Team Love: Team Jem



You may have noticed my growing collection of Team Stickers, over on the left hand side. It is pretty much a list of boys that I would marry if they were real *sigh*. Let's just pretend, for now, that they are. You don't do that anyway? Well, I do...

Moving on. My list of boys contains the sexy and the sweet, the good and the bad, but never the ugly. Unless you are looking at pictures of Jamie Campbell Bower from The Mortal Instruments movie.

TEAM JEM (The Infernal Devices):

Seriously, if Jem dies during Clockwork Princess, I will be like this:





Jem is the ultimate sweet boy. If you imagine a boy that is soft spoken, sweet, kind, everything good about a person, you have Jem. At first, I was bias against him, because Will is related to my ultimate boy, Jace Wayland. However, as I read Clockwork Angel, and especially the sequel, Clockwork Prince, I began to realize who adorable Jem is. 

Now I am stuck in the position of choosing between two incredible boys that I love at lot. Jem is also struggling to live with his addiction to Demon drugs, and he might die. If he does die, I will seriously be like that up there. Dramatic, hey? 

What can I say? Cassandra Clare is insanely good at making people fall in love with her characters and all of a sudden rip your heart out of your chest and stomp on it.

So, my basic point is that you should read Clockwork Angel and have your heart messed with too. It's just so good!!

Clockwork Princess Countdown



As it is nearly January 2012, I am ready to begin the countdown to Clockwork Princesses release date. 

I CANNOT WAIT. Seriously, I might wait outside the bookstore until it opens, run in, buy it, and sit until it is done. Actually, I might have to go home, because I have a feeling I will be an emotional wreck at the end of one of my favourite series.

All I know is that if Jem or Will die, I will burn the book and cry myself to sleep for about a year.

Anyway, counting down starting now!  Only 80 days left until March 19th, thank goodness.

Team Love: Team Gabriel


You may have noticed my growing collection of Team Stickers, over on the left hand side. It is pretty much a list of boys that I would marry if they were real *sigh*. Let's just pretend, for now, that they are. You don't do that anyway? Well, I do...

Moving on. My list of boys contains the sexy and the sweet, the good and the bad, but never the ugly. Unless you are looking at pictures of Jamie Campbell Bower from The Mortal Instruments movie.

TEAM GABRIEL (The Chemical Gardens):


Gabriel is like the ultimate boy next door. Although his character is from the futuristic Wither by Lauren DeStephano, he is a a boy that could span any time. 

I have often said that boys from books ruin girl's perspective of real life boys. I think it creates a ridiculously high standard when every teenage girl wants the incredible Jace Wayland or Will Herondale. Gabriel is a great character to combat this, because he is a believable and relatable character who has flaws but is still a great guy.

I always pictured him as tall but not ridiculously tall, with tan skin and dark, floppy hair. 

I have not read the sequel to Wither, Fever, but it is definitely high on my to be read list. I need to find out what happens with him and Rhine, and why this quote was on tumblr, or if it is not talking about Gabriel:

Happy Holidays



Sorry I have been slightly MIA this month, I have been crazy busy with final exams and school. My reading has slowly come to a halt in the past few months, but I am looking forward to catching up over the holiday break. Hopefully it will continue next year. As for the remainder of 2012, I will begin posting my favourites lists.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone in advance!

Team Love: Team Alex


You may have noticed my growing collection of Team Stickers, over on the left hand side. It is pretty much a list of boys that I would marry if they were real *sigh*. Let's just pretend, for now, that they are. You don't do that anyway? Well, I do...

Moving on. My list of boys contains the sexy and the sweet, the good and the bad, but never the ugly. Unless you are looking at pictures of Jamie Campbell Bower from The Mortal Instruments movie.

TEAM ALEX (Delirium):


Alex Sheathes, the Invalid from the Wilds, the one who stole my heart along with Lena's. He is just my dystopian type, a soldier fighting for the good, fighting against the evil alongside Adam Kent and  Peeta Mellark.
“Lena.” Alex puts a hand on each of my elbows and guides me around to face him. When I refuse to meet his eyes, he tilts my chin upward, forcing me to look at him. “Magdalena,” he repeats, the first time since we met that he has ever used my full name. “Your mother loved you. Do you understand that? She loved you. She still loves you. She wanted you to be safe.”

