QUESTION
is it just me or is Twilight getting a tad bit old?
is the whole Twilight thing kinda getting old?

i mean dont get me wrong.
back a year ago in March i read all the books in one weekend
and fell in love.

but ever since this whole TWILIGHT TWILIGHT, thing doesnt i kinda wanna make you barf?

on here thats all you see book questions about.
walmart had a huge display of it.

and celeb mags are full of the junk

ANSWER
Well, it is a book that glorifies sexism, pedophilia and child grooming, domestic abuse, abusive relationships, necrophilia and lust as true love. Not to mention the awful writing with thesaurus rape and purple prose AND the mary-sueness

I have read them. Get over it.
It is technically necorphilia
the Jacob/Renesmee thing is child grooming
and Edward’s relationship with Bella is an abusive, overcontrolling and domineering relationship with no other base other than “Edward’s hot.” It’s obvious since that’s 2/3 of the book “OMG EDWARD’S HOT I CREAMED MY PANTS”
Even Pattinson agrees with me
“”…when I read [Twilight], it seemed like I was convinced [author] Stephenie [Meyers] was convinced she was [the book’s lead character] Bella and it was like it was a book that wasn’t supposed to be published. It was like reading her sexual fantasy, especially when she said it was based on a dream and it was like, ‘Oh I’ve had this dream about this really sexy guy,’ and she just writes this book about it. Some things about [Pattinson’s character] Edward are so specific, I was just convinced – I was like, ‘This woman is mad. She’s completely mad and she’s in love with her own fictional creation.'”

: “When you read the book,” says Pattinson, looking appropriately pallid and interesting even without makeup, “it’s like, ‘Edward Cullen was so beautiful I creamed myself.’ I mean every line is like that. He’s the most ridiculous person who’s so amazing at everything. I think a lot of actors tried to play that aspect. I just couldn’t to that. And the more I read the script, the more I hated this guy, so that’s how I played him, as a manic-depressive who hates himself. Plus he’s an 108 year old virgin so he’s obviously got some issues there.”

Also, here’s a long thread and essay clearing up why Edward is abusive, among other reasons why Twilight glorifies unhealthy relationships:

Honestly, it should not have been famous to begin with, much less among preteens and teens.

Also, it’s a fad – of course it will get old.
