Uh-oh. Looks like author Stephenie Meyer doesn’t like Twilight anymore. 

The author of the books that created a worldwide frenzy amongst teenage girls, young women, moms everywhere and a few dedicated fanboys (you know who you are) has admitted that Twilight is “not a happy place” for her.  

Meyer has said she wants to move on from the series that gave us the sweeping love story between Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), as well as vampires who play baseball, walk in daylight and sparkle in the sun. 

She told Variety during a Q&A: "I get further away [from Twilight] every day. I am so over it. For me, it's not a happy place to be."

Perhaps the $3.3 billion in worldwide receipts (to date) from the five movies her four books spawned is not incentive enough for Meyer to continue with the series that put her on the map.

Still, the door is not completely closed on all things Twilight: “What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-earth.”

The author has another book that also got the Hollywood movie treatment, called The Host. It was released in March but did not make the waves the Twilight films—and books—have.

What do you guys think about Stephenie Meyer’s current feelings about her own creation?