“And I love you too.” His fingers skate the edge of my jaw, dance briefly over my lips. “You should know that. You have to know that.” 
He is a part of the Resistance, one of the fighters against the overpowering government who keep the cage doors locked on the population. The Resistance, and Alex, fight for justice and freedom. One thing gets in the way, though, that stops him from dedicating his entire life to the cause: Lena.

“I left a note for you one time. In the Governor’s fist, you know? I left a note for you one time. It’s impossible, too crazy to think about, and I hear myself repeating, “You left a note for me?” 
“I’m pretty sure it said something stupid. Just hi, and a smiley face, and my name. But then you stopped coming.”

Lena, a girl who was stuck inside the cage, inside the gated community of Cured, was exactly the opposite Alex. She was ready for the surgery to get rid of her emotions and become a real part of society under the totalitarian government. Alex shows her the way to a free life, one where you are allowed to read poetry and have emotions. Where you are allowed to love someone. Where you are free to love, laugh, sing, dance...all things that the government has barred from society.
“Would you like to?” he says. His voice is hardly audible above the wind— so low it’s barely a whisper.
“Would I like to what?” My heart is roaring, rushing in my ears, and though there are still several inches between his hand and mine, there’s a zipping, humming energy that connects us, and from the heat flooding my body you would think we were pressed together, palm to palm, face to face.
“Dance,” he says, at the same time closing those last few inches and finding my hand and pulling me closer, and at that second the song hits a high note and I confuse the two impressions, of his hand and the soaring, the lifting of the music. We dance.”
That would be me ^


Alex is the epitome of free. He, in my mind, has floppy hair and gorgeous eyes, strong muscles and tanned skin just breathe life into Lena's bubble wrapped world. One of my favourite things about Alex is his love for reading and how he wants to share it with Lena. Obviously, I love to read, and a boy who shares that love would be great for me. 
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.”“I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach…”“I love thee to the level of every day’s most quite need…’”He kisses each cheekbone, a delicious, skimming kiss, , barely grazing my skin “I love thee freely…”“Alex,” I say, a little louder. My heart beating so fast I’m afraid it will burst from my ribs.He pulls back and gives me a small, crooked smile. “Elizabeth Barrett Browning,” he says, then traces a finger over the bridge of my nose. “You don’t like it?”

*SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T READ PANDEMONIUM YET*

Alex pretty much IS the only team. I do not believe in having a Team Whatshisname... Okay, his name is *squints eyes* JULIAN. He bothers me. A lot. WE ALL KNEW Alex was not dead. Why Lauren Oliver. WHY?

There was NO doubt in my mind, because Lauren Oliver would not kill off the boy we have spent the first book falling absolutely in love with. So, the dreaded love triangle is born. Only the girl thinks boy number one is dead. What do you know when the supposed "love of your life" dies?! No. You do not "fall in love" with a new guy within about three minutes. Humph. TEAM ALEX ALL THE WAY.

"Don't Believe Her." *sobs* Ohhhh Alex.

Team Love: Team Peeta



You may have noticed my growing collection of Team Stickers, over on the left hand side. It is pretty much a list of boys that I would marry if they were real *sigh*. Let's just pretend, for now, that they are. You don't do that anyway? Well, I do...

Moving on. My list of boys contains the sexy and the sweet, the good and the bad, but never the ugly. Unless you are looking at pictures of Jamie Campbell Bower from The Mortal Instruments movie.

TEAM PEETA (The Hunger Games):

Ohhh Peeta. He is just the sweetest. If I could choose one boyfriend that I would love to bring home to meet my parents, it would be Peeta Mellark. He is absolutely adorable. The picture is correct, he always knows what to say. I just sit here, reading and squeal, giggle, cry, laugh, and whatever else because he is just awesome.

"You love me. Real or not real?"
"Real" ...*bursts into tears*

I am not sure why anyone would be Team Gale, when Peeta is there with Katniss throughout the Hunger Games twice, and cares for her. I really believe that Peeta understands Katniss so much better than Gale ever could after the games, because their experience changed them so much. It's kind of like Bella in Twilight. Before Edward moved to Forks, she would have married Jacob, they would have lived happily ever after with tons of kids. Edward did come to town, and it was the cataclysmic event that changed Bella's world. If Katniss and Peeta had not been chosen for the Hunger Games, there is no doubt in my mind that she would have married Gale, but because they were chosen, she could not have been with anyone but Peeta. The end of my Anti-Gale rant.

