I’m sorry, but Stephenie Meyer is no where near as good as J K Rowling.

Booksellers say Meyer’s books are helping fill the void left by Harry Potter after the last instalment in the stories the boy wizard was published in 2007.
Publishers had fretted openly about how they would maintain sales after the publication of the final part of the series Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Figures published by the retailer amazon.com show Meyer’s books dominating the top 10 lists for the last year in Britain, the US, Canada and France, enjoying an international success not seen since the height of “Potter-mania”.
In many of the national lists, compiled to chart international reading habits for World Book Day on Thursday her name appears two or three times in the top 10.
The American author has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide of her series Twilight – which was made into a film – New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.
Kes Nielsen, head of books buying at the British arm amazon.co.uk said it was rare for a book to have such appeal in many different countries at the same time.
“Stephenie Meyer, in particular, has achieved incredible success across all the English-speaking nations and Europe and many will say that her Twilight series has filled the hole left by Harry Potter.
“Indeed, I don’t think we have seen one author have so many books in the best-sellers lists since J K Rowling in the early days of the boy wizard.”
