The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide Hits Number 1 on Wall Street Journal List

We already told you about the Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide hitting the USA Today bestseller list in the number four position. USA Today, is the only list that we know of that puts every single book in the same list from cookbooks to novels. The Wall Street Journal, on the other hand, subdivides its list. They have five categories: Hardcover Fiction, Hardcover Non-Fiction, Hardcover Business, Hardcover Sports and Recreation, and Spotlight on House and Home. Given their categories they have placed the Guide in the Hardcover non-fiction section, which we confess does seem a little odd. We’re assuming that any type of guide ends up there. The Official Illustrated Guide has debuted in their number one position.

  1. Congrats Stephenie ! It was awesome.

  2. Ha, ha! I’ve been telling my family that sparkly vampires are real!!

  3. I was very disappointed in Alice’s back story. It has a serious flaw. Electroshock therapy wasn’t used until the 1930s. Alice was changed in 1920 and supposedly her lack of memories came from the shock therapies. Bad research on SM’s part.

    The interview at the beginning with Shannon Hale was the best part of the book. The rest…eh.

      I am with you on that one. There was not that much in the guide that i did not know. There are still more questions than answers. But what can you do? I feel like it was a waste of my money.