I also don't understand why the world is not filled with Peeta Mellarks. Maybe I'll just marry Josh Hutcherson. When I first found out that he was Peeta, I was not happy. At all. Then, I went to see the movie, and I FELL IN LOVE all over again. How is he the perfect Peeta?! Okay, Peeta is tallish and blond, and Josh is short with brown hair. But still, they made it work, and now I honestly couldn't choose a better Peeta to have played him in the movie.



OKAY.

Awkward Book Covers: Rant 2

This is my own meme to contrast the posts I do about cover love :)


Okay, just no. This cover is just not good at all, no offense to the authors or the people who made the cover. There are just no words, because it looks like some just took a picture of a creepy looking dude with greasy hair, and put some text boxes in front of it. 

In a market where visual display is what draws the reader in the most, this book lacks any sort of draw for me.

What do you think?

Team Love: Team Will



You may have noticed my growing collection of Team Stickers, over on the left hand side. It is pretty much a list of boys that I would marry if they were real *sigh*. Let's just pretend, for now, that they are. You don't do that anyway? Well, I do...

Moving on. My list of boys contains the sexy and the sweet, the good and the bad, but never the ugly. Unless you are looking at pictures of Jamie Campbell Bower from The Mortal Instruments movie.

TEAM WILL (The Infernal Devices):

Yes, yes, I know I can't chose both and only one can really end up with Tessa, but:



Well, I might care a little when I am crying at the end of Clockwork Princess. So far, however, my heart is torn down the middle. One side is the sexy, Will side, and the other is the cute, sweet, Jem side.

Today I am the Will side, because he is so great. If you have read both the Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices, it is obvious that Jace is a descendant of Will. He is so hilariously witty, with a dark and twisty, tortured inner battle that is so like Jace. I don't understand how a boy who fighting against himself, but keeps a false face for everyone else is attractive, but it is. In multiple centuries.

Will, the tall, dark haired, English boy is just my cup of tea. As Tessa's mean, confusing kind-of friend, he is just great. Annnd I've just been rambling on about his greatness without actually telling you anything...

He is a Shadowhunter who accidentally released a demon when he was twelve that told him anyone he loved would die. He left home so his family wouldn't suffer, and became an orphan at the London Institute, where he met Jem Carstairs, another orphaned Shadowhunter. Jem became his parabatai, and because Jem was already slowly dying of demon poison, Will felt like he could love him, because he wouldn't be causing his death. Talk about bromance! These two are so adorable, you just don't want Tessa to choose either.

Actually... I'm probably leaning more towards Team Will for Clockwork Princess, but I feel really confused and sad and panicked and....


Anyway, so he only lets himself love Jem, until Tessa arrives and he can't stop thinking about her. He tries to hide his feeling so she can't get close to him and die because of the demon's curse, but she falls for his attractiveness and tortured soul and his love for reading that she shares. So begins the tornado of emotions that I feel when reading about Will and Tessa's relationship.
"I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted- and then I realized that I truly just wanted you. The girl behind the scrawled letters. I loved you from the moment I read them. I love you still."
Although he has the public, conceited side, Tessa brings out the adorable, soft side of Will that makes you just want to squeal with happiness.
“He bent to put his cheek against hers. His breath against her ear made her shudder with each deliberately spoken word. "I have wanted to do this," he said, "every moment of every hour of every day that I have been with you since the day I met you.”  
I definitely need to go back and read these again. Will's sad, pained side and his funny, conceited side collide into one HILARIOUS boy. Plus, the DSBS is worth reading any day.
“Are you implying that shreds of my reputation remain intact?" Will demanded with mock horror. "Clearly I have been doing something wrong. Or not something wrong, as the case may be." 
He banged on the side of the carriage. "Thomas! We must away at once to the nearest brothel. I seek scandal and low companionship.”

HE'S JUST SO ATTRACTIVE AND SAD. I can't take it.


YES. I LOVE YOU. I CHOOSE YOU.

Pondering Alex Pettyfer


I was looking at my stats the other day, and a post about Alex Pettyfer is always on my most- viewed list. I started to ponder why that was. My initial thoughts were: people probably just look on Google images, and I just happen to post a lot of pictures of the hottie. My second thought was: why are people so attracted to him. If you aren't, that's okay, but a LOT of people are. What makes him so fundamentally attractive. His jaw-line? His hair? His overall sexiness that cannot be compared to most boys?

