PollsTeam Edward or Team Jacob?Jennifer Still

I loved the Twilight series. I’m not even gonna lie like I didn’t. I tore through all four books in the period of about a week, absolutely relishing every poorly written, cliche-riddled page. I spent the first three books wondering why Jacob wouldn’t just get lost, daydreaming about being a vampire myself, and being tortured by my perverted brain, which just kept screaming WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO DO IT?! I loved it.

As we all know, all hell broke loose in Breaking Dawn – some would say the series not only jumped the shark with the final installment, but it did somersaults over a dozen great whites, and I would have to agree. It got so ridiculous that the large pool of suspension of disbelief I’d been employing for the first three books was drained dry (kind of like Renesmee did to Bella, LOL). But even still, I ate it up.

The films, of course, have added a whole other layer of fun to the Twilight experience – which has spawned everything from t-shirts and posters to perfume (I may or may not be wearing the official Twilight Immortal perfume right now… gifted, of course!) – and made the series an interactive one for all of the, erm, shall we say excitable fans.

In any case, with the release today of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, it’s time to reflect on Bella’s experience in Forks. Did she end up with the right person (okay, vampire) or should she have gone a different route and given Jacob a chance? Better yet, should she have run the other way upon laying eyes on these two? You decide.

  1. Also, can we have a discussion on how 1. Renesmee is the most ridiculous name EVER (don’t care if it is a combo of the “Mothers’” two names) and 2 Renesmee will undoubtedly be the most popular girls name of 2012.

  2. Let’s face it, if we’re going by the books- Edward is a little obsessed. Jusssst a little, and not to mention a creepy stalker. While Jacob is a kid with a crush and way too immature and WHINY! So neither, honestly.
    But the movies…well really there’s no contest. Do I want the weird face with the big muscles or the awesome face with the average body? I’ll take AWESOME FACE! (I haven’t even seen Breaking Dawn and really have no desire to do so at this point, but eventually I’ll watch it for Rob)

  3. I´m in love with Jacob if she doesn´t want him I´ll have him!!! Edward is so full of himself

  4. The first paragraph defines exactly my twilight experience. I’ll copy-paste it and send it to all my friends and family, they should all know the truth, but only now I’ve found the perfect words! Thank You! :)

  5. I just think the Edward v Jacob battle is silly, because Ms Meyer wrote the book so that Bella picked Edward – the end.

  6. The Volturi need more votes. LOL!

  7. I love Edward. I hate it that Stephenie Meyer had to write Jacob’s character that way. Talk about cliches.

  8. Finally, someone who can relate! I am a smart, independent girl who, despite knowing better, absolutely loved the Twilight books. I’m not a crazed fan or anything, but I have no shame in admitting that I became much more involved with these terribly developed characters than I should have.

  9. I only voted The Volturi because you wrote LOL!

    LOL.

  10. i’ve thought really hard about this and i’ve decided that i could never be a vampire because i love garlic

  12. Perfect review of the series, Jenn! And I for one am “Team Go To College and Get a Job”, but we know that’s because my heart is dead.

  13. I Think Bella Chose Right~Edward~Edward is Kind, Smart, Caring and Loyal Everything that a girl is looking for. They Fit together, their both awkward and weird. I LOVE THE SERIES, I READ All THE BOOK. EDWARD & BELLA 4 ever.

  14. I dunno….I love both boys to bits and pieces, and they both bring out very good qualities in Bella. I ultimately voted Edward because he shows a bit more maturity than Jacob….Jacob’s love shows many bounds because of his excessive inner termoil, but Edward’s love is endless.
