The Selection: The series

I started reading this series a few days ago. Boy oh boy, such a drama-filled romance series. Of course, there is a love triangle. This is between Aspen (America’s first love) and Maxon (the prince). The story is told from the perspective of the main character America. I would tell you more , but am too afraid that I’ll spoil you by accident. Read the book, come back, tell me your experience, praise with me, and rant with me. I know that sounds like a lot, but I can’t wait to share my opinions with you guys, as well as hear you guys’ too!

And as just a little something extra (for the last book The One) I chose a song: I Choose You by Sara Bareilles

Take care!

I chose to write from the point of views that I did because Ms. Meyers hadn’t already written about them so I could use my own style of writing. Leave me a review, telling me what I did well AS WELL AS constructive criticism/ what I can improve on. I hope you enjoy!

Perfect Twilight song

Daylight by Maroon 5

This song captures how Edward must have felt they day before he decided to leave Bella and move. It is heart wrenching because it brings back so many memories from the series, both good and bad. Thumbs up if you wish the series went on forever and never got boring (it wouldn’t ever get boring watching Bella and Edward *swoon*).

Here is the link if you want to enjoy this song.

Twilight Series: Review

I thought Twilight was okay. This book isn’t as frivolous as many people think it is. But it’s definitely (maybe a little over) dramatic and such a romance novel. Not to mention, Bella seems very weak and is in constant need of a strong male character to “save” her. Now that I think about it, in Twilight, there aren’t any strong female characters in general, the best I can come up with is Alice (she’s my favorite). But, this conversation is for further down. So, let’s get started with the blurb of the book.

Bella Swan the new girl in town, is clumsy as ever, but when she gets to school she catches the eye of Edward Cullen (uh, he’s a hottie, in a model like way) but not in a good way. Every time he sees her he looks mad with chagrin, but why? He’s never even talked to her! Read as you uncover Edward Cullen’s mysterious past as well as future. Watch as they fight for love against all odds. Be surprised as the truth bites!

Honestly, I can understand both sides of the argument. The people who are for Twilight see it as true love and a strong connection between two people who were destined to be together. Some people want that. They want to be destined to a lover who was specifically carved for them. They don’t see Edward as a 109-year-old man who stalks women in the dead of night. They see him as an 18-year-old who is protecting his one and only true love from anything that might harm her. And I think both ways are correct.

At one point, I was like them, I loved Twilight too. But, as I got older my view of Edward didn’t change, my view of Bella did. She went from the kind girl who always wanted to help to the kind girl who always wanted to help but was completely and utterly weak. Always relying on others to do her job for her, or to swoop in and save the day. It bothered me that these people were two very strong males. I don’t think this was Ms. Meyer’s intention to have them be two male, she just wanted to make a love triangle, but, in this case, that didn’t really work out too well. I mean, let’s be real though some of us might have cheered Jacob on, did any of us really think that Bella was going to choose him? No matter how much we wanted it? In the end, I really didn’t think there was any competition in the love triangle at all. In the end, what happened was there was another superhero added to the mix. So, yes, Twilight has some pretty big flaws, but it also gives us hope that true love really exists, (I just pray that we don’t all picture it as Edward and Bella’s relationship) and hope is a very big thing.

So, finally, Twilight is mostly for those of us who believe in true love and don’t really mind the undermining of females.

Favorite Twilight Song: A Thousand Years by Christina Perri

Sounds pretty interesting right? Tell me what you think in the comments below!

*I know there is a lot of controversy about this, so tell me what you liked and didn’t like, but please respect others’ feelings.

2.5/5 stars      Why? It was neutral. Not good, nor bad.

PG-13            Why? Some very violent/graphic parts described. A few love making scenes. Degrades females.

Fire and Ice

Fire and Ice

BY ROBERT FROST

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