It also strikes me that I have read many online articles about his bad behaviour on set, or arrogance. I think this may help to figure out what makes him so attractive: He knows it.

He knows he is attractive, he knows he's good looking, etc. He works it, because he knows how to manipulate it, I think.

I know that many of the articles were probably false, but it honestly wouldn't surprise me. How could someone so hot not know it? It has got to be pretty obvious when your sexy meter has broken, because you are just THAT sexy.


If I met him, I would probably faint. That would be okay though, because he would probably carry me off in search of help. I know, in my dreams, right?

What does this have to do with a book bog, you may be wondering? Yes, well...I don't know, but let's say it has to do with the fact that Alex Pettyfer should play any boy in any book adaptation ever.

ARC Review: Burn for Burn

Title: Burn for Burn
Series: Burn for Burn (#1)
Authors: Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
Pages: 368
Release Date: September 18, 2012

BIG GIRLS DON'T CRY...
THEY GET EVEN.

Lillia has never had any problems dealing with boys who like her. Not until this summer, when one went too far. No way will she let the same thing happen to her little sister.

Kat is tired of the rumours, the insults, the cruel jokes. It all goes back to one person– her ex-best friend– and she's ready to make her pay.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she's not the same girl anymore. And she's ready to prove it to him.

Three very different girls who want the same thing: sweet, sweet revenge. And they won't stop until they each had a taste.

Film Friday: Comparing The Hunger Games


So, just over two years ago, I made a post about rumoured Hunger Games casting. I figured I'd do with it what I did HERE with the City of Bones cast. Amber Skye and I made our own cast for the upcoming Mortal Instruments movie, and I compared our original thoughts to the end result HERE.


On October 29, 2010, I posted about the rumoured Katniss possibilities, and who I thought should be Jace (HERE).

Rumoured Katniss: 


There were many rumours for Katniss, including Kristen Stewart, Malese Jow, Kaya Scodelario, and Chloe Moretz. I was completely against Kristin Stewart because of the whole Twilight fiasco. My favourite was Kaya Scodelario, because she looked the most like my imagine of Katniss, and I believe she could pull off the hard- shelled Katniss.

Real Katniss:


I was so against Jennifer Lawrence in the beginning, because I didn't like the idea of anyone playing Katniss (unless it was me...). However, after seeing the movie, she was PERFECT. She was so good.

My Peeta:



Alex Pettyfer is pretty much a Greek God, who was put on this planet for me to drool over...And I like to cast him in all of my movie roles, hoping that I will one day get just ONE. I usually cast him in all blond guy roles (Jace, Peeta, etc.), however, I sometimes try to sneak him into a brunette role. I tried to cast him as Will Herondale, until Amber Skye, my affiliate, made me see the error of my ways....and the hotness of Douglas Booth. Anyway, he is not my perfect Peeta, he probably would have been if he he's actually my perfect Jace Wayland. However, I picked him as the closet boy I could think of at the time, and I really like that picture of him for Peeta!

Real Peeta: 


At first, I was a little offended, I kept saying " EW Why did they pick some short, brunette random that I have never seen??". Yes, don't kill me. I have now seen the movie, and the error in my ways. I LOVE HIM *fangirls* They could not have found a more perfect Peeta in my mind. It turns out the casting people knew more than I thought ;). That being said, I can't wait for Catching Fire to come out next year! If you haven't seen The Hunger Games yet, please watch it!! Even my sister, who dislikes any stories other than real-world ones, watched Hunger Games five times.

Pondering eBooks vs. Physical Books


As physical books have started to become more obsolete, I struggle against the majority of people rushing for eBooks. Kindles, Nooks, the Sony eReader, and other electronic books have begun their takeover on the internet.

I will admit that I own an eReader, however, I still yearn to turn physical pages and see the progress I'm making in a book. I still have an extensive collection of physical books, and the dream of having a house with my personal library in it someday, sliding ladders and all.

I will not argue that electronic readers have not revolutionized reading, and made it available for a larger market. It also allows travelers to carry around hundreds of books, without breaking their back, or the bank when they pay an excess baggage charge.

