Breaking Dawn What's Up With the Title?

By Stephenie Meyer

What's Up With the Title?

According to Stephenie Meyer, the title Breaking Dawn is a reference to the beginning of Bella's vampire life, the dawn of her new existence (source). Though we won't get to hear more of Bella's story after Breaking Dawn – the final book in the series – "dawn" as a time of day also seems to suggest that her future with Edward has just begun and looks bright.
