This was quite interesting. Article Posing the question why Twilight is so popular and if it will stand the time in the long run. Suggesting common themes such as forbidden love and beauty and the beast being an appeal to fans young and old.

Stephenie had a loose inspiration for each of her books from classic literature.

Twilight: Pride and Prejudice
New Moon: Romeo and Juliet
Eclipse: Wuthering Heights
Breaking Dawn: The Merchant of Venice and A Midsummers Night Dream

Sales for Wuthering Heights are up to record highs in France, and booksellers are attributing the success to Stephenie Meyer.
