This week, I read all three books in the Twilight Collection by Stephanie Meyer. So many people I know have read, and fallen in love with these books. Knowing that my surgery and long recovery was coming up, I had Dave buy me the series for Christmas. Several days after getting home from the hospital, I dove in, anxious to see what all the hype was about.
I did not love them. Am I crazy? Am I completely a non-romantic? I know this is young adult fiction, but so many sane adult women I know have read these books and loved them. Not me. I found the main character, Bella, to be so whiney; "Please, turn me into a vampire...wah!" Come on! It was so annoying to me. And Edward, her vampire boyfriend....he is a total stalker! Never leaving her alone, sneaking into her room every night so she could sleep in his cold, granite arms. BLAH! And...he's a total pedophile. So what if he looks like he's seventeen. He's something like 100 years old! It's sick and wrong!
I went ahead and read all three books, but they just never seemed to get better for me. They were pages of blah and whining, followed by small sections of drama.
Ok all of you....let's discuss. Why do you love these books?
