Twilight Grandmother

June 7th, 2008 at 1:08 am by Kaleb Nation

I got this email and had to post it:

Ok, so I know that this is mainly a young adult book but let’s hear it for not only for Twilight MOMs, but I think there needs to be a new category for Twilight GRANDMOTHERS!!!!!

I’m 51 years young and have 5 beautiful grandbabies and I, along with my three daughters, LOVE Twilight! So widen out your range of fans just a little and leave room for us over 50′s!! This just proves that you’re never too old for a little romance!

Oh, by the way, I just told my mom about these books too, and so there might even be a need for Twilight GREATGRANDMOTHERS!


Love Ya!

    She’s not the only one, I got my grandmother into Twilight as well. Now we e-mail each other back and forth debating and discussing the series.

  2. Samantha

    How neat is that! They’ve got three generations worth of Twilighters, maybe even four! That’s insane.

  3. Icy Topaz

    My Gramma read it and adored it. I let my other Gramma borrow it, but she’s not so into reading. I dunno. But Twilight is a book for anyone, so I don’t know why there aren’t more fanclubs out there consisting of people other than teenage girls. Books are not directed toward one group; they’re for every body.

  4. Autumn

    holy crap. i wish more of my family was into reading. starting today im going to try and get as many members of my family that i can to read twilight.

  5. Becca

    My grandma also read Twilight, though I don’t think she read New Moon and Eclipse, but that’s beside the point. I believe that she was the first in my extended family to read the book which she had got from her neice and then went on to pass it around the family and get us all hooked.

  6. Lara

    thats awesome!
    Im sooooo getting my grandmother into it..
    and the rest of my family..
    GO GRANDMA! =D

  7. Minh-Thu

    Go Twilight MOMS, GRANDMOMS and GREATGRANDMOMS!!!

    I’m the only one in my family who is into reading -.-

  8. Lauren

    I think its awesome that odler people are reading the books too! They’re great books and just becuase they say Young Adult doesnt mean only young adults have to read them!
    GO TWILIGHT MOMS, GRANDMOMS, AND GREAT GRANDMOMS!!!AND MAYBE EVEN GREAT GREAT GRANDMOMS!!haha, oh and of course Twilight Guys too!

  9. Cara C.

  10. hazel

  11. Kevin Garduno [dominguez53@msn.com]

  12. Kevin Garduno [dominguez53@msn.com]

    i read it and my sister reads too

  13. Emmy-lou

    wow. kinda reminds me of the first chapter of new moon…..

  14. Filipa

    cutest
    thing
    EVER

    even guys reading Twilight aren’t THIS cute!!!

    I DEMAND A TWILIGHTGRANNY’S FANSITE!!! NOW!!!

  15. Zebra Flowers

    I got my grandma to read it, and so far, she is the only person I’ve ever seen to give it a semi-lukewarm response, saying that, “with the exception of one scene,” it was a good book for young girls. I’ve no idea what scene she was talking about, though -.-;

  16. Deja

    Ha Ha..my Grandma starts them right after I read them for the 7th time..even though I’m stressing because they’re going to be away from me for awhile..:( but yeah Go all TWILIGHT FANS!! Woot! Woot!

  17. Ash is DA Bomb!

    YaY! I’m trying to get my grandmother to read twilight too! Cause every day I talk about twilight (mainly Edward Cullen lol!) she says this to me every day “Why do you love this Edward Cullen guy? He’s a vampire! for crying out loud” I reply to her “Read the book” she just rolls her eyes. It’s my final act to get her to read Twilight YAY TWILIGHT GRANDMOTHERS!!

  18. Venice

    Oh wow. That’s awesome.
    I’d so have my mother and grandmother read the Twilight series but they’re not so great with English. I could try…

  19. Jan

    aw that was really sweet.

  20. Rachul

    I’m more amused at the fact that you are sending her a t-shirt. I think I’d crack up if I saw a 90 year old wearing a Twilight Tee. XD

  21. Marye~

    I’m glad to hear that you love Twilight too! I wonder if my 73 year old mother would like it too.

  22. Molly

    Haha. I just made my brother read it, and hes all “I dont like it, its dumb!”, but i also saw him steal my New Moon and Eclipse..

  23. Someone

    You know you’ve got a good book, and series, on your hands when people of all ages can pick it up and enjoy it. Good job to Stephanie Meyer, and kudos to all you 50+ twilighters out there. That’s really cool ;p

  24. Jojo

    The depressing thing is that my Grandma doesn’t read…and she’d refuse to read anything on vampires. Then again, guess what? I flipped when I found out she was born in Chicago in 1918…

  25. Morgan A.

    Thats so cool! I might ask my grandmother to read twilight, but my own mom would never of heard of the series if it weren’t for me, and she even hasn’t read them yet, even though I’ve tried to force her to.
    My grandma might like it, she likes romances, but the books she reads are more like adult romances so we’ll see. But then again, she might forget Lol

  26. anne

    that’s so awesome <3 i don’t know if my gramma would like the series buuuut i think it would be interesting to send her a few books and find out :)

    thanks for the idea, random grandmother lady! you’re awesome! :)

  27. inmortal

    :/ boo my two grannys are dead so there’s no way I can make them read Twilight….lol It counts if I read Twilight on their graves?
    Sniffff.

