creatures. My favorite vampire books are "House of Night" by P.C. and Kristin Cast.
