Hi all! Welcome to my second book to movie adaptation review, where today I’m going to be talking about Twilight!
This is actually the first time I’ve ever watched Twilight – and I was really looking forward to it. I finished the book for the first time last week, and I adored it. You can read my full book review here!
But it might not surprise you if I said I didn’t expect to enjoy the entire franchise – books and movies. After all, the whole thing appears to have bad review after bad review…and when I read the book, this shocked me for the first time. Although the writing is simple, it’s not bad. Although the book is cheesy, it kept me hooked. Although Bella is whiny, I think she has a good reason to be. And finally, although the romance is ever-lingering, I felt like it wasn’t as instant as I expected it to be.
However, watching the movie…kind of made me understand why so many people dislike Twilight.
