Twilight and Me: A Love Story

Please don’t laugh at me after you finish reading this.

Stacey, one of my bestest friends in the whole wide world told me I HAD to read Twilight. I knew a little bit about Twilight before reading it but I didn’t know how big the whole thing was. So I started reading it and I couldn’t stop. It was like a drug (not that I’ve tried drugs before but you get the point) I read around 5ish chapters and I was in love. I couldn’t wait to come to work to talk to Stacey about what I had read the night before. You know what’s better than being obsessed with a book? Your friends being obsessed with the same book. Nothing can top that.

My love for Twilight was so big I even considered getting “Edward” tattooed on an undisclosed part of my body! A tattoo you guys! I lost weight because I didn’t want to eat. Twilight consumed most of my life for a few months. I re-read Twilight a bazillion times.

This is my Edward tattoo.
P.S. does not exist 

Right now while writing this I realized that the feelings I was feeling for Twilight are similar to something I have felt before. Love. But not the healthy kind. I felt like I didn’t want to do anything else but to read Twilight. I talked and breathed Twilight. I even got mad when people didn’t like the book. Well, that’s putting it mildly. I saw red when people told me they didn’t like Twilight.

This is an actual conversation between a co-worker and I...
No co-worker was harmed during this conversation.

I like to believe that Twilight felt the same way about me. But I know my relationship with it wasn’t healthy. It was too much, too fast. I decided we had to break up. At least for a couple of months.

I started seeing other books. And I realized they were better put together than Twilight. I haven’t felt that way for another book since Twilight. I believe that’s a good thing. You shouldn’t feel that all consuming love for a thing that doesn’t even breathe. Now I have my favorite books and I don’t think Twilight makes the top ten but, I have to thank it for making me want to read more.

How was your experience with Twilight?? Let me know in the comments.  


  1. Love Love and more love of course being Mormon myself and living in Utah Stephenie Meyer was a HUGE thing she is a mormon author I loved all the books right up until breaking dawn the entire lets eat the baby out of Bella was gross I was in love not with Edward but the idea, in fact before the movies I had a picture in my mind of all the characters and no that didn't happen on screen they casted the wrong people in my book but I still LOVE Twilight and I liked it when the first book hit before all the crazy came out same with Hunger Games but at least Hunger Games got the characters for the movie right. OH WELL I am rambling on here.... I love Twilight but would have to agree doesn't make my top 10 anymore. I still get mad at all the Twilight haters but understand that most those Twilight haters have only seen the movies and never really read the book! TEAM EDWARD!!!! Great post:)

    1. Yes!! Team Edward forever! I agree with you. I think they could have done a little better with the cast. And yes The Hunger Games cast is brilliant except for Peeta he is too short LOL

  2. I was smitten. I wrote fan fictions. I had Mrs. Cullen shirts made, I bought merchandise. You name it, I've done it....except maybe for the tattoo..coz that's just...yeah.

    1. Haha! Mrs. Cullen shirts!? Those sound awesome!!!!
