Now, with the American release of new Moon (lucky bitches) I’ve been thinking, and I know Mrs P. over at A Study In Contradictions agrees- Twilight is an absolutely awesome love story, with a great plot. However, it is also an a total drudgery to read.
Don’t get me wrong me. I’m no Twi-hater. I’m a Twerd. A Twork. A Twi-hard. I love the stuff. But, I must confess… I’ve only read the books once. **Ducks from onslaught of over priced merchandise being thrown at her by scary teenage girls**.
Again, a disclaimer. I appreciate all the wonderful things Twilight has done for the world. Team Edward. Robert Pattinson, with his weird eyebrows. Team Jacob. Shirts that say “I kissed a vampire and I liked it”. Robert Pattinson, with his weird hair. Amusing FaceBook groups with titles like “You’re not a vampire, you’re a sparkly douche bag in a tree” and “In my day, vampires sucked blood, not cock”.
But I just cannot bring myself to read the books again. As much as I might like to. It’s just too painful. The story is brilliant. The writing is anything but. Case in point- from the Preface of Breaking Dawn.
If it was someone you truly loved?
Disclaimer- Yep, totally aware of pot-kettle-black with clunky writing, Ishould be so lucky as to write four best sellers, so on and so forth, and that i should have written this, like, years ago. Bite me.
