I'm 52, obsessed by reading, an author of four novels and I work in a bookstore.
All of this did not prepare me for the inpact the Twilight Saga had on my life. It is not easy to understand but I am totaly obsessed by the four "young adult" books. I think it is because you actually are Bella when you read it. Everything she feels, experiences or sees is decribed in simple words, nothing too fancy. Ideal to really let you dream away. Like in Harry Potter some "terrible" things happen but here the romance is primary to the story. Much like in the classics Ms Meyer and myself enjoy. Meyer is no Jane Austen, granted, but what author has had 4 books in the top 5 for weeks? What author could write the same book twice (Midnight Sun)and be sure it was a bestseller? I do hope she continues with that story. The books are not literary masterpieces but an experience and I would (and do) recommend them to teenagers of all ages.
