As a FORMER TwiHard it almost pains me to even tell what I'm about to tell you. But then I remember I just used the word “TwiHard” and how disgusting the word “TwiHard” actually is, and my pain seems to evade me.
Long ago I read all four Twilight books. They were a good, fun, easy read. But then they became ultra, super popular with the movies and the posters and the music and, quite frankly, I started getting sick of hearing about Twilight ALL. THE. TIME. I disliked hearing women confess their undying love to Edward Cullen, a fictional character. I mean, it’s one thing to love you a little Mr. Darcy or Mr. Bingley, but Edward Cullen and Jacob Black? Yuck. Then people started naming their children Edward and Bella and Jacob and that’s when I just about started giving myself swirlies in the toilet. I mean absolutely no offense to Ms. Meyers, for she is surely a lovely woman. It’s the hype and the craziness that surrounds the empire that I don't like.
So, to stick it to my old self, I am selling all four books at our Scout yard sale. Hopefully they will fund someone’s camp expense and hopefully no one will name their child Edward as a direct result.
