Twilight = Trash

Has the world gone absolutely insane? Everyone's crazy about Twilight. A close friend of mine even wrote about how it "doesn't have cliches" and she was so sure that I would adore Edward Cullen. No offense to her, but Twilight (book and movie) is trash. Utter trash. My sister was curious about the whole Twilight craze, so she borrowed her friend's book. When she was done, she told me, "Ciaee!! OMG THE BOOK IS SOOOO BAD IT'S GOOD."

I'm not even gonna try and write a review on the story because it'll probably come out sounding quite hateful, and it's not exactly the author's fault that people are crazy over her work. But here are two funny reviews I found. I cracked up so many times.

I want to beat Edward Cullen with a stick.

This is why I stay away from romance books.

If Twilight was written 100 years ago, I can understand. Because back then, a story like this might've been breaking new grounds. But today, hasn't a teenage-drama-vampire-love-story like this one been a million times over? And her writing style is really nothing impressive.

I'm definitely getting the DVD of the movie. I can't wait to watch it together with my sis when she comes back from the US. It's going to be soooo. much. fun. 8D

I've been wanting to get that out of my system for a while.


  1. I would like Twilight if they replaced Edward with Jessica Alba.Yummmm

  2. That'll be... too weird. O_O

    *imagines Jessica Alba saying all those corny lines*

    O_O Too weird.

  3. Y'know, I don't even know where the heck all this Twilight craze came from. It just kinda hit me like a surprise hurricane. And then it made me sick. I wanna bop everybody who likes Twilight on the head...

  4. I know! It's all over the freaking place - on MSN nicknames, LJ icons, blogs, posters and omg I'm not visiting the bookstores until this madness is over.

  5. I love the south park episode sort of about this. hahaha. XD

    I loved those reviews too! They cracked me up per se.

  6. Yes... it's in the latest season. Called "Ungroundable" XD hahahahhah... *ahhh*

  7. YES.All of the girls in my school love/like it.Except my close friends who are nonchalant about it since they haven't read it.It's unbelievably creepy.How does a sparkly stalker that feels like marble seem quote: 'ultra hawt and sexah!' to them? Granted,some fans don't take the books seriously just read them as light entertainment,but I still don't get the appeal.First read it last year when I was 15,didn't like it,tried (failingly) to read it again at some point this year and still didn't.In fact,it baffled me more.If this is how a regular teenage girl percieves love,I'm scared as hell how their current/future boyfriends would react.

  8. I KNOW. I find it horrifying whenever people I would consider intelligent tell me things like, Edward is the perfect man of their dreams, or that Twilight is the best book ever written.
