New pet peeve.

It's not really new. Just newfound. And it's also a really really stupid thing to be annoyed by.

but. I hate when people go off about how much they hate twilight/edward/bella/jacob, what have you, when they have not even read the books!

let's get real, here. We all know you just don't like it solely because of how mainstream and popular it is. I, myself, often am afraid of admitting it simply because I don't want to become stereotyped as one of those people. But if I like something, I'm going to like it. Very few people are aware of my love for twilight and my obsession with Edward. Well, I guess it's not so much a secret anymore. It's not something I prefer to shout across the rooftops like some illiterate 10 year old girl who has memorized the movie script. However, I don't mind having a love for something that is clearly and incredibly romantic novel.

Now, I understand if you have read the actual book and decided that it was just not your cup of tea writing style or story, but at least give it a chance before you shoot it down and protest it.

Just for the record, just because I love the book, does not mean I love the movie. The movie is definitely entertaining, but it no where near captures the passion or intensity that the book expresses. I also happen to be a very easily entertained individual and a movie like "Snow Buddies" can hold my interest for an extended period of time.

Anyways, that's my rant for today. Hope everyone's having a good one. :)

I totally agree about people hating Twilight just because it's mainstream. That's really snobby. I read all the books, and while they're not my favorite books ever written, they definitely have their merits. I've even written a novel—which will never leave my hard drive—in response to the books. Good for you for standing up for Twilight!