  28. Emma

    Utterly brilliant. :P

  29. Joanne Maria

    I am not a grandma…but I am 50+…there are a few of us at TWILIGHT MOM’S…I am glad there are more out there.

  30. Brie

    That’s so awesome!

  31. Katie ~

    ha me too my grandmothers would have to read it in their graves. good luck with that one!

  32. Hope

    Haha, that’s so cool!

  33. Kate

    haha, that’s great! they should totally start a “Twilight GRANDmoms” site :P

  34. Kelsi

    That’s amazing! I’m having a hard time just getting my mom to read it!

  35. bookgirlluvstwilight

    I’m not surprized. Twilight is so good people of all ages read it. Still its good to have reasurance. I’m only eleven and I LOVE Twilight! :)

    Stevie was here

  36. Katie Beth

    Awesome! I could a couple of my grandmothers (I have three) reading Twilight. In fact, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if one of them or my aunts started talking about it on vacation this year. They follow the hot books pretty heavily.

  37. bookgirlluvstwilight

    My Grandmother hasn’t read Twilight, in fact I don’t think she has even ever heardof it. I guss that not a surprize because the live in Minasota and away from other life, not internet, an antient TV, and an antient phone. My aunt has read it though! :) She was the one who gave it to me for Christmas! I will forever be in debut to her for introducing me to Twilight! Twilight Aunt :)

    Stevie was here, again

  38. Marie

    OMG! Haha, I got my grandmother to read it too! Although she is a Jacob fan.. :-p

  39. April

    Thats so cute!!! Thats all i have to say in fact. One of the shortest comments i’ve ever written here!

  40. Helen

    My 70 year old aunt (who is a grandmother and great-grandmother) introduced me to the Twilight series (and I’m eternally grateful).

  41. mckenzie

    I can’t even get my mom to read them let alone my grandmother.

  42. mckenzie

    I positively LOVE them though

  43. nita

    I am a grandmother of one and i have four children and most say a very crazy person well i would love to have some older friends ,i adore twilight and i have shirts and other stuff ,i would like to gain some friends that like the things i do ,fact is i am writing my own book ,i do write have all my life but just for friends and family but stephine has inspired me .anyway i will tell you why twilight touched my heart ,i never was given the chance to have that struck feeling of what my first love should of been
    it was taken from me by abuse oh sure i had that DONNIE OSMOND PICTURE HUNG ON MY CLOSET DOOR AND DREAMED OF GREATER THINGS BUT in truth my life was forever changed by the course of what my addopted father did to me at a very young age untill i was about sixteen or so ,and it is what i live with everyday
    but to feel the simple pull between edward and bela is awesome

  44. Char

    Hey – my Grandson told me about the books. He knows I like vamps. I read them before I watched the Movie and I’m hooked. WHen I watch them or read the books, I’m no longer a Grandma. Can’t get enough. And the sound track and score are awesome. So — you go all you Twilight Grandmas. ANd, I don’t care what Stephen King says – Stephanie can just keep them coming.

  45. donnabrenneis

    I am just going to reply to the first blog about the Twilight series. I subscribed to the comments via e-mail. I wish there was a discussion about the depth of Stephanie Meyers' saga. I am a 67-year old grandmother who has read the saga twice, and have now seen both movies. I have never been a fan of vampires, but my granddaughter and daughter were so into the saga that they could not tear themselves away from the books. They too have read the saga, at least, twice. I was hooked with the first reading of Twilight. After I read the 4 books, I went back and re-read them, highlighting all the themes, insights, ideas, answers to human questions that Stephanie seems to know and raise etc. I knew other grandmas had to be reading the saga. I am so glad to see this blog.

    I just found this site…guess I've been a bit reluctant to admit my obsession with Twilight Saga. I have rooted out all of Rob Pattinson's movies, same with Kristen and Taylor's. I can't get enough and cannot wait for Breaking Dawn's release. I need to hook up with other grandmothers and/or mothers who want to talk about various topics all Twilight related.

    For instance: In the final scene sequence in Twilight where Edward and Bella are dancing and Bella starts to insist that Edward change her right then and there…I watch Edward's face contort as he fights with his desire for her blood, then leans over and gently kisses her neck. His next lines are equally as compelling as is his facial expression, “Aren't you satisfied to just spend the rest of your life with me?”

    I keep replaying this scene because I find the expression Rob was able to emote and which was caught on the film and it convinced me that he, of all the others has a huge career as an actor in his future. He's amazing. I just need to talk to others about it. My DIL turned me onto the series, but with two young children she doesn't have the time to talk about it.

    Help me?

    Hi…I can tell you why I am hooked on Twilight Saga. It's easy. There is no swearing, no sex…and after watching Rob Pattinson talk about the “wedding night” scene in Breaking Dawn I believe that even that will be done tastefully without bare bottoms or exposed breasts. It took me a while to realize this, but I was trying to sell an acquaintance on the series after hearing the usual, I'm not interested in Werewolves and Vampires…So I clarified her that there were no real werewolves, instead there were Shapeshifters…a totally different breed…then I asked if she like Romeo and Juliet stories…yes…so I said, here, this is my copy of Twilight…read it…tell me what you think and you have to promise me that you'll read at least to page 100. I can't wait to see her again…to find out if she has read it yet.

  53. Roansmom2010

    Me, again. I am also a 67 y/o grandmother with 5 grandchildren who range in age from 23-8.
