In Defense of Twilight

Okay... I know that Twilight is not quality literature like, say, Jane Eyre or Pride and Prejudice, but it isn't as awful as those trashy romances with the guy ripping the girl's clothes off on the cover. You know those paperbacks you can buy at used bookstores for $0.50? The ones that are basically softcare pornography?


Those are crap literature. Jane Austen and Shakespeare are quality literature. So where does Twilight fall?

This is my literature graph thing.

Crap Romance novels < Twilight < The Hunger Games < Harry Potter = Pride and Prejudice / Jane Eyre

Now, some people may disagree with me with the Hunger Games being below Harry Potter which I consider to be equalish to Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice.

I don't care. This is my blog. So MEH.

I don't find Twilight to be horrible, or immoral or anything truly evil. As you can see, it's definitely no Pride and Prejudice, but it's not the worst thing you can read. I'd much rather see teenagers reading Twilight than crap romance novel.

And no, it doesn't teach the same wondrous lessons as the bible or a saint's biography may, but in all honesty, it does teach chastity as a good thing and Bella is pro-life.

And yes I did see Breaking Dawn at midnight last night. And yes, it was FANTASTIC!
