Nightlight by The Harvard Lampoon
Belle Goose is a new student in rainy Switchblade, but it's not long before she discovers the mysterious Edwart Mullen. Convinced he is a vampire and her soul mate, Belle finds herself in the middle of a creepy campaign to convince Edwart that they should be together.
This book is for people who either really love or really hate Twilight. I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would, or as much as I wanted to. There's so much in Twilight that is perfect for spoof or satire, but for me, a lot of this just missed the mark. There were times when it was riffing on what it would be like for a real vampire to be your boyfriend, and those parts were particularly strong. The rest of it kind of dragged - and when I think of reading the first Twilight book, I particularly remember how I flew through the pages.
