Heyyy happy Wednesday! (Ew.) Okay first off, sorry this feels like a messy post…and I haven’t blogged in three weeks; I hate myself. I’m setting a little goal for myself to get back to posting weekly but I was really blanking on something that I ACTUALLY wanted to write about yesterday. While having a nice time watching Twilight: Eclipse. And then it hit me like:
YES TWILIGHT. Plus I loveeee writing discussions. (fyi I don’t watch Glee….this gif just perfectly portrays the moment…) Also if you really hate Twilight with a burning passion, just…RESPECT THE FACT THAT I LIKE IT. Thanks :)) ❤
I EXPECTED to hate it.
And I had no real reason to. I wanted something to watch on a long car ride and I couldn’t think of any good movies to download when Twilight just came to mind because my friend had recently binged all the movies in one weekend. The idea didn’t seem too bad; maybe a little cliche sure, but there’s so much HATE towards Twilight at the same time I expected a eye rolling worthy movie. I kind of loved it and downloaded the New Moon right away…hey keep reading I’m not crazy! I’ve literally grown up hearing that Twilight fans are fake and the story is trash and why would you read that when you could be rereading Harry Potter?! Hardcore hp fans be like:
So what’s with all the controversy over this book anyways? Sure it’s maybe a little over hyped for what it is and other books deserve that type of spotlight (COUGH ACOTAR) but just because a lot of people have read it that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read it. In fact it’s quite the opposite, because if THAT many people love it enough for the book to become THAT famous, you’ll probably like it too. The most awesome book tuber who understands all the feels in her book reviews, made a video on why she likes Twilight and it’s the best thing. (AHAHA CHRISTINE LOOKS SO YOUNG I CAN’T)
Okay but what I don’t get is how some people find it offensive because it’s sexist?? The thing is, Edward is this VAMPIRE, and Jacob is a WEREWOLF, and Bella is a HUMAN. WHAT’S SHE SUPPOSED TO DO? I mean she does DO stuff; Edward isn’t always saving her. For example in New Moon BELLA saved EDWARD from exposing himself to the vampire-hating-people-festival where they would murder him.
I just started the book a few days ago, and I know, that’s pretty bad that I’ve been watching the movies. I expected it to suck so badly though that I thought I wouldn’t want to bother with reading the book, which was a mistake! I bought the first book a while ago, and I want to finish that soon to see how I like it in comparison to the movie. Anyways the moral of today’s story IS…HYPE IS A GOOD THING! (*voice quickly talking in background* even when the majority of people disagree with everything that has to do with a number one New York Times bestseller)
**Despite my sassy meme I swear I’m open to opinions
COMMENT WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT TWILIGHT.
P.S. I’m team Edward, it’s not even open for discussion.