There is still a part of me that feels guilty when I argue that bookstores should not close, and yet I am either buying cheaper books online, or buying electronic books. Although I feel the guilt, there is also the selfish part of me that feels like buying the cheaper is so much better. If I go to a bookstore, a new book is $17-$20, (Remember when The Host came out, and it was $30?!), and I can buy the same new book for $9 online.

It's sad that bookstores are slowly becoming obsolete, but the prices and easiness of buying online outweighs the bookstores for many people.

Film Friday: The Hobbit


I have come up with my own meme, Film Friday. Every week I will talk about a movie that is being adapted from a book. I will update you with news of the upcoming film. This week's topic is the upcoming movie, The Hobbit.

The prequel to the Lord of the Rings doesn't seem to have the same cult-like following as LOTR. However, as the Hobbit is being made in the same vein as the other movies, I'm sure it will be incredibly popular. It comes out exactly one month from today, Friday, December 14th.

I read the book for school about five years ago, and I still think I will see the movie. Mostly out of curiosity about the quality of the movie in relation to the original movies (I should probably watch the last one first...).

There has been some speculation about where they will end the first part of the Hobbit's story, and whether or not it will be a trilogy. There has also been some stressing about New Zealand's economic situation, which is struggling more than it was eleven years again when the first movie was released.

It will also be interesting to see if the new addition to the Lord of the Rings story will roll in as much money as the original trilogy. NZ $353 million was made from the first trilogy, and it will be difficult for the new movie to come close to a third. Do you think the movie will succeed or suffer?

Awkward Book Covers: Rant 1

I decided that I am going to start my own meme where I can rant about bad book covers... or just covers I don't particularly like, seeing as I already post about covers I love! I have a short rant for you today about awkward book covers. I was just on google the other day, and I came across this book cover:


How Awkward. First of all, they look extremely cramped in there. Second of all, that car looks like one of the creepy vans from a Forensic Files. Third of all, if it is a creepy van from Forensic Files, why are they so scrunched up in the front?! It doesn't make sense. Especially since her back must be jammed into the steering wheel. Apparently love makes you ignore back pain, or large wheels protruding into your back? I don't know, but I'm not a fan of this book cover. 

How about you?

Team Love: Team Jace



You may have noticed my growing collection of Team Stickers, over on the left hand side. It is pretty much a list of boys that I would marry if they were real *sigh*. Let's just pretend, for now, that they are. You don't do that anyway? Well, I do...

Moving on. My list of boys contains the sexy and the sweet, the good and the bad, but never the ugly. Unless you are looking at pictures of Jamie Campbell Bower from The Mortal Instruments movie.

TEAM JACE (The Mortal Instruments):




If there was one book boy I could choose, I would be Jace Wayland. He is the best of the best, the hottest of the hotties, the dreamiest of the dreamy.

He's tall, blond, and supposedly the most good looking boy on the planet- my dream boy. Alas, it is not to be between us. I will just have to carry on dreaming about him though.

He is definitely my ideal book boy, the kind that you just want to squeal for, even though you'd probably never be with a boy like him in real life. I can't tell you how many times I have been reading The Mortal Instruments and either fallen on my bed squealing, or desperately tried to stop myself from giggling to myself at school. Especially when he says things like this:

“I know it's wrong - God, it's all kinds of wrong - but I just want to lie down with you and wake up with you, just once, just once ever in my life.” 

He is just SO GREAT. When it was between Jace and Simon, I honestly had no idea why anyone would Team Simon, because Jace is so strong and witty and... perfect :D There is really nothing else to say. I must say, however, that I was extremely disappointed and in shock when the movie was cast with Jamie Campbell Bower as the amazingwonderfulgorgeous Jace Wayland. I don't think JCB is any of those things...

Review: Losing It by Cora Carmack

Bliss Edwards is about to graduate from college and still has her virginity. Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, she decides the best way to deal with the problem is to lose it as quickly and simply as possible-- a one-night stand. 

But her plan turns out to be anything but simple when she freaks out and leaves a gorgeous guy alone and naked in her bed with an excuse that no one with half-a-brain would ever believe. 

And as if if that weren't embarrassing enough, when she arrives for her first class of her last college semester, she recognizes her new theatre professor. She'd left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier. (from goodreads.com)

Pondering Book Trailers


Book Trailer #1: "OOOOH That looks good!"
Book Trailer #2: "EW that looks horrific. I will NOT be reading that."

