Heirs of Twilight: terrible teen books

A discussion question: Will there be another Twilight in the future?  That is, a franchise this horrible will produce spinoffs?

We've already got some terrible stuff already in the past few years;

The Host-book and film bombed
City of Bones-Again, bombed
Beautiful creatures-again bombed

On the other hand, they were more direct spinoffs of Twilight or had Twilight's influence (the Host was by Meyer herself, and City of Bones was by a fan of hers)

The biggest Young Adult thing now is the Hunger Games, which, while I consider it a complete bore and quite terrible in its own right, doesn't have quite the impact or the sheer awfulness of Twilight

My question is, while that the Twilight series has been successful despite being hated by everyone with a brain, can this happen again? I know terrible books have had big followings like Gone With the Wind or Wuthering Heights and such, but I wouldn't call it the same phenomenon.

I guess what I'm asking is whether Twilight is just another a bad franchise and part of a larger cultural pattern (which would predict that this will continue to happen while the cultural paradigm exists), or if it was something especially unique, and if the latter is true,  can it happen again?

Introducing...

Hi everyone :)

I actually joined some time ago but forgot to... do... anything.

I'm so sorry >:

So basically I'm an anime fan more than anything else. Also like video games, especially JRPG's, and I write as a hobby. Once I find the appropriate place for it here I'll advertise my anti-twific that I began for NaNo last year :)

So I read Twilight thanks to my stepbrother who pitched it as sometime much greater than it was. It's also my fault, to be fair: I didn't realize it was garbage until New Moon and The Goddamn Hole (tm). Then I kept reading because I don't believe in hating something without actually understanding it. So yeah, that's about it for now, later :D
