What's Twilight?

I was on the train this morning flipping through Entertainment Weekly and I came across an article about the Twilight vampire series written by Stephanie Meyer. The article declared her a smash hit and overnight sensation, rivaling J.K. Rowling in popularity (whose books I also don't read). Based on the description - a 17 year old girl falling in love with a "mysterious, black-clad hunk of a night thing" (as Spike would say) bloodsucker - and the journalists own comparison of the books to Buffy, I wondered why I hadn't heard any news about this floating around fandom. Has anyone read these things? Admittedly, it's something I would stay away from with a ten foot pole. Romance novel-esque damsels in distress that swoon over their preternatural objects of affection? Nah, I'll just write myself some dirty fic instead. But still, my curiosity is piqued.
