I don't appreicate it when you give this seiries a bad rap. It is a well written (how ever cliched) and well rounded (if only bizarre) book

Okay, so Twilight may not be the best book on the planet. Doubtless I have read better. And I can say that with a clear contcious.

I am a Twilight Addict.

I've said it and I'm proud of it.

Twilight is a very clichéd book, I'll admit. But it gives us teenagers a kind of hope. In our little unimportant lives, we can always see that SOMETHING reminds us of twilight. I have only read the books oh.... 3 times each...

You could say that I have a mental problem, and need to see a therapist.

Well, my mom's a therapist and she says that I am in perfect mental health.

Bella and Edwards relationship is the kind of irrevocable love that we all search for. I think this book kind of shows us that it can come up in the most unlikely of places. If I hadn't been obsessed with Twilight, I would still be sitting on my butt, in my room, reading  who know what? Eragon (now THERE is a peice of bad writing, if only for the utter lack of good hard structure.) I hope that to all you people who think that the relationship is unhealthy to look again.

Some major things have happend to Bella to support this:

She is in mortal danger every day.

She is the very essence of fraility here and she is surrounded by blood sucking 'monsters'

She is being controlled by Edward.

Now I can see where you get this idea. But you must remember that in the begining Edward gave Bella a choice. She chose danger.

The controlling bit is a mite harder. While Edward usually gets his way, Bella will almost ALWAYS get her way. Edward is a bit overprotective (if you haven't noticed then maybe you  shouldn't be reading this should you)

To all you mothers out there: There will be other books. This isn't nearly as bad as Harry Potter even though it mainly is focused on one age group.

To all you Twi-Hards: Live life to the fullest, and read other books. You have all summer to read and grow a love for other books and when this is all over, there will beother books.

To the people who think they will become vampires: I have no advice for you exept find the 'human' in you and try to get rid of THIS kind of addiction. This is the unhealthy kind. This is when you should seek help....that doesn't mead you can dream though...
