Fail, Hillary and Lauren don’t seem to have read any of the books they are trashing, including the FOUR + novella + encyclopedia books from the Twilight Saga. Twilight, for example, is an elaborate metaphor of how to find/secure heaven-on-earth, through four stages of learn, belief, change, and commit, which happens to parallel LDS’ people’s “first four principles of the gospel,” which are regarded as the basic principles to create a heavenly life on Earth (which is a good way to show that you want to go to heaven). When books like Twilight have sold over 125 million copies, they are more than a guilty pleasure, and those who claim they are, in my experience, either haven’t read them (asw in this case) or they are poor readers. Popular books scratch some thematic itch (usually spiritual) that many people have at the time in a constantly evolving and increasingly secular culture, with a compelling milieu often hidden within a relatively easy-to-read story. That milieu is usually a metaphor for modern/better living; in trash-the-book lists like this, they rarely (if ever) notice that, and thus, miss the point.