This is basically what every sleepover I have ever had with my affiliate, Amber Skye, sounds like. She forces book trailers on me...literally, holds my eyes open to make me watch. Okay, maybe that is a little exaggerated.

Anyway, my point is that I have never been a lover of book trailers. Honestly, I had not seen a book trailer until Amber came along...and I'm not entirely sure whether or not it is a good thing that I have now seen them.

If I watch them, I tend to make a decision based on the awful acting, bad script, etc., and it can skew my opinion of a book I had on my to-read list. On the other hand, the trailer could be awesome, and I might need to add that book to my list.

I know my feelings are ambivalent, so I can't quite make a concrete statement: Yes, I like book trailers, or No, I don't.

I have seen good, and bad, and they sometimes bore me. However, if I start watching them, I have difficulty stopping because there's that annoying, yet amazing list on the right side of Youtube screaming at me "Oh, you just want to watch ME before you log off."

And now....I don't really know where my pondering was going. What do you think about book trailers?

A book trailer that I didn't like, Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi:


A book trailer that changed my mind for the better, was Insignia by S.J. Kincaid:

Dream Cast: Losing It by Cora Carmack

I recently read Cora Carmack's book, Losing It, and she also recently posted about a contest on her blog: make your dream cast for Losing It (read the post HERE). So obviously, I hopped right on Google images, and searched for swoony boys that could possibly be my perfect Garrick. I did find a boy, which became the basis of my contest post, but he is not the PERFECT image that I see in my head. So, here we go...

GARRICK:

Aka, my favourite swoonerific boy from Losing It. I always have a hard picturing blond book-boys as blond. I always end up picturing a brown, swishy hair type boy. And let me tell you, I picked a hot one this time, JED TEXAS.


*swoon* He. Is. Lovely. And he's English, so that's a plus if they ever make the movie! He's 6'2", with blue eyes like Garrick. He's about as perfect as I think I could get to match it to my mind. Well, I saw him and decided I didn't need to look any further anyway.

BLISS: 

Bliss was a hard one for me, because she doesn't really describe herself much, and she doesn't have the highest of confidence levels. I pictured her with long brown hair, and I saw her as pretty but without the confidence of someone who knows they are pretty. I found this picture, and I actually have no idea who the model is, but I liked her for Bliss!


CADE: 

Okay, even though my heart left me when Garrick arrived, I still found Cade absolutely adorable. As Bliss' best friend, his commitment to her was so sweet. He was the perfectly cute friend, too bad Garrick was hotter.



For Cade, I chose Landon Liboiron, because I thought he had a sort-of boy-next-door, sweet look about him. Cade is reliable and emotional, and I could see that being a possible for Landon as an actor.

KELSEY:

Kelsey is Bliss' friend who forces her to go out and be sociable, which leads to Garrick and Bliss meeting (Thank you Kelsey). I picture her blond and pretty, the typical pretty girl who is attempting to be an actress. I don't know this girl's name either, but she fits my description of Kelsey :)


What do you think of my dream Cast? Look out for my review of Losing It, coming soon!

Team Love: Team Edward



You may have noticed my growing collection of Team Stickers, over on the left hand side. It is pretty much a list of boys that I would marry if they were real *sigh*. Let's just pretend, for now, that they are. You don't do that anyway? Well, I do...

Moving on. My list of boys contains the sexy and the sweet, the good and the bad, but never the ugly. Unless you are looking at pictures of Jamie Campbell Bower from The Mortal Instruments movie.

Team Edward (Twilight)-


This isn't exactly how I pictured him, I just didn't want a picture of Robert Pattinson :)

Edward Cullen... He was probably my first book boy crush back in middle school. Even the movies have ruined the reputation of the saga, and my view of Edward, I still count the book version as one of my Teams. Though I am team Jacob in the movies (only because Taylor Lautner is really good looking), Edward was always the one who pulled on my heartstrings while reading the books. 

Not only is he tall, handsome, attractive, nice smelling, and smart, he is totally in love with Bella. Yes, yes, I know he struggles with trying not to kill her, but I find it so cute that he loves her so much, when he could probably just have any girl ever.

I still can't decide if I am going to watch the last Breaking Dawn movie. I probably should, because I have seen all of the others at the midnight release, I'm just kind of done with them by now. However, I think any time I go back and reread Twilight, I will still love Edward Cullen.
