True Confessions Tuesday: I like Twilight

I said it, I like Twilight and I am not ashamed. To accompany this post I will show you a few pictures from when my mom, sister, and I made a trip to Forks a few years ago. Yes, we are super nerdy... keep up!

If you live in Washington and you like Twilight even a little bit, you should go. They go ALL out in Forks.

{Get it?}

I'll admit the Twilight series is not exactly an example of stellar writing. I am also not a huge fan of the whole delicate female who needs her big manly protector. And lets face it, Bella Swan is no Katniss Everdeen. But they are fun. Sometimes stories can just be fun. They are a pleasure (no guilt.)

Sunday I saw the latest movie. It was great, deliciously terrible and wonderfully cheesy. I loved every second.

I am probably in the minority here, but I love when books are made into movies. Don't get me wrong, I am a firm believer that you should always read the book first. The book is always better, deeper, more complicated. Some people feel that seeing the movie ruins a book for them, but I find it fascinating. I go into the movie with all the knowledge from the book and seeing it all come to life is just a bonus.

I was going to say a movie is like the icing on the cake, but lets get real, the icing is the best part. So maybe it is more like the filling, but that makes it sound too important. I guess a movie is like the sprinkles on the icing on the cake. Unnecessary, sometimes tasteless, but so pretty! Yes, that is my analogy and I'm sticking to it.

{No one would ever just lay down and fall asleep in the woods for no reason... Bella Swan, not a genius.}

{Loving in La Push}

{Don't worry, no one saw us, it was Saturday.}
 {Dorking it up.}

Did anyone else see the movie? Are you ashamed of your love of questionable literature? Tell me I'm not alone.


  1. I absolutely love the Twilight series. And I have to say this WAS the best movie so far. I would love to be able to visit Forks and LaPush. Unfortunately I live on the opposite side of the country. :(

  2. You're not alone but i did find this movie to be a bit of a let down. i was expecting more somehow!

  3. OMG! It is SO awesome to see your pics of the movie location! Love it! Breaking Dawn was alright in my opinion. I guess I had high standards set because it was my favorite book. But I also am a big twi-nerd. Although I recently finished book 1 of the Hunger Games and I am doing everything I can to get the next one! They are amazing!

  4. Ugh yeah, I silently judged people that read books like Harry Potter for years, obviously they didn't have the same steep requirements for quality literature like I did, with my English degree and anything. Then one day in a book store, I got curious and read a few pages of Twilight and was hizzzooooked! Seriously, I didn't talk to my husband for two weeks (the time that it took to read all the books) and then I went through withdrawal. The plot is ridiculous, is completely anti-feminist, the movies are super cheesy, but you're right damnit, it's fun!

    First, I love the pictures. Super cute! Second, I don't like Twilight, but I can't judge. I'm a huuuuge True Blood fan. And True Blood is nothing but delightfully trashy at best. But the men in True Blood are closer to my age so I feel better swooning over them. :)

    New reader here, I have to admit that I totally love Twilight as well. I don't even feel ashamed or guilty. Yes I'm 29 yrs old and I have read every single book and seen every single the theater...and I own them!

    BTW your daughter is adorable! Judging from the pics, she looks close to the same age as my little girl :)
