The topic this week: Jacob vs. Edward (from Twilight, haha!)
I think I'm over my whole Twilight phase, lol. I'll probably see the last movie sometime when it comes out just to finish out the series since I've seen the other movies. I'm not counting down the days or anything. :D
In Twilight, I loved Edward and didn't feel like Jacob was in the book enough for me to feel strongly one way or the other about him. I liked his character, but I didn't think of him as a potential love interest for Bella.
Then in New Moon, I was so angry with Edward abandoning Bella and freaked out at the same time with the way Bella basically lost the will to live over a guy (ok, vampire, whatev :D ). Jacob was such a good friend to her during those rough times, and he seemed so mature. He was falling for her, but he wasn't pushy about it.
During Eclipse, I found myself completely split down the middle. I could not for the life of me decide if I was Team Edward or Team Jacob. I was content to just let her be indecisive about a relationship. She had plenty of other things to worry about, lol.
Finally when I was reading Breaking Dawn, Jacob became so immature and whiny. Edward was too possessive. I didn't really like either one of them, but if I had to choose, I'd go with Edward in that book. I think the fact that the book was so poorly written in my opinion had a lot to do with my lack of interest in either one of them. I had a really difficult time getting through that book.
When it comes down to it, I'd say I prefer Edward overall. The idea of a perfect romance that Edward and Bella could have sold me even though that's completely unrealistic. Once Bella became a vampire, they both will live the same lifestyle, are so rich they'll never have to worry about money (wouldn't that be nice!), have all the time in the world to do whatever they want...I could go on, lol.
I do have to say this, though. Edward can't hold a CANDLE to Angel!!! (Been having Buffy marathons on Netflix) <3
I'm also a little over my Twilight phase... Breaking Dawn kind of killed it for me, but I'd say book-wise, Edward would be my pick too.ReplyDelete
Here’s my weigh in
Hey, I'm so sorry for taking so long to comment back--this is completely out of character for me. I usually respond the same day. If you read my latest post, you'll find out about my crazy yet awesome week. :)Delete
I totally agree with you--I think Breaking Dawn did it for me. I still love the first book, and even a lot of the first movie. But Breaking Dawn was just too much.
If we are going off the topic of Twilight, I'd take the best of both worlds with the half Lycan/Vampire of Michael from Underworld! But Angel still holds a special place in my heart!ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry for taking too long to respond. I normally respond the same day. Hopefully after reading my blog post I just put up, you will see what I've been up to. :)Delete
I agree with you, too! He's totally hottt, yes with three t's! I see the sizzle between Buffy and Angel, which has been a different experience now that I'm watching them after seeing and reading the Twilight series. Angel is just...wow! ;)
