stephenie meyer  stephenie meyer breaking dawn galaxy award Breaking Dawn Wins Galaxy Book Award

Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn won the “Oscars of the book world” Galaxy Award for Best Children’s Book. The award was announced Friday night, and Breaking Dawn beat out J.K. Rowling’s The Tales of Beedle the Bard to reach the #1 spot. Congrats, Queen Bee! Check out the rest of the winners at the British Book Awards website. [thanks, Heather and Emma!]

    I am glad that Stephenie got some kind of recoognition for this AWESOME piece of writing but there is no way this book could ever be considered a children's book. Now that I think of it NONE of the books in the Twilight Saga should be listed under the childrens book category. Having these books listed as a children's books gives parents a greenlight that these books are acceptable for all ages and for those of us who have read them and know the content involved understand that thats just not the case. PARENTS BEWARE

    the entire saga is r-rated all of those hot scenes, hot kisses btw Bella/Edward, specially Breaking Dawn. I would love to watch the movie, i would be interesting if they do it in 2 movies, more time with the saga.

    I loved Breaking Dawn, too. Especially Jacob's point of view! The book was just awesome.
    By children's book it means, non-adult books and young adult books.
    Though I agree that BD should probably be rated R if it ever hits theaters, I think they'll stick to the PG-13 rating. I'm not trying to start anything, so don't yell at me for “comments”, but isn't Stephenie Meyer a Mormon? Don't they (Mormons) usually avoid movies rated R? I'm just wondering, because I've heard that, and if it was true, then she couldn't go see a movie that went against her beliefs, even if it was her own book-turned-into-movie.

    Oh Galaxy, I thought more of you….
    The Twilight series isn't a 'saga' so much as a cashcow trainwreck piece of illiterate rubbish. Add to this that loads of fans of the series panned Breaking Dawn as the insane doorstop it is (OMG it's totally NOT gross that Jacob falls in love with the baby with the stupid name because she's totally going to grow up like, RLY FAST) then we come out with a worthy award winner…. how, exactly?
